Originally written April 08, 2013 on A Glam Slam:
John Wall covers the latest issue of Modern Luxury DC magazine, which highlights “Men of Style.” Seven local sports figures are featured in the publication as it notes that “even after the buzzer, they’re still playing to win—in fashion that is.” The athletes and sports personalities dressed up in a range of designer duds for the shoot, and each spoke about their individual style. Below are a few excerpts and for the full piece, read on here. John Wall, Washington Wizards: “I like to be different,” says the 22-year-old North Carolina native. “You don’t want to get the same suit as everybody.” (That preference is also driven by his size: At a lanky 6-foot-4, he has all his suits custom-made.)” (Clothes Call: Suit: Custom tailoring by Astor & Black Shirt: $85, at Hugh & Crye, Georgetown Tie: $79.50, at Brooks Brothers of Georgetown Pocket Square: $20, at Hugh & Crye, GeorgetownShoes: Wall’s own, by Louis Vuitton) Josh Morgan, Washington Redskins: “Morgan, who was the Redskins’ 2012 pick for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, looks at his style as “young and fresh,” but maybe his teammates put it better: “They say I remind them of Jay-Z. It’s not too much [flash], but you look good.” To that end, he favors custom suits by Élevée and Astor & Black, and he’s picked up pieces everywhere from L.A. to Atlanta to Paris. “You can make anything work, you just have to put it together.” (Clothes Call: Suit: Custom tailoring by Astor & Black Shirt: Morgan’s own, by Compliments Tie: Morgan’s own, by Bruno Piattelli Pocket Square : $35, at Sterling & Burke Ltd., Georgetown Watch: Price available upon request, by Breitling at Tiny Jewel Box Cuff Links: Price available upon request, by David Yurman at Tiny Jewel Box Shoes: Morgan’s own, by Louis Vuitton) Mike Green, Washington Capitals: “The Calgary native calls it “a little bit of rock ’n’ roll, with some vintage cowboy”—hence, you’ll often see him in denim shirts, peacoats and a preponderance of John Varvatos.” (Clothes Call: Suit: Custom Tailoring by Giovanni Shirt: $85, at Hugh & Crye, Georgetown Tie: $79.50, at Brooks Brothers of Georgetown Pocket Square: $35, at Sterling & Burke Ltd., Georgetown Watch: Price available upon request, by Breitling at Tiny Jewel Box Belt: Green’s own, by Austin Jeffers Shoes: Green’s own, by Sebago) Also included in the issue are Kyle Dixon, Annapolis Bayhawks lacrosse player, Toni Reali, ESPN host, and Dwyane DeRosario and Chris Pontius of D.C. United. Check out their fashion shots below and to check out the digital issue of the magazine, visit here.
