(BALTIMORE – November 7, 2008) – Kevin Scott’s dream is now a reality: a men’s clothier location in the heart of downtown Baltimore at 324 Park Avenue.
Having worked for years to find and attain such a plush locale, the store is a manifestation of the greatness of a young African American man born and raised in this city. However, don’t get it twisted. Scott has also walked in Milan – searching, of course, for the finest - the absolute finest in menswear.
“I am just so grateful to the Almighty for the vision and the courage to see this through,” said Scott as he cleaned a portion of his new hardwood floor.
Having held his Grand Opening a couple of weeks ago, Scott said that his establishment offers everything from Mezlan shoes to the finest leather jackets available.

CHILDREN 1st MOVEMENT
Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.
- Malcolm X
All children in this country have the right to an education that enables them to learn and achieve at the highest level possible. This is a Human Right. To actualize this right, and therefore each child's potential, specific opportunities and support mechanisms or "Common Characteristics" must be present. No one characteristic is more important than another. All are required to provide the structure for ultimate student achievement and success.
The Baltimore City Public School System (BCPSS) must increase the educational options for all students. Parents must be empowered to become advocates for their children. BCPSS must provide an education that enables all students to make successful transitions to adulthood and to become vital contributors to their communities and to the world community.
We, as concerned citizens in Baltimore, are totally dedicated to assuring that our children receive what is rightfully theirs. Read in Full >>
