BR Q&A: On & Off the Field with Matt Ryan

Confidence is the key to style, on and off the field. We asked style ambassador, pro football player and soon-to-be father Matt Ryan how he channels confidence in everything: on the field, over the holidays and while wearing his favorite pieces of the season, including our Mason-Fit Rapid Movement Chinos. His first thought? “They fit like a glove.”

BR: How did you get your nickname Matty Ice?

The name Matty Ice started when I was playing at Boston College. It just started amongst my close friends and teammates when they said I had ice in my veins and after so many years it stuck.

BR: You test drove the Mason-Fit Rapid Movement Chinos. What did you think?

Rapid Movement Chinos fit like a glove. I kid you not, they are the most comfortable, durable and stylish pair of pants I own. They are easy to wash, which is a plus moving from game day to going out with my wife.

BR: Any tips for dressing for the changing season?

Fall and winter are the best time to layer basics. The key to piecing together an outfit is making sure it doesn’t look too bulky. A simple V-neck T-shirt and a sweater is not only comfortable, but easy to match together.

BR: We heard you have to wear suits to away games. What do you look for in a suit?

Anytime I head to the stadium, you’ll catch me in a pair of good pants, a button up and a Banana Republic sport coat. The key to a good suit is the right fit and making sure you feel confident in it. For me, I always feel best in a great button-up.

BR: What are your thoughts on the classic car coat?

The car coat is a reinvented look from a classic design. Its versatility helps me match it with suits and with everyday wear.

BR: What are your travel essentials?

I can’t leave home without a good carry-on bag. I need to have access to my phone, wallet and everything in one tote that’s both functional and stylish.

BR: What are your holiday plans?

My plan is to stay as close as possible to my family. The holidays are the best time to bring everyone together to celebrate, even in the midst of the season.

BR: Have you made any adjustments to your game through the season that you can credit your wins?

This season I am really focusing in on our goals and communicating clearly with my teammates. Football is such a team sport, so we have to keep in constant contact with one another to be successful.

BR: What has been your game day M.O. this season?

For me, it’s more about going out there and playing my absolute best game. By focusing on the things I can control, I’ll be able to provide consistent results and help the team win.

BR: Any games that you were especially anticipating this season?

Every game is a new opportunity. I try not to look too far deep into the schedule and take everything day-by-day.

With a stacked schedule of game days and holiday celebrations, Matt Ryan tackles more than most on a daily basis. Rapid Movement Chinos let him skip the outfit change between work and play without sacrificing comfort and confidence.
