The Bomb Life: The Plaxico Burress Sock Collection Launch
By Claire

Ball players are upping their fashion game, and some are translating their love of fine threads into their own stylish ventures. Such is the case for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress, who launched his luxury sock line this past Friday in NYC.
The Bomb Life- The Plaxico Burress Sock Collection Launch
We were on hand to get the scoop, and ask Plaxico about his sartorial penchants and the inspiration behind his line.
Why socks? He said, “It’s something I wanted to do. Something different. Something I’m very passionate about. My socks express my personality and how I’m feeling everyday. My socks, 99% of the time, have absolutely nothing to do with my outfit. They’re always colorful and mismatched, but I think that expresses how I feel for the day.”

He continued, “I got into the sock game [because I wore] my Paul Smith’s every day. I said to myself, I have four drawers of this man’s socks–why don’t I start my own? It started 2 and half years ago and here I am tonight.”
Does he consider himself a fashionisto? He said, “I’m really just getting into the fashion industry. I’m learning fast and I have a great team, a lot of people who are teaching me the ropes about fashion. I’m a stylish guy, I like to think, but as far as getting into the industry and owning your own company, and producing your own socks–this is something totally different. I’m looking to take it to the next level. It’s called a collection because it’s not just gonna be 5 or 6 pairs of socks. I’m already working on my Fall edition. I just hope to keep it going and going.”
What do you think, guys, will you be buying Plaxico’s socks?
Take a look at who came out to celebrate the launch:

  2. AzizMom says:

    Plaxico was giving us good shoe game too. All looked dazzling albeit the B- and C listers (no shade).

  3. Kahalia says:

    Jihan look so young, petite and sweet. Who would guess she can rack up a wicked body count with one FBD post of the worst weekend looks? LOL

  4. Did Plaxico not get the Rob Kardashian memo? If he’s going to do a sock line, he should know that it would be more fitting to wear a pant wear the socks could show without him holding up the pant leg. Ahem…moving on. Claire, those legs are the bee’s knees.

    wow….. socks
    anyway im getting life from claires muscular legs i dont like the outfit but your body is great

  11. Niya says:

    Claire flawless face and werking the legs but the ruffle skirt with the tied up shoes is doing a little too much I would have opted for a straight skirt or shoes without the ties, but nevertheless both pieces are cute just not together

  12. Ms Claire! you better work those legs!

  13. Marthe says:

    if my socks would express how I feel I would feel dark and dusty (i always wear black socks). It’s nice to see a man of color coming up like this but damn it’s funny to read someone talking so serious about socks… And damn FBD girls, you both look beautiful!! I’ll start to save my money to buy those sandals, those make me drool!
