If you are a bit into fashion you probably have seen Conor McGregor’s suit. Getting in the opponent’s head is a huge part of Conor McGregor’s boxing and MMA career. Do it successfully and you’ll throw him off his game, leaving you with the advantage. Which is probably why he decided to get a jumpstart on wriggling his way under Floyd Mayweather’s skin this week at the press conference for their upcoming fight. The peculiar thing here is, Conor McGregor’s suit was used to do it.
“I wanted to do something irreverent that brought out the ‘notorious’ in Conor,” says David Heil, CEO of David August, the brand that made the suit for the 155 pound champion of the UFC. “Conor is a fan of our pinstripe and plaid suits, so I felt weaving this specific phrase into the cloth was the perfect way to bring together the bespoke details of a custom suit and Conor’s personality.”
If you missed out on any fashion related stuff this week, the pictured show you the ‘pinstripe’ on Conor McGregor’s suit.
The fabric is a custom, in-house product made of super 130s navy wool for the label, which has been dressing McGregor for the entirety of his career. According to David Heil, if you were hoping to get a similar message across to someone in your life (like maybe your boss), you could get a similar suit through the company’s bespoke business.
To pair with the suit, the mixed martial artist went for a lapel flower, hot pink tie, and a patterned pocket square. I’ve got to admit that the look was pretty spot-on—and we respect the Irishman all the more for taking a little creative license with the stripes.
