Mr Wade's Recommendations

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND DISH

“One of my favourite restaurants at this time is Yardbird Southern Table & Bar on South Beach, Miami. They have so many great dishes with a twist, but some of my favourites include the fried chicken and waffles, as well as their meatloaf dish.”

VACATION CHOICE

“I’ve had the chance to vacation in some great places. Two of my favourite vacation spots are Hawaii and Los Cabos, Mexico.”

TOP CITY

“I’ve been blessed to experience and live in what I think are the two best cities in the world: Miami and Chicago. Miami is a great melting pot of people coming from all walks of life and you have the chance to experience various cultures. The beach and the weather are no-brainers! Chicago is home for me; it’s a city filled with great energy and a rich history, along with lots of great food and restaurants.”

FAVOURITE HOTEL

“I travel a lot and I also spend a lot of time in New York City. There are great hotels to choose from but I really enjoy staying at Trump Soho. It’s a great location and the service is what I love most.”

TYPE OF BAG

“For everyday practice I carry my leather Jordan backpack. When I am going to work, I carry either my Yves Saint Laurent Vavin duffle or my suede fringed Trussardi duffle.”

FAVOURED BRAND

“ Yves Saint Laurent is one of my favourite brands because I believe it embodies the right amount of classic with a modern edge. I love that I can rock their velvet dinner jacket with a pair of low patent leather shoes and still feel suave.”

ESSENTIAL WARDROBE ITEM

“A white Calvin Klein V-neck. It’s timeless, effortless and goes with everything. Plus, my arms look great in them.”

note

MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

“My mother, Jolinda Wade.”

STYLE ICON

“Tom Ford, because he takes something classic and pushes the envelope with exaggerated lapels, larger-than-life velvet bow ties, and cuffs a quarter of an inch bigger than the standard.”

note

STYLE TIP

“Wear what you want. You create your own rules.”

note

TAILOR

“I use a variety of tailors all around the US. I travel a lot and I need to make sure my fit is right all the time. I just had several Tom Ford suits made – because of their new cut, the Wetherby, which is geared more towards men with an athletic build with broader shoulders and a smaller waist. I utilise Beckenstein Fabrics in New York to source fabric and to create one-of-a-kind custom pieces.”

BEST SHIRT BRAND

“Dsquared2 makes the best shirts. They are always tapered and they make their sleeves long enough for a basketball player, with a 38-inch sleeve length.”

FAVOURITE SUIT

“Tom Ford.”

CUT OF TROUSERS

“My favourite style of trouser is a flat front, no belt loops, low-rise and with a small break, from Gucci . I have to show my Duchamp, Psycho Bunny, Happy Socks, Tom Ford, and Falke socks.”

JEANS BRAND

“My favourite jeans are the J Brand Denim Kane cut.”

UNDERWEAR CHOICE

Calvin Klein Underwear Pro Stretch Reflex Boxer Briefs.”

PREFERRED JACKET STYLE

“A structured, peak-lapel, single-breasted, tailored jacket, with side vents, from Tom Ford.”

SHOE MAKER

“For sneakers, my Fly Wades of course. For shoes, Del Toro wingtips with a contrast sole. They are comfortable and add the right amount of pop to any outfit.”

note

FAVOURITE GROOMING PRODUCT

“Aveda Men Pomade.”

DREAM CAR

“I was blessed to have been given the McLaren MP4-12C from luxury car dealers The Collection for my 30th birthday.”

WATCH BRAND

“My favourite brand is Hublot. I am fortunate to have a signature watch with them – the Dwyane Wade King Power watch.”

ESSENTIAL GADGET

“My BlackBerry and iPad.”

note

BEST BOOK

“My favourite book is my memoir, A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball, because it is about my children and my own childhood. It's available in September.”

FAVOURITE ALBUM

Watch the Throne with Jay-Z and Kanye West. It’s one of the most recent albums that’s out that I can listen to from beginning to end. Also, it features two of the greatest rappers alive, which makes it a classic.”
