With Father’s Day right around the corner, Würkin Stiffs, the designer of functional business style accessories for men, is partnering with non-profit organization Career Gear to help raise money to help low-income men reach self-sufficiency by preparing them to enter the workforce.

To date, over 35,000 men have been served through Career Gear’s job readiness program which provides men who seek to better themselves against great odds with business appropriate clothing. For those men improving their work skills and employability, the basic offering of a clean business suit is a simple, yet powerful tool in finding and maintaining employment.

Today providing suits for a job interview is just the first step. Career Gear has grown into a multidimensional nonprofit serving the needs of its participants through three distinct and congruent programs: The Job Readiness Program, The Professional Development Series and MAST, a mentoring program.

To this end, Würkin Stiffs has pledged to donate 3% of all sales at retail and online to Career Gear beginning May 16th and ending on Father’s Day June 16th, 2013. The company’s goal is to raise $5,000 for the cause which will help to better the lives of up to 50 men.

With a robust line of style accessories for men who want to present a professional image, Würkin Stiffs is well-suited for partnering with such an empowering charitable organization as Career Gear. “It is amazing the extent to which Career Gear is able to help turn struggling men’s lives around by providing the simplest of business necessities and services,” said Jon Boos, CEO of Würkin Stiffs. “We are very excited and proud to contribute to their ongoing success.”

The Würkin Stiffs product line features the company’s signature Power Stays®, the only magnetic collar stay to keep dress shirt collars in perfect place without the need for a stuffy old tie. To go along with its dress shirt and Polo Stays®, Würkin Stiffs also has a line of cufflink Knotz™ in snazzy color combos that are the statement-making Father’s Day accessories dear old Dad will actually put to regular use. Additionally, stainless steel cufflinks featuring art from renowned artists as Peter Tunney, along with one-of-a-kind patterns and periodic table combinations allow Dad to express his true personality at the office. Companion RFID blocked magic wallets, passport wallets and money clips round out the Würkin Stiffs collection.

Men looking for trendy, yet functional style accessories can purchase online at The product line is widely available for convenient purchase online and at fine retailers like Nordstrom, Sak’s Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Harry Rosen and Bloomingdales across the United States and Canada.
