It’s the season for weddings and other formal events … and heading to closet only to find that your dress clothes no longer fit. Hey, it happens!
If you or someone you know is in need of some fancy attire that isn’t going to break the bank, Men’s Wearhouse is having a deal you’re not going to want to miss. The best part? It’s for a good cause, Men’s Wearhouse announced on Instagram:
This July 1-31, the Men’s Wearhouse suit drive is giving you a chance not only to save 50 percent in the store, but also help someone in need. All you have to do is donate that “OK, so it’s a little too tight” item to your local Men’s Wearhouse. In return, you’ll receive a 50 percent off coupon to use on your next purchase of regular priced retail items. What a deal!
The donated items, which can be men or women’s, must be only gently used. They’ll go to nonprofit organizations, which give them to someone who is currently unemployed and needs some new clothes for interviews, or to re-enter the workforce. Items you can donate include: suits, sport coats, dress shirts, jackets, outwear, accessories, ties, sweaters, vests, dress shoes, casual pants and women’s professional attire.
This is the 11th year for suit drive. Men’s Wearhouse collected an astounding 322,714 items last year. This year’s goal is 346,167 articles of clothing. To help them reach the goal, if you donate an item, be sure to post a photo on social media with the hashtag #GiveASuit — you might just inspire someone else to donate as well. We have a feeling that “Queer Eye” star Tan France, who partnered with the suit drive this year, will persuade some people:
“A positive, confident attitude is crucial in a job search,” said Scott Wilderman, one of the nonprofits partnering with Men’s Wearhouse for the suit drive.
And with a coupon for 50 percent off a new suit, we are confident you’ll feel great about making a donation. Time to clean out your closet and find a participating Men’s Wearhouse website near you.
