Clothing: Men’s Wearhouse sells men’s sportswear and suits through its Men’s Wearhouse, Moores and K&G retail chains. It is also one of the biggest tuxedo-rental companies. Recently, it’s been going after younger shoppers with suits with slimmer silhouettes. It’s also trying to raise the average ticket price and announced in July that it’s buying upscale Joseph Abboud brand for about $97.5 million in cash.
