Michael B. Jordan

Actor Michael B. Jordan has been selected as the first-ever global brand ambassador for Coach menswear collection.

The Black Panther star will also appear in advertisements for Coach footwear, accessories, and fragrance.

The first images from the spring 2019 line dropped on Wednesday, Jan. 2, with the main photo showing Michael sitting on a vintage car at a "faded carnival" while posing in leather trousers, a black leather jacket, and a Rivington Backpack In Signature Canvas -- all by Coach.

Another PR image shows the 31-year-old sporting a blue leather jacket with color coordinated trousers and boots, while a third photo depicts him leaning on a vehicle in a colorblock shearling jacket and loose-fit black trousers.

The items can be purchased online here.

"I'm proud to be the face of Coach men's," Jordan said in a statement. "I've been a fan of Coach for a long time and truly respect their inclusive and optimistic values."

The campaign also features the new season's hero bags, including the Signature Rivington Backpack, the Rivington Belt Bag, and the Metropolitan Carryall.

The campaign was shot by photographer Craig McDean, while Jane How styled him, according to WENN.com.

    cute bag and jacket....not really feeling the shoes....but ok.

  • Evillene

    "I've been a fan of Coach for a long time and truly respect their inclusive and optimistic values."

    Good for him. But Coach is a luxury brand and there is nothing "inclusive" about it. I hate that blacks focus on material consumption. Particularly with brands that didn't want any "urban" association for decades -- until realizing that we would spend our last penny and go into debt for a designer bag.

  • Yoni7

    BWAHAHAHAHAHHAA!

  • Tiff J

    Yeah, those sneakers are butt ugly.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    nice pieces.... congrats to him.
    (I've only ever purchase one coach item, and that was on deep discount at the outlet a couple of years ago. before that, i wouldn't even look at a coach bag because they had taken over the DMV... now we're overrun with mike cores, smh)

  • Bossy704

    Can we have another black man please? Where is Idris?

  • Nikki J
  • TriniHarlem

    I always wanted stock in this company and exactly what I brought myself. All about elevation this year. Bring on the new customers Michael ?

  • Yoni7

    I am a fan of Coach bags (NOT THE ONES WITH THE C's ALL OVER IT! ICK!). Haven't purchased one in years! I currently don't own any.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    no backwards hustlin' huh, Shug? LOL!

  • Sassie

    Nice looking ad but he's still funny looking and Coach is still the poor man's Louis Vuitton, LOL

  • Yoni7

    I am not a fan of MK either........but I did however, get these one pair of MK shoes. They are space age pimpin', if I do say so myself. LOL But you wouldn't know they were MK unless you asked. #notalabelinsight

  • Yoni7

    I'll take a classic bag over a trendy bag any day. LOL

  • Sassie

    Yeah, I was just about to stop liking Michael Kors cuz every chick in the hood got a bag, UNTIL I saw his new line of shoes and bookbags at Macy's...then I changed my mind. His line is FIRE...and it's not really that cheap, either....the bag I wanted was $368. I couldn't swing that at that particular moment in time. I'll go back later, LOL

  • TriniHarlem

    No ma'am ??

  • TriniHarlem

    Me too. Classic and until I get it like I'm in my own compound I don't see the need to go higher. And now that I have shares I will buy solely them.

  • Yoni7

    YAAASSSSS!!!!!

  • TriniHarlem

    See the seed you help planted since old blog Queen?!!! Our time this year.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Seems like just yesterday when I attended MBJ's breakout private screening of "Fruitville Station" he seemed like a nice young man seeing him there.

  • ???TheRider???

    He looks great, nice ad! OT: I still have my Coach bags I purchased when I got a “real” job almost 30 years ago, still in good shape. Might have to break them out?

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    To me a men don't look right with any brand of backpack on.....Unless and only for traveling, but for a everyday or hanging out.....NAH

  • iWasteTime

    He do fine.
    Can we get a post on Phedra fine a*s man ?

  • HotInCleveland

    I’m about sick and tired of monogrammed LV too particularly the neverfulls

  • HotInCleveland

    Coach did have some well made leather bags.

  • LYRICS

    YASSSSSSS!!!!! I can't even front, I was hoping he was going to "Shemar Moore" her, but he confirmed and I died a lil' inside!! LMAO!!

  • Yoni7

    Yaasss! That duffle hobo bag was everything!

  • Yoni7

    THIS!!!!!

  • LYRICS

    AMEN TO YOUR ENTIRE COMMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yoni7

    Awww, glad I can help. But *pssst - lean closer*, when YOU JUST mentioned you purchased stock in Coach.......guess who just bit and said "I'm about to do that too." LOL

    Do you have IG? Follow SupaCent and Realbbjudy (I think that's her name). I LUH THEM!!!!!!

