The soda company partnered with designer Mark McNairy, who the Wall Street Journal dubbed “king of menswear collaborations” last year and who GQ has called one of their favorite designers, to create a “Triple Double Breasted Suit.” It’ll be made for the Oklahoma City Thunder guard to wear later this year. Mountain Dew is also going to sell Westbrook MVP cans that’ll only be available in Oklahoma City.

Clarkson has been recognized for his style beyond the sports community. Garnering interest from the fashion community and mentions in major outlets such as Vogue, he has turned into something of a fashion icon. While he may rock Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent, he mixes it up with more everyday brands as an ode to his younger days when he couldn’t afford the major brands. “I feel like [my style] has always been the same,” he said. “Just having access to names now makes it a lot easier. Sometimes I didn’t like what I had to buy, but now I can actually get what I want. Growing up, I used to wear whatever. Everything Vans, just a bunch of stuff. I used to shop in H&M, Urban Outfitters. I still go to those shops, mix it all in. I feel like that’s how my style is different, you’ll see me wearing a little bit of everything.”
