Working Gear Vancouver

Have you ever heard of Working Gear Clothing Society?  They provide clothing for men in the Downtown East side allowing them to get back to work and to give them that boost of confidence they need to be ready for those all important job interviews.  They get their referrals through Employment Service Providers in Vancouver that have identified a lack of nice clothing as a barrier to taking that next step.  They’re open Saturdays and men get a  30 minute appointment where they get fit for the right clothes for the right jobs.  Much like Dress for Sucess, I think this is really a tangible, valuable service that helps give that person the leg up they need to feel valued!

What Working Gear needs:

  • Business casual
  • Old Suits and Dress Shoes
  • Work boots
  • Gloves
  • Vests 
  • Rain gear
  • cold hard cash

Basically any item of clothing that will help a gentleman boost his self-esteem and nail that interview.  

They’re located at 87 East Pender in Chinatown: here’s a link to the CBC Living Vancouver special that was on TV today at 3:00 P.M.
