The PBA Draft marks a monumental moment for a handful of aspiring young basketball talent who hope to take skills to the highest level in the country.
It's also a chance for these youngsters to dress up and put on their 'Sunday-best' if you will, and leave an immediate impression with the teams and the fans.
Check out some of the PBA Draft's best-dressed!
Number 1 pick and San Miguel's new big man Christian Standhardinger kept it simple, going all-black-everything with a shirt and vest combo.
Probably the most creative getup of the night went to second-overall pick Kiefer Ravena, who donned a dark-blue suit...
...which was lined with his Ateneo Blue Eagles jersey. The multi-time UAAP champion and MVP takes his talents to NLEX.
Fourth-overall pick and UAAP champion Jason Perkins of DLSU went all-Filipino, as he rocked a traditional Barong Tagalog as he was chosen by Phoenix
San Miguel's second-round pick Louie Vigil of UST went with an unconventional choice, sporting a bowtie and suspenders combination.
But of course, you can never go wrong with a nicely-pressed suit, and that's what these new PBA rooks went with for Draft Day.
