Aki C. Ashe who loved designing custom tailored clothing and writing books about dressing for success founded Brooklyn United Ties in New York City. When Ashe would work all day, on his way home he would constantly see homelessness on the streets of New York City. One night he talked to several homeless individuals and asked them what item of clothing would best served them, and a majority of them answered a new pair of ‘socks.’ He then decided to make it his mission and business to help solve this problem. For every suit purchased he donates a sock to a person in need.
We plan to make an impact on our community by donating a pair of socks for every suit we sold, and continue that philosophy of thoughtful giving towards each clothing item we make. No matter what it is, one purchased = one donated.
OUR MISSION OF 1 MILLION+ PAIR DONATED
