What is the "best" way to dispose of a closet full of men's suits and shirts?

I have a dozen men's suits and about three dozen men's dress shirts, plus some assorted dress pants and ties. All fit the same guy.
Some of the suits are in great shape, others have a bit of wear on them. Almost all of the suits are Hickey-Freeman suits, and almost all have had minor tailoring. The shirts are all department store purchases with no tailoring.
Is listing only the ones in good shape, one-by-one on ebay the way to go? Or will I extract more value by bundling them together?
There are some pieces like a tuxedo and a few like-new suits which I'm inclined to list individually, but I'm not sure if bundling those good items in a big batch with the other items will result in better end-results.
I've listed and sold electronics and camera equipment on ebay, but not in the past 5 years. I've bought clothing on ebay and understand that this is a bit of a time investment, but I think I have a willing partner and a kid to help out on some of the legwork.
Alternative to ebay is a massive charity donation, I think. But I'm open to other alternatives.
