Blair Underwood has his own line of men’s clothing, the “BU Collection,” sold exclusively at K&G Fashion Superstore. The brand specializes in suits that are unique and modern.
“I wanted this collection to be available to every man without a steep price barrier,” said Blair Underwood fashion icon and actor. “I felt K&G was a great partner to launch this line because of their ability to bring well-made designer clothing to the public at affordable prices. In a world that is obsessed with ‘the cult of celebrity,’ the BU Collection challenges you, not to aspire to anyone else’s greatness, but instead, strive to reveal and ignite the greatness within you. The BU Collection gives you the tools and the wherewithal to become the best you, the ultimate you…simply put, B.U.”
The brand sells 100% wool three-piece suits with complementary 100% cotton dress shirts and 100% silk ties. The items have personal touches such as Blair Underwood’s family crest inside the lapel. The color burgundy is used as the lining of the suits and for the stitching on the button holes. Burgundy represents Blair’s belief that “within all of us, our blood runs the same color. It is our humanity that makes us interconnected.”
The BU Collection expanded to add more product categories in February 2013. New additions included shoes, accessories, and casual clothing like polo shirts and sweater.
