MALCOLM JENKINS LAUNCHES ROCK AVENUE BOW TIES SPRING LINE AT MIZZEN+MAIN
NFL safety, Malcolm Jenkins, launched a line of bow ties and pocket squares while playing for the New Orleans Saints. In doing so, he joined a long list of professional sports stars who have entered the world of fashion design. Outside the game, the flashy adornments had become a wardrobe staple for Jenkins, and he sought to develop his own high-quality, unique styles. Now with the Philadelphia Eagles, he continues to expand his Rock Avenue Bow Ties collection.
Jenkins held a Spring line release party at the Mizzen + Main flagship store in Columbus. Mizzen + Main, known for its moisture wicking, wrinkle-free men’s dress shirts, previously partnered with Rock Avenue Bow Ties to offer the designs. The event showcased the latest neckwear styles and had Jenkins giving lessons to guests on how to tie a bow tie, a task that is part of the company’s mission.
It is our mission at Rock Avenue to educate the masses about the art of tying a bow tie. Most people who don’t wear bow ties aren’t deterred by the style or look of the bow tie, but simply by their inability to tie one.
