Michael Vick launches athletic clothing line
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
NEW YORK (AP) -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is launching a sports clothing line called V7 that will be sold exclusively at East Coast sporting goods shop Modell's.
The line is the latest image-restoration move for Vick, who spent 18 months in federal prison on dogfighting charges and was released in 2009. He has since been re-signed with Nike and married longtime fiancee Kijafa Frink earlier this summer.
The line includes technical athletic clothing such as T-shirts. Part of the proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia.
It was developed in a licensing partnership with celebrity clothing-line mogul Ruby Azrak and former ICM talent agent Brian Sher.
