Help us Stay Sharp!

Sharp Dressed Man is dedicated to empowering men to improve their lives through professional presentation. We provide recycled suits for job interviews to men actively engaged in a workforce development program with various organizations throughout the Baltimore area.  

Sharp Dressed Man was founded by a partnership between the Baltimore Fashion Alliance and the Living Classrooms Foundation in 2011 to support men re-entering the workforce. We have established relationships with over a dozen local agencies, instituting a referral process to support individuals in the community seeking employment. 

We equip men who are ready for work with a one on one styling experience resulting in a hand selected suit and accessories to wear to interviews among other occasions. Often an appropriate, business-professional outfit can be the last obstacle standing between men who have completed work training and employment.

WE ARE MUCH MORE THAN A CLOTHING CLOSET - OUR VOLUNTEER TEAM OF STYLISTS ENSURE EVERY PARTICIPANT LEAVES LOOKING AND FEELING THEIR ABSOLUTE BEST. PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS REPORT A SIGNIFICANT BOOST IN THEIR CONFIDENCE AND COMPOSURE, GIVING THEM THE POWER TO PRESENT THEIR BEST SELVES TO FUTURE EMPLOYERS AND CONTINUE ON THE JOURNEY TO SUCCESS!

Sharp Dressed Man's program is resolute in providing formal business wear for all of those in need. Our program serves an average of 2,000 men a year seeking employment. While unemployment rates continue to rise in the wake of COVID19, Sharp Dressed Man is preparing to aid the vast numbers of individuals seeking employment in a post-pandemic future.
