McCann Bespoke are thrilled to announce our latest charitable venture, agreeing to partner with Suited and Booted.
Suited & Booted is a charity based in the City of London. Public agencies refer vulnerable, unemployed and low-income men to them, and they then help them get into employment by providing suitable interview clothing donated by companies and professionals. They also offer their clients interview advice and mentoring. In their first year, they helped around 800 men for their job interview by providing them with a suit, shirt and tie, and accessories. There is a huge demand for their services, and now in their second year, they expect to help at least 1000 clients. Suited & Booted recognise that wearing a great suit or smart clothing can be an empowering, transformative experience, giving the wearer the self-esteem and confidence necessary to succeed at job interview and into employment. Stepping into a new suit or outfit not only changes the way others see you, but also changes the way you see yourself. When you feel and look your best, you exude confidence and ability. Psychologist Dr Mair says: “Being well dressed can improve our self-confidence and what we wear affects how we are perceived by others. Therefore, wearing appropriate clothes, for example, a formal suit for an interview, builds our confidence and can make us appear more serious, conscientious and respectful.”
The founder and owner of McCann Bepsoke, Neil McCann said about the partnership “The past year has effected all people in different ways. However, there are some people who from no fault of their own find themselves in real difficulty. Therefore, it is our societal responsibility to rally around these people, and we are delighted to offer our help both as a business and as people”.
To assist Suited & Booted, McCann Bespoke are delighted to announce our ‘Give it Forward” scheme. In this scheme, our tailors will carry out socially distanced collections of any unwanted clothing, to then deliver to the charity, who will distribute the items to those that need them most. For any suits, shirts, jackets, trousers or shoes, we will offer a £250 discount on any clothing order over £1000.
Therefore, if you want to refresh your wardrobe while contributing to an important charitable cause, then contact our sales director Alex Katseph at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07862 736214.
*All clothing donated must be clean and wearable.
