Forget the drop catch trousers and leather trackpants that Kanye West convinced your boyfriend was a good idea, basketball player Russell Westbrook has taken it up a notch with a collection of tights for men.

Yes, it's happening.

Just as you've conceded that despite what fashion mavens might tell you, tights CAN be pants, it's not time for the men to have a turn at extreme comfort fashioned into a style statement.

Westbrook, who plays for the Oklahoma Thunder and who is really into fashion having been spotted sitting next to Anna Wintour at fashion week, has collaborated with Barneys and Jordan to create the multi-coloured, animal print heavy collection of high fashion performance wear.

It is fierce, and one supposes, makes you fast.

The collection also includes a lot of pieces made out of 'dri-fit' material including bomber jackets and shorts.

But it's the new tight silhouette for men - which encourages men to not wear shorts over their tights when working out because these tights are made to be seen in - that really stands out.

On, and off the court. 

Boys, are you ready for this? 

See the whole collection here.
