NEW YORK -- Stephon Marbury is helping his Knicks' teammates dress for success.

In an effort to comply with the NBA's new dress code, Marbury will outfit each in a Joseph Abboud custom-designed suit.

The Knicks point guard appeared in the Joseph Abboud Spring 2005 ad campaign. Players will be invited to make an appointment with the showroom to be personally fitted for a suit.

"We understand that some players may disagree with the new changes, however I think Joseph Abboud can help them look stylish, young and successful without wearing their father's suit," Marty Staff, president of JA Apparel, said Friday.

Boston Red Sox center fielder Johnny Damon is the newest addition to the Joseph Abboud roster.
