NBA coaches extend apparel partnership with Joseph Abboud
Dec '13
Joseph Abboud will be adding a touch of style to the basketball court as the Head Coaches of the NBA wear his custom tailored clothing during the 2013-2014 season.  This is Joseph Abboud's fifth season as the official wardrobe supplier to the National Basketball Coaches Association.

The coaches were measured during the annual NBA Head Coaches meeting held in September, where they selected from hundreds of fabric swatches, and a range of styles and silhouettes, to create an exclusive, made-to-measure suit.  All Joseph Abboud suits are made in America at the company's factory, in New Bedford, MA.  The coaches received their custom garments prior to the start of the NBA season in October.

"Pat Riley first set the standard for court side style and the NBA coaches have stepped up their fashion game ever since, bringing their unique style to the game of basketball.  Speaking personally, not only as a designer but also as a huge NBA fan, I am thrilled and honored to wardrobe these talented coaches in our made in America, Joseph Abboud suits," said Joseph Abboud, Chief Creative Director at Men's Wearhouse.

"All of my fellow Head Coaches look forward to kicking off the season with a fresh new wardrobe," said Coach Rick Carlisle, Head Coach of the Dallas Mavericks. "As the Official Wardrobe Supplier to the National Basketball Coaches Association, Joseph Abboud will make sure that participating Coaches look their best on and off the court. 

“Working with a designer who focuses on the right style, fit and whose clothing is manufactured here in the USA, were all important factors in forging this relationship.  Coaches have worn Joseph Abboud clothing at one time or another during our careers and we know that with Joseph Abboud on our team we will look our best."

Joseph Abboud Custom Clothing is currently available at Men's Wearhouse stores in New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Hartford, Springfield, Providence, Monterey and Houston.  Men's Wearhouse will introduce the Joseph Abboud Custom Clothing line in several more markets in early 2014.
