I hope everyone enjoyed the 2013 NBA Draft last night, It wasn’t a superstar draft, but you still have a lot of strong talent coming into the NBA this season. If you know the NBA Draft well, you should know fashion is a big part of the night. These young stars made sure they dressed to impress for their big NBA moment. Lets take a look at some of the style from the evening. Whose look was your favorite
#1 overall pick Anthony Bennett kept the attire simple with a pale grey suit, coordinated with a checkered plaid necktie, and soft pink pocket square.
#2 pick Victor Oladipo made a fashion statement with his futuristic google glasses. Victor was dressed by ALBA Legacy (Custom Suiting), who let me know before the draft that there would be a lot of surprises. This was definitely one of them.
3rd pick Otto Porter Jr. kept the suiting basic with a neutral grey.
#6 Nerlens Noel (Traded to Philadelphia 76ers) looked spiffy in his 3 piece pattern suit (By ALBA Legacy) he spruced up with a gingham collar shirt, and solid necktie. As I reiterate, detail is key! Love the ribbon lapel pin on Nerlens suit.
#7 pick Ben Mclemore (Sacramento Kings) added flair to his suiting with a preppy stripe bowtie.
It looks like the trend for the evening was custom lining, as a few draftees(Nerlens Noel, Ben Mclemore, Steven Adams) got creative with the interior of their jackets
#9(Traded to Utah Jazz) Trey Burke added a splash of champagne to his blue threads.
#12 Steven Adams (OKC Thunder) experimented with patterns as he clothed in a stripe suit, paired with a gingham shirt and knit necktie.
#15 Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks) was all smiles in a sharp glen plaid suit. Giannis kept his tie and shirt subtle, which allowed the detail of his threads to flourish. This was my favorite suit jacket of the evening.
Center’s Alex Len(#5 pick Phenoix Suns), Lucas Nogueira (#16 pick Atlanta Hawks), and Cody Zeller (#4 pick Charlotte Bobcats) all elected for solid two-button suits.
