For the eighth year in a row, designer Joseph Abboud will be outfitting 26 coaches within the National Basketball Coaches Association (NBCA) in custom suits for the 2016-2017 season, including Dwane Casey, Head Coach of the Toronto Raptors.

Measured at the NBA Coaches Summit in Chicago this past September, the coaches will receive their custom tailored suits prior to the upcoming season. The coaches personally styled each of their suits from hundreds of fabric swatches and a range of styles and silhouettes. In addition, each coach will receive 20 Joseph Abboud ties to pair with their custom suits.

“Joseph Abboud really represents style and class…everything you want to exude as far as representing your organization,” said Casey. “That’s why I’m so pleased that the NBCA is partnering with Abboud for the 8th year in a row.”

As part of Coach Casey’s commitment to the partnership, he will be supporting the annual Moores Canadian Suit Drive taking place annually in July. Moores Clothing for Men collects gently used men’s and women’s professional clothing items to help give a fresh start to millions of disadvantaged people facing unemployment.

Partnering with more than 60 recipient organizations across the country that provide job readiness programs, clothing received from the Suit Drive go towards helping deserving Canadians get back on their feet. Coach Casey will personally be donating clothing to a Moores location nearest him once the campaign launches next July. Last year, thanks to Casey’s support, Moores collected more than 77,000 clothing garments for those in need.
