American-made menswear company Mizzen+Main has announced the addition of Thomas Morstead, punter for the New Orleans’ Saints, to its “Step Up Your Game” campaign, a series of video interviews with America’s favorite elite professional athletes. Morstead follows world-ranked tennis player John Isner and professional baseball player and Cy Young Award Winner Jake Arrieta in the series.
In the video, Morstead reflects on winning the Super Bowl during his rookie year, as well as Super Bowl XLIV and ‘going all in’ during the St. Patrick’s Day parade by wearing a kilt while marching. Morstead goes on to admit that Mizzen+Main is the only dress shirt brand he owns, and attributes his newfound taste in fashion to his wife Lauren.
