J.J. Watt best known as the Houston Texans defensive end and one of the most beloved players in the league is adding brand ambassador to menswear line Mizzen+Main to his impressive resume.

Founded in 2012, the Dallas-based menswear company introduced an innovative brand trademark of a moisture wicking, wrinkle-free men’s dress shirt as shared on its website. “It has become a style staple to many professional athletes who need that extra stretch to stay on the move. Since they require no ironing or dry cleaning, they’re perfect for traveling or just to and from the gym.”

“My personal style is really broken up into two categories, athletic and dressed up. That’s the beauty of what I have enjoyed with Mizzen+Main, is that those two things have come together,” shared J.J. on the Mizzen+Main website. All brand apparel is made right here in the United States.

If you’re looking to style your significant other, or yourself,  just like J.J., then look no further because Mizzen+Main signature apparel can be found in Dallas, Houston, Austin and at over 300 retail locations nationwide. You can also find chinos, henleys, polos, sweaters, tees, and hats to complete your collection.

With J.J. considered one of the players with the biggest heart its no surprise to see him support a company who donates a percentage of the profits to fund their “Shirt for a Start” program for veterans transitioning to the private sector or start-up culture as shared on their Facebook page.

“I don’t want to be remembered as just a football player. If I end my career and the only thing people remember me for is sacks and tackles then I didn’t do my job in using my platform in the best of my ability. I hope people remember me for some of the things I do off the field, and I hope that I can leave this game in a better place then when I came in and hopefully set an example for the next generation for them to use their platform as well,” shared J.J. on the Mizzen+Main website.

Watt also gives back to his community through the JJ Watt Foundation where he strives to give children the athletic opportunities he was blessed with regardless of income and to provide children the opportunity to expand their horizons and learn valuable life lessons that will serve them well beyond their years on the playing field as shared on his website.
