Casual apparel brand Untuckit has announced that Drew Brees, the quarterback of New Orleans Saints, has joined the company as both brand ambassador and investor. The athlete already invests in a number of companies from different sectors, including sandwich franchise Jimmy John’s, and Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar.
“I’m so glad to be working with Untuckit. I’ve loved the shirt the moment I put it on, and after doing some research and seeing their incredible success, I knew this was a brand I wanted to be involved with”, said Brees in a statement.
