Men’s retail conglomerate Tailored Brands and its subsidiaries, Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank, K&G Fashion Superstore, and Canadian retailer Moores Clothing for Men, have announced they are supporting the Movember Foundation, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. and the Canadian Cancer Society to promote awareness and raise funds for both men’s and women’s health and cancer research.
Each subsidiary will donate $100,000 each to the Movember Foundation, which funds projects focusing on prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention, and will also be contributing $50,000 each to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Canada-based Moores will also be contributing $50,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society.
In addition, each retailer is offering customers a special Movember deal starting November through December. Customers who sign up on Movember.com will receive a coupon for a free custom shirt with the purchase of a custom suit.
I am proud of how our brands are coming together to nurture our community and support such worthy causes,” said Doug Ewert, CEO of Tailored Brands, Inc. “Partnering with these charities is a good opportunity for us to get involved and to help these organizations with their efforts in the fight against cancer.”
“Movember partners have played an extraordinary role in a mission that has helped the Foundation create more than 1,200 men’s health projects in 21 countries,” said Adam Garone, co-founder and U.S. Country director at the Movember Foundation. “Our partnership with Tailored Brands will allow us to expand our brand awareness and reach new audiences – all in an effort to ultimately help men live happier, healthier, longer lives.”
