Make Unemployment Beg for Mercy

Tysons retailer collecting suits for donation

Everyone needs a power suit, even the unemployed. Hey, it's not all fun and games and eating cereal in front of the TV in the middle of the day.

Now you have a way to help folks look the part and get a new job, thanks to James Clothiers in Tysons Galleria, reports Northern Virginia Magazine. The clothing store is a collecting gently used men's suits as part of the store's new "Suits for Success" program, which benefits Strive D.C., a nonprofit that helps locals with job training and provides suits for those prepping for interviews.

Those who donate suits will score a $400 credit on the purchase of a new one at James Clothiers. The program will run through the end of November.