  • Wreckognize Game

    These prices aren’t as high as I thought they’d be. Nice design

  • LYRICS

    NEVER owned MK and NEVER will! I ALWAYS considered it a "thot brand"

  • gail jones

    I'm with you. After school...it's a wrap

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • free

    they last long and there is one i want to rock but it would look too old school now. i don't like the newer ones or pebble leather ones.

  • Yoni7

    Those sneakers are hideous! That hoodie too.

  • free

    i also have backpack and travel bags. last FOREVER.

  • HotInCleveland

    From what I remember Coach had some high quality leather bags. I like these pieces except for the monogram being all over the place but that’s how I feel about all goods. I don’t want your name all over my stuff. Those that can spot quality will know. All my stuff is low key except the gaudy stuff my exes bought me.

  • gail jones

    ?! I do not see the hype about either (Coach nor Mikey B). You can't create sexy. Either you're BORN with it or it GROWS on you. I ? neither.

  • TriniHarlem

    ??? that was the plan. "I love it when a good plan comes together".

  • HotInCleveland

    Don’t sleep on MK. They have some well made work attire.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    every Macy's in the DC area is SATURATED w/MK. it's just too much for me. (and i used to love his clothing collection. but when the bags took off, it just got to be tew murch, Lol)

  • Blue

    People still checking for coach? Wakanda forever though. I'll support.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Yep, my momma loves Coach

  • pure_rachet

    I recently got a real nice purse non logo-ed. They stepped their game up but it put me back to broke biatch status.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • pure_rachet

    AUNTIE GOTTA GET PAID!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I want the bag that's in the ad, not the one posted on the site...

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yeah, i like his clothing and shoes (sans labels). and i actually like the styling of his bags, but they are EVERYWHERE... i'm just more low key by nature, so i don't like anything that 'screams' "trend" or "hot right now" ...i'm too old for the constant 'keeping up' life, LOL!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    indeed they do.

  • pure_rachet

    The only person I'm ok with carrying a backpack is @SandraRose

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yeah, their classic leather pieces are the truth. i adore a good leather bag.

  • Trace da Ace

    I second that emotion...

  • xxxgracious

    My boyfriend bought me a coach purse for Xmas. I cringed inside but he really tried. He told me yesterday that I should take it out the box and wear it. I removed things from my favorite purse and put my items in there but when I go out in public I get my wallet and keep the purse in the trunk...is that bad?!?!? Lol
    I'm not a coach girl. My mom has Fendi and Chanel bags and my dad always spoiled us with those types of designer bags. My bf is like a coach Michael kors guy and I'm like let's step up your designer game love. He still won't do it tho smh.

    I really would have dumped your money grubbing ungrateful ass. I warn my son about girls like you, and I do mean girls, not women, GIRLS.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    you better 'free' that bag... you say "old school" (others say "classic") Lol

  • HotInCleveland

    ??????

  • pure_rachet

    Sure did.

  • Yoni7

    THIS!

  • TriniHarlem

    Well damn ????

  • pure_rachet

    Im gonna post a pic. I really like it. It cost me a day of work!

  • HotInCleveland

    Exactly! It’s Vintage. Fawk what folks have to say.

  • dru and neil

    Exactly..people need to look for quality not name recognition all the time.

  • Rayne

    That purse is nice but I don’t need naan nudder coach purse ?

  • Yoni7

    Now some bags you KNOW are old and can't be "pulled off", for the most part.

  • FukkFolks2019

    Still get at least one Coach item every year and put it under my tree. To me from me.

  • TMW

    Backpacks are handy as diaper bags too though. Just bought one for someone who looked so burdened trying to carry the car seat and a tote bag type diaper bag.

    But...that’s all the love I can give a backback. It disturbs me on some level to see people my age (almost 50) with backpacks on. Not only is it NOT good for your back, but it also makes them look like they are trying to hold on to their youth...Put your laptop in a shoulder bag please!

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Rock it, he thought you may have enjoyed it; as you should!

  • TriniHarlem

    Umm yes Blue I do ?. They make good leather. Not the trendy stuff but the classic with no name insight will last years. Plus let me stunt because I'm a shareholder. Get into it ?

  • pure_rachet
  • TMW

    I used to be into Coach big time...until a couple of years ago actually. Still have so many from ALL they years past. Now I prefer to carry a wallet and nothing else.

  • HotInCleveland

    Right! Folks. Better check the label to see what material it is made of instead of the name.

  • hottlanta

    Happy new year l see u securing that bag for 2019.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Pretty ??

  • Yoni7

    Girl! I'm telling you, those shoes are the only things that I (will) have of his. I get the "Those are nice, what are they?" vs. the "Those MK's. They cute." It does not have to scream it's name to say who it is.

  • pure_rachet

    Lmaooo

  • FukkFolks2019

    As well. That is what it was this year lol. A wristlet. And actually it wasnt from me to me. My guy got it when we were out for Black Friday. Still put my name on it tho lmaooo

  • TriniHarlem

    I like

  • Yoni7

    Cute. Simple.

