Doing Good Together

Fashion Philanthropy

Tailored Consignment is an online business of high-end consignment and designer menswear, and have sold their items on eBay for over 13 years. Their eBay store, Tailored-Consignment, is consistently ranked as an eBay Top Rated Power Seller and, this holiday season, owner Brian Poretz is using his business to make a difference on eBay. Brian shared his inspiration and devotion to give back:

I felt it was important to "give back" since eBay has provided me with global outreach and customers from across the world, by running a charity auction though eBay Giving Works. A long-time consignor suggested that the proceeds from the auction could support Career Gear, a remarkable organization that provides men with job training and business appropriate clothes to wear on job interviews. I learned more about their programs and success stories, and realized it was a great fit for Tailored Consignment. 

Every man knows that feeling you get when you put on a fresh dress shirt, knot the tie with a perfect dimple, and slip into a well-fitting suit. The feeling is hard to describe, but it gives you a level of confidence to go about your day and succeed. Unfortunately, a lot of men are not able to afford that opportunity. Career Gear helps these men dress for success, and also offers them interview preparation skills. I knew that the men buying the designer ties, suits, and accessories in the Career Gear Charity Auction would immediately understand the connection. Not only are they purchasing something for themselves to look great; they are concurrently helping their fellow men acquire life changing clothing and training needed to feel confident and find a job.

Through December 14th, Tailored Consignment will feature over 100 pieces of men’s fashion and accessories to support Career Gear on eBay, including Tom Ford suits, Hermes ties and more. You can bid and browse the items here. All items will also be featured in our eBay Charity Shop, where you can also find other high end fashion items, exclusive auctions and one-of-a-kind items donated by your favorite celebrities.
