Kareem Jackson can now add "fashion designer" to his resume of tackles and interceptions.
A self-proclaimed 'fly guy,' Jackson is known for dressing to the nines when the Texans travel for away games. He's got a shoe collection Kanye West would envy and was voted best dressed on the team by his peers.
That's why when the Texans decided to add the clothing line "Player Inspired", which is designed by a current squad member, the fifth-year cornerback was the perfect candidate.
Texans CB Kareem Jackson premiered his clothing line at the launch of "Player Inspired: Kareem Jackson Fly Guy" at the Go Texan Store.
"I had a great opportunity to sit down this offseason and create some shirts and hats for the Texans store here in the stadium," Jackson said. "I definitely had a lot of fun with this, and I hope everyone enjoys it."
On Tuesday, Jackson's line "Kareem Jackson Fly Guy" was unveiled at the Go Texan Store in NRG Stadium. Jackson and his keen eye for style worked in collaboration with New Era and Majestic Threads to produce a collection of t-shirts and caps for both men and women.
"Anytime I'm putting something together, it'd definitely have to be something that I would wear," Jackson explained. "At the same time, I had to think about other people and the things they would like. Once you take that into consideration, you try to put something together that everybody will like."
Player Inspired: Kareem Jackson Fly Guy will be sold exclusively at the Go Texan Store. One shirt and hat will be released each month during the season.
So where does the aspiring fashion designer go from here?
"Back to practice tomorrow," Jackson laughed.
