I made the mistake of purchasing a OTR suit from MensWearhouse. After coming to the forms and getting suits that are better quality and fit I am left with 2 blazers that don't fit me at all. One is a black Geoffrey Beene blazer and the other is a Ralph Lauren blazer. What should I do with them?

Generally put all my old clothes in the Salvation Army clothes bin at the supermarket near me, although as I imporve my wardrobe, there's less and less rubbish for me to get rid of.

If you have a quality piece, I would try for resale (eBay or B&S).  Most of my cast offs go to charity (Goodwill).  It's my way of helping out the next guy.

+1 Well done, and so do I. Salvation Army is a true Charitable Organization. smile.gif

Just a heads up...Goodwill is FOR PROFIT and not a charitable organization for more than 5 years already.

I'd say sell them: If someone is willing to spent money on them, he will value them higher than the person, who find its at the salvation army.

I have normally donated them to the Salvation Army, but started to (over)think:

If the Salvation Army sells it "here" and uses the income to finance good things where needed (e.g. drilling wells in poor dry countries, etc), I'm happy, but if they donate the clothes in a poor country it will undermine the business for the local clothes industry/trade.

If the clothes contain lots of synthetic fibres, they (plastic micro fibres) will via the laundry waist water end up in the food chain via small sea living animals, according to an article a SF member linked to. So burn them, but then that will add to the alleged (I beleive it's true) climate change.

Having followed SF for a while, I now have a better idea what I am looking for, so hopefully I will not buy that much clothes that I will want to get rid of and I also try to stick to natural materials as far as I can.
