Men’s Warehouse is having its 5th annual National Suit Drive. If you’ve ever heard of the excellent charity Dress for Success which helps women in need get business-appropriate attire, well, this one’s for the dudes. I don’t know why they kick off the event almost three months in advance with the Capitol PurSuit Drive in June but they’ll be collecting suits all through the month of September. Though it’s called a suit drive, they’ll take any professional item that’s lightly worn and which can be passed on to men who need clothing to help them land a job. The full list of needed items are here but they include suits, sport coats, pants, and ties.

You can drop your items off at any Men’s Warehouse store; in the District that gives you one choice, just south-east of Dupont off Farragut Square, just steps from the Farragut North metro stop. If you live or work outside the city you can use the store finder on their website.


Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
