i think yao ming has been pretty stylish lately...uno..i've seen him in like sean john velour suits wit customized air force 1s n stuff....pretty slick....much better than wen he just arrived in tha usa...wen i saw in like a gray sweater n sweatpants wit timbs on-i was like WUT??!? son??!?...n i also remember wen yao posed wit christina aguelara n shaq...he had on like dress pants wit a muticoloured nba leather jacket...yet juss looked so fobby...now i think yao ming is on his way to be as stylish as kobe bryant or steve francis....but i thnk he can still use a personal stylist tho... and a good tailor...cuz i ve rarely seen him in a good formal suit....

wut do u guys think of yao's personal style?i'd lov to hear ur opinion...

I like him just fine, he wont look good in those suits and stuff cause he is too damn tall and skinny. Well tall and skinny people never look good in anything, because they can never get a shoulder that is wide enough to make them look balanced.

But I guess there are enough fancy dressors on the team to teach Yao a few tricks

Yao has wide shoulders but his proportions make his shoulders look narrower than they really are. That's only because he is so tall.

Yao would look good in an Armani suit. I wonder how Shawn Bradley dresses.

Well, personally think Yao Ming is not an extravagant man that is obsessed with brand names. How often you see him dress formal in suit and ties ??? He normally goes around in his track suits, or ordinary shirts and trousers, or just with a jacket or overcoat.

Besides, you would require special tailor-made Amani, Hugo Boss, Ermenegildo Zegna, Duhill or you-name-it brand name designer suits for such a tall guy !!!!
:shock: :P 8) :D :roll: :lol: :wink: :oops:

I'm pretty sure Francis and Cat help him out. If I recall correctly, Francis had some clothes specially made for him by his clothing line.

That's correct. Francis always refer to Yao as his "dawg" or his "big man." In one interview, Francis mentioned briefly about providing clothes for Yao as a way to break him in -- to make him look more like an NBA superstar that he is.

Side note on their friendship: Francis once noted that come next season, he will attempt to help Yao become an MVP. Yao responded, "that's touching."

I don't know about you guy, but I think that little "that's touching" comment by Yao was probably a little sarcastic. I can imagine Yao thinking "yeah, right... I need your help? :roll: " :lol:
