In the Instagram launch video, the "Bad Boys For Life" actor rocks a navy blue track jacket, stating "it's just a sweatsuit…until it's not just a sweatsuit."
At this point, the 51-year-old opened his coat, revealing the colorful reversible side plus a yellow Bel-Air Athletics t-shirt underneath.
The reversible jacket, which is similar to the Bel-Air Academy suit jacket that Will's title character would turn inside out, is only one of the items available for purchase.

Other clothing items include t-shirts, track pants, throwback t-shirts, and hoodies. Some of the T-shirts and baseball caps feature a cartoon drawing of Will as an athlete.
It seems business is already picking up for Will, as Daily Mail revealed that one of the items, a Limited Edition Gym Bag Kit, is already sold out.
