Abdul Ahmed, Ayaz Raja, and Lucas Anderson founded Adesso Man in 2016 as a passion project to change the men's fashion and lifestyle market.
With more than 15 years of combined retail experience, the three men recognized a significant gap in men’s retail. The outlets which existed offered few, overpriced options. At the same time, the global economy had taken a turn for the worst. The Adesso Man team dedicated themselves to providing accessible style for men from all walks of life, be it students, new graduates, or men looking to elevate their style.

"We started Adesso with the vision to cater to a niche in men’s accessories and lifestyle products and provide the best possible service. Our goal was to be a one-stop-shop for men of all walks of life and provide them with daily essentials to feel more confident. We became obsessed and committed to providing unparalleled service and styling to remind men how dedicated customer service feels. We want to build relationships and leave long-lasting impressions with our customers. Finally, we wanted EVERYONE to be able to be a part of our brand and our story, so we made our products more accessible and available for our customers through reasonable pricing so ANYONE would be able to express themselves through style."

Behind the name
The word Adesso in Italian means ‘NOW,’ or "in the moment."
European design has always been at the root of our brand philosophy. Italy, in particular, is at the forefront of fashion and the mecca for the latest and greatest trends. It only fits that we used an Italian word that encapsulates our identity and brand values.
We are fashion-forward, trend-informed, ambitious, and provide men with tools to help them make their mark on society.
