Michael Jordan offends country club by wearing cargo pants

Streeter Lecka

Michael Jordan has reportedly been banned from a Miami country club because of a refusal to change out of his cargo pants.

Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan has made some odd fashion choices over the last few years, and his latest snafu has reportedly gotten him banned from Miami's La Gorce Country Club. The offending article of clothing? Cargo pants.

The New York Post first reported that Jordan arrived at the golf course in cargo pants, and was subsequently asked to change because the pants violated the swanky club's dress code. When Jordan refused to do so, he was banned from returning.

Jordan's PR rep offered this comment on the incident (via Deadspin):

Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it's their loss - as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest.

The idea of the great Michael Jordan getting in a spat with club officials over something like cargo pants is a quite hilarious one, and it seems like banning somebody over something so trivial is going a bit far. Especially when it's somebody like Jordan.

But apparently this club won't make exceptions for anybody, even if it is the best player to ever play the game of basketball. As Jordan's PR rep says, "it's their loss."
