It’s Time to Suit Up
The Bryan School is partnering with JCPenney to host our 7th annual Suit Up event where Bryan School students have the opportunity to receive FREE* and deeply discounted professional wear (up to 30% off). While this year’s event will look slightly different than previous years, the purpose remains the same: To help build your professional wardrobe without breaking the bank.
This year, we are excited to announce we will be holding a week-long virtual event to help you find the professional outfit that best “suits” you! Please read below for more details.
* Sponsorship recipients receive a $250 gift card to be used on the purchase of a professional outfit at Suit Up. Sponsorship application information can be found at the bottom of this page.

Why You Should Participate
As you transition from college to the real world, you will need business professional attire. Whether you need a suit for an interview, a career fair, an internship, or your first day on the job, this is a great opportunity to get a free or discounted suit that makes you exude confidence.
The discounts given during Suit Up are exclusive to Bryan School students and come at a higher percentage than the typical coupons you would find in an advertisement. Suit Up gives you the opportunity to maximize your spending on important items like suits, blouses, dress shirts, skirts, pants, belts, shoes, and more!
If you are unsure of what clothing items you should purchase, it is highly recommended that you focus on business professional and/or business casual wear. You can learn more about these dress codes here.
