One of the NBA’s best-dressed stars, Dwyane Wade, is now sharing some of his favorite fashion picks with a curated sale for online shopping destination, Gilt MAN. The Miami Heat guard has been pushing boundaries and setting trends in the NBA’s fashion landscape and he’s a part of one of the most style-conscious teams in the league. These days the competition on the hardwood extends off-the-court for players, as they aim to showcase their sense of style and one-up each other with their clothing choices.

Wade is always a sartorial standout, with a wardrobe typically enhanced by colorful embellishments. His appreciation of bold accessories is evident in his Gilt MAN picks. As part of the curated sale, Wade’s personal selections include a black and white “Hemp Fedora” from Block Headwear, a blue “Lizard Belt” from Trafalgar, a “Key Pendant Necklace” from Mateo Bijoux and a green, patterned “No Evil Tie” from GANT by Michael Bastian, among others. Also included in the mix is his new book, A Father First, which chronicles the lessons Wade has learned as a single dad since he gained sole custody of his sons. Fans can check out Wade’s sale now, at Gilt.com.

The NBA champ also took part in an accompanying  ”Gilt MAN Q&A,” which you can read in full here. Below are a few highlights:

You’re definitely one of the best-dressed guys in the league. Who inspires your look? 
I work closely with my stylist [Calyann Barnett], who helps me with what’s in—and what’s out—as well as my own personal feeling and what looks good on me. I’m the kind of person who likes to look at how other people are dressed, and if I see something that they have, I’m not afraid to say “I’ll take this from that person and try to put my own style to it.”

And now the postgame press conference is like a fashion show. Are you guys trying to one-up each other out there? 
I think so. When guys see other guys doing something, it makes them step their game up. You know you’re going to be seen not only by basketball players, but worldwide. I think guys see something on another guy, they either try to get in with the trend or try to top it.

Do you and Lebron and Chris Bosh coordinate your looks out there?
No, never. We’re three guys who love to dress, and we love to see what each other wears from game to game, so we’re all surprised when the other walks in. Some days it’s weird, because we’re color coordinated, and you’re like, “why are we picking the same color right now?” and then some days you can see the different styles.
