“The Suits Are Off” for the Fight against Unemployment – Men Shed Clothes on the Streets of San Francisco Encouraging Charitable Donations to The Men’s Wearhouse’s National Suit Drive

What: They’re back! Once again, scantily clad street teams will storm the streets of San Francisco to raise awareness and encourage others to give the suits off their backs for the Men’s Wearhouse’s Fourth Annual National Suit Drive, the country’s largest collection of business attire to help unemployed workers “suit up” for success.

Street teams will strut their stuff during the morning rush to encourage donations at more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse locations (including 10 stores in the San Francisco area). More information is available at

Why: Throughout the month of August, Men’s Wearhouse will collect gently used men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes and distribute these items to approximately five local charities, including Shoreline Workforce Development Services and Volunteers of America Greater Sacramento & Northern Nevada.”
