When it comes to bridging the gap between fitness and fashion, nobody does it better than the members of the NBA.
This is in part due to the dress code introduced in 2005 that dictated that all players must wear a suit jacket while on the bench, during interviews, and charity events.
“I was pretty shocked when I heard (about the new dress code). And it’s not that I don’t believe in guys in suits, because I think Michael Jordan and Pat Riley really started something special. But guys should still be able to have an individuality,” GQ Creative Director, Jim Moore.
While there is a lot of controversy surrounding this dress code, as it bans certain apparel linked to the Hip-Hop culture, most players have embraced this idea and become fashion icons in their own right, showing up in custom tailored, designer suits.
“There is nothing easier or stylish that a guy can wear than a suit. Because if you can wear a suit, you’re basically dressed, you just have to figure out what the certain tie is that goes with it,” Jim Moore.
We’re all about style at Fitmark and we craft our bags with the same precision and attention to detail that goes into a designer suit. We’ve picked four top ballers who have kicked this dress code where it hurts and taken on a personal style to be admired.
