In 2012, more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores collectively hope to gather 110,000 items through National Suit Drive and distribute them to approximately 200 nonprofit organizations around the country. Together, these organizations offer support when unemployed Americans need it most:
“At Men’s Wearhouse, we believe every man should own at least one great suit,” said Doug Ewert, President and Chief Executive Officer at Men’s Wearhouse. “First impressions are critical, and having the right outfit builds confidence, particularly in a job interview. In the past five years of National Suit Drive, we have collected more than a quarter of a million pieces of business attire, which have helped thousands of men confidently re-enter the workforce.”
This year’s National Suit Drive has already captured celebrity attention – stars showed their support by personally styling professional suit looks to donate to unemployed men in need. Actress Amanda Seyfried, actor and producer Tyler Perry, actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Tony Award winner John Larroquette all participated at the National Suit Drive booth at the 2012 Tony Award’s Backstage Creations Celebrity Retreat.
To donate clothing to the National Suit Drive, patrons may go to any one of more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores around the country to contribute their gently used men’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes. Women’s professional clothing items are accepted as well. All donated garments are distributed to local nonprofit partners that prepare men and women to re-enter the job market through résumé-building workshops, interview preparation, and skills-training programs. This year, dress shoes and big and tall business attire are in especially high demand.
