The Sharp Dressed Man project

Today, we are glad to present you one very human initiative, supported by Christopher and Seth Schafer from Christopher Schafer Clothier.

Sharp Dressed Man was founded by the Baltimore Fashion Alliance in 2012 to support men re-entering the workforce - it collects gently worn suits & business attire and distributes them to men who are newly released from prison and trying to make a fresh start.

A clothing 'boutique' at the Mentoring Academy in Mt. Vernon (Baltimore, MD, USA) furnished with donations of recycled men's clothing was established through a partnership with the Living Classrooms Foundation.

There are a couple of hundred suits on three long racks stacked one atop another and two more standing on the floor. The garments carry some glossy labels: Vitale Barberis Canonico, Hugo Boss, Jones New York, Nordstrom, Prada, Ralph Lauren, etc.

Until now the program has provided suits to more than 500 men recently released from prison. For many, it's one of the first places they stop after getting out.
