Feeling the ‘Love’ for Banana Republic

FashionAlison Baitz, Gap Inc. bloggerComment

"Best dressed" is a hard-fought crown among style-savvy pro basketball players.

Cleveland Cavaliers center/forward Kevin Love, however, has moved up in the rankings with his latest off-the-court slam dunk: He's just been chosen as Banana Republic's newest style ambassador.

It's a match made in fashion heaven. Love is no style slouch — he counts classically well-dressed men like Paul Newman and members of the Rat Pack as his fashion influences, and he gravitates toward timeless pieces for even day-to-day dressing. Banana Republic's modern takes on classic pieces are just the thing for the budding style star.

GQ — the definitive record of men's style — is just as stoked about the pairing. Hop on over to GQ for the full story around the partnership.
