PART I
ITEM 1. BUSINESS
General
     The Men’s Wearhouse began operations in 1973 as a partnership and was incorporated as The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. (the “Company”) under the laws of Texas in May 1974. Our principal corporate and executive offices are located at 6380 Rogerdale Road, Houston, Texas 77072-1624 (telephone number 281/776-7000) and at 40650 Encyclopedia Circle, Fremont, California 94538-2453 (telephone number 510/657-9821), respectively. Unless the context otherwise requires, “Company”, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
The Company
     We are one of the largest specialty retailers of men’s suits and the largest provider of tuxedo rental product in the United States (“U.S.”) and Canada. At January 29, 2011, we operated 1,192 retail stores, with 1,075 stores in the United States and 117 stores in Canada. Our U.S. retail stores are operated under the brand names of Men’s Wearhouse (585 stores), Men’s Wearhouse and Tux (388 stores) and K&G (102 stores) in 47 states and the District of Columbia. Our Canadian stores are operated under the brand name of Moores Clothing for Men in ten provinces. We also conduct retail dry cleaning and laundry operations through MW Cleaners in the Houston, Texas area.
     On August 6, 2010, we acquired Dimensions Clothing Limited (“Dimensions”) and certain assets of Alexandra plc (“Alexandra”), two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the United Kingdom (“UK”), to complement our corporate apparel operations conducted by Twin Hill in the United States. The acquired businesses are organized under a UK-based holding company, of which the Company controls 86% and certain previous shareholders of Dimensions control 14%. The Company has the right to acquire the remaining outstanding shares of the UK-based holding company after fiscal 2013 on terms set forth in the Investment, Shareholders’ and Stock Purchase Agreement. The acquisition-date cash consideration transferred for the Dimensions and Alexandra acquisitions was US$97.8 million (£61 million) and was funded through our cash on hand.
     As a result of these acquisitions, in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, we revised our segment reporting to reflect two reportable segments, retail and corporate apparel, based on the way we manage, evaluate and internally report our business activities. Prior to these acquisitions our corporate apparel business did not have a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company and we reported our business as one operating segment. Refer to the “Business Segments” discussion below.
     Also in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, we changed the method of determining cost under the lower of cost or market inventory valuation method used for our K&G brand (representing approximately 23% of our inventory) from the retail inventory method to the average cost method. We recorded the cumulative effect of the change in accounting principle retrospectively as of February 1, 2009. The cumulative effect of this change in accounting principle as of February 1, 2009 was an increase in inventory of $2.2 million, a decrease in deferred tax assets of $0.9 million and a net increase in retained earnings of $1.3 million. The retrospective application of this accounting change impacted both segment and consolidated operating income, as well as consolidated net earnings, for all comparable periods presented by insignificant amounts. The change in accounting principle did not have any impact on our previously reported net cash flows, sales or comparable store sales. Refer to Note 14 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements contained herein.
     During fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, we generated total net sales of $2,102.7 million, $1,909.6 million and $1,972.4 million, respectively, and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $67.7 million, $46.2 million and $58.8 million, respectively.

Business Segments
     As discussed above, as a result of our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, we revised our segment reporting to reflect two reportable segments, retail and corporate apparel, based on the way we manage, evaluate and internally report our business activities. Prior to these acquisitions our corporate apparel business did not have a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company and we reported our business as one operating segment. Prior period amounts reported as one operating segment have been revised to conform to our new segment reporting structure.
     The following table presents our net sales and operating income by reportable segment for the last three fiscal years (in thousands):

     Additional segment information, together with certain geographical information, is included in Note 11 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements contained herein.
     The corporate apparel segment provides corporate clothing uniforms and workwear to workforces with operations conducted by Twin Hill in the United States and, beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, Dimensions and Alexandra in the UK. Alexandra also operates in The Netherlands and France. We offer our corporate apparel clothing products through multiple channels including managed corporate accounts, catalogs and on the internet at www.dimensions.co.uk and www.alexandra.co.uk. We offer a wide variety of customer branded apparel such as shirts, blouses, trousers, skirts and suits as well as a wide range of other products from aprons to safety vests to high visibility police outerwear. With respect to our managed contracts, we generally provide complete management of our customers’ corporate clothing programs from design, fabric buying and manufacture to measuring, product roll-outs and ongoing stock replacement and replenishment. The corporate apparel segment accounted for approximately 6.0%, 0.7% and 1.1% of our total net sales in fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

     In our retail segment, we offer our products and services through our four retail merchandising brands — The Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux, K&G and Moores Clothing for Men — and on the internet at www.menswearhouse.com. Our stores are located throughout the United States and Canada and carry a wide selection of brand name and private label merchandise. Our retail segment accounted for approximately 94.0%, 99.3% and 98.9% of our total net sales in fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. MW Cleaners, a retail dry cleaning and laundry operation in the Houston, Texas area, is also aggregated in the retail segment as these operations have not had a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company.
     Below is a summary of store statistics with respect to our retail apparel stores during each of the respective fiscal years, followed by a brief description of each brand.

