What you can learn from NBA All-Star Weekend's most memorable looks.

Lesson 1: Fit is, er, king… As the royal Mr. James and his teammates Dwyane and Chris–especially Chris–demonstrate, the ultimate accessory for a brown, navy, or khaki suit is a skilled tailor. Custom-made George Esquivel shoes are nice, too.

Lesson 2: A nicely proportioned pinstripe blazer is a classic. And going emerald green gives the staple a fresh spin. (Side note: Just because you now live in Gotham does not mean you need to have a geeky alter-ego.)

Lesson 3: Mix (but don’t match) your patterns—an assortment of patten scales will give your look a sense of depth and keep you from looking like a picnic table.
