Everyone is buzzing about former Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and his $88 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars — but that’s not the only gig he landed this week. The Super Bowl MVP started the week with other major news.
“Anyone else feel the tension in the air or is that just me?” he tweeted on Monday. “This isn’t that news. But it’s big news,” he continued before announcing his new role as elite ambassador for Lululemon. “Like me, they’re all about community, mindfulness and #thesweatlife… Stay tuned for that other announcement.”
“Foles represents the type of athlete lululemon seeks to align with – a high performing athlete, family man, entrepreneur and yogi,” said the brand in a statement to Yahoo Lifestyle. Foles is the first-ever NFL player to ink a deal with Lululemon, but he’s been a longtime fan of the brand. In an Instagram Q&A session following the news, the Super Bowl MVP admits he still wears a Lululemon shirt he bought 10 years ago.
“My purple Metal Vent Tech long sleeve with neon stitch was my first ever lululemon purchase that I got in college back in 2009,” he wrote. “I love it and still wear it today. But ABC Pants are my every day favorite.” Lululemon joked on Instagram that, “he’ll have a whole lot more Metal Vent Techs coming his way.”
Wearing the same shirt for ten years might sound crazy to some, the Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Long Sleeve ($78) is one of the brand’s most popular men’s tops.
“I have several long sleeve Lululemon shirts; however, this is the best one ever made,” writes a fan of this Foles favorite. “It is warm when needs to be warm and cool when needs to be cool and the material is awesome. I highly recommend this shirt!”
Another reviewer notes its versatility and fit: “This is a great shirt for running errands, lounging, and for warmth at the beginning of yoga practice. I love the length, and the relaxed fit isn’t too snug.”
“Most comfortable shirt I’ve ever owned,” writes a happy customer. “I have had this shirt for three weeks now, and it is the most worn shirt I have. The anti-stink definitely works too because I haven’t washed it since buying it because I do not want to go a day without wearing it. Awesome shirt.”
Foles’ ‘every day favorite,’ the ABC Pants ($128) are a classic-fit pair of casual four-way stretch bottoms made with sweat-wicking fabric.
“I got my first pair and loved them so much I ordered a second pair a couple of hours later. Just as comfortable as sweats but they are dress pants!!!!,” writes a fan.
One happy customer notes, “They’re dressy enough for important business meetings but casual enough to wear to on weekends. Plus they’re machine washable!”
Another reviewer ditched jeans in favor of the Nick Foles-approved pants. “I barely ever wear jeans anymore. These pants are honestly the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. I now own 5 pairs and will continue to add to my collection.”
“I’m not sure I’ll travel in anything but ABC. These pants are life-changing, and I now need them in all colors,” says another.
