San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is front and center for a new style feature from Mr Porter’s The Journal.
Kaepernick links up with photographer Blair Getz Mezibov and Mr Porter style director Dan May for the outing. Getting into fall’s shearling trend, the athlete is pictured in a Tom Ford jacket as well as current sportswear from brands such as Levi’s Vintage Clothing and Lanvin.Biracial; black and white, Kaepernick talks about his personal style and how it means a lot to him,
“My racial heritage is something I want people to be well aware of. I do want to be a representative of the African community, and I want to hold myself and dress myself in a way that reflects that. I want black kids to see me and think: ‘OK, he’s carrying himself as a black man, and that’s how a black man should carry himself.’”
