The upcoming men’s clothing store, Damari Saville, founded by North Penn High School graduate Jay Amin and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins will offer not only impeccable designs, but the unique chance to be measured by the football star, writes Elizabeth Wellington for Philly.com.
Amin, who moved to Montgomery County with his parents when he was eight, made his first business investment in the Microtel Inn after serving in the army. However, he soon became interested in the world of men’s fashion through his friend, Aleks Musika, cofounder of the Musika Frere custom-suit line worn by stars such as Kevin Hart and Jay Z.
“I was able to learn from a lead fashion designer. I took it in all just by being there,” said Amin.
Jenkins’ ability to connect with athletes and fashion trendsetters like style blogger, Sabir Peele, is one of many reasons the 29-year-old is sure his young fashion business will take off.
“We aren’t following rules or trends,” said Jenkins “We are doing what we think looks good in a world where everybody is cookie-cutter.”
The 3,000-square-foot Damari Savile will have its grand opening at 709 Walnut Street in Philadelphia next month.
