Charity Lining To Raise Money For Injured Soldiers
Classic British menswear chain Austin Reed has added a new lining to its bespoke suit department, aimed at raising money for injured serviceman charity Walking With The Wounded.
The tailoring specialist revealed the design this week, which features the not-for-profit organisation’s logo in red, alongside the news that a £40 donation will be made for every one sold.
Austin Reed bespoke suits are available in a number of cuts, colours, fabrics and finishes at stores across the UK.
The campaign is being fronted by former solider David Wiseman. The 29-year-old, who is also representing the UK in swimming at the Invictus Games, was shot in Afghanistan in 2012 and has since worked with a number of support charities.
Walking With The Wounded works to re-educate, re-train and re-skill former military personnel following injuries in service as well as providing a support network to veterans.
The WWTW lining is available as an option in all bespoke departments across Austin Reed stores now. Prices for suits start from £399 with a production time of around six to eight weeks.
