Off White and Yeezys are always good but Simmons’ pants are hot enough to take those pieces two-on-one…

Ben 3-1 Donovan

It’s all Gucci for Simmons in this round.

Is Simmons going to blow a 3-1 lead!?


Simmons in denim, so let’s do a denim round because it's the thing right now

Ben 4-2 Donovan

But Simmons has the Givenchy and LV accessories to power him to the finish. Style ROTY! We have to give this to Simmons.
