Check out a preview of Chandler’s ESPN The Magazine feature below. This issue is currently available on newsstands everywhere.
How important is style when you’re on the road?
It’s really important, you’re going to these places where there are a lot of cameras everywhere you go, so you always want to look the part. Anytime fans see you, you want to project the image that you really look like a true professional and you take basketball seriously.
Anything else about you’re traveling style you want to add?
I love Marc Jacobs. I’m pretty bold with my outfits. My clothes are very European fitting, not baggy. I get my clothes tailored. And I try different things. I wear the skinny colored pants. I wear cropped pants. Coaches get on me because I’ll wear cropped colored pants, with a polka-dotted button-up and a cardigan over it. It’s a product of my personality—not a lot of people have the confidence to go there.
