Here’s a quote from their website, StyleForSoldiers.com, but please do visit it yourself, and have a look. They provide stylish bespoke suits and accessories for wounded soldiers.

Moves my heart it does.

Style for Soldiers is a charity founded by Emma Willis MBE in response to the numerous casualties incurred in Iraq and Afghanistan.  In 2008 she began visiting patients at the Military Rehabilitation Hospital every 2 months, measuring them for a bespoke shirt as a gift of thanks for their bravery and sacrifice.  As injured servicemen and women faced unwanted medical discharge from the military Emma realised the need for smart, well fitting clothing to wear for interviews and formal occasions to help with confidence and morale as dressing properly was such a fundamental part of military life and a new uniform was needed. She approached various English brands to assist and M&S have now given over 750 suits, Russell & Bromley over 250 shoes, Burberry 200 Trench coats and Lock & Co Hatters 100’s of hats.  Emma has also designed a black ebony walking stick for those that need one, with a silver collar engraved with regiment and initials which the charity also provide.
