  • Villanova’s GQ Jay may tone down his suit game

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Long known for his double-breasted dark suits, Jay Wright may soon tone down his look.

    The man known as “GQ Jay” says his wife wants him to alter his famous suit game.

    “My wife [Patty] said, ‘You’re starting to look like the Connie Mack of college basketball,'” Wright joked Thursday on “Pardon the Interruption,” where Mike Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser referenced Jeff Borzello’s article about Wright possibly altering his look.

    “She’s like, ‘Too much, man. You’re getting older, tone it down,'” Wright added. “And I do get that. People talk so much about the clothes, I want them to talk about the players. My tailor does not like it. We’re in discussions right now.”

    Wright’s tailor is the Philadelphia-based Gabriele D’Annunzio, who was profiled in this 2016 Philly Inquirer story, which detailed that Wright has two closets at home, one strictly for suits and one for dress shirts, slack and shoes.

    Wright and his suits figure to be on the big stage in the coming weeks.

    The Wildcats have the inside track to win a fifth straight Big East regular season title and will attempt to win their third Big East Tournament title in five years beginning next month at Madison Square Garden.

    Villanova is also a projected No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and are many people’s favorite to cut down the nets in San Antonio.
