The Man Giving Suits To Ex-Convicts!

A non-profit gives free suits, ties and training to underprivileged men, in the New York City area. Starting the initiative in 2011, Kevin, 41, came up with the idea after seeing young men in his area unable to afford a suit for job interviews as well as those coming out of prison with no smart clothes in their possession. From ad hoc clothes rails on Harlem’s sidewalks to two boutiques (in Jamaica and Harlem) 100 Suits has expanded to offer clothing to women, academies for at-risk youth and in 2016, 100 Suits started going into Rikers Island correctional facility once a month and now works there every week, running a book club and mentorship programme.
