I don’t know how to break this to you, but it seems like Dwyane Wade can’t stop designing menswear accessories. Yes, it’s serious. Because after first becoming a sock designer, now Wade is getting in to the tie game.


From a press release from The Tie Bar:


“The collection in which Wade collaborated with Calyann Barnett, Creative Director of Brand Wade, features 29 silk bow ties, 15 neckties and two dozen pocket squares, a selection of which will be released on November 20, 2013. The remainder is slated for release in early December, just in time for the holiday season.


“The range encompasses classic prints such as polka dot, modern geometric prints as well as saturated solids. Additionally, a limited assortment of seven tie bars and four cufflinks rounds out the offering and further establishes the collection as a destination for men’s accessories. Each item bears a label that reads ‘Dwyane Wade for The Tie Bar.’”


You see? He can’t stop. And he won’t stop. Can’t you see it’s he who designs those ties. Can’t you see it’s he who dresses guys.


But seriously, this is kind of crazy, right? How much time is Dwyane Wade spending designing accessories? Because it seems like two collections of accessories would take up a lot of time, even if all he’s really doing is picking colors and materials. Not that he’s Anna Wintour-ing things and spending hours and hours approving things, but still.


The good news is that between Dwyane Wade and Russell Westbrook, we’ll have NBA-designed underwear, socks, ties and pocket squares taken care of on the accessories front, so there can’t be too much more for anyone to design. I mean, yeah, a line of lensless glasses is basically a guarantee at this point, but after that it’s all undershirts, hats and frilly lace cravats. No one’s crazy enough to dip their designer toes in to those waters. Hopefully.

    A tutto ci¨° per¨° non ha corrisposto una reale efficacia pratica, come del resto fu gi¨¤ evidente quando era un semplice ministro degli Interni. Erede in questo della migliore tradizione repubblicana, Sarkozy ¨¨ un oratore dalla retorica seducente, ma, come si ¨¨ gi¨¤ visto in passato in terra di Francia, non sempre alla seduzione ha fatto seguito una soddisfacente copulazione…Un¡¯altra massima sarkozyana recita Non si pu¨° capire la gente se non hai i gusti della gente.

  4. Possibly challenging I had Several set of two gamma blue 11s (2x old classic limited, 1x taller together with 1x small), examples of these are my favorite.They’ve been really adoreable accompanied by a trousers in addition to a wonderful tunic on top of the application, without taking close to significantly lower calf ;) And now that element is to get specialer, they will even now retain your base like trend given that the other parts may.
