A Change of Clothes Changes Lives.

Sharp Dressed Man empowers men to improve their lives - equipping men in the Baltimore area who are preparing for work through job training programs with recycled suits for job interviews. Our professional presentation program gives men confidence and a professional look as they prepare for job interviews. We bridge a critical gap between job development programs that provide training and the remaining skills and look needed to be considered for and obtain employment. Sharp Dressed Man is the only program of its kind in the area, and our services are desperately needed in Baltimore and beyond.

When you get a guy all suited up and he looks at himself in the mirror, then he sees his own potential.
— Christopher Schafer, founder

Often a nice suit and appropriate business attire is the last hurdle for men getting back on their feet. Sharp Dressed Man equips men who are ready for work with a measure-to-fit, one on one styling experience resulting in a hand selected suit and accessories to wear to interviews and other occasions. 

Studies show we have seven seconds to make a first impression. Aligning a man's outer look with his inner character helps to remove biases and enables him to move ahead in his job search. Our suit program helps improve first impressions in the Baltimore region, helping men get back on their feet to live a better life. 

I’ve never worn a suit before. Now I feel like I can take on anyone and win.
— Charles S.

We were featured in Baltimore Magazine's 2016 Best of Baltimore issue. They named us the "Best Do-Gooder" - quite fitting, isn't it?
