New York, NY (CNS) – We’re used to seeing him in Speedos, but now the Olympic season is over, Michael Phelps will be donning his other uniform – jeans and T-shirts.
The 23-year-old swimmer, who has just recently received his $1 million bonus from Speedo for winning 8 gold medals, reveals that when he’s out of water, he is fond of wearing jeans.
He tells WWD when he was asked what he likes to wear, “Jeans, polos, button-downs, nothing too fancy.”
Joe Gromak, CEO of the Warnaco Group Inc. (owner of Speedo), adds, “He likes Calvin Klein Jeans and Underwear, I hear [which Warnaco makes].
Phelps continues, “Yeah, I wear Diesel, Seven, D&G, Lacoste – that’s pretty much it.”
Since it can’t be helped that as a swimmer he’s is often dipped into chlorine-filled pools, Phelps uses Kiehl’s lotion to prevent his skin from drying.
As for his hair, Phelps says, “I don’t have much hair to wash, so I’m not picky about shampoo.
The Olympian has recently revealed that he is using the $1 million bonus he got from Speedo to create the Michael Phelps Foundation “dedicated to growing the sport of swimming globally and encouraging active lifestyles.”