     At January 29, 2011 we also operated 35 retail dry cleaning and laundry facilities in the Houston, Texas area.
     Men’s Wearhouse/Men’s Wearhouse and Tux
     Under the Men’s Wearhouse brand, we target middle and upper-middle income men by providing a superior level of customer service and offering quality merchandise, including a broad selection of designer, brand name and private label merchandise and “big and tall” product, at regular and sale prices we believe are competitive with traditional department stores. Our merchandise includes suits, suit separates, sport coats, slacks, formalwear, business casual, sportswear, outerwear, dress shirts, shoes and accessories. We concentrate on men’s “wear-to-work” business attire that is characterized by infrequent and more predictable fashion changes. Therefore, we believe we are not as exposed to trends typical of more fashion-forward apparel retailers where significant markdowns to move out-of-style merchandise are more common. However, our concentration in “wear-to-work” business attire is impacted by macroeconomic trends, particularly employment levels.
     At January 29, 2011, we operated 585 Men’s Wearhouse apparel stores in 47 states and the District of Columbia. These stores are referred to as “Men’s Wearhouse stores” or “traditional stores” and also offer a full selection of tuxedo rental product. We believe our tuxedo rental program broadens our customer base by drawing first-time and younger customers into our stores. We believe this in turn generates opportunities for incremental apparel sales by introducing these customers to the quality merchandise selection and superior level of customer service at our traditional stores. To further accommodate these younger tuxedo rental customers, we also offer an expanded merchandise assortment of dress and casual apparel targeted towards a younger customer in our traditional stores.
     Men’s Wearhouse stores vary in size from approximately 3,100 to 9,700 total square feet (average square footage at January 29, 2011 was 5,673 square feet with 87% of stores having between 4,000 and 7,000 square feet). Men’s Wearhouse stores are primarily located in middle and upper-middle income regional strip and specialty retail shopping centers. We believe our customers generally prefer to limit the amount of time they spend shopping for menswear and seek easily accessible store sites. In fiscal 2010, we opened nine new Men’s Wearhouse stores and closed five stores.

Table of Contents

     At January 29, 2011, we also operated another 388 stores in 38 states branded as Men’s Wearhouse and Tux that offer a full selection of tuxedo rental product and a limited selection of retail merchandise, including dress and casual apparel targeted towards a younger customer. These stores, referred to as “rental stores”, are smaller than our traditional stores and are located primarily in regional malls and lifestyle centers. These rental stores vary in size from approximately 600 to 4,800 total square feet (average square footage at January 29, 2011 was 1,381 square feet with 85% of stores having between 1,000 and 4,000 square feet). In fiscal 2010, we closed 66 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores.
     Our Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores accounted for 68.1% of our total retail segment net sales in fiscal 2010, 67.6% in fiscal 2009 and 67.8% in fiscal 2008.
     K&G
     Under the K&G brand, we target the more price sensitive customer. At January 29, 2011, we operated 102 K&G stores in 28 states, 91 of which also offer ladies’ career apparel, sportswear and accessories, including shoes.
     We believe that K&G’s more value-oriented superstore approach appeals to certain customers in the apparel market. K&G offers first-quality, current-season apparel and accessories comparable in quality to that of traditional department stores, at everyday low prices we believe are typically up to 60% below the regular prices charged by such stores. K&G’s merchandising strategy emphasizes broad assortments across all major categories of both men’s and ladies apparel, including tailored clothing, casual sportswear, dress furnishings, children’s clothing, footwear and accessories. This merchandise selection, which includes brand name as well as private label merchandise, positions K&G to attract a wide range of customers in each of its markets.
     K&G stores vary in size from approximately 5,400 to 42,000 total square feet (average square footage at January 29, 2011 was 23,472 square feet with 63% of stores having between 15,000 and 25,000 square feet). K&G stores are “destination” stores located primarily in second generation strip shopping centers that are easily accessible from major highways and thoroughfares. K&G has created a 20,000 to 25,000 square foot men’s and ladies’ superstore prototype. In fiscal 2010, we opened one new K&G store and closed six stores.
     Our K&G stores accounted for 18.2% of our total retail segment net sales in fiscal 2010, 19.5% in fiscal 2009 and 19.3% in fiscal 2008.
     Moores
     Moores is one of Canada’s leading specialty retailers of men’s suits, with 117 retail apparel stores in 10 Canadian provinces at January 29, 2011. Similar to the Men’s Wearhouse stores, Moores stores offer a broad selection of quality merchandise, including “big and tall” products, at regular and sale prices we believe are competitive with traditional Canadian department stores. Moores focuses on basic tailored “wear-to-work” apparel that we believe limits exposure to changes in fashion trends and the need for significant markdowns. However, similar to the Men’s Wearhouse stores, this concentration in “wear-to-work” business attire is impacted by macroeconomic trends, particularly employment levels. Moores’ merchandise consists of suits, sport coats, slacks, business casual, dress shirts, sportswear, outerwear, shoes and accessories.
     We also offer tuxedo rentals at all of our Moores stores which we believe broadens our customer base by drawing first-time and younger customers into our stores. To further accommodate these younger tuxedo rental customers, we also offer an expanded merchandise assortment including dress and casual apparel targeted towards a younger customer in our Moores stores.
     Moores stores vary in size from approximately 3,600 to 15,100 total square feet (average square footage at January 29, 2011 was 6,306 square feet with 80% of stores having between 4,000 and 7,000 square feet). Moores stores are primarily located in middle and upper-middle income regional strip and specialty retail shopping centers. We believe our customers generally prefer to limit the amount of time they spend shopping for menswear and seek easily accessible store sites. In fiscal 2010, no Moores stores were opened or closed.
     Our Moores stores accounted for 12.5% of our total retail segment net sales in fiscal 2010, 11.7% in fiscal 2009 and 11.8% in fiscal 2008.

