Plaxico Burress is an athlete who of course is surrounded by rich athletes on a daily basis. Athletes like fine threads, and most importantly, they enjoy fine, comfortable, top of the line socks.
The Steelers wide receiver recently launched his own fine line of luxury sock called the Plaxico Burress Collection.
Burress launched the collection, this week in New York City. Burress says he wants to design bow ties, cuff links and belts once the socks take off according to the New York Times.
To help promote the line, Burress has gotten the word out to the news media, and started a Twitter account, @PlaxicosSocks.
“I’ve been planning my sock line from behind the scenes for a couple of years; nobody even knew I was doing it,” said Burress, excited to talk about colorful socks instead of colorful former coaches. “So it’s a lot of hard work that got me to this point.”
“I’ve always considered myself a pretty stylish guy,” he said. “I may not have had the means to do so coming up. I had an eye for what looks good on me.”
