10 Pieces From Kevin Love’s Banana Republic Collection That Don’t Require You To Be A Handsome Basketball Man To Pull Off

    The pro basketball player, mental health advocate, and overall very good-looking man debuted his signature clothing line today.

    Okay, so if you keep up with the sports, you already know who Kevin Love is — the five-time NBA All-star who’s played for the Cleveland Cavaliers since 2014.

    (You may have heard of one of his old work friends, LeBron James, once or twice.)

    Anyway, even if you don’t know who Kevin Love is, surely you can appreciate the objective fact that Kevin is not only a pro basketball player, but he is also a full-time handsome man who’s been Banana Republic’s “style ambassador” (model) since 2016.

    And as if it wasn’t hard enough to juggle bball, modeling, being a mental health advocate, guest-starring on The Suite Life On Deck, and otherwise maintaining the platonic ideal of white guy facial hair, Kev’s also been dipping his toes in the design world at the ‘nanner Republic.
