We talk about how to wear a suit, and what suit looks best on who but what if you have never been able to afford a suit? How could you get ahead if you have never had the means to invest in your wardrobe? Many people are finding themselves in this exact situation. This is where Jerome’s and Dress Your Best come in.
When you first walk into an interview, it doesn’t matter how qualified you are, the first thing a potential employer notices is how you look and how you are dressed. It may sound vain but it is the truth. It’s important to look and feel your best when stepping into a new environment. This is where organizations like Dress Your Best are crucial. Dress Your Best (operated by Live to Give Relief) was created in the year 2000 and supplies men 18 and over that have been referred by non profit organizations, with quality professional clothes in order to dress for interviews and obtain jobs. Their vision is to “promote the economic independence of disadvantaged men across of the Greater Toronto Area”.
They accept any of your old business or dress attire such as: two piece suits, dress pants, blazers, sweaters, winter coats, belts etc. Here at Jerome’s we love helping out especially those less fortunate, which is why we’ve teamed up with Dress Your Best. Between April 1st and April 21st we will be doing a Suit Trade In Event! This event gives you the opportunity to give a little and get a little. You know those old suits that have just been hanging in the back of your closet? We want ‘em. If you bring in a gently used suit to our store you’ll get a $100 credit towards a brand new suit! You have the opportunity to positively impact men in your community and provide job opportunities to individuals who would otherwise never get the chance.
*Make sure all garments are dry cleaned before hand and are in good, wearable condition and please insure your suits are folded properly in a bag or box rather then a hanger.
