GO ARMY: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has signed on to represent a new collection of officially licensed U.S. Army wear. The designs from Authentic Apparel Group take classic military themes, such as M-65 and bomber jackets, and updates them for the contemporary market with modern fits and construction. “Authentic Apparel Group is about legacy, performance and innovation. I am proud to represent a company that supports and honors the everyday heroes that inspire me,” said Johnson, who recently wrapped filming the upcoming “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” and is now at work on “Fast & Furious 7.” The line has been picked up by Zappos and a portion of sales will go towards the U.S. Army’s morale, welfare and recreation program.
