Three-time All Star and baseball MVP Mo Vaughn has stepped onto a new playing field — fashion.
Yesterday, Vaughn launched MVP Collections online, a line of men’s big-and-tall apparel, from casual wear to dress-up looks, retailing from $59 to $218. After struggling for years to find clothes to fit his bigger frame, Vaughn decided to start his own line with fashion executive and managing partner Diane Cutuli.
Vaughn’s fashion quest includes his hard-to-fit size-14 foot. Once his clothing line is up and running, the former first baseman may add footwear.

Because the husky fellas need nice clothes, too
Mo Vaughn, the three-time All Star and Major League Baseball MVP, has launched a line of men’s fashion clothing called MVP Collections, which includes graphic T-shirts, denim, tops and sweats in sizes XL to 4XL and denim sizes 38 to 50.
Years of searching for stylish clothes that fit his 6-foot-2, 230-pound frame is what piqued Vaughn’s interest in the plus-size men’s clothing business. The company’s first collection was made in the United States and has three categories: athleisure, weekend wear and night-out gear. All of the pieces are priced between $59 to $219.
Like many athletes who tend to be larger in size and height, after years of purchasing expensive custom clothes, Vaughn thought it was time to create a line that would be stylish and tailored specifically toward big and tall men.

MVP Collections will be marketed on social media and sold through its own e-commerce site.
Mo Vaughn is back in the game — the fashion game, that is.
Major League Baseball’s three-time All Star and Most Valuable Player, who played first base in the major leagues for 13 years, will introduce a line of men’s big & tall apparel today.
MVP Collections will offer casual apparel for sizes 1XL to 4XL in three categories: ath-leisure, weekend wear and night out. The 32 categories of merchandise will include activewear, denim, casual tops, T-shirts, dress shirts and sport coats. Denim will be offered in sizes 38 to 50.
Retail prices range from $59 for a graphic T to $218 for a moto-inspired stretch jean in premium denim.
“I’m the customer,” Vaughn said. “I was only able to buy a certain type of jean and everything else had to be made by my tailor. But I knew that [made-to-measure clothing] couldn’t be affordable to the average guy.”
In addition, he said, “The options available for big and tall men’s clothing are extremely limited and far from fashionable. With MVP Collections, we are bringing high fashion and style to a new level, creating streetwear looks with the big guy in mind.”
Vaughn teamed with Kellwood veteran Diane Cutuli to create MVP Collections, which will be sold on the company’s web site. Cutuli worked in women’s fashion for two decades on brands including XOXO and Baby Phat.
Vaughn said he’d had the idea for his own line for a few years, but held off until Cutuli, a family friend, agreed to come on board to spearhead it.
