Vulnerable men get suited & booted with suit swap campaign at House of Fraser

Men in the UK are being asked to surrender their old suits for a good cause. Whether they are a little tighter than they used to be or it’s just time for an upgrade, they can donate their unwanted threads at House of Fraser stores as part of the Suited & Booted campaign. The donated suits will go to vulnerable men, kitting them out in style for job interviews, while customers will receive a £100 voucher to spend in store.

Launched in 2012, Suited & Booted is a London-based charity that works with vulnerable, unemployed and low-income men to provide suitable clothing, advice and mentoring for interviews. Men are referred to Suited & Booted by other charitable projects and organisations including, Job Centre Plus, NHS, Careers Development Group, Social Services. Suited & Booted help over 1,000 disadvantaged men each year with clothing, advice and mentoring for interviews. Please visit: www.suitedbootedcentre.org.uk

The Suited & Booted campaign at House of Fraser runs from 18th August to 13th September at all 58 formal wear stores, including outlets. The £100 voucher is redeemable on all full price suits and must be used in store (not redeemable online). See House of Fraser for your nearest store.
