Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson rocked a slick new checker suit at the Caps red carpet event on Saturday.
On Wednesday, he donned a similarly styled suit made by Canadian menswear company Indochino, who Wilson has partnered with to help open their 50th showroom in Georgetown.
“Playing in a league that requires athletes to wear suits on game days is a great tradition that gives you a chance to create a unique look each time you head to the rink,” Wilson said in a press release via PoPville. “I love the fact that I can turn to Indochino for a custom suit that fits me perfectly – I get to pick from an endless selection of fabrics, linings and details to add my personal style to each game day.”
According to PoPville, Wilson discovered the brand a couple of years ago while in Vancouver, Canada.
Indochino creates premium made-to-measure suits at ready-to-wear prices. With how difficult it can be for hockey players to find clothing to fit their, uh, measurements, the partnership feels like a match made in heaven for Wilson.
