Meet Tavon: "You should want to distinguish yourself from your competition."


Meet Tavon Wilson, a sharply dressed 9tailors client whose fresh take on style always keeps us guessing. While keeping a close eye on the trends but ultimately feeding his appetite for standing out in a crowd, this defensive safety will always try newfangled ideas. Seen above in a 9tailors velvet blazer, silver vest, and piqued black pants with just the right amount of sheen, Tavon tackles geek chic as effortlessly as he tackles for the New England Patriots.

How long have you been a 9tailors client?
One year

Why choose custom?
As an athlete, you want your clothes to fit just right. Since we are normally bigger than the average person, sometimes it is hard to find the best fit for dress clothes, business casual clothes, and suits. That’s why I get most of my clothes custom tailored.   

What inspires your style? Why?
I try to stay up on the latest trends featured in popular fashion magazines and websites, but I like to put my own personality into the wardrobe and designs.


What is your favorite piece from 9tailors?
My favorite 9tailors piece has to be my gray suit with lavender shirt and tie. It really stands out in the locker room and is different from all my teammates’ styles. 


What would be your style advice to other men in your professional field?
My style advice? Be yourself and do not be afraid to go away from the norm.  You should want to distinguish yourself from your competition in the workplace, as well as in your fashion game.  

Ya heard? Straying from the norm is excellent style advice, Tavon! Listen up, fellas.