Expansion Strategy
     Our expansion strategy includes:
    opening a limited number of apparel stores in new and existing markets,
 
    expanding our e-commerce business,
 
    expanding our corporate apparel and uniform business,
 
    identifying potential opportunities in international markets, and
 
    identifying potential acquisition opportunities.
     In general terms, we consider a geographic area served by a common group of television stations as a single market.
     At present, we believe that our ability to increase the number of traditional Men’s Wearhouse stores in the United States is limited. However, we believe that additional growth opportunities exist through continuing the diversification of our merchandise mix, continuing our promotional strategies, relocating existing stores and adding complementary products and services. We believe the expansion of our retail merchandise selection to include dress and casual apparel targeted towards a younger customer will continue to generate opportunities for incremental apparel sales by introducing younger customers to the quality merchandise selection and superior level of customer service associated with our stores.
     We plan to continue to focus on achieving a significant increase in our e-commerce business during fiscal 2011 and intend to increase our online media and marketing spending. We will expand the breadth and depth of our menswearhouse.com online product offerings, including web-only and non-tailored merchandise, and we will launch a new e-commerce enabled site for K&G in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. We intend to continue to focus on improving our site functionality and conversion rate through staffing and technology investments and development partnerships. In addition, our database marketing efforts will be more concentrated on online opportunities. We believe these parallel efforts will contribute to enhanced growth in our e-commerce business for fiscal 2011 and future years.
     We plan to continue to pursue our U.S. corporate apparel and uniform program in 2011 through our existing sales force. In the UK, our corporate apparel expansion strategy includes growth in catalog sales by investing in direct market expertise, targeting non-customer contract opportunities, expansion into key European markets, sale of additional products to existing customers and identifying potential acquisition opportunities.
     We also plan to open one additional retail dry cleaning and laundry facility in the Houston, Texas area during fiscal 2011.
Merchandising
     Retail Segment
     Our apparel stores offer a broad selection of designer, brand name and private label men’s business attire, including a consistent stock of core items (such as basic suits, navy blazers and tuxedos) and a significant selection of “big and tall” product. Although basic styles are emphasized, each season’s merchandise reflects current fabric, fit and color trends and a smaller percentage of inventory is more fashion oriented. The broad merchandise selection creates increased sales opportunities by permitting a customer to purchase substantially all of his tailored wardrobe and accessory requirements, including shoes, at our apparel stores. Within our tailored clothing, we offer an assortment of styles from a variety of manufacturers and maintain a broad selection of fabrics, colors and sizes. Based on the experience and expertise of our management, we believe that the depth of selection offered provides us with an advantage over most of our competitors.

