Belk scores fashion touchdown with Cam Newton collection

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NFL quarterback Cam Newton's collection for Belk is now available in 133 Belk stores and on Belk.com. This exclusive collection, MADE Cam Newton, offers fashion-forward, versatile, professional and sportswear apparel options for men.

"From a very early age, my family instilled in me the value of personal appearance.  First impressions are a one-shot deal," says Newton.  "One of the key messages of this new collection with Belk is that the way one dresses really does matter." The design ethos of the MADE Cam Newton collection is accessibility and the ability to mix and match – finding one sharp blazer or an expertly tailored shirt that can be integrated into a man's existing closet, improving the overall quality of his wardrobe in a noticeable way.

"Professional athletes continue to be fashion icons and shape international trends, and Belk is excited to bring this fashion-forward collection to our customers," said Kathryn Bufano, president and merchandising officer for Belk. "Cam Newton is a modern, Southern man with a great sense of style. He is a perfect partner for Belk because he demonstrates strong integrity and a commitment to community."

Both men's sportswear and suiting are part of the collection. Complete suits are $500, while suit separates range from $80 to $240 and ties are $50. The sportswear collection will offer tees between $28 to $32, polos between $40 to $45, and long sleeve woven shirts between $60 to $65. Shorts begin at $50 and pants are $60. Jackets are also available for $120.

"MADE Cam Newton is a cornerstone of Belk's private brands strategy," said John Thomas, Belk executive vice president, private brands. "We are looking forward to its success and to continuing our relationship with one of sport's emerging style icons."
