Former Mets first baseman Mo Vaughn has enjoyed a very successful post-playing career as a low and moderate income residential real estate developer. He is now entering the world of men’s fashion as he has started a company called MVP Collections that makes stylish clothes for big men as their sizes start at XL and run all the way up to 6XL.
“I started the company because I could never find clothing that I liked in my size at most retailers including big & tall stores,” Mo told me at a media event last week at which his company debuted its line of jeans, t-shirts, polos, activewear, and dress shirts. For the time being however MVP is staying out of the men’s suit market.
The Arthur Ashe Institute of Urban Health held its 22nd annual fund-raising dinner last Wednesday evening. The AAIUH was started by the late tennis legend the year prior to his untimely passing and its mission to give opportunities to economically disadvantages young people to enter the many areas of health science.
