Men’s Wearhouse, owned by Tailored Brands Group, will launch its 10th annual National Suit Drive for 2017 this July. The initiative works on accumulating lightly-used professional clothing for Americans moving back into the workforce.
The endeavour was started with an aim to use clothing as a confidence booster and the donations will be disseminated to over 170 local non-profit establishments that help disadvantaged persons regain employment through job readiness programmes and workforce assistance services. In the last nine years, the initiative has enjoyed great participation, having collected more than 1.3 million articles of clothing and accessories in these years.

The fashion brand is accepting everything from men’s and women’s suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts and shoes, all of which should be in a good, wearable condition, at more than 750 of Men’s Wearhouse sites across the country. And as a form of gratuity, the contributors can obtain a 50 per cent discount on their next Men’s Wearhouse purchase of regular priced retail items (excluding shoes, clearance and Exceptional Value items).
Joseph Abboud, Chief Creative Director of Tailored Brands said, “Wearing the right suit not only enhances your outer appearance, it boosts your mindset as well. That’s what the National Suit Drive is about – helping people get that boost to feel their best, secure the job, and fulfil their dreams.”
