Hunter and Lords, a small tailoring business in Columbus, Ohio, is giving veterans a self-esteem boost with their “Suits for Soldiers” program. This summer is the fourth year they’re doing it and from July 4th to Labor Day, they ask people to nominate veterans or service members who could use a little confidence from a free custom-made suit.
After the nominations are in, the store chooses eight vets to get the suits and then the tailors start working. Everything from the socks to the shoes to the shirt are all custom-made, so an entire Hunter and Lords suit costs about $10,000! But Jim Rieser, the man behind the program, says all the donated materials and work are worth it when he sees the vets get the suits.
“The expression on their faces when that clothing goes on their back and when they have their kids watching and their wives watching – that’s all I need to see and hear,” Rieser explains.
