Miami Dolphins player Andre Branch has a closet that could pass for a New York City fashion editor’s. Not only does he own pretty much every label under the sun, but his custom-built bedroom turned closet is kept so pristine and organized that we considered asking him to come on over and help a few sisters out. Seriously.

It’s no secret that Branch, who has been playing for the Dolphins for almost two years now, has a heavy interest in fashion: In the past Complex has called out his diverse sneaker collection, and he’s been known to give fellow teammates styling advice. Not only that, but during his 2017 off-season he did an internship at Rag & Bone and currently collaborates with accessory brand Adees Co. While we knew all of this walking into his new and freshly renovated Miami home, we were still blown away by the vastness of brands and pieces that Branch owned. We kid you not, there were 15+ pairs of Jordan 1’s alone, all of the best collabs (think Virgil Abloh’s Nikes, Tom Sachs NikeCraft Mars Yard Shoe, Pharrells Adidas NMDs, etc.), multiple pairs of Visvims, Gucci sneakers on Gucci sneakers, CHANEL loafers, and so. much. more. The guy even has a separate closet for his hats and sunglasses.

Not only does the 6'5" football player know how to dress himself (a tough feat for such a tall man), but he also knows how to decorate a home. Dior and Supreme skate decks hung in Branch’s front room around a James Perse pool table, art by the likes of Mr. Brainwash and Retna flooded the walls, and in the corner of his living room stood a four-foot Kaws Companion. The place was so decked out that we were blown away to hear the athlete had only moved in a few weeks prior.
