Big men, have you ever wondered how superstars Victor Cruz and LeBron James stay so dapper and stylish off the field and court, despite their athletic physiques? Well, for starters, they both work with stylist Rachel Johnson when they need to swap out their jerseys for something a little more GQ. (Not that we don’t mind watching them run around in sweaty mesh and shoulder pads.)

This fashion slayer to the sports stars got her start as a stylist back in 2005, while working with NBA star Jalen Rose. Now Rachel’s all-star clients include Cruz, James, Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton, Amar’e Stoudemire, and more. And with the Super Bowl on Sunday, her focus is not so much on the game itself, but more on what her MVP clients will be wearing for the big events and viewing parties. Needless to say, when it comes to dressing big men, the task is simply a walk into the end zone for Rachel as she knows men’s fashion better than the rest.

We caught up with Rachel at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York where she broke down how to shop for the athletes in your life.
