For railbirds who are following Phelps the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure must note that Michael Phelps is almost unrecognizable and is wearing a sort of biker look. According to USA Today, Phelps’ wardrobe seems to be a sort of mixed and matched look. “Phelps has the back-skewed hat of Justin Bieber, the hipster spectacles of an NBA player who’s trying too hard, the goatee of a guy in a bar who propositions your wife while you’re in the bathroom and a jacket…well, the jacket looks fine. Is that Under Armour?”

There is also much being said that Phelps’ attire should go on “What Not To Wear”.
