7 Style-Centric Questions For L.A. Clippers Sartorial Standout Blake Griffin

by MR Magazine Staff

Italian luxury menswear label Ermenegildo Zegna and Los Angeles Clippers player Blake Griffin hosted a made-to-measure suiting event earlier this month, with 15% of the evening’s proceeds being donated to Team Griffin, an Oklahoma-based AAU basketball squad that Griffin himself was part of in his youth and now sponsors. (Previously known as Athletes First, the team was renamed earlier this year.) Although Zegna doesn’t disclose specific sales figures, a brand rep described the sum raised for Team Griffin as “in the five-digits.” The event, held at the brand’s three-story Rodeo Drive boutique on June 8, attracted a range of Zegna-clad notables including L.A. Galaxy soccer player Robbie Rogers and actors Julian Morris (“Hand of God”), Justice Smith (“Paper Towns”), Mo McRae (“Empire”) and Terrence “J’’ Jenkins (“Coupled”). Nattily dressed as they were, though, none cut as dashing a figure as the man of the hour, who wore a slim-fitting bright (maybe even cobalt) blue Ermenegildo Zegna made-to-measure two-button, notch-lapel, double-vent suit paired with a buttoned-all-the-way-to-the-top-button white dress shirt (also Zegna) sans necktie. The outfit was finished off with a brown belt and brown shoes. Read more at Los Angeles Times.
