AMIR KHAN SHOWS MR. PORTER HOW HE GETS DRESSED
Sportsmen are often tapped to front fashion campaigns and recognized for their style of dress. But we don’t typically associate boxers with their sartorial sense. Amir Khan is working to break that mold. The 25-year old British pro boxer is already an Olympic medalist and two-time world champion and in addition to those accomplishments, he has an impressive fashion game.
“Normally boxers don’t really get involved in fashion or anything like that, but I love my fashion, clothing and style,” he told MrPorter.com. “I want to look good when I go into a press conference. I want to look go when I go into a fight. My kit’s explosive, like my fighting style. When you dress well, you fight well.”
The champion boxer has become a fixture at London Fashion Week and he made GQ magazine’s 2012 list of “50 best-dressed men in Britain” with the help of his personal stylist, Andrew Davis. He also recently took part in the “Amir Khan Wears Burton” photoshoot at the Repton Boxing Club. Burton joined forces with Khan for its Spring/Summer campaign, where he showcased the brand’s Slim Fit Suits Collection.
In his latest fashion venture, Khan was filmed for “The Way I Dress” series on MrPorter.com, an online retail destination for men’s style. Khan discusses his boxing career and personal style as he dresses in designer duds including an Alexander McQueen jacket, Yves Saint Laurent shirt, Paul Smith tie, Bottega Veneta belt and Jimmy Choo shoes.
