In a move combining the worlds of high fashion and professional sports, iconic retailer Brooks Brothers has inked a deal with New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson to serve as an ambassador, according to WWD. The partnership will see Brunson donning Brooks Brothers’ signature tailored clothing at select NBA games and other events, showcasing the brand’s classic style on the league’s prominent fashion stage.

Ken Ohashi, CEO of Brooks Brothers, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, “Brooks Brothers has been dressing legends for over two centuries, and we are excited to welcome Jalen Brunson to the Brooks Brothers family. Jalen embodies the sportsmanship, dedication, and optimistic spirit that represents Brooks Brothers, and we are proud and incredibly happy to celebrate his talent.”

In 2022 he founded the Second Round Foundation in order to foster equity for young people through initiatives in education, sports, and community engagement.

Expressing his excitement about the fashion collaboration, Brunson shared, “I am thrilled to join the Brooks Brothers family. When I think of authentic American style, Brooks Brothers is at the top of the list. It is a brand I have long admired and have worn for some of the most personal milestones in my life.”

Brooks Brothers has enlisted ambassadors from various fields, including renowned musician Wynton Marsalis. Brunson’s signing marks the brand’s entry into the realm of professional basketball, adding a new dimension to its roster of high-profile partnerships.
