Describe your style: I think style is simply what you think you look good in. But if I had to put a label on it, I would say preppy street.
Go-to look: Collared shirt, jeans and a bow tie.
Biggest style splurge: The thing I spend the most money on is custom blazers.
Describe your style: Kind of sleek. My motto’s, “Look good, feel good, play good.” I want to dress the part, look professional.
Which teammate needs your advice? Ryan Murray. We were shopping in Washington, D.C. And this is not his fault—when you’re a young guy, a rookie, you save your money. (But) his shoes were scuffed up, and I was like, “Man, you can’t wear those.” So I spent $250 on a nice pair of black shoes and went to his door and was like, “Here man.” I love the kid.
Describe your style: I would say I like to be comfortable. Not a lot of colors—pretty minimalist. Except for the socks. I like to go crazy with the socks.
Fashion mantra: I like to get things that last—it’s a quality over quantity thing.
