The fans remember the highlights but the franchises remember the technology, data, and inventions that powered their season. Host Tyler Kern sits down with the innovators, leaders and founders that are taking sports into the future.

 

Adonis Jennings used to pound the gridiron in the XFL. Now the former football player is a clothier for Harper & Jones in Dallas. On this episode of Salary Capped, Host Tyler Kern talked with Adonis Jennings about the similarities between playing football and being a professional clothier.

Jennings noted the hard work that both football and high-end clothing require. Both also require the skill to develop relationships with co-workers and clients. Some fun is also thrown in the mix.

When the NFL Draft happens on April 29, players will be dressed up in the finest clothes. It is one of their biggest days, and one Jennings is familiar with, and some of his clients want to dress up in a suit and tie. Some want to wear a nice shirt. This year will be tricky with the pandemic, so some rookies will be attending, and some are staying at home, which will also affect how they dress.

Jennings worked with Kwity Paye from the University of Michigan and Caleb Farley from Virginia Tech. According to Adonis, both will be wearing interesting suits, though Farley will be doing so from home. Dressing a future professional footballer requires the knowledge of a former professional football player. With unique sizing, considerable time will be spent fitting clothes to these athletes.
