Suit Yourself Gentlemen’s Clothing Closet


The Suit Yourself Gentleman’s Clothing Closet provides professional business attire and suits to individuals interviewing with prospective employers. Spearheaded by the Urban League, this project was developed in collaboration with MensWearhouse, Cintas, Macy’s and several other local companies. Services are provided to the Urban League’s Workforce Development program participants as well as young gentlemen affiliated with the Urban League. The Suit Yourself Gentlemen’s Clothing Closet started as a conversation among Urban League staff members. We discussed how Cincinnati had an outstanding resource for women in need of professional attire (our partner Dress 4 Success) but had little or no similar resources for men. That’s when we reached out to MensWearhouse and became the Non Profit recipient organization in Cincinnati of their National Suit Drive held every September.

All donations to the Suit Yourself Gentlemen’s Clothing Closet are accepted by appointment only. To set an up an appointment to drop of items please contact Edna Avelino at 513-487-5256 or by email at  Thanks for your support!
