2017 Henry Davidsen Suit Drive Challenge

Henry A. Davidsen: Master Tailors & Image Consultants, Philadelphia’s leader in custom tailored clothing, is challenging Philadelphians to donate 1,000 suit items by April 6th in support of Career Wardrobe.

Just in time for spring cleaning – President and founder of Henry A. Davidsen, Brian Lipstein is throwing down the gauntlet, challenging Philly men to donate gently-used suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts, and shoes in support of local unemployed men.

All professional attire collected during the month-long initiative will go directly to Career Wardrobe, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit providing a professional wardrobe to unemployed, low-income men – from laid-off workers to recovering substance abusers to veterans.

“Based on last year’s overwhelming success we are excited to support such a worthy organization again,” said Lipstein. “Career Wardrobe outfits these men from head to toe so they can walk in to a job interview not only looking the part but feeling confident, which is in line with what we do here at Henry A. Davidsen.”
