Men's Wearhouse (NYSEMW) is a men's dress apparel retailer in the United States. The company is based in the Westchase area of Houston, Texas,[1][2] and it is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. The company was founded by George Zimmer in 1973.

The company operates under the names Men's Wearhouse, K&G Superstores (an off-price retail chain featuring discontinued items), Moores Clothing for Men (a Canadian chain of men's clothing stores), and Twin Hill Corporate apparel. In 1997, it purchased, then liquidated, the bankrupt Kuppenheimer chain.[3]

The chain runs television and radio commercials featuring Zimmer, and the oft-repeated slogan, "You're going to like the way you look; I guarantee it." According to Business Week, Men's Wearhouse targets the common man, with "the neatly displayed clothes in Zimmer's stores [being] designed to cater to the unpretentious guy who wants to do as little as possible to maintain his wardrobe."[4]

On November 17, 2006, Men's Wearhouse acquired After Hours Formalwear, a clothier specializing in black tie formalwear, from Federated Department Stores, the parent company of department store giant Macy's. After Hours Formalwear was originally rebranded MW Tux, but has now been rolled up under the Men's Wearhouse brand. The formalwear group within Men's Wearhouse specializes in tuxedo rentals for men and boys for black tie events.[5]

In August 2010 Men's Wearhouse acquired the trade and assets of Alexandra plc, which was in administration and Dimensions Corporatewear to develop its presence in Europe.

In 2009, Men's Wearhouse became a major sponsor of the United Football League and continued to sponsor the league in 2010. New CEO announced in 2011.
