Former NFL player Shawne Merriman recently launched a clothing line to carry on his "Light's Out" nickname and legacy throughout the world.
D.C. was one stop on the football star's launching tour. Brentwood Downtown Locker Room (DTLR) of northeast D.C., hosted a meet and greet on May 19 for the new clothing designer. The line carries both men and women's apparel, from men's T-shirts to men and women's performance tops and pants.
"You know for me it's crazy because we've had a lot of success with the brand but I wanted most of the success to come from here, from P.G. County," he told the AFRO.
According to a press release, the clothing brand was established in 2002. He acquired the trademark for Lights Out in 2007. The line first appeared on the West Coast in 2015.
