Determined to empower unemployed men by providing them with the necessary professional attire that will build their self-esteem and help “sell themselves” during job interviews, Men’s Wearhouse will hold its second annual National Suit Drive, now to September 30.

Concerned that thousands of men are unable to secure employment because they lack the initial, yet vital, step of looking presentable for a job interview, the nation’s leading retailer of men’s tailored clothing, is working with more than 200 local non-profit organizations throughout the country to collect thousands of articles of professional attire to be used by individuals looking to re-enter the workforce.

Men’s Wearhouse will donate one tie for every suit donated to help complete the outfit, as well as offer donors a 10 percent discount coupon in gratitude for their generosity.

All 1,065 Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse & Tux locations, including its Brooklyn location at the Atlantic Terminal, 139 Flatbush Avenue, will serve as drop-off sites for gently used suits, dress shirts, sport coats, slacks, ties, belts and shoes that will be used to benefit men in need of these items to transition into the workforce.

Last year, the inaugural suit drive garnered 125,000 professional items over a two-month period. This year, the company has set a goal of 150,000 items despite the economic downturn.
