​The Clippers point guard knows subtlety is the best way to stand out

Chris Paul has been on our radar since he was named Rookie of the Year 2006 for both his finesse on the court and strong personal style.

When it comes to fashion, the Clippers’ point guard is a rock. Paul, who is the new face of fashion subscription service Five Four Club has mastered the balance between feeling good and looking sharp. He’s all about being comfortable—whether that’s in a tailored suit or a statement sweater.

Here’s what you can learn from his style.

Shop the Way That Works For You

“I hate physically shopping because I hate walking,” Paul said. “Online shopping all the way.”

He looks to sites like Mr. Porter for inspiration, and works closely with his stylist to curate his ideal wardrobe. It’s why he partnered with Five Four Club—the $60 monthly service sends you three pieces of clothing based on a personality survey you fill out.

“It keeps you from having to shop in person,” he said. “It’s brilliant.”

Find Small Ways to Stand Out

“At a black tie event, it’s easy to stand out with a red suit,” he said. But that’s too obvious. Finding a subtle way to be stylish is more difficult, but has a bigger impact. “I like to show my style with accessories, like a watch, necklace, or pocket square. I feel naked when i don't have a watch on.”

For watches, Paul likes Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Audemars Piguet. He doesn’t have a huge collection, just a few he knows and loves.

The accessories show he pays attention to detail, and he knows how to dress well—not loudly. Paul doesn’t have any tattoos; instead, he shows what matters to him through his accessories, namely his necklace that has his wife and kids’ zodiac signs.

Own Your Mistakes

Paul looks back on his oversized jeans and huge Louis Vuitton belt and cringes—of course. But it’s part of every guy’s style evolution.

“Those was the times, you know?” he said. “One thing about me: I’ve always worn what I like. I’m not going to wear stuff just because it’s trendy. I wear what I like and what makes me comfortable. I’m never looking for anyone else’s validation.”
