Just because LeBron James decamped back to Cleveland, it doesn't mean that the Miami Heat's fashion credentials are going anywhere. In fact, it's the only professional sports team we can think of where not one but two players have their own designer necktie lines.
Following Dwyane Wade's collaboration with The Tie Bar, Chris Bosh is getting into the businessman's noose game with his own line, Mr. Nice Tie.
Produced in collaboration with Armstrong & Wilson, Bosh says he aimed for a simple, classic aesthetic.
"I don't take too many risks," Bosh says in an interview with The Daily Beast. "I always love dressing up in a suit, but I think simplicity is always the best-looking thing. I don't go too crazy with the colors and the style. I just like to wear something nice, neat, and fitted."
No word on how the ties will be priced, but Armstrong & Wilson's other offerings range from about $66 to $115 per tie. Dwyane Wade's own tie line only sells for $25 per pop, so apparently Bosh is going for a more high-end effort.
