Ian Mahinmi can't use a shopping cart to upgrade his wardrobe

Fashion is a passion for Pacers center Ian Mahinmi, but the big man can't just go anywhere to buy new clothes.

Ian Mahinmi has looked real good on the court for the Pacers this year, filling the void at center quite well while allowing the Pacers to mix and match spread and big lineups.

Of course, Mahinmi has always looked good off the court where he lets his flare for fashion shine through his own clothing line. A recent Q & A with Indianapolis Monthly magazine reveals, Mahinmi also likes to mix and match outfits off the court. Also, at 6'11 and 260 lbs., Mahinmi isn't able to shop off the rack around Indy.

Where do you shop in Indianapolis?

To be honest, I don't know where to go. I'm 6'11," 260 pounds. It's not easy to go to a store and get a cart. I do most of my shopping in Chicago and New York.

Fashion icon?

I like Kanye's sneakers. He was so ahead of the game with his line for Louis Vuitton. At the time, people wouldn't even think about going to a Louis store and buying a pair of sneakers.
