Give the suit off your back!

Young men in boxers promote the National Suit Drive.

This morning, thousands of rush hour commuters were exposed to an unusual sight.

Men wearing only socks, dress shoes, ties and boxer shorts stood vigil at some of Atlanta’s busiest intersections — holding signs that read, “Give the suit off your back.”

The reason for this eye catching stunt was to promote the Men’s Wearhouse National Suit Drive. Throughout August, Men’s Wearhouse stores throughout the U.S. will accept donations of gently used professional attire to help men seeking employment make a good first impression at job interviews.

Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency is one of the beneficiaries of the program. It’s one reason ACSS graduates are not only among Atlanta’s most qualified job applicants, but also the best dressed!

The National Suit Drive runs through August 31, 2011. For every suit collected, Men’s Wearhouse will donate a tie to the cause.

The company is also donating $1 for every new “like” it receives this month (up to 10 thousand) on its Facebook site. Click here for more details on the National Suit Drive.
