Philadelphia Retailer Hosting Suit Drive to Benefit Unemployed Philly Men

Henry A. Davidsen: Master Tailors & Image Consultants, Philadelphia’s leader in custom tailored clothing, is challenging Philadelphians to donate 1,000 suit items by April 6th in support of Career Wardrobe.

Just in time for spring cleaning – President and founder of Henry A. Davidsen, Brian Lipstein is throwing down the gauntlet, challenging Philly men to donate gently-used suits, ties, jackets, shirts, 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 last 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 in to 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 Henry A. Davidsen showroom in Rittenhouse as well as the following participating businesses:

  • American Executive Centers | Several Locations
  • Expert Technology Associates | 400 Davis Drive | Plymouth Meeting, PA
  • Rife Real Estate | 625 W. Ridge Pike, Building F | Conshohocken, PA
  • Ron Jaworski Management | Several Locations |
  • Kistler Tiffany Benefits | Several Locations |
  • The Safeguard Group, Inc. | 100 Granite Drive, Suite 205 | Media, PA

On Thursday, April 6 th , the final day of the Suit Drive, guests will celebrate with a party and presentation at the Henry Davidsen showroom to kickoff a three-day Trunk Show event. As a thank you, donors will receive 10% off their next suit purchase.

Premier vendors, Dormeuil, purveyors of luxury fine cloths and Adrian Jules, bespoke tailor for Henry A Davidsen’s highest end line of custom suits, and one of only 2 remaining grade-six menswear shops in the USA, will be on site offering guests exclusive deals on premier cloth and showing samples for the season. Trunk Show attendees will receive 40% off Dormeuil fabric – for each cut purchased, guests will earn one entry to win a fabric length for a sport coat valued at $900. With the purchase of a sport coat, attendees will receive 30% off a pair of coordinatingpants, or with the purchase of a suit 50% off a vest or second pair of pants.Additionally, custom shirts will be 10% off 4 or 5 and 15% off 6.

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. Henry A. Davidsen is located at 1701 Spruce Street, for more information please visit
