FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Men's Wearhouse enters its 9th year in partnership with the National Basketball Coaches Association (NBCA) as the Official Wardrobe Supplier to the NBCA. Joseph Abboud will be dressing 24 NBA head coaches in Joseph Abboud Custom suits for the 2017-2018 season.
Each of the head coaches were fitted at the NBA Coaches Summit in Chicago this past September and were able to select from a range of fabrics, silhouettes and styles to personally design their Custom suits. They will receive 10 suits and 20 ties this season.
Head coach of the Dallas Mavericks and President of the NBCA, Rick Carlisle, says, "With 82 games a season, it's important to look professional and have confidence on the court. We have incredible pride representing an American made brand like Joseph Abboud."
The NBA head coaches participating in the program include:
As part of their commitment to the partnership, the coaches will be giving back by participating in the annual Men's Wearhouse National Suit Drive in July. Men's Wearhouse collects gently used professional clothing for Americans transitioning back into the workforce. Men's Wearhouse partners with over 170 non-profit organizations across the country to help disadvantaged individuals regain employment through job readiness programs and workforce assistance. Each coach will donate a piece of professional clothing to a Men's Wearhouse store in July. "The National Suit Drive is a great cause that will help give confidence to those seeking employment and I'm proud to be supporting it," says Steve Kerr, head coach of the Golden State Warriors and winner of the 2017 NBA Finals.
