Slowly but surely, NBA stars are cornering the menswear market.
The Heat big man, who recently signed a five-year, $118 million extension with Miami, this week debuted his new line of neckwear, appropriately called "Mr. Nice Tie." A collaboration with the Philadelphia-based tie maker Armstrong & Wilson, the line of five regular ties and five bowties will retail for $105 to $130.
“[M]en don’t have that many accessory options and I wanted something that was both cool and classic," Bosh told the New York Times.
Bosh told the Times that he's involved in all aspects of the ties, from the design to the inner fabric to the stitching.
Bosh was a part of perhaps the most fashionable locker room in the NBA during the "Big Three" era in Miami. And even with LeBron James departing, the spotlight remains in Miami as the Heat look to move on. Wade and Bosh will have a bevy of new teammates in 2014-2015, some of whom may be welcomed to South Florida with a sampling of new neckwear.
