One Thing You Don't Know: Trai Turner


CHARLOTTE – OK, so if you follow Trai Turner on Instagram, you know he's a bit of a fashionista.

But did you know just how committed Carolina's Pro Bowl right guard is to his clothes?

When asked which single article of clothing he would salvage in a hypothetical nightmare where he could choose just one, Turner simply couldn't decide.

"To be honest, I'm the guy that would run into the fire and run back out with a huge pile of clothes," Turner said with a laugh. "You know what I'm saying? Like, I need all this.

"As materialistic as it may sound, those are my threads man. The threads are important. That's my way of speaking without saying anything."

So how does Turner define his style?

"It's a vibe, man," Turner explained. "You always want to be comfortable, you always want to be clean. If you step in it and you feel good? Yeah, it's a fit."

Turner was particularly proud of his outfit for the recent road trip to Philadelphia, which you can see below. It's not as loud as some of Turner's other looks, but he liked how it all came together.

"I went to Brooks Brothers in South Park and I said I need a cashmere sweater. I found some colors that I wanted to mess with – a vibrant mustard. I said, 'Ok, what can set this mustard out? A blue blazer,'" Turner said. "Then I needed some nice pants, some chinos. I had to offset it with a nice shoe, so I rode over to Neiman Marcus and found a nice shoe.

"It's fun to find the stuff. And then you get to put it all together and people are like, 'Man, that looks nice!' And then I'm like, 'I know.'"
