Help young people in need get dressed for success

Posted at 3:15 pm, May 19, 2013 in Shopping & Style

Dressing for a job interview is daunting enough without the added pressure of being homeless and not having anything to wear. A Suit That Fits, purveyors of the affordable tailored suit, have been donating their samples to youngsters in need for a while now, and last year called on the public to donate their unwanted suits to the A Suit For Success campaign, which garnered over 1,000 donations. This year, the brand is working in collaboration with Right Futures who work with 16-19 year old Londoners to get them into employment through training, apprenticeships and work experience, along with homeless charities Amber and Centrepoint. If you have a suit that hasn’t seen sunlight for a while, donations will be accepted until May 31 at A Suit That Fits’ London studios and by post. And if you need an added incentive, all those donating suits will receive a £50 voucher towards tailoring at A Suit That Fits. Get rid of old clobber and help a young person along the way? It’s win-win. Maggie Davis
