Craig Sager’s Pimp Suits Ready for ASW

by February 12, 2010

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.”
