The Look: LeBron James' Professional Style

Get better at the sports you play and the life you lead at STACK. Improve your training, nutrition and lifestyle with daily

LBJ sports as much style off the court as he does on it. His classic look (below) is perfect for getting down to business and representing yourself in a professional manner—e.g., in an interview or a one-on-one meeting with a college coach.

Why it works: The letter sweater and dress shirt go well together, accented by the horizontal striped dark tie to create an overall impression that is  clean, cool and professional.

When imitating a pro's style, use the basics that make the outfit work, but add your own flavor. We put our own twist on LBJ's look by switching up the color palette:

Wear it now: Double-breasted ribbed cardigan, $88,; slim fit stretch-poplin yarn-dyed solid dress shirt, $59.50,; MaCartney-stripe tie, $50,

Where to rock it: Any kind of semi-formal occasion, such as an awards banquet or an at-home visit from a coach
