FREMONT, CA (MEN'S WEARHOUSE) - Men's Wearhouse announced July 1, the launch of its sixth annual National Suit Drive with a goal to collect 150,000 gently used professional clothing items through July 31, to give unemployed men a chance to look their best as they re-enter the workforce.

Each year, National Suit Drive, the nation's largest collection of business attire for men, encourages Americans to donate their gently used business wear to help give a fresh start to millions of disadvantaged workers still facing unemployment.

In its first five years, the Men's Wearhouse National Suit Drive collected more than half a million pieces of business attire, including 120,000 suits, which helped thousands of men confidently re-enter the workforce.

"The Men's Wearhouse National Suit Drive provides opportunity to those who are less fortunate," said Doug Ewert, President and Chief Executive Officer at Men's Wearhouse. "A suit isn't just about the outward appearance; it's about bringing out the best in a man to give him the confidence to move toward success."

Although the national unemployment rate has begun to decline, 11.8 million Americans are still out of work, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

To battle unemployment, Men's Wearhouse has partnered with more than 150 nonprofit organizations around the country. These partner organizations distribute the clothing donations collected through the National Suit Drive to unemployed men and women in need. The local nonprofit partners also prepare these men and women to re-enter the job market through résumé-building workshops, interview preparation, and employment training programs.

To donate clothing to the National Suit Drive, patrons may go to any one of more than 900 Men's Wearhouse stores around the country to contribute their gently used men's suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes. Women's professional clothing items are accepted as well. This year, dress shoes and big and tall business attire are in especially high demand. Donors may also make a monetary contribution to the cause by donating directly to a participating nonprofit organization.  Monetary donations are accepted online at nationalsuitdrive.com or at any Men's Wearhouse location. All donors will receive a tax receipt.

As a thank-you, clothing donors will receive a coupon for 50% off the regular price of retail items (excluding shoes, clearance, and Everyday Low Price items) for their next Men's Wearhouse purchase.

To help raise awareness for the National Suit Drive, visit the Men's Wearhouse Facebook page to share images and videos and to track donations with a live donations counter. Follow the conversation on Twitter @MensWearhouse for real-time updates with #giveasuit. For every National Suit Drive mention on Facebook and Twitter, Men's Wearhouse will contribute $1 (up to $20,000) to the cause.
