Update: We just received the following confirmation from Ermenegildo Zegna’s PR Team with the message of: “Peyton Manning will wear a Made to Measure look to “NFL Superbowl XLVIII” Sunday in New York, made exclusively for Superbowl 2014 by Ermenegildo Zegna.”
So it’s official!
Peyton Manning, the Bronco’s quarterback, says he will be wearing a Zegna suit on Super Bowl Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
As Manning is ready to play in his third Super Bowl, WWD asked him who’s his favorite designer? Expect Zegna to make an appearance at Super Bowl XLVIII.
“On Sunday, I will say all the players know that a lot of cameras will be filming them at the game so you’ll see them wearing their Sunday-best suits. I’ll have a good-looking Zegna suit on,” Manning stated.
An affinity for the Zegna brand runs in the Manning family. His brother Eli Manning was asked “does the entire family wears Zegna?”
Eli replied: “Peyton wears it. He is the one who got me connected and hooked up to it. We’ve been with Zegna for a long time.”
