We caught up with NFL Buffalo Bills player Jon Feliciano to talk style, shopping big and tall and life off the field.
Now in his sixth NFL season, Feliciano is a starting offensive lineman for the Buffalo Bills. In 2019, he started all 16 games for the Bills, helping the team achieve 425 total offensive yards and earned his first Pro Bowl ballot mention.
Jon recently sported some stand out items from our new Autumn/Winter collection when off to his away game over the weekend and described his biggest pain point when shopping for clothes in his size.
"Like a lot of men my size, my thighs are a huge pain point" said Jon. "They're thick and athletic, making most pants tight and uncomfortable in all the wrong places."

Jon wore Odessa Chinos in Navy from Redpoint; with a modern fit, breathable 98% Cotton and 2% Elastane for added stretch, these are ideal if, like Jon, you're on the lookout for the perfect chinos that won't sit uncomfortably tight but will stretch to fit your body. They're the go-to all-rounder trousers whether you're out for dinner, off to the office or simply on the hunt for smart-casual leisurewear.
"My style really varies... but comfort is the top priority."
Jon likes to shake up his style, describing how it "really varies". "Some days I'm Miami. Somedays I'm in dad mode. Some days I want to look professional. It really depends on what's going on - but comfort is the top priority."
Many of us switch up our style depending on what the priorities are that day. A well rounded wardrobe should always be made up of good quality jeans, cotton t-shirts, chinos, jackets, shirts and well crafted knits, to ensure no matter what you pick that day, you're always going to look your best.
Jon gets little time for rest but in his downtime he's got a variety of hobbies that I think we can all relate to:
"When I have downtime, I'm into gaming, cooking, music, reading and spending time with my family and friends." Said Jon.
But he doesn't stop there, this past offseason, Feliciano donated a total of $25,000 USD [approx. £19,000] to Meals on Wheels South Florida and Feeding South Florida to help those impacted by COVID-19. He's also an active supporter of causes facing the Latino community, donating more than $8,000 USD [approx. £6,000] to education-focused nonprofits like the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and Latinos in Action.
We're proud to have Jon as a Fortmens customer and can't wait to see him in action on the field this season.
