Pre-Styleforum, I rented the tux for my wedding—long tie and all—from Men's Wearhouse. shog[1].gif

His suits are also made of synthetics.

yep, i agree, the newer commercials were kinda dope. Zimmer was doing the whole wayfars and a suit thing..

What a shame. But I'm sure he's going to bounce back from all this and have another company just like it.

I've been wondering how they would handle the new commercials and got to say I'm somewhat impressed. Watching the commercials about halfway through I think "I should check that place out" and then realize they're talking about Men's Warehouse and think " never mind". My point is the new commercials are you able to spark a slight interest in their store (at least with me) where previously I dismissed it out of hand.

Holy buckets! I always found Jos A Bank to be at least three steps above Men's Wearhouse.

I know (saw it after I posted) - I did like the way Gawker ran the story and some of the comments are funny...

My favorite gawker comment so far: "Years ago Boston Magazine in their annual "Best of" issue described Jos. A. Bank as "the place to shop for the middle manager going nowhere.""
