When we see Conor McGregor winning or losing bouts, at least you'll remember his attire from the fight's press conferences and media events looking like he is gunning for a GQ shot and eventual cover soon.
After beating Nate Diaz at UFC 202 last Saturday night, you saw him come out of the fight with his typical custom suit. The 28-year-old UFC fighter looks to stay dapper for all his media events, and reportedly spends over $80,000 on custom-made suits—ordering between 8 to 10 suits—for his media tours. The suits range from $4000 to $10,000.
"We also have 2 or 3 extra outfits on hand in case anything happens to the outfits he’s supposed to wear for an event. Every outfit I make for him takes 60 hours. He likes to wear his suits high and tight and really tailored, and his size changes all the time depending on his fights. So we’re always measuring him to make sure it fits exactly how he wants it."
Heil added about Conor's approach to fashion:
"He’s such a style guy ... he’s always been that way since the day I met him. He takes everything and makes it his own. It takes a guy with the right mind to pull off these extreme looks, and he does."
This guy is spending way more than the average American salary on customized suits. It takes flash and money to live up to being "The Notorious."
