Clarkson has been recognized for his style beyond the sports community. Garnering interest from the fashion community and mentions in major outlets such as Vogue, he has turned into something of a fashion icon. While he may rock Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent, he mixes it up with more everyday brands as an ode to his younger days when he couldn’t afford the major brands. “I feel like [my style] has always been the same,” he said. “Just having access to names now makes it a lot easier. Sometimes I didn’t like what I had to buy, but now I can actually get what I want. Growing up, I used to wear whatever. Everything Vans, just a bunch of stuff. I used to shop in H&M, Urban Outfitters. I still go to those shops, mix it all in. I feel like that’s how my style is different, you’ll see me wearing a little bit of everything.”
Today, the Sacramento Kings launched two limited edition hats designed by Kings Sophomore Willie Cauley-Stein. Through a collaboration with New Era, as well as the Kings Creative and Merchandise teams, Willie infused his personal style into two custom hats available online and at team stores. This release is his second fashion project with the team – following up on a series of custom watches from last season.

On Friday, For The Win spoke with three of the men who helped Sager look his sharpest. All of them focused on the same thing: How good of a person the Turner sideline reporter was and how he made each of them feel like a part of his family. “He always came in here with an amazing amount of energy,” said Pablo Zepeda, the purchasing manager at Miami’s Rex Fabrics, where many of Sager’s zany jacket patterns came from. “He always had a particular vision for what he wanted.”
Are you aware of your team’s record when you wear a tie this season? “I don’t know my record with the tie, but I know that’s being bantered about,” Stevens said. “I also know that, when you lose however many games good teams lose in this league — what is it, if you win 50, you lose 32 — like that’s 32 ways to screw up being superstitious. I’ve lost all my superstitions. If I had any coming in, they’re all gone.”
