Men’s Wearhouse and WHP Global have announced their collaboration with H2H, an organization which represents the only men in the history of college and pro football to win a Heisman Trophy— and to have been enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Tailored Brands created one-of-a-kind custom Joseph Abboud (who is owned by WHP Global) blazers exclusively for these athletes to wear during events leading up to Super Bowl LVII, taking place on Sunday, Feb. 12, in Phoenix, Ariz.
“It was an honor to work alongside H2H to create bespoke Joseph Abboud blazers and acknowledge the extraordinary athletic achievements of these football legends,” says John Tighe, president, Tailored Brands. “The blazers we produced in our New Bedford, Mass., factory are customized with each player’s name and feature an H2H logo lining. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to help these men look and feel their best during Super Bowl weekend and beyond.”
The H2H Legends, and the newly created H2H Foundation, seek to create a legacy off the field equal to or greater than their on-field accomplishments. The H2H members include Marcus Allen, Tim Brown, Earl Campbell, Tony Dorsett, Paul Hornung, Barry Sanders, Roger Staubach, Doak Walker and Charles Woodson.
“The H2H Legends community is appreciative and excited to wear the custom Joseph Abboud blazers created for our group by the team at Men’s Wearhouse,” says Tim Brown, chief executive officer, H2H, and 1987 Heisman Trophy Winner and 2015 Professional Football Hall of Fame inductee. “It will give us a great look during H2H events throughout Super Bowl week and beyond.”
