Conor McGregor is a rich man, not quite $4 billion rich, but rich nonetheless. Conor is also a guy who likes to look good and he’s spending a small fortune to do so.
According to TMZ, the UFC Featherweight champion has his own personal suit maker. No, not a machine, but an actual human who is there to just make Conor suits whenever he needs one. The man bestowed the honor is David Heil, CEO of David August Clothing and Conor’s stylist/custom suit maker. Heil says it takes 60 hours to make an outfit for McGregor, and each one cost anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000, an amount that could have paid quite a few of the fighters on his UFC 202 undercard.
“He likes to wear his suits high and tight and really tailored,” Heil said. “His size changes all the time depending on his fights. So we’re always measuring him to make sure it fits exactly how he wants it.”
Heil told TMZ Conor usually brings 8-10 suits on a typical UFC media tour, as well as a few extras “in case anything happens to the outfits he’s supposed to wear for an event.” All that is fine and dandy but TMZ forgot to ask the question that really matters: Are those expensive suits water-resistant? Because that Nate Diaz rubber match is coming, sooner or later, and he’ll need to be prepared for the next press conference.
