“Fashion is very important to me and what you wear underneath is the foundation of your look,” said Wade. “Having comfortable and stylish underwear are wardrobe essentials. I’m excited to launch my collection with Naked and encourage men everywhere to give careful consideration and extra attention to what they wear underneath.”

“Dwyane has an impeccable sense of style and his authentic character and personal success story exemplify the core ideals of the Naked Brand,” added Carole Hochman, CEO of Naked. “Leading design direction, he created a collection of incredibly comfortable and elegant underwear with unique details.”

The Wade x Naked collection is now available at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue, Nordstrom.com and WearNaked.com.
