In this hot and humid Toronto weather, stripping down to your skivvies is about the smartest thing you can do to beat the heat. So the male models promoting will have one up on us when they bare all except their boxers, ties, socks and shoes on Tuesday, July 2, 2013. The un-fashion show at one of Toronto’s busiest intersections is to encourage Torontonians to donate gently used men’s suits, pants, shirts, jackets, ties, belts and shoes to assist unemployed workers when they go on interviews. The male models will also be handing out ice cream bars to passers-by to help cool them down.
Moores will accept donations of gently used men’s clothing from July 1-31, 2013. The clothes will be distributed to more than 60 organizations across Canada. The clothes will be given to men transitioning back into the workforce.
If you see a parade of men at Yonge and Bloor Streets from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on July 2, 2013 wearing next to nothing and carrying signs that say “Give the suit off your back,” no, that isn’t the Pride Parade.
So have a look through your closets this Canada Day weekend and see if you can spare unwanted men’s professional attire to donate to the suit drive.
