As one of the more fashionable stars in the NBA, it’s interesting that Amar’e Stoudemire doesn’t take his style too seriously. The New York Knicks player sat down with “Gilt Manual” to talk about his personal style, his exterior evolution and who’s style he admires.
Only weeks after marrying his long-time girlfriend, Alexis Welch in a red Lanvin suit, his perspective of fashion was quite interesting.
On how his style has evolved: “It’s more mature. When I started off as a teenager, I was wearing things that teenagers wear, and now that I’m 29, 30 years old I wear a different style now. The older I get, the more my style changes.”
On the most stylish man in the NBA: “I like the way Kobe Bryant dresses. It’s very contemporary, very easy. He’s not doing too much. It’s always good to see a little class with fashion.”
On the nest style advice he’s received: “Be yourself. Don’t try too hard. That’s advice to anyone who’s trying to become stylish. Don’t try too hard — it shows.”
