What is WITwear?
WITwear is a FREE clothes-borrowing program where students can borrow professional attire for up to one week for events where they want to look and feel their best. Traditionally, students access WITwear for use in interviews and recruitment events (like the Co-op & Career Fair), but many also borrow clothing for presentations (class or Accelerate/ EPIC presentations), attendance at a conference, and Wentworth-sponsored social events.
WITwear offers a variety of clothing options, sizes, accessories, and footwear. All items are dry cleaned upon return to WITwear and restocked for continued use. If you have any questions about accessing WITwear or available items, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hours of Operation:
Monday – Thursday from 10:00am – 3:00pm.
After hours appointments are available to accommodate students on co-op or with limited availability.
The WITwear store is only available to current Wentworth students and alumni and is accessed by appointment only. Appointments can be made by emailing email@example.com and providing your availability. Appointments must be made AT LEAST 24-48 business hours before a student’s event date, to ensure clothing availability and access.
Item Sourcing & Donations:
Donations to WITwear are sourced from faculty, staff, and friends of the Institute. We only accept gently used items in good condition. All donations are dry cleaned before we make them available to students.
If you would like to make a donation to WITwear, please contact Jesse Correia at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always collecting donations of gently used or new professional attire including suits, jackets, dress slacks, blouses, shirts, sweaters, blazers, ties, belts, handbags, jewelry, and shoes. We also accept donations of NEW dress socks and pantyhose to be given to students to keep permanently for their personal future use.
