Steelers top pick Devin Bush shows interesting fashion flair
We all know what Devin Bush will be wearing come September — black and gold.
But we weren’t exactly sure what he was wearing on Thursday for the NFL draft when the Pittsburgh Steelers selected him in the first round.
He’s set to be introduced to the media at 5 p.m. Friday. We have to admit we’re curious to see his fashion choice then.
Bush had people buzzing not only about his talent but his fashion sense.
His outfit has been described as black suit with what appeared to be a white sling built in it. And no shirt. He also sported a statement necklace and large sunglasses.

His style of choice came with help from Jatannio, a Los Angeles-based stylist who also suggested the fitting for the outfit be held at the University of Michigan Museum of Art in Ann Arbor, according to the Detroit Free Press. Jatannio built three suits for Bush to try, American and Italian labels with add-ons inspired by designers like Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton and sunglasses by Celine, the newspaper said.

I called all around Ann Arbor, Michigan trying to find a location for @dbush_10 fitting. So many declined my request. I must admit I was a little frustrated. However, in the same vein I thought “What would @djkhaled do 🤷🏾♂️? So in the words of Khaled. . . “They didn’t want me to have a fitting room. So I took over a Museum “ 💪🏾💯🙌🏾 . . Thank you #universityofmichiganmuseumofart for complimenting my vision and allowing the Million dollar #picasso painting to sit in too 😂🤷🏾♂️🙏🏾💪🏾. . . . #nfldraft2019 #wardrobefitting #mensfashion #menswear #NFL #style #fashion
Jatannio told the Detroit Free Press: “I feel like Devin is a very unconventional guy. His look, especially his hair, is like super unconventional. He is an impact player, so I feel like that he should be impactful on both sides, in like fashion style, lifestyle. So I thought it would be something great if we worked together to build a brand. Just build a lifestyle for him, so that’s what I’m here to do.”
Devin Bush has a style all his own, on the football field and in fashion. I spent a few hours with him when he got fitted for the suit he'll wear to next week's NFL draft. My story on the Michigan LB, with photos from @ryangarzafreep https://t.co/ej3AZk8tvo via @freep

Bush wasn’t the only “runway look” being critiqued on social media.
The No. 1 overall pick — Kyler Murray — sported a pinkish-purple suit, including a vest and crisp white sneakers. He previously played for Texas A&M and Oklahoma.
“I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me.”

Ed Oliver was the ninth overall pick by the Buffalo Bills. The University of Houston star showed off the inside of his coat lining, which features photos of the famous “Be Someone” graffiti that sits over Houston’s North Freeway, according to the Houston Chronicle.
