K. Love: On Menswear


Walking into an arena has really become our runway.

With great style comes great inspiration. We just had to know, how did pro basketball player Kevin Love develop his refined, easy style? Through his love of classic American films, that’s how. With icons like Humphrey Bogart, Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Stewart and Paul Newman, it’s easy to see how a professional athlete can feel as comfortable in a suit as in sweats.

One of Kevin’s Most Valuable Pieces, the Motion-Stretch Suit, actually partners the two. This seemingly classic suit is unstructured and crafted from an innovative lightweight knit with natural stretch to give it the ease, flex and comfort of his courtside gear. “This suit is so comfortable I could wear it to the airport, or on the team bus,” Kevin declared when trying it on for the first time. With his style icons at top of mind, it’s easy to channel the time when dressing up for a flight was de rigueur, and the Motion-Stretch Suit is definitely fit to fly in first-class style, without any restrictions.

Those are the type of guys that I look back and say, that was a hell of an era.

Eternally popular, even in Bogart’s time, linen has always had a reputation for being more laidback. “My favorite way to pull off a relaxed, dressed-up look is with a linen suit,” says Kevin. Linen’s breathability makes it perfect for warm weather, and, once wrinkled to perfection, it achieves a devil-may-care attitude that could rival any one of the silver-screen greats listed above.

Casablanca, Bogart, Bond. I mean, that’s what I love.

Timeless style, like that of Kevin and his idols, is always on point. Shop these and the rest of Kevin Love’s Most Valuable Pieces now and get a sneak peek of his new collection, BR/K.Love-18, dropping 9-18-18.
