We caught up with MLB second baseman Howie Kendrick to discuss his recent move to the L.A. Dodgers, sense of style, favorite designers and much more.

JM: You’re a Dodger now, a little more lights, camera and action then what you are probably use to surrounding the Angels, does that affect your style now?

HK: No not at all I just wear what I like.

JM: As an athlete, is fashion important to you?

HK: Very much so, I like to look good.

JM: What’s your staple go to piece in your wardrobe?

HK: For me it’s t-shirts by John Elliot & Co, most of my staple t-shirts are John Elliot, I also like Fear of God.

JM: I love Fear of God!

HK: Yes, Jerry is doing his thing with Fear of God, I wear their cross cropped shorts.

JM: What Jerry has done to the basic hoodie is genius.

HK: Yes, yes I have the hoodies, the Full Zip hoodies.

JM: Who are some of your other favorite designers?

HK: I love AG jeans, Citizens; I have to find what fits. I can’t wear to many skinny jeans (laughing)

JM: I know baseball players have to wear suits when you travel on the road, who are some of your favorite designers for suits.

HK: I like Hugo Boss, they make some really nice suits and they fit really well so I kind if stick with what fits. Ted Baker recently did some custom suits for me as well.

JM: I love that you threw “custom” out there; I believe custom is the way to go and represents a certain status.

HK: I agree.

JM: Is there a certain shoe designer dominating your shoe closet?

HK: I like Buscemi, I have quite a few pairs, I been wearing them since they first came out. I brought one of the first pairs, but I’m also a big Jordan person too, I love the ones [Retro Air Jordan 1] that’s probably my favorite Jordans.

JM: You always have the flyest backpacks.

HK: Yeah I’m a big backpack guy, it’s the easiest way for me to keep up with and travel with my things

JM: Who designs your favorite backpack?

HK: I have a Louis Vuitton backpack that I carry all the time; I’m big on camouflage so I have a Saint Laurent camo one as well, actually Buscemi just came out with one too.

JM: Yes, It sold out in the first week!

HK: Yeah it came out in four colorways and looks just like the shoes with the lock on the back.
JM: Do you have a stylist?

HK: No I actually do it myself; I know what I like so I stick with what I like.

JM: That’s really impressive as you seem very knowledgeable on not only the classic brands, but also the new cutting edge brands!

HK: I’m a student of the game; I’m also out there seeing what’s new and looking at different websites, etc.
