"The product is extremely soft and features a high-quality cotton stretch that is both supportive and breathable, allowing for constant comfort.”John Tighe, chief merchant, added: "Men have responded extremely well to the style and design of Michael Strahan’s brands, found only at J.C. Penney. He’s a valuable design partner and continues to give shoppers a reason to buy with us, which is why we decided to expand our partnership into briefs, boxers and undershirts. Our design and sourcing teams were able to incorporate premium, comfort-stretch fabrics, in manly colors, at an amazing value for a quality product that cannot be found anywhere else.”In 2015, Strahan, the former New York Giants defensive end and media personality, partnered with Penney's on a line of men’s tailored clothing and furnishings. The line has since been expanded into ath-leisure and shoes.
