Playing hockey like Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban is nearly impossible. Dressing like him just became a lot easier.
Subban, known for his excellence on the ice and flashy threads off it, released his line of suits and shirts, the P.K. Subban Suiting Collection, on Monday.
The line, released to the public for purchase from Canadian clothier RW & Co., debuted at a fashion show in Montreal on Aug. 16. It took six months to complete; Subban meticulously sorted through fabrics, finishings and other details.
Subban included his brothers Malcolm, a goalie prospect for the Boston Bruins, and Jordan, a defenseman playing in the Vancouver Canucks organization, wearing various styles for promotional photos.
"It's something I am very passionate about, designing clothes and being creative and fashion-forward," Subban said in a press release. "I love to leave my house looking a certain way and to be able to create something that is going to empower young men across [Canada]."
Subban's collection consists of six suits, which range from $398 to $517 Canadian, and eight shirts of varying sizes and cuts. The full "P.K.-approved" look, which includes belts, ties, pocket squares and hats, are available at RW & Co. stores in Canada and on its website.
"This line is something I would wear, and whoever wears one of the six suits will feel comfortable and look good," Subban said. "They will like the style, colors, fabrics and details, plus they are all affordable."
Teaming up with Subban was a natural fit for RW & Co., a division of the Montreal-based women's clothier Reitmans.
"P.K. Subban is exemplary for being strong, ambitious and confident," said Kathy Tsolakos, the company's vice president of marketing and visual presentation. "By showcasing his new designer label, we hope to show all our customers that they too can be at the top of their style game, like him."
Subban was traded by the Montreal Canadiens to the Predators for defenseman Shea Weber on June 29, but he already has shown his sense of style in Nashville during the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game there in January.
The 27-year-old, who won the 2013 Norris Trophy as the League's top defenseman, has 63 goals and 278 points in 434 NHL games.
