donate clothes and accessories

Suited & Booted is closed for the Christmas holiday between Thursday 21 December and Monday 8 January. We will not be able to take in any clothing donations during this period.

clothing donations

Any clothes you donate go directly to one of our clients, helping him look good, feel confident and increase his chances of a successful outcome.

We need QUALITY clothing and footwear in every size to accommodate the needs of our clients. We are desperate for shoes and larger size suits (above chest 44”) and smaller suits (chest 38”and below). All shirt sizes are needed but in particular we are always short of shirt sizes 14, 14.5, 15 and 17 and above.

We don’t have a budget for cleaning so very much appreciate that all donations are dry cleaned or freshly laundered and interview-ready when we receive them.

We always need suits, shirts, ties, cufflinks and belts, and shoes.

We also take in coats and warm jackets to keep our clients warm in winter.

Please note that we do not take individual suit jackets or individual suit trousers.

We would appreciate too any spare suit bags that you might have along with toiletries, new socks and underwear. Briefcases, bags and rucksacks are also very welcome.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not have any drop off points in London so you can either deliver in person to us on Gray’s Inn Rd at the times below or send your parcel to us. DropPoint offers a cheaper postal service for good causes.

DELIVERY TIMES FOR IN PERSON DONATIONS: Should you wish to deliver your clothing to us, please come along on Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday 1pm-5pm. There is no need to make an appointment. Other times by arrangement. Please can you fill in and place the attached DONATION SLIP into your parcel so that we can identify your donation.

I came to see you with my son Alessandro for a suit as he was having an interview. I am pleased to let you know that he beat six other candidates to get the apprenticeship and one of the reasons is that he looked so smart in his suit and was complimented by his future bosses. This is just a note from both Alessandro and myself to thank you so much for the help from you and your colleague.
