Interview: Tailored Thursday x NFL

Hi readers x bloggers!
I am so excited to start interviewing stylish people again because I am able to showcase different styles, different cultures, different career paths, yet one common goal: to be stylish. Today in honor of “Thursday Night Football” I thought I’d bring back Tailored Thursday’s with Philadelphia Eagle, Malcolm Jenkins. I’ve done several interviews with Malcolm in the past but this time we get to know a few things you may have never guessed about him and who his "top best dressed" NFL players are! It’s 2015 and more and more athletes are trading the go to sweatpants for more of a tailored sleek look. Time to kick your feet up, grab your favorite drink, get ready to cheer for the Ravens or Steelers tonight, and read how Malcolm Jenkins dominates on and off the field! Enjoy.

CC: Hi Malcolm! It’s Football season again, how is everything going for you in Philadelphia? 
MJ: “We got off to a rough start this season. We've got a lot of new faces and we're trying to get this season back into the right direction. We feel pretty confident that we can still be a great team!”

CC: Football season is a time to showcase your fall style on & off the field. What is your go-to dress code / style for game days?
MJ: “I like to change it up! I like keeping people on their toes. One week I might be in a nice suit the next will be more streetwear. Simply put my dress code as....Just be fresh!”

CC: Top three “must have” items in your closet during the fall/winter season?
MJ: “As the weather changes you need a few things that will always pull your outfit together nicely.”
1. Nice pair of boots, Versatility is a must! They would be able to work with jeans or a suit.
2. A nice over coat. 
3. Sweaters! I like to wear them by themselves or layered so I always get a few that vary in thickness and fit.

CC: Top “must have” colognes?
MJ: “Colognes last a long time in my house so I've been sticking with Burberry Men or Gold by Jay-Z.”

CC: Where are your favorite places to shop this season?
MJ: “I do most of my shopping on Urban Outfitters but I love finding new small brands to support. I do a lot of Instagram Shopping.”

CC: Signature accessory? 
MJ: “Bow tie! Only from Rock Avenue! Wearerockavenue.com


CC: You know I have to ask: Top 3 NFL players that have great style?
1. Victor Cruz 
2. Odell Beckham Jr. 
3. Myself of course lol 

CC: What’s something most people don’t know about you? 
MJ: “I am a Doomsday Preppers and a huge Zombie Enthusiast.”

CC: Favorite place to eat in Philadelphia?
MJ: “Morimotos.” (http://www.morimotorestaurant.com)

CC: Lastly, The Prevailing Effect is someone who has prevailed and overcame many obstacles in life to get where they are today. Do you consider yourself a “Prevailing Effect”? What can the football fans expect from you this season? 

MJ: “Of course! I'm someone who's always faced doubt and criticism but one thing that no one can take from me is my drive and dogged approach to everything I do. So people can expect to see that when I play!”

I hope you all enjoy getting to know Malcolm a little more and more each time. This is the 4th interview with Malcolm and we all get a chance to watch his style evolve! To all my smaller brands via social media, this may be the time to showcase your brand to him!
