The team has a dress code: suits for away games. Are you particular to any certain type of suiting?

Anything that’s not too loud and obnoxious. Classic black, brown, gray — pretty easy stuff.

What do you wear on the weekends?

Honestly, a lot of the things I wear are because I grew up as a punk, skateboard, snowboarding kid. I still buy Volcom jeans, and most of the casual pieces I wear are active brands.

Where do you buy most of your clothes?

I like going out with my wife because I’m not a huge shopper, but the one place that’s changed my mind is Alan Bilzerian.

You have two young daughters — are they into fashion?

The oldest one is pretty cool, she has a good eye for it. She’s walking into her second-grade classroom with scarves, and bracelets up her arms. And the little one is 3, so as long as she can have 15 layers on and one of them is a big tutu, she’s pretty pumped. We’re all colors of the rainbow when I’m walking down the street with them.
