OKLAHOMA CITY — Well, he did it again. At this point, it would be disappointing if Russell Westbrook wasn’t wearing an outlandish, hipster, buttoned-all-the-way-up, trend-setting look for his post-game interviews.

Thunder fans were on the edge of their seats, waiting to see what look the superstar would sport.

The owners at local hipster hangout, Blue7, have noticed how Westbrook is helping keep hipster fashion in the limelight.

It is great for business.

“We’ve seen Westbrook a lot and thought, ‘We have that shirt. We have those glasses.’” Blue7 owner Caleb Arter said.

The folks at Black Optical in Classen Curve carry the same brand of glasses Westbrook wears.

Owner, Ryan Bowling, is totally OK with the no-lenses look.

“I’m an optician but I’m not so old school that I think that it lacks authenticity if you don’t have the lenses in. I think it really shows a sense of individual style. I also love that this city is not only behind their team but also their players,” he said.

Game 2 is Thursday night at 8 p.m.

Fans are anxiously awaiting Westbrook’s next move.