  • pure_rachet

    ?

  • HotInCleveland

    ?

  • TriniHarlem

    Tell him to buy you a share. Not much more than that wristlet. We elevating this year.

  • dru and neil

    I’m sorry it’s just a lack of home training to not be able to accept a gift graciously and with appreciation. I’ve gotten gifts from boyfriends I don’t really care for, but still wore it because I cared for THEM. I can’t stand golddigging ungrateful sh*t.

  • iWasteTime

    Mine too!
    Shoes, boots, wristlets, scarves, etc etc

  • Yoni7

    I’ve gotten gifts from boyfriends I don’t really care for, but still wore it...

    THIS!!! But now that we're almost 2-years post breakup, those $hits are getting replaced. LOL Right color. Wrong shoe. LMAOOOO

  • dru and neil

    If we break up it’s getting put away, some sh*t has even been thrown away.

  • oshh16

    Quality leather and low key classic syles..minus the items with c's all over them. The leather jackets and shoes real nice as well esp at the Tangier outlet, price is right and that store stay packed with Asian folk. Selling an MCM today myself.

  • Yoni7

    They've been put away. I've changed whole outfits because I needed THAT boot but didn't want to wear THAT boot. LOL #petty LOL

  • Blue

    Noted. Hit me with that stockholder discount too (black people!)

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Well damn!!!
    Who pissed in your cornflakes.

  • dru and neil

    I don’t know if I’d say that because I spent 1600.00 on a LV few years ago, 420.00 on a Coach around the same time and guess which bag is showing wear and tear first even though I do not use it nearly as much. The LV. Taught me a valuable lesson about wasting stupid amounts of money on overrated BS. Never again...and I hope somebody else reads this and changes their mind about wasting good money on some of these luxury brands, the sh*t is overrated as hell.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    I wont be upset with seeing this phyne sexy man on any ad but it wont make me buy any of there products ...

  • dru and neil

    Yeah......this rubbed me the wrong way. I’ll chill.

  • Listen2Me

    Can he afford to step it up? Don’t have that man out here drowning in debt. Appreciate the gift. Be the woman that can rock a Target purse and still own the room. Just my opinion.

    Lately I been looking at Dooney and Bourke and wondered why I stopped carrying them. The line looks to be revamped and very nice. I’m over spending a entirely too much money on bags, I’m looking for quality and style now not something flashy and recognizable.

  • Junkanoo

    It's the thought that counts most men would buy you a vacuum or blender throw that bag on your shoulders and strutt around town with it thankfully

    i used to like D&B. then, of course, there was some scuttlebutt about a blatantly racist ad campaign (something to do with a lawn jockey (yikes!), and i just couldn't 'deal' and i pretty much never looked back. of course if you search long enough, you'll find something racist or offensive in the history of these fashion/goods producers, so i'm not campaigning against them, just not supporting them with My $$$. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9c5524b933f3a29872256af8b9d30b4c9ec5914b980fdc0a0817cbbe688aa153.gif

  • Blue

    I am laughing loud. I feel you though. I had a lady step me up from coach to like getting her Dooney & Bourke. In our defense, us guys aren't up on all the top of the line purses. You're sweet for being patient with him though .. but that coach in the trunk though ... LMAO ..

    From what I see

    He's sexy... Bow legged with a nice build (not too much or too little muscle). He has pretty teeth, skin and eyes, a beautiful dimpled smile. And his swag gives off positive energy... Like he's a respectful man. I bet he's hung nice too ?

  • Renee26

    Maybe you need a wealthier man... I hope he doesn't see how his gift was unappreciated.

    Happy new year to you too babe!

  • xxxgracious

    I'm sorry I offended you. I really didn't mean to upset anyone. It's a powder blue purse I don't rock blur purses. I've been scolded by him for buying him express ties instead of ties from other stores. This is like my 3rd time commenting on this site but I'll just stay out of here from now on. And again I didn't mean to offend anyone and i appreciate my boyfriend for th3 gift I truly do but I'm allowed to say I don't like the gift. I never said it to hos face or tried to hurt his feelings. I haven't been able to express how i felt about it and thought this would be a cool platform since im anonymous and this is a group of women. I always saw this site as a little girl chat site but maybe this isn't for me. I hope you have a great new year!

  • Renee26

    I talked about him sooo bad that he knows better now. I'm the only female he spends him money on now ?

  • Renee26

    I first saw him on Fruitville station... Idris and Jaime were my crushes from The Wire... Ion even remember Michael ?

  • xxxgracious

    For the record I have a son as well. I wouldn't want that for him and I'm definitely not a little girl hence why I don't like my powder blue coach purse. i honestly wish that I posted a pic of the handbag before everyone came for my neck. I'm sure most of you LADIES would probably agree with me. Have a great new year!
