A team that slays together, stays together and such is the case for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ entrance into the playoffs last night. Heading into the third round against the Indiana Pacers, the Cavs turned up wearing matching suits, courtesy of the team’s forward, LeBron James.
As seen below the likes of Kevin Love, J. R. Smith, George Hill, Jordan Clarkson and Jose Calderon were snapped looking calm and collected with bespoke threads to match. Each player wore made-to-measure gray Super 120 twill suits, complete with an oxford shirt, tie, cashmere cardigan and boots or sneakers. LeBron James upped the ante by sporting a $41,000 alligator bag.
According to The New York Times, the unofficial team uniform reportedly stems from a collaboration between Browne and James. “These guys represent so much to so many people, especially young kids,” Thom Browne told the publication. “They look up to these guys to see what they can aspire to. And they represent working hard to be really good at what they do. That’s ultimately what everyone is going to see,” he added.
