The New York Knicks are known for hosting a number of fashionable men, including JR Smith, Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. However Tyson Chandler is ready to put the world on notice that he too has a bit of GQ style in him as well. In GQ’s April issue, the NY Knick baller showcases his love for fashion, while dishing on his home life and how to make different textures looks good even on a seven foot frame. On why he focuses on the details of his look: “Even before I moved to N.Y.C., I realized that there are no off days. Especially in the camera-phone era. I started to look at fashion the same way I look at my games—there’s always going to be someone watching you for the first time.” On pairing sweatpants with blazers: “When I say sweatpants, I’m not talking about your typical lie-around-the-house sweatpants. I’m talking about that same soft fabric but in a structured, tailored cut. It sounds crazy, but trust me.” On farm-life and the importance of boots: “A lot of people don’t know, but I grew up on a farm. When I’m in a pair of boots, it reminds me of where I come from. I wore cowboy boots my first ten years of existence. I played soccer in them, cleaned the house in them, of course played basketball in them—always in the dirt. They were my go-to’s. Chelsea boots are like my worlds then and now coming together.” On how to wear “black”: “To me, if you’re going all black, the cut is everything. That’s what makes it sophisticated.” On proportions: “A lot of times, taller guys think their lapels need to be wide. Whether you’re seven foot or not, a slim lapel drives a suit.” I may not always agree with Chandler’s fashion choices, however confidence is the sexiest form of fashion. No matter how outlandish the outfit looks wear it with confidence. And that alone is why he scores a 10.
