‘The Big Hurt’ Joining MVP Collections as Partner

Two years after launching, MVP Collections, a men’s big and tall brand founded by former Major League Baseball All-Star Mo Vaughn, has brought on a partner to expand the company’s visibility and reach.
Frank Thomas, “The Big Hurt,” a two-time MVP and MLB Hall of Famer, has joined the brand and will front four capsule collections that will launch for fall.
Thomas, an analyst for Fox Sports who is also on the broadcast team for NBC Sports Chicago, will become the brand’s third partner, along with Vaughn and Diane Cutuli-Bennett, a former Kellwood executive.
In an interview with WWD, Vaughn said he and Thomas have been friends since their college playing days and developed a mutual respect after being pitted against each other for decades. “He’s a professional and a great representative for our team,” Vaughn said. “Plus, he’s the customer.”
Thomas, who said he’s 6-feet 5-inches and nearly 300 pounds, said he saw the MVP Collections line in a DXL store in 2017 and was immediately drawn to it. “The clothes are hot and fashionable,” he said, adding, “no one takes care of the big guy. I’ve always loved fashion and this is right up my alley.”
Vaughn said he is “more bland” than

Will a Larger Adidas Yeezy Boost Release Hurt the Brand?

Kanye West always wanted this.
Not having royalties and not being able to produce more sneakers were the main reasons he left Nike. And upon signing his deal with Adidas, which started in 2013, he made it clear that he wanted more people to have access to his sneakers. Today he’s making good on that promise with the release of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in an all-white colorway that retails for $ 220. Customers will only be able to purchase the sneakers directly through adidas.com and the Yeezy Supply web site. They are reportedly releasing 1 million pairs of shoes.
West’s influence, along with scarcity, is what has bolstered the Yeezy footwear line. But what happens when a Yeezy Boost style becomes even more ubiquitous? Will it have the same trajectory as the Jordan brand, which lost market share and cache due to overproduction. WWD spoke with people in the sneaker industry to see if the release will hurt or help the brand.

WWD: What do you think of this release?
Matt Cohen: This is an interesting release because we’ve never seen something like this. For one, it’s a restock,

Zap!: How your computer can hurt you – and what you can do about it

From eyestrain to carpal tunnel syndrome, computer-related injuries are on the rise. This easy-access, well-illustrated guide explains a variety of potential hazards and what you can do to reduce your risk. Includes chapters on backache, headache, tendinitis, radiation, pregnancy, kids’ concerns, and much more. For more Zap!-related information, check out Don’s own Web site.There are more than 50 million desktop computers in the U.S., but few users know how their computers could be hurting them. In fact, more than ten million people a year are treated for computer-related health ailments. Zap! , an unusually accessible and heavily illustrated book, covers the entire spectrum of computer-related health hazards and preventative measures – from eyestrain to monitor radiation to carpal tunnel syndrome. Consider the scope of the problem: * Cumulative trauma disorders. More than four million of America’s computer users suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome (in the wrists) and other painful cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs). These injuries can cause pain and discomfort, and at their worst, permanent disability. (source: CTDNews ) * The fastest-growing complaint. 61% of occupational illness was attributed to CTDs in 1991, up dramatically from only 18 percent in 1981 (includes all occupational-related CTDs, not just computer-derived; source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). * Most-common surgery. Surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common operation performed under workers c

Lindsey Graham Doesn’t Think Being Single Will Hurt His White House Chances

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a 2016 Republican presidential candidate, would be just fine being single in the White House — and he doesn’t think voters will mind either.

Graham, who has never married, told The Huffington Post on Saturday that he didn’t think his marital status would affect his chances of winning the presidency.

“It’s up to people to make that decision. I feel real comfortable with who I am and the life I’ve lived. I’ve got a wonderful, supportive family. And the last time I checked, I didn’t see a sign on the White House that said ‘single people need not apply,'” Graham said at an event hosted by Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) in Boone, Iowa. “So I am good to go, I think I’d be a good commander-in-chief and I’d work really hard as president for everybody and for your family.”

Only two bachelors, James Buchanan and Grover Cleveland, have ever been elected president.

Since joining the presidential race last week, Graham has sought to highlight his foreign policy experience. According to HuffPost Pollster, which aggregates publicly available polling data, Graham is at the bottom of the 2016 Republican field.

TV TONIGHT: ‘Day Of The Doctor’ Reunites Three Time Lords – Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt In 50th Birthday Special

When is a TV show more than a TV show?

When it’s the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’, being shown on cinema screens around the world, amid plot hints and red herrings by writers, storyline clues pounced upon and debated by eager fans,

Because Steven Moffat and his team have been successfully secretive about the events around tonight’s festivities, we only know some bare bones.

Three Timelords unite for the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’

Special guests at tonight’s party include Daleks, Zygons and Elizabeth I. Current companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) is joined by a familiar face in Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), during three unfolding plots set in different times, destined to unite in one almighty battle.

Ingrid Oliver, Jemma Redgrave and Joanna Page are also on board, but the real birthday boys are Matt Smith and David Tennant, a combination enough to keep any more recent fans happy, plus the tantalising reappearance of John Hurt to explain away all those elliptical statements we’ve received thus far.

Who’d have thought a grouchy, grandfatherly figure would have stepped into a police telephone box in 1963 and, fifty years later, still keep us guessing?
