I’m not one-dimensional, and neither should be my fashion. I wanted to partner with a retailer like Fortmens—one that would be able to provide me with the look and fit that I need for my life beyond football. - Jon Feliciano, Buffalo Bills Offensive Lineman

Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Jon Feliciano has been named Fortmens’ first U.S. influencer. The recently launched U.K.-based clothing retailer offers premium brands for men sizes 2XL to 8XL. Feliciano will feature fashions available on the Fortmens website on his social media platforms in the coming year.

“Our objective was to partner with an athlete who has an appreciation of big and tall premium brands and is also visible to a diverse cross-section of American consumers,” said Fortmens director Katie Perkin. “Jon’s fanbase spans both coasts and reaches communities large and small – for a growing fashion and lifestyle brand, and he’s an ideal representative.”

Currently, more than 70 percent of U.S. men would classify as ‘big and tall,’ but over the years, premium brands for men of this demographic have been slow to emerge. According to many sources, men will outpace women regarding luxury fashion apparel purchases over the next several years.

“I’m not one-dimensional, and neither should be my fashion. I wanted to partner with a retailer like Fortmens—one that would be able to provide me with the look and fit that I need for my life beyond football,” said Feliciano.
