From Houston Chronicle:
Aside from basketball, Hakeem Olajuwon’s favorite passion is fashion, from designing his own suits to picking out the best fabrics for a custom creation.
So the former Houston Rockets star turned real-estate mogul has launched his own clothing line, DR34M, aptly named for his Rockets’ nickname, The Dream, and his team number.
Olajuwon, who lives in Jordan, was recently in Houston to meet with fans and show off pieces from his line.
DR34M currently includes men’s jerseys, polo shirts and jeans, and Olajuwon hopes to expand into women’s and children’s wear. The line is available at dr34m.com, with select pieces at houstonrockets shop.com. Jeans are $135; polos, $85; and T-shirts, $55.
“This isn’t new,” Olajuwon said, while showing a vibrant-colored vest and scarf he had created more than 15 years ago. “Even during my rookie year, I was going to fabric stores to pick out fabrics. They determine what I would want to make. I’ve always liked that creativity.”
