The New York Knicks are currently in London where they are taking on the Detroit Pistons at the O2 arena for a regular season match-up, and welcome back Iman Shumpert as I just watched him score his first basket as I’m writing this post. Prior to the game day British GQ had a chance to chat with Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony, assembling a superb interview as Melo talked on his personal style,fashion advice he would give to taller guys,his love for sunglasses and watches,inspiration for his M9 sneakers, and much more. Check out a preview below, click to read full interview.
I have a bunch of timepieces. I love collecting watches – ever since I could start affording them. I could never afford watches, but now I take time to educate myself and learn about them.
When I’m not going to the tailor, places like Rag & Bone and Ralph Lauren cater to the taller guys. So I’ve been trying to have fun with some of their pieces. Myself and Rag & Bone have formed a relationship over the last couple of years, and we’re looking to try and do some bigger things.
I like to get out and see what’s out there. Go to boutique shops, try and mess around and play around with different brands and different styles of clothes. It’s not so much about shopping at the big brand name stores, it’s about finding things that you can connect with.