Table of Contents

     The Company’s inventory mix includes “business casual” merchandise designed to meet demand for such products resulting from more relaxed dress codes in the workplace. This merchandise consists of tailored and non-tailored clothing (sport coats, casual slacks, knits and woven sports shirts, sweaters and casual shoes) that complements the existing product mix and provides opportunity for enhanced sales without significant inventory risk. To further accommodate our younger tuxedo rental customers, we also offer an expanded merchandise assortment of dress and casual apparel targeted towards a younger customer in our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores stores.
     During 2010, 2009 and 2008, 56.3%, 56.0% and 54.6%, respectively, of our total retail men’s net clothing product sales were attributable to tailored clothing (suits, sport coats and slacks) and 43.7%, 44.0% and 45.4%, respectively, were attributable to casual attire, sportswear, shoes, shirts, ties, outerwear and other clothing product sales.
     We do not purchase significant quantities of merchandise overruns or close-outs. We provide recognizable quality merchandise at prices that assist the customer in identifying the value available at our apparel stores. We believe that the merchandise at Men’s Wearhouse and Moores stores, before consideration of promotional discounts, is generally offered at attractive price points that are competitive with traditional department stores and that merchandise at K&G stores is generally up to 60% below regular retail prices charged by such stores.
     Beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 and throughout fiscal 2009 and 2010, we made a strategic change to our promotional cadence by utilizing a variety of pricing techniques such as “buy one get one free” and “buy one get one for $100” versus our past practice of everyday low prices and only having two annual clearance events. Our promotional pricing strategy is designed to encourage multiple unit sales, and it allows us to offer our customers excellent value while still maintaining adequate margins and remaining competitive in the current economic environment.
     Corporate Apparel Segment
     In our corporate apparel operations, we work with our customers, who are generally businesses and organizations in both the public and private sector, to create custom apparel programs designed to support and enhance their respective brands. Our comprehensive apparel collections, including basic apparel categories such as shirts, blouses, skirts and suits as well as a wide range of other products from aprons to safety vests and high visibility police outerwear, feature designs with sizes and fits that meet the performance needs of our customers’ employees and utilize the latest technology in long-wearing fabrications. Career wear, casual wear and workwear make up an increasingly significant portion of the product mix as service industry customers continue to grow.
     Under our managed contracts, our customers receive a full range of services including design, measuring and sizing, employee database management and replenishment forecasting, supply chain management and distribution and logistics of finished products. Customers work with our in-house design and technical teams to design and develop uniforms or other corporate wear that creates strong brand identity. We utilize our management information and garment tracking system which highlights trends, identifies issues and provides benchmark data for the customer at all levels from individual wearer to enterprise-wide. This system also allows us to identify potential cost savings and develop solutions on behalf of our customers and to respond quickly to trends or other changing needs.
     With respect to our UK catalog and internet operations, customers can design an off-the rack program that provides custom alterations and embroidery on any of our standard, ready-to wear clothing. We work with such customers to create a distinctive, branded program that may include the addition of a company logo or other custom trim.

Customer Service and Marketing
     Retail Segment
     The Men’s Wearhouse and Moores sales personnel are trained as clothing consultants to provide customers with assistance and advice on their apparel needs, including product style, color coordination, fabric choice and garment fit. Consultants are encouraged to offer guidance to the customer at each stage of the decision-making process, making every effort to earn the customer’s confidence and to create a professional relationship that will continue beyond the initial visit. Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores are generally smaller than our traditional stores and are staffed to facilitate the tuxedo rental and retail sales process.
     K&G stores are designed to allow customers to select and purchase apparel by themselves. For example, each merchandise category is clearly marked and organized by size and suits are specifically tagged “Athletic Fit,” “Double-Breasted,” “Three Button,” etc., as a means of further assisting customers to easily select their styles and sizes. K&G employees are also available to assist customers with merchandise selection, including correct sizing.
     Each of our apparel stores provides on-site tailoring services to facilitate timely alterations at a reasonable cost to customers. Tailored clothing purchased at a Men’s Wearhouse store will be pressed and re-altered (if the alterations were performed at a Men’s Wearhouse store) free of charge for the life of the garment.
     Because management believes that men prefer direct and easy store access, we attempt to locate our apparel stores in regional strip and specialty retail centers or in freestanding buildings to enable customers to park near the entrance of the store.
     The Company’s advertising strategy primarily consists of television, radio, direct mail, email, online and bridal shows. We consider our integrated efforts across these channels to be the most effective means of both attracting and reaching potential new customers, as well as reinforcing our positive attributes for our various brands with our existing customer base. Our total annual advertising expenditures for the retail segment were $89.9 million, $81.8 million and $76.7 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
     The Company entered into a marketing agreement with David’s Bridal, Inc., the nation’s largest bridal retailer, in connection with the acquisition of 509 tuxedo rental stores in fiscal 2007. As a result, we have a preferred relationship with David’s Bridal, Inc. with respect to our tuxedo rental operations.
     We also offer our “Perfect Fit” loyalty program to our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores customers. Under the loyalty program, customers receive points for purchases. Points are equivalent to dollars spent on a one-for-one basis, excluding any sales tax dollars. Upon reaching 500 points, customers are issued a $50 rewards certificate which they may use to make purchases at Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux or Moores stores. We believe that the loyalty program facilitates our ability to cultivate long-term relationships with our customers. All customers who register for our “Perfect Fit” loyalty program are eligible to participate and earn points for purchases. Approximately 74% of sales transactions at our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores stores were to customers who participated in the loyalty program in fiscal 2010.
     Corporate Apparel Segment
     Sector characteristics tend to impact the corporate wear requirements of our individual customers. For example, retail customers typically have high staff turnover levels resulting in large replenishment volumes and significant seasonal demand, while banking customers generally have lower turnover and replenishment requirements but refresh or rebrand uniforms more frequently. The public service sector has historically consisted of fragmented regional authorities although there seems to be a move in the UK toward more consolidated sourcing units.
     Sectors which tend to be strong users of third party corporate wear providers are retail, finance, utilities, hospitality and leisure. Our customer base includes companies and organizations in the retail grocery, retail, banking, distribution, travel and leisure, postal, security, healthcare and public sectors. Our managed contract customers are generally organizations with larger numbers of uniform wearing employees or those that use uniforms as a form of brand identity. We have long established relationships with many of the UK’s top employers and we currently maintain over 25 managed accounts with an average account size greater than 15,000 wearers. Our typical catalog customers are small to medium sized organizations with a relatively smaller number of employees or organizations where brand differentiation is not imperative.

