MJF has also been known for his Burberry gear and scarf. It has almost become a key part of his character, something that he’s had with him for years.
During an interview with the SI Media Podcast, MJF detailed the origin story of why he decided to start adding Burberry scarfs to his wardrobe. That brought him to get his own custom Burberry AEW World Title.
“There was a 16 and under bar, like [a] club, but they didn’t serve alcohol, in Long Island. I went with my friends, it was the height of the summer, and, obviously, all the girls are all over me and that’s not hyperbole. I’m very good at getting with women. But there was one guy, in particular, who I could see also had a line forming for him, and, of course, this agitates me because whenever the spotlight’s not on me I get very agitated. I look at this guy — again, the height of summer — and this guy’s got on Gucci shoes, long black jeans, and a Burberry scarf, wool. Wool! It’s the summertime, it’s hot as balls not just outside, but in this club, and I’m thinking to myself, ‘You schmuck, the only reason you’re wearing that is so everybody in here knows you can afford it,’ and then I thought, ‘Huh!’ and there you go.“
MJF will defend that Burberry AEW World Title against Samoa Joe at AEW Worlds End on December 30th. We will have to see how that pans out for him, but odds are Joe won’t keep the Burberry if he wins that title from the Salt of the Earth.
