Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte appeared on Good Morning America today to tell his side of the Rio-robbery story, which ended up costing him his contract with Speedo, and also to build up some hype for his new gig on Dancing with the Stars (snazzy). For some reason, maybe to appeal to GMA’s massive audience, he wore dad jeans. And not the cool kind.

The big problem here is that the jeans are several sizes too big (FWIW, the wash is perfectly fine). They’re hanging unnervingly low on his hips, are too loose through his legs, and have a ridiculous amount of break at the hem. The Olympic swimmer is literally swimming in his pants. Making matters worse is the fact that he wore the jeans with too-fancy monk-strap shoes and a white dress shirt. His baggy jeans might have looked somewhat purposeful if he’d worn them with say, lace-up boots and a polo-shirt, but instead they just look like a big ol’ mistake. And Lochte’s made enough of those recently. Stylists, please save this man from himself.
