Giv­ing back

Dwane Casey re­mem­bers the one sports coat he owned in his youth. His mom painstak­ingly saved the $60 and pur­chased the coat from the men’s cloth­ing shop in Morganfield, Ken. – navy blue be­cause it went with ev­ery­thing. The Toronto Rap­tors head coach has worn out prob­a­bly dozens of sport coats since, but the sig­nif­i­cance of the first one isn’t lost on the 58-year-old. So Casey re­cently packed up 12 to 15 of his suits, plus an ar­ray of shirts and ties, and brought them to Moores for the Cana­dian Suit Drive, which pro­vides proper busi­ness at­tire to men try­ing to find jobs. “I’ve been blessed over the years and I want to help guys to feel good about them­selves when they’re go­ing for job in­ter­views,” Casey said. “You walk in for a job in­ter­view, you feel good about your­self, you look the part, you get that con­fi­dence go­ing.”
