Austin Ekeler, Michael Davis 'In the Same League' With Giorgio Armani, Chargers LUX


Undrafted free agents with the Chargers in 2017, running back Austin Ekeler and cornerback Michael Davis have established themselves as high-end NFL starters.

Now the football has led to high-end fashion.

Last week, the organization announced Giorgio Armani as the official luxury style partner of Chargers LUX, the team's exclusive premium membership program. Ekeler and Davis are the faces of this new relationship that combines sports hospitality and style.

"For me, that was quite the experience," Davis told CBS Los Angeles. "That was my first time ever being in the Giorgio Armani store. I actually heard a lot about Giorgio Armani, but I always thought it was kind of out of my league. And I guess we're all in the same league now."

"Just seeing the variety and the quality of all the different outfits – the suits, the pants, the shoes, it's top to bottom," Ekeler added. "So, it's a full experience. And then the outfit that I was wearing – that we were both wearing in our photo shoot – we were feeling pretty good.

"It just gives you some type of stature feeling. I'm feeling like I'm cleaned up, I'm ready to go, I'm ready to go take care of business."

According to the release, Giorgio Armani and the Chargers will work together by "co-creating events, content, and programming addressed to Chargers LUX premium members and VIP clientele." The duo of Ekeler and Davis have already kicked things off ahead of the 2021 season.

"First off, Austin and Michael are two incredibly charismatic, stylish guys to begin with," said Vice President of Chargers LUX Kevin Gessay. "So, when you think about who they are already as athletes and as people, it makes complete sense for them to be involved in the program to showcase to our LUX members what it's going to be like to partner with such an iconic brand like Giorgio Armani."
