Yesterday Drake began revealing some of the OVO Summer Collection and it doesn't look like one GQ writer enjoyed it at all.

Instead of voting the outfit way way way up, he had a few choice words about a particular yellow sweat suit.

"From the looks of it, the gear is meant to be a nod to Ralph Lauren's signature pony and sleeve numbering that you'll find at any Macy's, which is nothing knew for streetwear.

But the color is awfully Big Bird-ish," commented Jake Woolf of GQ.

He prefaced that statement by giving Drake a not for being one of the most stylish men and says he's rooting for him to make the 20 Most Stylish Men Alive. He also said that the fact that Drizzy tends to take things a bit too far is one of the reasons he was a runner up this year.

It does appear that the bright yellow jumpsuit might be Drake doing a little too much.

If you're someone who needs to stand out from the crowd by all means go ahead and rock it but it just looks that he skinned Pac-Man for that sweatsuit.

"Look, we're not anti-yellow here at GQ," said Woolf.

"A few years ago we even named it one of the hottest trends of the season.

Nor are we anti sweat-suit (haven't you heard we're all in on sportscore?) But we can't help but get the feeling that Drizzy is wearing the full mustard get-up ironically ("ha-ha guys, don't I look silly?!" Answer: Yes)."

Looks like Drake might have struck out with the yellow sweatsuit, however, the rest of the OVO Summer Collection looks pretty promising. Let us know what you think of Drizzy's yellow sweatsuit below.
