Portland Trail Blazer Zach Collins has a new identity: fashion plate. Christina Bolling of the Charlotte Observer explains how Collins uses a service called AZSN Studio, operated by Adri Zgirdea and Suzy Niemann, to figure out what to wear. The pair operate what is essentially Stitch Fix for athletes, since most of them are too big to simply buy clothing off the rack.
“It’s fun to just finally be able to have clothes that fit me — and to know people that make clothes that fit me,” Collins said. “It’s definitely fun to try new things and to kind of step out of my comfort zone a little bit ... It’s always fun to get up and get dressed for game day.”
It has paid off for Collins: he is prominently featured in pre-game “Game Day Getups” posted on Instagram and Twitter, wearing hand-delivered outfits curated by AZSN Studio. Read more about the sophomore’s style and the process it takes to accomplish it here.
