What we do
How we help
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 multiple organizations throughout Maryland
Christopher Shafer, the Founder of Sharp Dressed Man and his team are taking a lifetime of clothier skills and giving back to the community through custom fitting each suit to its new owner.
Through partnerships and community organizers, we ensure that each individual is ready for this step in his reintroduction and job search journey. When the time is right, through the support services Sharp Dressed Man and our Partners offer, lives are changed.
When you get a guy all suited up and he looks at himself in the mirror - Then he sees his own potential.
~Christopher Shafer, Founder

Stories of Hope
"YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST, YOU GAVE ME HOPE THAT I WILL FIND A GOOD JOB. WHEN I WALKED THROUGH YOUR DOORS TODAY I HAD A FROWN ON MY FACE, BUT ONCE I WAS PUT INTO MY SUIT I COULDN'T STOP SMILING. NOT TO MENTION THE SUIT THAT WAS PICKED OUT FOR ME WAS MEANT FOR ME. I FELT LIKE A NEW MAN AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY I WANTED TO CRY."