Table of Contents

     During fiscal 2010, one customer accounted for 13.6% of our total corporate apparel net sales; no other customer accounted for 10% or more of our total corporate apparel net sales. Management does not believe that the loss of any customer would significantly impact us.
     Under our managed contracts, we take responsibility for dressing our customers’ employees and are the exclusive supplier of corporate wear to many of our customers. Because of the nature of the managed contract model, we ensure that we are fully involved in all of our customers’ uniform requirements, from daily replenishment requirements to longer term rebranding plans and wider corporate wear strategy. As a result, our relationship and level of interaction with our customers is generally far deeper and more embedded than conventional customer-supplier relationships.
     Managed contracts are generally awarded through a request for proposal or tender process for multi-year contracts. Our teams continually monitor market opportunities to obtain access to such contracts. Regular contact with corporate wear buyers is supplemented with mail campaigns, attendance at trade fairs and trade magazine advertisements. Generally, we provide each managed contract customer with a specific account manager who often works two or three days a week on-site at our larger customers’ offices. In addition to maintaining customer requirements, the account manager is also responsible for suggesting and implementing ways of improving the customer’s corporate wear process.
     Our catalogs are distributed via mail and, in the U.S., by sales representatives. The catalogs offer a full range of our products and offer further branding or embellishment of any product ordered. Catalog orders can be placed via mail, fax or direct contact with our sales representatives. Our e-commerce platforms also allow online ordering via our websites and provide 24 hour functionality, with a full list of our products and their details and real-time stock information. In addition, we regularly develop dedicated websites for our corporate clients for use by their employees in ordering their company specific corporate wear.
Purchasing and Distribution
     Retail Segment
     We purchase merchandise and tuxedo rental product from approximately 900 vendors. In 2010, one vendor accounted for 10% of our total purchases; no other vendor accounted for 10% or more of our purchases. Management does not believe that the loss of any vendor would significantly impact us. While we have no material long-term contracts with our vendors, we believe that we have developed an excellent relationship with our vendors which is supported by consistent purchasing practices.
     We purchased approximately 24% and 41% of total U.S. and Canada clothing product purchases, respectively, in fiscal 2010 through our direct sourcing program. We have no long-term merchandise supply contracts and typically transact business on a purchase order-by-purchase order basis either directly with manufacturers and fabric mills or with trading companies. We have developed long-term and reliable relationships with over half of our direct manufacturers and fabric mills, which we believe provides stability, quality and price leverage. We also work with trading companies that support our relationships with vendors for our direct sourced merchandise and contract agent offices that provide administrative functions on our behalf. In addition, the agent offices provide all quality control inspections and ensure that our operating procedures manuals are adhered to by our suppliers.
     During 2010, approximately 80% of our direct sourced merchandise was sourced in Asia (76% from China, Indonesia and India) while 10% was sourced in Mexico and 14% was sourced in Europe and other regions. All of our foreign purchases are negotiated and paid for in U.S. dollars, except purchases from Italy which are negotiated and paid for in Euros. All direct sourcing vendors are expected to adhere to our compliance program. To oversee compliance, we have a direct sourcing compliance department and we also use the services of an outside audit company to conduct frequent vendor audits.
     All retail apparel merchandise for Men’s Wearhouse stores is received into our distribution center located in Houston, Texas, where it is either placed in back-stock or allocated to and picked by store for shipping. In the majority of our markets, we also have separate hub facilities or space within certain Men’s Wearhouse stores used as redistribution facilities for their respective areas. Approximately 35% of purchased merchandise is transported to our K&G stores from our Houston distribution center; all other merchandise is direct shipped by vendors to the stores. Most purchased merchandise for our Moores stores is distributed to the stores from our distribution center in Montreal.

