As our local economy grows, many Philadelphians are re-entering the workforce. For them, and even for those who are looking for their first jobs, we here at Henry A. Davidsen are willing to do anything we can to help.

Think about this: Aside from your resume, what do you need to get a job? The answer is, of course, a nice suit. Sadly, for many Philadelphians, it’s hard to find a nice suit at an affordable price — especially for those who have been out of the work force for a while.That’s why we’re hosting our Suit Drive Challenge. We’re challenging Philadelphia residents to donate 1,000 gently used suits.

The details are below, and we hope you can rise to the occasion! If you’re looking for custom made shirts in Philadelphia, stop by our Rittenhouse Square location.
