_B9A0013It’s hard to miss Pacers center Ian Mahinmi—and not just on the court. When the Frenchman isn’t wearing blue and gold, he shoots for sporty-smooth style elevated to a luxurious level and usually shows off his own clothing line, French Deal.

Is this piece from your label?

Yes. That’s velvet on the lapels, and there’s a silk lining. It’s very high-end.

Do you own every piece from the line?

Yes, of course. I have everything. And in different colors. I have stuff that never came out.

Like what?

I can’t say. I don’t want to give anyone else ideas.

Where do you shop in Indianapolis?

To be honest, I don’t know where to go. I’m 6’11,” 260 pounds. It’s not easy to go to a store and get a cart. I do most of my shopping in Chicago and New York.

Fashion icon?

I like Kanye’s sneakers. He was so ahead of the game with his line for Louis Vuitton. At the time, people wouldn’t even think about going to a Louis store and buying a pair of sneakers.

Dress up or keep it casual?

I like to dress up with a suit and play with pairing different jackets and bottoms.

Where do you stand on ugly Christmas sweaters?

My wife tries to buy me those Halloween and Christmas pajamas. I don’t wear them, but if you can have fun, I’m all for it. Clothes are all about attitude.