Table of Contents

     Our tuxedo rental product is located in our Houston distribution center and in six additional distribution facilities located in the U.S. (five) and Canada (one). The six additional distribution facilities also receive limited quantities of retail product, primarily formalwear accessories, that is sold in our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores stores.
     All retail merchandise and new tuxedo rental product is transported from vendors to our distribution facilities via common carrier or on a dedicated fleet of long-haul vehicles operated by a third party. This dedicated fleet is also used to transport product from our Houston distribution center to the hub facilities and a fleet of leased or owned smaller vehicles is used to transport product from the hub facilities to our stores within a given geographic region.
     Corporate Apparel Segment
     Most corporate apparel garment production is outsourced to third-party manufacturers and fabric mills through our direct sourcing programs. We have developed long-term relationships with most of our direct manufacturers and fabric mills, which we believe provides stability, quality and reliability. We do not have any material long-term contracts with our vendors and no vendor accounted for 10% or more of our fiscal 2010 purchases. We also work with trading companies that support our relationships with our direct source vendors and with contract agent offices that provide administrative functions on our behalf. In addition, the agent offices assist with quality control inspections and ensure that our operating procedures manuals are adhered to by our suppliers.
     During 2010, approximately 71% of our corporate wear product purchases was sourced in Asia (primarily China, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Bangladesh) while approximately 29% was sourced from Europe and other regions. Our foreign purchases from Asia are negotiated and paid for in U.S. dollars, while our purchases from Europe and other regions are negotiated and paid for in pounds Sterling or Euros.
     All corporate apparel merchandise is received into our distribution facilities located in Houston, Texas for U.S. operations and in primarily Long Eaton, Glasgow and Bristol in the UK. Customer orders are dispatched to the customer or individual wearers employed by the customer via common carrier or pursuant to other arrangements specified by the customer.
Competition
     Retail Segment
     Our primary competitors include specialty men’s clothing stores, traditional department stores, off-price retailers, manufacturer-owned and independently-owned outlet stores and their e-commerce channels and independently owned tuxedo rental stores. We believe that the principal competitive factors in the menswear market are merchandise assortment, quality, price, garment fit, merchandise presentation, store location and customer service, including on-site tailoring.
     We believe that strong vendor relationships, our direct sourcing program and our buying volumes and patterns are the principal factors enabling us to obtain quality merchandise at attractive prices. We believe that our vendors rely on our predictable payment record and history of honoring promises. Certain of our competitors (principally department stores) may be larger and may have substantially greater financial, marketing and other resources than we have and therefore may have certain competitive advantages.
     Corporate Apparel Segment
     Dimensions and Alexandra are among the largest companies in the UK corporate wear market with much of the competition consisting of smaller companies that focus more on catalog business. The U.S. corporate wear market is more fragmented with most U.S. competitors being larger and having more resources than Twin Hill. We believe that the competitive factors in the corporate wear market are merchandise assortment, quality, price, customer service and delivery capabilities.
     We believe that our proven capability in the provision of corporate apparel programs to businesses and organizations of all sizes alongside our catalog and internet operations position us well with our existing customers and should enable us to continue to gain new catalog accounts and managed contracts. Certain of our competitors in the U.S. market may be larger and may have substantially greater financial, marketing and other resources than we have and therefore may have certain competitive advantages.

