Men’s Wearhouse, a subsidiary of Tailored Brands and largest specialty retailer of men’s apparel and rental products in US, has teamed up with fashion expert and television personality Tan France to kick off its 12th annual Men’s Wearhouse Suit Drive. A month-long initiative, Suit Drive will collect gently-used professional clothing for Americans.

Donations collected at Men’s Wearhouse stores throughout July will be distributed to more than 150 local non-profit organisations across the country that will help disadvantaged individuals regain employment through job readiness programmes and workforce assistance, said the company in a press release. Over the past 11 years, the Men’s Wearhouse Suit Drive has collected more than 2 million items of professional clothing.

France wants men and women to reach their full style potential and help their chances of getting ahead in the workplace with well-fitted professional attire. “This is my second year working with the Men’s Wearhouse Suit Drive. It’s such a wonderful cause that ties naturally with my role as a stylist,” said France. “Dressing the part can help you stand out in a job interview and provide the confidence needed to ace it. The items donated during the Suit Drive allow that opportunity to those who may not have access to such clothes to better their lives.”

People can donate their gently used professional clothing, including men’s and women’s suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts and shoes at more than 700 Men’s Wearhouse locations across the country. As a thank you, donors receive 50 per cent off their next purchase of regular priced retail items.

“We’re proud of the role our teams and stores play to lead this important national initiative,” said Carrie Ask, president of Men’s Wearhouse. “When you donate to the Suit Drive, you’re giving someone the chance to feel confident and that’s a big deal, because confidence really counts in moments that matter.” (PC)
