FASHION ASSIST: STEVE NASH DESIGNS NEW COLLECTION OF SUITS WITH INDOCHINO
With the lockout still in full effect, NBA players are finding ways to keep busy and for some, that has involved shifting focus to their style game. Amar’e Stoudemire released a women’s clothing range, John Wall recently unveiled his new Reebok apparel collection and several of the game’s biggest stars have been hitting red carpets and appearing on magazine covers to show off their sense of style. Phoenix Suns point guard, Steve Nash, is the latest fashion recruit. The NBA all-star has teamed up Vancouver-based men’s brand, Indochino. It’s a new kind of “assist” for Nash, who has co-collaborated with the company on a collection of apparel and accessories. In addition to his design role, Nash is also said to be an investor in the brand.
The Steve Nash Collection features a range of suits priced from $499 – $579 and ties, pocket squares and cufflinks ranging $39 – $49. Men don’t need a baller’s budget to afford the gear but they might need some of that NBA swagger to pull it off. Indochino is known for their customized apparel and Nash’s line includes six suit patterns that are made-to-measure for wearers. Pieces were designed with Steve’s busy schedule in mind. Details like polka-dot linings and a pop of color with the pop of a collar will take suits from a post-game presser to a night out celebrating a win. Limited edition pocket squares were also created to add an extra bit of flair to each ensemble.
“I have a huge passion for men’s apparel and brands that are innovative,” said Nash. “So, it is extremely exciting for me to be a part of a brand like Indochino and to have the opportunity to design my own signature collection with them.”
The line seems like a natural progression as Indochino has been a supporter of Nash and vice versa. Most recently, the company created a special “Showdown in China Suit,” for the Steve Nash Foundation’s Showdown in Chinatown.
