After making a name for himself as a finalist on the first season of Donald Trump‘s reality series, The Apprentice, Kwame Jackson continued to make waves in the business world. The always stylish Harvard Business School graduate tapped into his entrepreneurial spirit with the launch of his executive neckwear line, Krimson by Kwame. Available online and at Macy’s, the brand has been a huge success and has expanded to now include bow ties.
BlackEnterprise.com’s resident menswear expert and Suit Your Life columnist Gardy V. Guerrier recently caught up with Jackson at Macy’s famed Herald Square location in New York City to discuss the evolution of Krimson by Kwame. As an added bonus, Jackson and Guerrier demonstrate how to properly tie a bow tie and make an impactful statement with your neckwear. —Anslem Samuel
