Walt Frazier has been razzling and dazzling with his flair for fashion since the late 1960s, but the 21st century has added greatly to his degree of difficulty.

Upon showing up at the Garden on Tuesday night wearing a new ensemble that featured a light green suit speckled with yellow dots, the MSG analyst said he is much less likely than he used to be to repeat himself.

That is because pictures of whatever he wears to Knicks games find their way onto the Internet, so he tries never to wear the same outfit more than three times in a season, if that.

Frazier pointed in particular to the website, which also has iterations on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest. It documents, archives and grades Clyde's outfits.

"It's amazing, man," Frazier said. "I don't know where he gets the pictures . . . Every game he's got me standing and talking and smiling [during MSG telecasts]."

The site does help Frazier critique himself. He will look back at previous color combinations and assess which worked well and which did not.

Tuesday night's suit scored an A-minus, by the way.
