Former Major League Baseball player Mo Vaughn has become one of the leading icons for big and tall men in the retail space. During his 12-year career, he was a three-time All Star and won the MVP award in 1995 with the Boston Red Sox. But when he launched MVP Collections in 2016 with Managing Partner Diane Cutuli Bennett, Vaughn changed the landscape of big and tall men’s fashion.

Four years later, he has truly shown that he is the MVP, not just in baseball but in fashion too. The brand continues to thrive in a segment that is underserved and has become a staple in many plus size men’s closets as well.