Seasonality
     Our sales and net earnings are subject to seasonal fluctuations. In most years, a greater portion of our net retail clothing sales have been generated during the fourth quarter of each year when holiday season shopping peaks. In addition, our tuxedo rental revenues are heavily concentrated in the second quarter while the fourth quarter is considered the seasonal low point. With respect to corporate apparel sales and operating results, seasonal fluctuations are not significant but customer decisions to rebrand or revise their corporate wear programs can cause significant variations in period results. Because of the seasonality of our sales, results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full year (see Note 15 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements).
Trademarks and Servicemarks
     We are the owner in the United States and selected other countries of the trademark and service mark THE MENS’S WEARHOUSE®, and MW MEN’S WEARHOUSE and design® and MEN’S WEARHOUSE® and of federal registrations therefor. Our rights in the MEN’S WEARHOUSE marks and its variations are a significant part of our business, as the marks have become well known through our use of the marks in connection with our retail and formalwear rental services and products (both in store and online) and our advertising campaigns. Accordingly, we intend to maintain our marks and the related registrations.
     We are the owner of various marks and trademark registrations in the U.S., Canada and the UK under which our stores and corporate apparel business operate or are used to label the products we sell. We intend to maintain our marks and the related registrations.
     We have entered into license agreements with a limited number of parties under which we are entitled to use designer labels in return for royalties paid to the licensor based on the costs of the relevant product. These license agreements generally limit the use of the individual label to products of a specific nature (such as men’s suits, men’s formalwear or men’s shirts). The labels licensed under these agreements will continue to be used in connection with a portion of the purchases under the direct sourcing program described above, as well as purchases from other vendors. We monitor the performance of these licensed labels compared to their cost and may elect to selectively terminate any license, as provided in the respective agreement.
Employees
     At January 29, 2011, we had approximately 16,600 employees, consisting of approximately 14,200 in the U.S. and 2,400 in foreign countries, and approximately 11,800 full-time employees. Seasonality affects the number of part-time employees as well as the number of hours worked by full-time and part-time personnel.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
     We wish to caution you that there are risks and uncertainties that could affect our business. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the risks described below and elsewhere in this report, particularly found in “Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements.” The following is not intended to be a complete discussion of all potential risks or uncertainties, as it is not possible to predict or identify all risk factors.
Our business is particularly sensitive to economic conditions and consumer confidence.
     During most of 2010, the U.S. and global financial and equity markets continued to reflect recessionary trends, including tighter credit and lower levels of consumer confidence, consumer spending and business activity in general, as well as high levels of unemployment. We believe that these market conditions affect us more than other retailers because discretionary spending for items like men’s tailored apparel tends to slow sooner and to recover later than that for other retail purchases. We do not know if or when these market conditions are likely to show significant improvement, and a sustained continuation or worsening of such conditions could intensify the adverse effect of such conditions on our revenues and operating results.
The general economic conditions in the UK and particularly service cut backs being put forth by the current government may reduce demand for the businesses of Dimensions and Alexandra.
     The UK has experienced and is continuing to experience an economic slow down. As a result of expected deficits, the UK government has announced significant reductions in public services including reductions in employment. Employees in the public service in the UK are a significant target market for the acquired businesses, and a substantial reduction in the number of these employees could adversely affect our UK operating results.
Our ability to continue to expand our Men’s Wearhouse stores may be limited.
     A large part of our growth has resulted from the addition of new Men’s Wearhouse stores and the increased sales volume and profitability provided by these stores. We will continue to depend on adding new stores to increase our sales volume and profitability. As of January 29, 2011, we operate 585 Men’s Wearhouse stores. However, we believe that our ability to increase the number of Men’s Wearhouse stores in the United States is limited. Therefore, we may not be able to achieve the same rate of growth as we have historically.
Certain of our expansion strategies may present greater risks.
     We are continuously assessing opportunities to expand complementary products and services related to our traditional business, such as corporate apparel and uniform sales. We may expend both capital and personnel resources on such business opportunities which may or may not be successful.
Any acquisitions that we undertake could be difficult to integrate, disrupt our business, dilute shareholder value and harm our operating results.
     In the event we complete one or more acquisitions, we may be subject to a variety of risks, including risks associated with an ability to integrate acquired assets or operations into our existing operations, higher costs or unexpected difficulties or problems with acquired assets or entities, outdated or incompatible technologies, labor difficulties or an inability to realize anticipated synergies and efficiencies, whether within anticipated time frames or at all. If one or more of these risks are realized, it could have an adverse impact on our operating results.
Our retail business is seasonal.
     In most years, a greater portion of our net retail clothing sales have been generated during the fourth quarter of each year when holiday season shopping peaks. In addition, our tuxedo rental revenues are heavily concentrated in the second quarter while the fourth quarter is considered the seasonal low point. Because of the seasonality of our sales, results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full year. Any decrease in sales during these peak quarters could have a significant adverse effect on our net earnings.

The loss of, or disruption in, our Houston distribution center could result in delays in the delivery of merchandise to our stores.
     All retail apparel merchandise for Men’s Wearhouse stores and a portion of the merchandise for K&G stores is received into our Houston distribution center, where the inventory is then processed, sorted and either placed in back-stock or shipped to our stores. We depend in large part on the orderly operation of this receiving and distribution process, which depends, in turn, on adherence to shipping schedules and effective management of the distribution center. Events, such as disruptions in operations due to fire or other catastrophic events, employee matters or shipping problems, may result in delays in the delivery of merchandise to our stores. For example, given our proximity to the Texas gulf coast, it is possible that a hurricane or tropical storm could cause damage to the distribution center, result in extended power outages or flood roadways into and around the distribution center, any of which would disrupt or delay deliveries to the distribution center and to our stores.
     Although we maintain business interruption and property insurance, we cannot assure that our insurance will be sufficient, or that insurance proceeds will be paid timely to us, in the event our Houston distribution center is shut down for any reason or if we incur higher costs and longer lead times in connection with a disruption at our distribution center.
Our stock price has been and may continue to be volatile due to many factors.
     The market price of our common stock has fluctuated in the past and may change rapidly in the future depending on news announcements and changes in general market conditions. The following factors, among others, may cause significant fluctuations in our stock price:
    news announcements regarding actual or forward-looking quarterly or annual results of operations,
 
