Clements and Church partners with Birmingham-based charity to help ex-servicemen

Clements and Church has collaborated with Suited for Success to recycle and repurpose its tailoring and accessories in order to help ex-servicemen on the path to employment.

When it comes to work interviews, looking and feeling good can make all the difference to the overall outcome. On Tuesday 19th February, the Church Street tailors worked alongside Birmingham-based charity Suited for Success to assist and advise a group of unemployed ex-military clients on how to wear suits and sharpen up their grooming whilst being offered one-to-one coaching and employment advise from The National Grid.

Tailors Aaron Foster and Michael Harris dressed 8 veterans in interview appropriate wear, styling classic charcoal or navy suits with white, blue and pink shirts, brogues or oxford shoes and coordinating ties and socks to finish the looks. And that wasn’t all, as local hairdressers Benjamin Ryan Hair were also on hand to trim beards and cut hair.

James, who was injured in his 12 years of service; said: ‘I have always wanted the opportunity to have someone choose the right clothes for me’, whilst Matt, who served 26 years in the army said ‘it makes me feel amazing, the fabric and the colour is perfect.’
