Eagles defensive stalwart Malcolm Jenkins is one of the most fly athletes in all of sports. Literally.
Jenkins earned the honor as a member of Sports Illustrated's Fashionable 50. Not only did Jenkins rank as one of professional sports' best-dressed individuals, but the New Jersey native also received the honor for "Best in Suits and Bow Ties." However, it's safe to say that his expertise in sporting neckwear is by no means a coincidence. In 2013, Jenkins launched his own company Rock Avenue Bow Ties, a fashionable tie line which specializes in designing neckwear and pocket squares for individuals seeking self-expression through fashion. Additionally, his wife, Morrisa, pioneered Meaux Moisture, a company that sells all natural body products, which Jenkins fully credits the appearance of his beard.
"I'm very observant," Jenkins told Sports Illustrated. "So when I see things that I like, I'll incorporate it into my own style. Everything that I do, whether it be Damari Savile (his new store) with the bespoke suits or Rock Avenue with the accessories, I only make what I actually want to wear. So that's kind of my inspiration."
Jenkins remains an attractive selection for the Eagles to keep on the field as well. The ninth-year vet now stands only one nab and score away from tying Eagles Hall of Fame cornerback Eric Allen for the most pick-sixes. His six career pick-sixes rank as the highest among current players in the NFL.
Surprisingly, Jenkins keeps it simple when it comes to his grandiose appearance. "I open up the fabric book and I'm like, what do I want in my closet? And I start there."
It should come as no shock that Jenkins will aim to be featured as the Eagles' anchor in the secondary as well as headline as the best-dressed Eagle come the regular season.
