“Tonight I’m wearing a tuxedo from J.Lindeberg, a Swedish brand” said New York Rangers hotshot Carl Hagelin in his recent discussion with Mens Fitness Magazine during New York Rangers Casino Night fundraiser for MSG’s Garden of Dreams Foundation.

A classic European style. I like to wear tight jeans. Most of my stuff is pretty slim fit. We wear suits before and after every game. At a dinner with the guys on the team, I like to wear nice jeans and some desert boots. Growing up in Europe, tight clothing is pretty standard. When I got to college, clothes were loose so I was going toward more loose stuff. As soon as I got back to New York, I started wearing suits 25% of the year. Then, I realized how important it is for the suit to really fit you and be tight. Traveling to different parts of the world—Sweden, Michigan, New York—has helped develop my style.
For guys who are into fitness, I think it’s important to wear slim-fit stuff that is pretty tight so they can show off the bodies they have been working hard to have. Women are going to appreciate that.
