Michael Strahan, Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders, and Men’s Wearhouse have teamed up to produce custom suits for the Jackson State University football team.
When Coach Prime was exploring coaching opportunities, he gravitated towards a position at an HBCU to make a difference and help level the playing field in college athletics and the game of football. Since he landed the head coaching job at Jackson State University, he has been working tirelessly to equip students with resources for football and beyond. One prime example was providing suits to help the players look and feel their best. Coach Prime believes, “When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you play good.” That’s when he called Strahan, an HBCU alumni himself, who together with Men’s Wearhouse offered to provide custom Michael Strahan suits to the team.
Through Strahan’s partnership with Men’s Wearhouse, they were able to provide custom suits designed in collaboration with Coach Prime himself. In July, there was a pop-up fitting held on campus for the students and coaches and the team will debut their new custom Michael Strahan suits at the Orange Blossom Classic in September.
Production of the custom jackets was made possible as Tailored Brands, the parent company of Men’s Wearhouse, has its own factory in New Bedford, MA, here in the United States.
Strahan and Men’s Wearhouse have a strong and growing partnership that currently includes exclusive styles in tailored, denim, and athleisure apparel. The partnership will extend into the fall and winter with new clothing launches.
