In those high-intensity moments before each fight, all eyes are on Bruce.

UFC legend. Fashion Icon. That's Bruce Buffer.
By embracing the custom process with King & Bay, Bruce's style has reached an even higher level of appeal. And everyone – the fans, the media and the fighters – has noticed.
I'm like a kid in candy store, man. I'm getting into my pyjamas when I put on a King & Bay suit, because I'm comfortable. I must say that out of everybody that I've shopped at, I've never had that with anybody. And so if you ask me where I'm going to shop, I'm going to say King & Bay, baby.
Bold & Sophisticated Style
From the exquisite tuxedos and formal suits of the past, to today’s custom designed and fitted raw silk jacquard smoking jackets, Bruce has gone from staying current in fashion to setting his own unique trends.
Part of the anticipation for many UFC enthusiasts is seeing what Bruce will wear for each fight.
As he's built his relationship with King & Bay over the past 5 years, Bruce has created a symphony of elevated formalwear to visually communicate to fans the importance of each fight.
