At 6'8", Rudy Gay, the low-key Baltimore native who routinely rocks brands like Givenchy and En Noir and counts rapper Wale among his friends, learned the golden rule of suiting faster than most. “You need a tailor,” Gay says, adding that the gym crowd stands the most to gain from bespoke clothing. “Athletes work out a lot, and you want to be able to show that when you wear clothes. When you tailor something, the difference is like night and day. It makes you want to show off.” You don’t have to be connected like a celebrity athlete (or get paid like one) to look like a player, either—just find yourself a trusty tailor who fits your budget. “Obviously, there are situations, like on the red carpet, where I have a stylist,” Gay says. “But I don’t have my own personal tailor; I just have people I call to help me out.”
