Legendary band ZZ Top put it best, “Every girl’s crazy about a sharp dressed man”.
And leading the uptick of sharp dressed men in sports is custom clothier ALBA Legacy, founded by Jhoanna Alba, who along with her team of 7 designers are transforming the way athletes dress one suit at a time.
ALBA, “A Light Beyond Appearance”, for over 20 years has understood that fashion is a way for their clients to express themselves away from the hardwood or gridiron. The ALBA team suits up NBA/NFL draftees to rising stars such as JJ Watts of the Houston Texans to legends such as Eddie George and Ervin “Magic” Johnson. It was Johnson, an NBA legend turned entrepreneur, who actually encouraged Jhoanna to start ALBA Legacy during the 90′s when she purchased ties for him.
Embracing the slogan, “The look of your legacy”, ALBA has been able to assist in defining the legacy of their clients from a visual stand point. Representing over 1500 athletes across all major sports which include; Russell Westbrook (remember his sleeveless suit at the VMA’s) to DeMarcus Ware of the Cowboys and Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings.
