LSU basketball broke out the gold uniforms Wednesday night for their SEC opener against Kentucky at the Maravich Center. And coach Will Wade?

He stole the show with a white shirt, LSU gold tie and the greatest purple jacket ever.

The Tigers played toe-to-toe with the Wildcats but weren't able to fashion an upset, losing 74-71 before a crowd of 11,952.

And about that jacket? When prodded about it at the post-game news conference, Wade commented, "You can't buy this off the rack."

Wade's wife, Lauren, told The Advocate that her husband's jacket is custom made by Harper's Haberdashery and owner Sam Willard.
