"Clothes make the man": how a radical suit changes the impression of the personPictolic
Only one-tenth of a second! As much time got to make a first impression about yourself. A respectable appearance — one of the keys to success. In the framework of the social project showed how clothing can change the appearance and first impression of the man.
Charitable organization "Sharp Dressed Man" (its name can be translated as "a man dressed in a suit"), was founded in 2011 in Baltimore, supports people who return to normal life after rehabilitation or prison. Its founder Christopher Schafer works as a tailor in downtown Baltimore and creates costumes with a starting price of $ 3,000.
The idea of the project "Sharp Dressed Man" came to him when he was looking for a way to get rid of all of its high-end suits, in which its customers no longer needed. During the week he collected donations from customers and local residents, and then announced that anyone can come and get a free suit, a haircut and a hot meal. As someone who himself had once struggled with drug addiction, the best man knows how important it is to get a second chance.
