3rd Annual Henry Davidsen Suit Drive Challenge
Career Wardrobe & Henry A. Davidsen Give Back
Henry A. Davidsen: Master Tailors & Image Consultants, Philadelphia’s leader in custom tailored clothing, is once again challenging Philadelphians to donate gently worn professional wear in support of Career Wardrobe.
This year’s challenge: 5,000 suit items between April 2nd and May 7th.
Just in time for spring cleaning, President and founder of Henry A. Davidsen, Brian Lipstein is once again raising the bar, requesting Philly men to donate gently worn suits, sport jackets, dress shirts, ties, dress 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 the previous two 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 into a job interview not only looking the part but feeling confident, which is in line with what we do here at Henry A. Davidsen.”
Clothing will be collected at the following participating businesses: (check back for updates and additional locations to be added throughout the drive).

In a rare turn of events, we will be hosting open hours at the showroom for this event. Stop by, see what’s new, and support a great cause!
Suits & Sazeracs
On Monday May 7th, the final day of the suit drive, guests will celebrate at Suits & Sazeracs, a spirited cocktail competition bringing together top bar talent from across the city while raising funds to donate in addition to the clothing collected. This inaugural event will be held in the beautiful ballroom of Hotel Palomar and is generously co-sponsored by Bluebird Distilling and Square 1682.
To help spread the word about the Suit Drive, Henry A. Davidsen is encouraging people to share the #HDSuitDrive hashtag on their social media when they donate.
“The Suit Drive gives men looking to re-enter the workforce a chance at a new beginning said Lipstein. “Through this campaign, we have an opportunity to truly make a difference in people’s lives and communities.”
