Beyond Measure: A Fashion Collaboration To Honor Social Activists

Beyond Measure

Three deserving nominees will win a custom suit and dress shirt from Bindle & Keep, plus a night’s stay at Ace Hotel New York.

In celebration of New York Fashion Week 2015, Ace Hotel New York is partnering with bespoke clothiers Bindle & Keep, JD Samson, Murray Hill, Eliza Byard, and dapperQ for Beyond Measure. This will be a rare opportunity to honor three deserving nominees with a custom suit and dress shirt from Bindle & Keep, plus a night's stay at Ace Hotel New York.

Bespoke suits are more than just articles of clothing; Bindle & Keep wants people to look the way they feel: confident, classic and exuding self-love.

"Naturally, clothing is an expression of the individual personality," says Derrick Ableman, Director of Marketing at Bindle & Keep. "But truly custom suiting can be like having your beloved family piano tuned by Carnegie Hall's in-house technician. Once brought together and harmonized, the wearer's self will sing out more clearly and resonate farther than ever before."

Kelly Sawdon, Partner and Executive Vice President at Ace Hotel, added: "Like Bindle & Keep, Ace celebrates individualism -- they're a natural partner for us to help recognize standouts doing impactful work for their communities by offering them a beautiful suit and a restoring night away."

They are asking neighbors, friends, and allies to nominate a special someone they think deserves one of these amazing suits -- anyone from activists and social workers to those in the law and civil rights sector, as well as any person fighting for positive social change.

They're accepting nominations until February 15 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Visit to share your nomination's name, heart's work, and reason for some fresh gear. You can include pictures, links, related press, inspired mix-tapes, testimonials and other supporting ephemera. This is open to NYC residents, or people who can easily travel to NYC.

Submissions will be judged by JD Samson, Murray Hill, Eliza Byard and dapperQ.

They winners will be announced February 17, during New York Fashion Week.
