The athleisure line, MSX by Michael Strahan, will include tees, polos, chinos, and jogger pants, which may not sound all that impressive, but the difference is in the details.

MSX by Michael Strahan drops May 21 and will be sold in The Men's Store at JCPenney with it's own dedicated presentation. Prices range from 12.99 to 25.99.
