The Men’s Wearhouse Inc began operations in 1973 as a partnership and became a public company in 1992. On January 31st 2016, Men’s Wearhouse reorganised as a holding company named Tailored Brands Inc, which replaced Men’s Wearhouse as the publicly held corporation.
Tailored Brands is now the largest speciality retailer of men’s suits and the largest provider of rental product in the United States and Canada, with over 1,700 stores. Tailored Brands also operates a global corporate apparel and workwear group consisting of ten brands, including Twin Hill in the United States and Dimensions, Alexandra and Yaffy in the United Kingdom.
In August 2010, Tailored Brands acquired Dimensions along with Alexandra – the UK’s leading provider of PPE and ready-to-wear workwear and corporate clothing, and Yaffy – a specialist in technical garments for the UK police forces. As a result, MWUK Ltd was formed.
