Jon Weeks is a Pro Bowl Snapper for the Houston Texans who co-designed the Houston Strong Shirt. In wake of an unimaginable devastation that Hurricane Harvey caused, Jon reached out to Athletes Brand looking to help his fellow Houstonians in as many ways as possible. 100% of the profits from this Houston Strong shirt co-designed by Jon Weeks went to the cities foundation founded by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner to help the people of Houston during and after their difficult time.
The design idea was spurred from the imagination of Jon Weeks before our talented artist put it into art. The inspiration of the art is quite simple... Houston Strong. A phrase that Jon of course did not come up with and takes no claim to, but has been used in the community to show the strength and determination of Houstonians to not give up. That's what it's about. Inspiring to not give up. The people of Houston are already rebuilding the city by hand while also extending a hand to one another every step of the way. That's why the design takes on a hand drawn look.
We aren't just a clothing brand and we don't sell charity shirts.
We take pride in being a luxury brand that the average athlete can afford, and money from every purchase just so happens to help a worthy cause. Our products are made from the fit, to the fabric and even the art specifically for the world class athlete that lives the world class lifestyle.
Athletes Brand shirts run a little longer than the average shirt to fit that more typical athlete body build and the fabric and cut was hand picked by hundreds of pro athletes as their fit and feel of choice before we settled on the shirts that we use. Athlete tailored and cut to the average athlete body build (slightly longer torso, light weight, fit shoulders and chest).
Men's and Youth are made of a high end, tri-blend fabric (50% Polyester, 25% Combed Cotton, 25% Rayon). Women's top is a luxury 50% Poly and 50% Rayon loose fit shirt.
