with, online retailing, taking so much basic merchandise sales away from brick and mortar stores…that leaves mostly risk categories left for stores to merchandise ..ohh don’t get me wrong, brick mortar retailing, will continue, just really changed in the next couple of years….I think, this is a perfect place, for those of you, that consider yourselves, “princes of risk” to do your stuff…only ones, id bet on, being successful and staying in business after this dust clears, are YOU

This is the second Reuters article that has stated that Jos. A Bank is “known for renting and selling tuxedos,” this incorrect. Jos. A. Bank and Men’s Wearhouse are mid-market men’s wear stores know for selling cheap suits.

Sandler accused Bank’s board of looking after its short-term interests and not those of the shareholders. I disagree. For the love of God, please don’t let a Men’s Wearhouse – Jos. A. Bank deal go through. Bank represents quality merchandise at reasonable prices. Men’s Wearhouse represents … well … cheap clothing. As someone aptly put it “Jos. A. Bank is a poor man’s Brooks Brothers. Men’s Wearhouse is for a poor man.”

I hope the Men’s Wearhouse never gets its hands on Jos. A. Bank.
