150 Teens Got Free Suits and Style Makeovers, Thanks to This Innovative Event

A good suit may just be the foundation of success, and no one knows that better than the Boys’ Club of New York.

BCNY hosted its second annual Suited Up event last weekend at the Harriman Clubhouse on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The benefit provided more than 150 of teenaged Boys’ Club members with gently used suits and accessories to wear for prom, graduation, and future college and job interviews. Retailers partook in the event as well—Banana Republic, Dolce & Gabbana, Hugo Boss, Men’s Wearhouse, The Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, and Vince were among the brands that donated.

In addition to the generous donations, stylists were on hand to assist the boys in their ultimate picks, and top fashion photographers stood by to capture the transformations.

Looking sharp, boys!
