The VIPP Report: Birdgang Brand Apparel announces former Cardinal and LA Ram Jamon Brown to their Louisville Legends Series

IMG_3491[32458]

(Louisville, KY) The University of Louisville Football Team started their season with a win against former UofL star Jeff Brohm’s scrappy Purdue Boilermaker team. Consequently, we are now just days away from the kick off of the National Football League (NFL) season as well!  This time of year, and the excitement behind both football seasons, make it the perfect time for Louisville-based Birdgang Brand Clothing, to add to its “Louisville Legends” Series. This specific line of clothing, which Birdgang introduced with Super Bowl 39 MVP Deion Branch as its initial athlete, was created out of respect and love for former UofL greats, their contribution to the University, as well as for the fans of these particular past players. Added to this very prestigious list, is Louisville’s “Home Grown” Jamon Brown!

Jamon starred at Louisville’s Fern Creek High School, The University of Louisville, and is now the starting right guard for the Los Angeles Rams, clearing the way on the line of scrimmage for 2015 NFL Rookie of the Year Todd Gurley. “SACRIFICE” is the exclusive design that Jamon and Birdgang Brand brainstormed about, the one word that embodies the life and career of an offensive lineman! Or? Maybe it embodies the life of an at home mom, or an awesome front line employee that gets little recognition? Or? Maybe it embodies the life of our military men and women, that give their lives freely on a daily basis! Or? Maybe our first responders to situations like Hurricane Harvey-the men and women that run into disastrous situations, while others look or run away. Or? Maybe it’s our at-risk youth, of which Jamon is very active through his JBrown Foundation, and teaching them that SACRIFICE breeds success. Whichever it is, this design fits the mold of anyone that has given their time and energy, seeking very little in return.

“The sacrifice shirt really speaks for itself,” says Jamon. “Being an offensive lineman, you’re constantly making sacrifices! You are consistently the least recognized but are a part of the bigger goal, and take on some of the biggest responsibilities, in the process of building success. This design takes you into the perspective of an offensive lineman, and others making sacrifices! For me, it’s just the selfless attitude that I have, and I think many lineman like myself have as well. So, the words and phrases of this shirt, puts you in the shoes of an individual that puts the TEAM, before themselves. The ultimate Sacrifice!”

The exclusive “Sacrifice” Design will go on sale this Friday for a limited time only and is in high demand, as a portion of the proceeds will benefit The JBrown Foundation. The Foundation has a focus on our “At Risk” Youth in Louisville and abroad, and helping them to realize their fullest potential, with an end-goal of influencing them, and others to be givers. The link below is equipped with the pricing details of the shirt. There’s also a direct path (toward the middle of the page once the link is opened), to the JBrown Foundation for those that want to donate directly, and stay abreast with the happenings of the Foundation.  If you would like to purchase the “Sacrifice” design we’ve provided the following link: https://birdgangpledge.ignitecx.com/sacrifice.

The VIPP Report: Birdgang Brand welcomes L.A. Ram & former U of L Cardinal Jamon Brown to the team

LARamJamonBrownandBirdgangTeam

(Louisville, KY) We are just hours away from the kickoff of the Louisville Cardinal football season and everyone is getting excited about the season and future that lies ahead for this ACC team. Birdgang Brand Clothing is happy to announce Jamon Brown as the newest partner of the elite brand of University of Louisville apparel and accessories.

With the ink now dry on the deal, Jamon officially becomes a partner in Birdgang, and also takes on the role of being the first professional athlete to be endorsed by the locally-owned clothing company, and certainly will not be the last.

Jamon is in his second year in the NFL and is the starting right guard for the Los Angeles Rams, where he regularly clears the line of scrimmage for 2015 Rookie of the Year, running back Todd Gurley.

Jamon was born and raised in Louisville, Ky. and is a client of Rich Sports Management, which worked with Birdgang Brand Clothing Partner and Chief Financial Officer, Danny Mosby to get the ground breaking deal done. He is also a Fern Creek High School and University of Louisville graduate.

