Jay Wright Suit Watch: Stanford

Three-pieces, again.

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Despite a poor shooting effort and being out-rebounded by a hefty margin the Villanova Wildcats will be playing in the finals of the NIT Season Tipoff on Friday after defeating the Stanford Cardinal, 59-45.

It was going to be a wildcard day. What would be appropriate styling for a Thanksgiving afternoon affair against a Pac-12 opponent in Brooklyn? Jay Wright could have been conservative, could have been festive, could have been straight business-like. Unsurprisingly, he was all of the above as the Villanova head coach owned the sidelines of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday.

In a return to his decadent three-piece look for the third time in five games, Wright donned a navy suit highlighted by lavender stripes; a suit that has only been worn twice before; most recently in the NCAA Tournament against Lafayette. Underneath, he wore a light pink shirt and solid pink tie.

He finished the look off with a fuchsia pocket square and an unidentifiable lapel pin
