We all have a surplus of shirts at the back of our wardrobes that we never wear; it’s now time to dig them out and head on down to this year’s “National Shirt Exchange Week”, which runs from September 26th to October 2nd. To mix things up, T.M.Lewin is teaming up with Shelter, a housing and homelessness charity, which not only means the shirts that you don’t want become something that someone else does want, but you’re also doing your bit as a good samaritan.
Each shirt you donate will be given to Shelter, and in return T.M.Lewin will donate £2 per sale. And before you start making an excuse like, “But I can’t make it to the store!” there will also be a shirt exchange initiative available online, where you will be sent a donation bag to take shirts to your local Shelter store.
To celebrate this wonderful cause, T.M.Lewin will be building a house made of donated shirts in Paternoster Square, London (26th) and in Spinningfields, Manchester (28th) from 8am to 6:30pm. There’s just one condition – the “White Label” collection is not included in this initiative. But get on down and help out – who knows, you might even spot a famous face or two.
