As you probably heard, last Friday was Formal Friday. As part of Made Man’s Gentleman Up campaign, we encouraged men and women across the nation to suit and dress up.

For every photo shared on social media with #GentlemanUp or #FormalFriday, we donated money to benefiting partners developing programs for men in need. The event was a huge success, with thousands of dollars raised and people everywhere looking sharp—including in our own offices.

Here are a few photos from LA and New York that show how Defy Media (Made Man’s parent company) walked the walk…
