Craig Sager’s Pimp Suits Ready for ASW

At least you’ve been warned ahead of time about Craig’s outfits leading up to the weekend’s festivities: “In his color-coordinated closet at home in Canton, Sager plots his outfits for the weekend in Dallas.  As of Wednesday, this was his All-Star lineup: Friday: A tie in T-Mobile magenta (T-Mobile sponsored Friday’s game) and a matching pocket square paired with a pink plaid suit with polka dot lining from Mr. Albert’s in Cleveland. The suit was so huge (58 long to his 44 long), they had enough material after sizing it to make a vest (which he won’t wear as it would cover up the T-Mobile tie). He planned to conclude the look with deep purple ostrich skin shoes bearing a seriously tapered toe. Saturday: Sager was considering a blue patterned linen blazer. The rest was undetermined. Sunday: For the big game, Sager is pulling out all the stops. In observance of Valentine’s Day his Italo Ferretti tie is covered in red and white crystals. The suit is black velvet by Giorgio Armani. The shirt, red silk by Armani and the shoes, black alligator (with eyes intact). The price tag for this getup? Somewhere north of $7,000. Sager is reluctant to divulge how much cash he spends each year on his wardrobe, but just this quick preview of his All-Star Weekend duds gives a good indication. So while Sager may not in fact be a pimp, he certainly knows how to roll like one.”

    Watching the dunk contest marathon on nba tv yesterday was hilarious because Sager’s clothes just got more and more ridiculous as the years went on.

    Sager’s really a “closet” posterboy for the non-hetero community. I mean, this is getting real wack.
    The question is: Does he really feel comfortable in those clothes? Or is he – like Lady Gaga – suffering for avant-garde fashion?

    -”The shirt, red silk by Armani and the shoes, black alligator (with eyes intact).”-
    There is a fine line between eccentricity & insanity. Craig Sager has crossed that line.

    i love how he’s so nonchalant with the outfits. Like when he’s asked about it he’s like, what, whats wrong? I’m sure he rents most of them though

    One time his outfit was so loud I considered watching the game on a black and white TV.

    Go ‘head, Craig. Keep reppin’ the weirdos. I’ll be watching.

  • JoeMaMa

    He’s the Tom Green of the TV personality world: doing crazy sh*t just to stay relevant. And a slow hand clap for his efforts.

  • Tommy Patron

    He wears what he likes.

  • LA Huey

    Well, he’d be irrelavant and out of a job if he wasn’t “that guy with the crazy suits”.

    Will see what KG has to say about this.

    I remember KG giving him crap last year about his suits. KG called sager over to the east bench during a time out so they could all make fun of him.

    All I have to say is that Craig must be confident to wear those suits in public.
