After realizing my college basketball career wasn’t going to workout the way I expected (I wasn’t the next Steve Nash and Coach and I didn’t really see eye-to-eye), I eventually focused my athletic attention in the weight room. My junior year, as a 6’0 point guard, I was working out twice a day and challenging our power forwards and centers on the bench press.
But then there was Justin, 6’4″, 260 lbs pure muscle – far and away stronger than anybody else on the team.
Being a physical specimen is a great advantage on the court (as anybody who’s ever tried to guard Justin in the paint can admit), but it has it’s challenges off-the-court, especially when shopping for clothes. We get a lot of questions from athletes and ex-athletes regarding advice for finding clothes that fit properly on their muscular frames.
Justin has always had his own style, and over the years he’s learned a thing or two about finding the right fit. So we teamed up with the San Diego native to share a few tips on the topic.
A Difficult Fit
It took some convincing, but I figured we should start by showing why finding clothes that fit off-the-rack is a challenge for Justin.
