MATT HARVEY AND GQ’S JIM NELSON TALK STYLE AND SPORTS FOR AOL’S WIN/WIN
New York Mets pitcher, Matt Harvey, sat down with GQ magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Jim Nelson, for an episode of AOL On Original series, “Win/Win.” GQ often celebrates athletes and their sense of style, and Harvey is among the many sports pros who have expressed an interest in the fashion arena.
With his visit to the men’s magazine, he got a chance to see how things are put together in the fashion world, with a tour of the office, an opportunity to meet with members of the team, and a chance to try on apparel from the fashion closet. Harvey also sat down with Nelson to discuss competitiveness in sports and style and his season-ending surgery. He also received advice from Nelson on difficult moments in a career and dealing with setbacks. Below are a few excerpts from Harvey:
On his GQ tour:
Walking in and seeing all the clothes, how everything is run, is a little overwhelming at first, but they’re doing a great job.
On his interest in fashion:
Getting involved in fashion, I think it starts with my sisters. Seeing their magazines lying around, watching their style change over the years. Looking good is fun and it’s New York.
On his competitiveness:
It’s in my family, it’s in my blood. We like to win and do whatever it takes to win. I think the competitiveness kind of hurt me a little bit this year. After having such a successful year and pitching the All-Star Game, and then all of sudden you find out you have to have season-ending surgery, it was definitely hard to hear but I think everything happens for a reason. So this year’s been tough but there’s a reason behind it.
