Jimmy Butler becomes brand ambassador for Bonobos

Men’s apparel company Bonobos is set to debut a TV ad campaign on September 12 and will showcase their new brand ambassador.

Chicago Bulls guard/forward Jimmy Butler will headline the 9-year-old retailer’s first commercials set to be launched with the tagline “Wear No Doubts.”

The endorsement deal only goes to show how much the Marquette product’s stock has risen the past few years. Last season he appeared in his first All-Star Game and just this summer, participated in the 2016 Rio Olympics and helped Team USA earn another gold medal in Men’s Basketball

Bonobos’ CEO Andy Dunn had this to say about Butler in a statement:

“Jimmy exhibits what it means to wear ‘no doubts’ both on and off the court. We are honored to welcome him into the Bonobos family”

The 26-year-old Olympian also shared his excitement for his newly inked partnership with the apparel company and also showed his quirky side:

“I walk the walk of a man who isn’t afraid to wear floral, I’m comfortable in my own skin, but a man can’t walk in public in his skin alone,”

Butler previously appeared in another commercial with Russell Westbrook and Julius Randle earlier this year for Mountain Dew, but this will be his first solo gig as an endorser.

The 6’7″ shooting guard is already one of the highest-paid Chicago athletes and was ranked fourth on Crain’s list last year with an estimated $20 million in salary and marketing deals. With his new deal with Bonobos, he’ll surely climb the rankings for this year even more.
