    Hi. Through working in Hugo Boss and a few other brands with uniform policy, I have gained a lot of "boring" clothes.

    I have, and this is not a joke: 24 of the same white shirt, 4 black slim fit classic suits. None of them being used.


    The reason why I don't use those items, is not because they are old (they are all gained in 2015) but because I get a lot of new stuff to wear at work instead.

    I doubt these items have any resell value, so I am more curious to know if you guys had any ideas. I know there's a "Red Cross" nearby where they have containers for clothes, which will be donated to charity - but does that cover stuff like white dress shirts and suits aswell? [​IMG]

    Make a few phone calls. There are usually charitable groups who collect business clothes only and distribute them to folks in need.

    I'm sure if you post your size and ask for a minimal cost or shipping, you'll get interested individuals here on the SF. You won't be able to write them off your taxes but they'll probably end up in good use. White shirts are staples and black suits can be used as work horses in certain industries.
