Fashion As Empowerment Samuel Baron Clothiers

Through our clothing choices, we communicate facets of our social identities. Samuel Baron Clothiers is well-versed in creating custom looks for any and all occasions, and we pride ourselves in creating custom clothing to fit the needs of all people. That is why it is important to us that we engage our LGBTQIA+ community; we wish to present the many ways in which our garments empower individuals in every walk of life, no matter their gender, sexuality, age, or race.

Joe King

How do you use fashion to express yourself? As custom clothiers, we create custom clothing to fit the needs of people in every walk of life, no matter their gender, sexuality, age, or race. Joe King, a brilliantly creative designer, emcee, and entrepreneur, embraces the variety of fashion, too. “For me, in my job, I wear many different hats, sometimes I’m professional and somewhat conservative, but as an artist, Emcee or event host, I almost always need to dress up, or at least dress with an edge.” Read more about Joe King in Fashion As Empowerment on our Blog.

Unlike traditional clothing stores that offer cut-and-dry sizes and styles under the assumption that certain physical proportions and personal tastes are the “norm,” Samuel Baron Clothiers embraces the fact that people exist in all shapes & sizes + outside & in between the gender binary. "In my experience as a trans person what I choose to wear becomes incredibly important to my identity. Under the trans umbrella I'm what they call genderqueer, which means I don't identify as a man or a woman." Read more about how Samone uses fashion to communicate their identity on our Blog, coming soon.
