All-Gender Tailors Bindle & Keep Are Dressing Wrongfully Convicted Prisoners

by BUST Magazine


Bindle & Keep crafts dashing bespoke suits that make their customers look on the outside how they feel on the inside. The company’s inclusive, highly individualized approach to fashion has made Bindle & Keep a popular choice for queer and trans folks. To further its mission of clothing all bodies to feel like their best selves, the company is currently providing pro bono suits to wrongfully incarcerated individuals freed with the assistance of the Innocence Project. The suits help those like Carlos Sanchez, who was released after serving 25 years for a murder he maintains he did not commit, transition from prison uniforms to workplace-ready clothes with style.
