The question of the day happens to have nothing to do with the sport of professional basketball.
What it does have a lot to do with is one of the best NBA ballplayers ever to lace up a pair ofChuck Taylors or to be politically correct with this posting, Air Jordan’s. Exactly where does Michael Jordan, one of sports best-dressed athletes get those incredibly astute suits?
Not only did Michael Jordan look great on the court but off the court as well. With many thanks to his tailor, Alfonso Burdi who told many reporters that Michael Jordan orders four to six suits a week from the Chicago tailor. One would think that with the salary Michael is making he would just order handmade, designer suits but that is not the case according to his tailor.
Alfonso Burdi said it all started when Michael Jordan asked the Chicago Bullstrainer where he got his clothes and the trainer said he would take Michael to the tailor shop that makes all his clothes.
Custom Made Suits
At first, Michael Jordan was hesitant about getting a custom-made suit at the family-owned tailor shop because he had a bad experience with a tailor in the past. However, when Alfonso, owner of the tailor shop said to MJ that he would make a custom-made tailor suit at no charge—Jordan thought he had nothing to lose.

When Michael Jordan tried on the suit, he loved it so much he ordered seventeen on the spot and has been placing orders every week since then. Alfonso said that Michael comes to the tailor shop with tons of great ideas for his new suits–some ideas from other designers and some of his own.
Alfonso said Michael is passionate about clothes and he thinks the love even rivals that for what MJ has for the game of basketball.
