N.B.A. Draftees Know How to Dress

1
An air of giddy anticipation hung over the arena as the first pick of the 2011 draft was announced. As expected, Kyrie Irving, a 19-year-old point guard from Duke with a choirboy smile, was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 8,400 spectators erupted into applause. Irving coolly exchanged hugs with family and walked onstage with the studied calm of the Oscar winner for Best Actor. He wore a sleek navy pinstripe suit with a lavender striped necktie — courtesy of Giorgio Armani, and fitted at the designer’s megastore on Fifth Avenue a few days before. .... Perhaps the most GQ-ready look was found on Tristan Thompson, the fourth player selected, also by the Cavaliers. The forward from the University of Texas wore a custom charcoal suit by Paper Brown Bag, a Harlem label, that called to mind a very fashionable Pee-wee Herman with tapered pants and a shrunken jacket. Thompson, 20, comes to the league with a taste for Ferragamo, YSL and Comme des Garçons. "I definitely like a European look, pride myself on the European style," he said. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/30/fashion/nba-draftees-know-how-to-dress.html
