Queens College alumnus and comedian Jerry Seinfeld reps his former college in a new campaign for retail brand Kith.
Jerry Seinfeld is going from stand-up to streetwear in a new Kith campaign. On Tuesday (September 6), Kith founder Ronnie Feig unveiled that the 68-year-old comedian and actor would be the brand’s latest muse, donning apparel based on Queens College, which Seinfeld graduated from in 1976.
“There are a handful of people that I’ve dreamed of working with from a young age. On the very top of that list was Jerry. There are very few individuals that have had the kind of impact Jerry had on me,” Fieg wrote in an Instagram post. “Having candid conversations on set with one of my heroes made me realize how incredible work can be when you infuse your biggest inspirations in what you do.”
