Official Press Release:
Alial Fital Menswear has signed PGA Tour player Jim Renner, who will wear the apparel and show the company logo on his right sleeve in 2014.
“I sampled and tested a lot of apparel this off-season and the choice to go with Alial Fital was an easy one.” Says Renner, “The clothes fit perfectly, and the styling of the shirts is second to none. I also really appreciated that they are made in the United States.”
Alial Fital (Ah-lee-all Fit-ahl) was created by former NFL Quarterback Gibran Hamdan after a 6 year career with the Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins, & Buffalo Bills.Upon retiring from the NFL Gibran taught himself how to sew using his wife Jenny's sewing machine. Making his own dress shirts, Gibran’s friends started requesting the carefully designed and custom-made polos for themselves. Gibran leads Alial Fital as CEO and Creative Director. The impetus for starting Alial Fital, named for his parents Laila and Latif (spelled backwards), came from a desire for Gibran to focus on his favorite things - design, art, and creativity.
“I couldn’t be happier to welcome Jim to the Alial Fital Family. What more could you ask for than someone of Jim’s high character representing your brand. I feel extremely fortunate to now have 2 pro golfers and first class gentleman representing AF on the PGA Tour. Says Hamdan, I’m excited to treat Jim as part of our family and do everything I can to ensure he looks good, feels good, & plays good. Yes, I just quoted Deion Sanders.”
Renner returns to the PGA Tour in 2014 for the second time. During 2013, Renner had a excellent year on the Web.com Tour with four top ten finishes including a 2nd place, 4th place and two 9th place finishes. Renner finished the Web.com Tour season #17 on the money list, securing his PGA Tour privileges in 2014. Renner played his rookie season on the PGA Tour in 2011, which was highlighted by top 5 finishes at the Reno Tahoe Open and Viking Classic.
