If you’re in the downtown Toronto area on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 and see a few men strutting the streets in their skivvies, don’t be mistaken: you are not watching a preview of the Pride Toronto Parade. In fact, these well-toned men in their weather-appropriate boxers are promoting Moores’ Canadian Suit Drive, which will take place in Toronto and other major Canadian cities from June 28 to July 31, 2012.
As part of the suit drive, Moores is accepting donations of gently-used men’s suits, pants, jackets, shirts, shoes and belts at its stores throughout Canada. The clothes will be donated to unemployed men who are transitioning back into the workforce. Currently, there are approximately 742,800 males of working age who are unemployed in Canada according to Statistics Canada. Moores has locations at 100 Yonge Street, 110 Eglinton Ave. E., 3150 Dufferin St., 129 Carlingview Rd. and 72 Steeles Ave. W. among others.
If you’re interested only in checking out these guys in their skimpy undershorts, you’ll find them on the street corner at Yonge and Bloor and Yonge and Eglinton (northwest corner) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 27, 2012.
I wonder if Don Cherry will donate one of his in-your-face, psychedelically-patterned, sunglasses-mandatory suits considering that Moores has been a sponsor of CBC’s Coach’s Corner for years. Best of luck to the job seeker who receives that piece of *cough* drapery *cough,* excuse me, clothing.
