The King & Allen Charity Appeal
As you may know from our Facebook and Twitter posts, King & Allen were delighted to be presented with a letter of recognition from the charity Mapis. They run a service called ‘Suit2Go,’ which provides suits to disadvantaged men, in an effort to help them back into employment. Although these men may have received advice on training and skills, very often they are disheartened with the interview stage, as they have nothing appropriate to wear.
King & Allen have been working with Mapis for the past few months and have so far donated some trousers, jackets, waistcoats, shirts, coats and much-needed clothing rails. We were delighted to be a part of such a worthy cause and it gave us an idea…
King & Allen are launching an appeal for donations of old suits, so that we can continue to support Mapis and their Suit 2 Go service. If you have any suits that you no longer wear but are in good condition, please consider donating them to us. We would be happy to receive your donations at any of our branches.

But the history of the pinstripe suit is anything from bland and, indeed, the suit itself has a host of connotations attached to it.Style Tips & Advice Style History
