Ok, we’ll say it. 2020 has been a tough year for many people. Between the Covid-19 pandemic, layoffs, and being unable to join our loved ones for the holidays, it truly has been a trying year for all of us. Now more than ever, supporting each other and supporting our communities is so vital. Through our #SupportTheGoods initiative, Devon + Lang has been working with and donating to local charities such as The Leftovers Foundation and the Calgary United Way. Most recently we’ve been keeping the good vibes going in our community by partnering with Adesso Man and the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth.
Oh Hey There Adesso Man.
Much like Devon + Lang, Adesso was founded by home-grown Calgarians solving a problem that they experienced in their own daily lives. Not having a mid-tier mens apparel store is what motivated Abdul Ahmed, Ayaz Raja and Lucas Anderson to open Adesso Man; a place where men can shape their own style with the quality and selection you expect from a premium store while avoiding the high price tag.
The Sexiest Thing a Man Can Wear? Confidence.
Being a homegrown company goes hand in hand with caring about the wellbeing of your community, and Adesso Man does a phenomenal job of supporting the community through their #adessolistens campaign. The main goal of this campaign is to elevate and empower individuals in the community to feel more confident in their everyday lives.
They focus on 4 main areas, that they call the “4 Pillars of Confidence”.
These 4 pillars are:
- Financial Wellness
- Physical Health
- Mental Health
- Education & Skill Level
We absolutely love this initiative, and it brings to mind a popular quote. “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. Arming people with the skills and knowledge to feel confident and succeed is one of the best ways to see tangible, long-term changes.
The D+L X Adesso Man Collab.
Devon + Lang is proud to have partnered with Adesso Man to bring you the Good Vibes Only line. Together we’ve designed a pair of Journey boxers and a 3-layer face mask. The Good Vibes Only line boasts same great quality that you have come to expect from Devon + Lang, with super sleek and flashy lime green trim that oozes confidence. The best part? Not only are you getting a unique design of our comfortable and breathable boxers and masks, but you are also helping to bring the good vibes to our community. 10% of all profits from the Good Vibes Only line go to the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth.
“Youth Thrive and not Merely Survive” – CBFY.
The Calgary Bridge Foundation (CBFY) was the perfect charity choice for this collaboration as it is a local Calgary charity, and it aligns with Adesso Man’s “4 Pillars”. The CBFY is an organization that works with immigrant/refugee children, as well as their families, to educate and equip them with the skills and knowledge they will need to build their new lives here in our great nation. Their core value statement is “Youth Thrive and not Merely Survive”. They have a vast array of programs to help children of all ages experience the smoothest transition possible into their new country. From improving English skills, personal and social skills, leadership, and assistance in successfully graduating from school and what the next steps are, the CBFY covers all of the bases. They do this through in-school/after school programs, mentorship programs, as well as a Youth Empowerment Program that they run through a partnership with RBC.
Devon + Lang & Adesso Man are proud to collaborate on the Good Vibes Only line and help out such an amazing organization. 10% of all profits earned from the Good Vibes Only line go to the CBFY to help support them in the incredible work they are doing.
