CHICAGO (AP) -- NBA star Dwyane Wade is teaming with a Chicago-based men's neckwear company to design his own line of bow ties, neckties and pocket squares.
Crain's Chicago Business reports (http://bit.ly/1ax7rXs) the Miami Heat player is partnering with the Tie Bar.
Wade's personal designers and Tie Bar designers will collaborate on "The Gentleman by Dwyane Wade" collection. It will include about 30 bow ties, 15 neckties, 15 pocket square, tie bars and cufflinks.
Wade is a native of the Chicago suburb of Oak Lawn who's known for his fashion-forward style. He says he's currently designing his own shoes and socks and thought "how cool it would be to design my own ties."
Wade says he'll hang the ties in his Miami Heat teammates' lockers in hopes of spreading his style.
