Lebron James and his Cavalier teammates arrived at Bankers Life Fieldhouse last night looking suave coordinated in flawless bespoke threads by renowned fashion designer Thom Browne.
“All of us suiting up together was just a new idea and something we all wanted to try,” says James.
According to the New York Times the suit idea was originally conceived by Lebron’s former teammate Dwyane Wade (and his fashion stylist Calyann Barnett) prior to his departure back to Miami.
This concept isn’t new, Footballers overseas are known to arrive on gameday in matching made-to-measure uniforms, but it was fun to see NBA guys do it for change.
The designer selection was key as well, Thom Browne is a master at his craft. His signature cropped silhouette is distinct. It takes a cool guy(s) to pull off a Thom Browne suit right.
To Lebron and his teammates, this is more than just about fashion though, it’s about unity: “It definitely creates a feeling like we are one and in this together.” says James
