SHARP DRESSED MAN WAS FOUNDED AS A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN LIVING CLASSROOMS AND THE BALTIMORE FASHION ALLIANCE. WE FIT MEN FOR SUITS ON A REFERRAL BASIS BY REPUTABLE ORGANIZATIONS AND ARE ACTIVELY LOOKING TO CREATE NEW PARTNERSHIPS WITH SOCIAL SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS IN THE BALTIMORE AREA THAT WORK WITH MEN TRANSITIONING FROM HOMELESSNESS OR INCARCERATION INTO THE WORKFORCE.
Our Service Partners are essential to ensuring the success of our organization. We rely on our partners to vet potential candidates. In order to receive a suit through Sharp Dressed Man, suit candidates must bring in a referral form from a partner agency. This way we can keep records of the men we help, and are not put in a position to judge who “deserves” a suit – while still maintaining integrity and ensuring that suits go to men who are truly in need.
