Guys, if you need a reason to clean out your closet, here’s one. Men’s Wearhouse has launched its seventh annual National Suit Drive and is seeking donations of gently used suits and professional attire.

The clothing will be distributed to more than 180 nonprofit organizations that provide training to unemployed men seeking to re-enter the workforce and underemployed men.

“I will never forget the suit that I wore to my first job interview. Knowing I was properly attired gave me the confidence to speak with more authority, to stand a little straighter,” said Joseph Abboud, chief creative director at Men's Wearhouse. “Whether you are a twentysomething seeking a first job or an unemployed professional hoping to revitalize your career, the need to look and feel your best in order to rise to the occasion is universal.”

This year’s goal is to collect 150,000 clothing items. Though July 31, Men’s Wearhouse stores will accept donations of gently used clothing, including men’s and women’s suits, jackets, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts and shoes. Donors will receive 50 percent off their next purchase from Men’s Wearhouse, excluding shoes, clearance and Exceptional Value items.

Men’s Wearhouse has stores in Oklahoma City, Moore, Tulsa and Owasso.
