I hope everyone enjoyed the 2013 NBA Draft last night, It wasn’t a superstar draft, but you still have a lot of strong talent coming into the NBA this season. If you know the NBA Draft well, you should know fashion is a big part of the night. These young stars made sure they dressed to impress for their big NBA moment. Lets take a look at some of the style from the evening. Whose look was your favorite
#1 overall pick Anthony Bennett kept the attire simple with a pale grey suit, coordinated with a checkered plaid necktie, and soft pink pocket square.
#2 pick Victor Oladipo made a fashion statement with his futuristic google glasses. Victor was dressed by ALBA Legacy (Custom Suiting), who let me know before the draft that there would be a lot of surprises. This was definitely one of them.
3rd pick Otto Porter Jr. kept the suiting basic with a neutral grey.
#6 Nerlens Noel (Traded to Philadelphia 76ers) looked spiffy in his 3 piece pattern suit (By ALBA Legacy) he spruced up with a gingham collar shirt, and solid necktie. As I reiterate, detail is key! Love the ribbon lapel pin on Nerlens suit.
#7 pick Ben Mclemore (Sacramento Kings) added flair to his suiting with a preppy stripe bowtie.
It looks like the trend for the evening was custom lining, as a few draftees(Nerlens Noel, Ben Mclemore, Steven Adams) got creative with the interior of their jackets
#8 Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Detroit Pistons) elected for an unique chambray suit, completed with a gingham collar shirt, and black necktie.
#9(Traded to Utah Jazz) Trey Burke added a splash of champagne to his blue threads.
#12 Steven Adams (OKC Thunder) experimented with patterns as he clothed in a stripe suit, paired with a gingham shirt and knit necktie.
#15 Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks) was all smiles in a sharp glen plaid suit. Giannis kept his tie and shirt subtle, which allowed the detail of his threads to flourish. This was my favorite suit jacket of the evening.
#21 Gorgui Dieng (Timberwolves) looked sharp in his Joseph Abboud window pane suit. I feel a window pane suit complements the taller gentleman better. Not fair!

Center’s Alex Len(#5 pick Phenoix Suns), Lucas Nogueira (#16 pick Atlanta Hawks), and Cody Zeller (#4 pick Charlotte Bobcats) all elected for solid two-button suits.
