Am I eligible to receive a suit?
Suit candidates are Baltimore area men who are ready for job interviews. We work with multiple service partners to provide referrals for receiving suits. We do not accept walk-in applicants.
You must have a referral from a Service Partner to be fitted for a suit.
The requirements for the Sharp Dressed Man suit program are that men being fitted for suits are actively working to re-enter the workforce, are not currently abusing drugs or alcohol, and, if they have a history of addiction, are actively rehabilitating from said addiction.
We are connected to organizations in Baltimore working with men transitioning from experiencing homelessness, incarceration, or other challenges. We cannot offer all the solutions, but we will point you in the direction of someone who can help. We also assist the education sector, outfitting young men preparing for interviews, internships, debate team, or other professional opportunities.
Who are your Service Partners?
We partner with multiple organizations in the Baltimore City area working to improve men's lives through job skill training and other social services. Please visit these sites or send an email to ask about a referral. Our current partner list includes:
