Tech Threads

Tech Threads provides New York Tech students with free access to new and gently used professional clothing and accessories for interviews, career fairs, networking events, and the workplace, as well as other career-related experiences.

Tech Threads seeks to help students make the best impression possible as they explore and enter the professional world. It removes financial barriers that may prevent students from looking and feeling their best during professional experiences. Our inventory may include suits, dresses, skirts, button-down shirts, dress pants, ties, belts, scarves, jewelry, and other accessories.

Clothing and accessories have been donated through the generosity of New York Tech staff, students, faculty, and community members. Items and sizes available will vary due to donations.
