THE DAPPER DEFENDER KAREEM JACKSON TALKS FAVORITE DESIGNERS, SHOE COLLECTIONS, AND A FUTURE IN FASHION Kareem Jackson wears a tailored purple Devon Scott suit, pinstriped shirt and grey tie as he poses in the VIP showroom of Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land. Flanked by well over one million dollars’ worth of super cars, the eighth-year Texan sits down with me to discuss his love of all things fashion. “It’s about how I’m feeling that day,” Kareem responds when asked what inspires his style choices. “There are some things I’ll stay away from, but I’ll wear pretty much anything... It really depends on how I feel once I try it on.” The Alabama defensive back turned NFL standout has long been known as one of the more dapper gentlemen in the Texans locker room. On Sundays during the season, Jackson arrives at the Texans’ facilities dressed to the nines in designer clothing. In the past, he’s been voted best dressed by his teammates, a title he has lived up to. He’s also been known to sport some impressive footwear throughout the week.
