Joseph Abboud Enters Eighth Year As Official Wardrobe Supplier Of The NBCA

Men's Wearhouse signed a two year agreement with the NBCA to dress the coaches in Joseph Abboud Custom suits for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 seasons. "The NBCA is thrilled with the extension of our partnership with Joseph Abboud," said Michael Goldberg, Executive Director of the NBCA. "Our participating coaches appreciate the fine tailoring, the beautiful fabrics and the caring of this great company. Most of all, our coaches enjoy looking stylish on the court."

Measured at the NBA Coaches Summit in Chicago this past September, the coaches will receive their custom tailored suits prior to the start of the upcoming season. The suits were made in America at the company's factory in New Bedford, MA. 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.

"We started this partnership eight years ago and chose to work with Joseph Abboud because it's an American brand and we're an American sport," said Coach Rick Carlisle, Head Coach of the Dallas Mavericks and NBCA President. "We feel tremendous pride representing a great American brand like Joseph Abboud."

The NBA coaches participating in the program this year include:

Kenny Atkinson, Brooklyn Nets 

Brett Brown, Philadelphia 76ers

Scott Brooks, Washington Wizards

Mike Budenholzer, Atlanta Hawks

Rick Carlisle, Dallas Mavericks