Mosby credits the ability to get such an enormous deal done, to the overall humbleness that Jamon displays, as well as the strong image that he exudes in his daily life. “Jamon is an excellent young man, a hard worker, and one that we lost sleep over to secure this deal, because we couldn’t think of a better person of higher integrity that also matches the missions of our Brand. He was just the perfect fit.”

Jamon says “It’s a huge honor and opportunity to become a part of the Birdgang family! BIRDGANG has been a part of the first group of people to believe in me, and to have this opportunity means a lot! As we take the next step in our journey, I’m excited to build and grow together! #BirdgangFamily”

Birdgang will also look to create a specific division geared toward Jamon’s likeness, and will also aim to benefit the “Big and Tall” crowd, which unfortunately has frustrating challenges when it pertains to purchasing University of Louisville themed merchandise.

If you would like to setup an interview, (in-studio/phone) please contact VIPP Communications for availability.

The VIPP Report: Birdgang Brand Steps Up Their Game With A New Line Of Merchandise

IMG_0818

TO KEEP UP WITH HIGH DEMAND CARDINAL FANS LOOKING FOR MORE OPTIONS IN APPAREL

Immediate Release

October 29, 2014

2013, “The Year of the Cardinal” took the University of Louisville athletics to new heights. Fans witnessed a football team go 2-0 in bowl victories, a baseball team that advanced to the college World Series, a women’s basketball team reach the NCAA championship game, a men’s basketball team that won a NCAA Championship (2012-2013 season) and the emergence of a new clothing line that captured the swagger of a proud and enthusiastic fan base fittingly called “BIRDGANG”.

Birdgang Brand Clothing is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky and is a high fashion sports apparel company centered around the University of Louisville Athletics. Birdgang Brand Clothing is supported and approved by the University of Louisville, and is officially licensed by the Collegiate Licensing Company, (CLC).

The clothing line is founded by two members of the group Nappy Roots, Brian “Buffalo Stille” Scott and Ronald “Ron Clutch” Wilson. Stille is the founder and Wilson serves as the co-founder of the brand.

Consumers raved over the style and comfort of the university approved brand. Merchandise was flying off the shelves at retail outlets such as Hall of Fame Café, JD Becker, and Cardboard Heroes in Oxmoor and St. Matthews Malls respectively. From alumni to former players and students, to new found fans across the U.S. the demand for the Birdgang Brand Clothing was such that it caused the company to go back into production and design new merchandise for customers that have purchased every design available to them.

Fast forward one year later as BIRDGANG BRAND now announces the launch of its new website http://www.WeAreBirdgang.com and the addition of their “fly custom fitted caps and SnapBacks” as well as an all new “lady birds” category for the ladies. “We wanted to extend more options to our female Cards fans than just men’s/unisex tees,” says Stille. “In addition, we just got tired of seeing these cheap knockoffs of our trademark, a statewide and federal registered trademark.”

“Our new Fall/Winter line is a fresh new look, which is sleek and stylish plus versatile for U of L fans to show their school spirit even in their workplace.”

With these guys it’s all about the fans. “We do it for the people!” adds Wilson. Being avid U of L fans themselves and even one partner, Danny ‘Moe Money’ Mosby having started on the ’96 Cardinal football squad, the BIRDGANG BRAND team is focused on bringing urban fashion to the sports apparel arena. Stille adds, “We just wanna rep our team and stay fly in the process!”

Former Greater Louisville Inc., (GLI) Executive Director Tendai Charisika says “Birdgang Clothing is on the brink of something special”. Tendai has been instrumental in connecting Birdgang with Louisville’s most sought after venture capitalists. “Birdgang has been able to establish valuable licensing agreements and strategic partnerships with the University of Louisville that has positioned them for incredible future success. The market for urban apparel is growing and Birdgang is capturing this market with the highest quality material, which is what their brand stands for.”
