San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
Cheap-Neckties.com, one of the most popular retailers of men’s ties and accessories on the Internet, today announced their annual best-dressed NBA player award for the 2012 NBA playoffs. Besides just naming a Top 5 list, the retailer highlights five NBA stars who are known for their penchant for fashion, all of whom are considered to be amongst the best-dressed athletes in the world.
“The NBA playoffs are extremely exciting; possibly what i look forward to the most in sports each year,” says Cheap-Neckties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “It should come as no surprise that some of the best-dressed athletes in the world play for the NBA. These guys are making more than enough money to shop for the best designer clothes on the market, and it’s apparent in the way they put themselves together when they’re not on the court. Whether they’re dressing in a casual or formal manner, there’s no getting around the fact that these guys know exactly what they’re doing.”
Each of the five pieces highlights a specific NBA playoff player that is considered to be among the best-dressed in the association, as well as two aspects of their style that makes them so well-dressed. In addition, each article features a section entitled “Takeaways for the Modern Man,” in reference to what today’s fashion forward man can learn from the way each NBA player dresses.
“Just because these guys are huge celebrities doesn’t mean they’re not still just regular people in plenty of ways,” says Pohl. “We wanted to make it clear to our audience that there are plenty of things for modern men to take away from how even the best-dressed NBA players put themselves together. While the pieces they tend to wear may be exceptionally expensive, there are still plenty of techniques that can be taken to heart by those who are on even the strictest of budgets. After all, money isn’t everything; it’s all about the approach one takes to style.”
Cheap-Neckties has a long history of publishing article series highlighting well-dressed athletes. In the past, the MLB, NFL and PGA have all had their time in the limelight, featuring both coaches and players.
“Athletes tend to be well-dressed for many reasons. First of all, they spend so much time in the public eye and are chased daily by paparazzi looking to get a scandalous shot. Second, they are generally well-paid, and spending a few thousand dollars a month of fashion is pocket change for the stars. Finally, clothing can be the perfect brand building tool for players when not on the court.” says Pohl. “We wanted to do everything possible to include the NBA in our run of article series, and feel as if this is a great addition to the collection of pieces hosted on our site.”