    comparable store sales announcements,
 
    acquisitions,
 
    competitive developments,
 
    litigation affecting the Company, or
 
    market views as to the prospects of the economy or the retail industry generally.
Our success significantly depends on our key personnel and our ability to attract and retain key personnel.
     Our success depends upon the personal efforts and abilities of our senior management team, particularly, George Zimmer, and other key personnel. Mr. Zimmer has been very important to the success of the Company and is the primary advertising spokesman. Although we believe we have a strong management team with relevant industry expertise, the extended loss of the services of Mr. Zimmer or other key personnel could have a material adverse effect on the securities markets’ view of our prospects and materially harm our business.
     Also, our continued success and the achievement of our expansion goals are dependent upon our ability to attract and retain additional qualified employees as we expand.
Fluctuations in exchange rates may cause us to experience currency exchange losses.
     Moores conducts most of its business in Canadian dollars (“CAD”). The exchange rate between CAD and U.S. dollars has fluctuated historically. If the value of the CAD against the U.S. dollar weakens, then the revenues and earnings of our Canadian operations will be reduced when they are translated to U.S. dollars. Also, the value of our Canadian net assets in U.S. dollars may decline. Moores utilizes foreign currency hedging contracts to limit exposure to changes in U.S. dollar/CAD exchange rates.
     Dimensions and Alexandra, our UK-based acquisitions, sell their products and conduct their business primarily in pounds Sterling (“GBP”) but purchase most of their merchandise in transactions paid in U.S. dollars. The exchange rate between the GBP and U.S. dollars has fluctuated historically. A decline in the value of the GBP as compared to the U.S. dollar will adversely impact our UK operating results as the cost of merchandise purchases will increase, particularly in relation to longer term customer contracts that have little or no pricing adjustment provisions, and the revenues and earnings of our UK operations will be reduced when they are translated to U.S. dollars. Also, the value of our UK net assets in U.S. dollars may decline. Dimensions and Alexandra utilize foreign currency hedging contracts as well as price renegotiations to limit exposure to some of this risk.

We are subject to import risks, including potential disruptions in supply, changes in duties, tariffs, quotas and voluntary export restrictions on imported merchandise, strikes and other events affecting delivery; and economic, political or other problems in countries from or through which merchandise is imported.
     Many of the products sold in our stores and our corporate apparel operations are sourced from many foreign countries. Political or financial instability, terrorism, trade restrictions, tariffs, currency exchange rates, transport capacity limitations, disruptions and costs, strikes and other work stoppages and other factors relating to international trade are beyond our control and could affect the availability and the price of our inventory.
Our business is global in scope and can be impacted by factors beyond our control.
     As a result of our increasing international operations, we face the possibility of greater losses from a number of risks inherent in doing business in international markets and from a number of factors which are beyond our control. Such factors that could harm our results of operations and financial condition include, among other things:
    political instability or acts of terrorism, which disrupt trade with the countries where we operate or in which our contractors, suppliers or customers are located;
 
    recessions in foreign economies;
 
    challenges in managing our foreign operations;
 
    increased difficulty in protecting our intellectual property rights in foreign jurisdictions; and
 
    restrictions on the transfer of funds between the United States and foreign jurisdictions.
Our business could be adversely affected by increased costs of the raw materials and other resources that are important to our business.
     The raw materials used to manufacture our products are subject to availability constraints and price volatility caused by high demand for fabrics, weather conditions, supply conditions, government regulations, economic climate and other unpredictable factors. In addition, our transportation and labor costs are subject to price volatility caused by the price of oil, supply of labor, governmental regulations, economic climate and other unpredictable factors. Increases in demand for, or the price of, raw materials, distribution services and labor, including federal and state minimum wage rates, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
     The costs of cotton and other raw materials significant to the manufacture of apparel have increased recently as have the costs of manufacturing in China. These increased costs could materially affect our results of operations to the extent they cannot be mitigated through price increases and relocation to lower cost sources of supply or other cost reductions. These increased costs could particularly impact our managed contract corporate wear business which tends to have more long term contractually committed customer sales arrangements with limited price flexibility.
Our business is subject to numerous, varied and changing laws, rules and regulations, the interpretation of which can be uncertain and which may lead to litigation or administrative proceedings.
     The sale of goods at retail is subject to rules issued by the payment brand industry, and laws, rules and regulations promulgated by national, state and provincial authorities, including laws, rules and regulations relating to privacy, use of consumer information, credit cards and advertising. These laws, rules and regulations and the interpretation thereof are subject to change and often application thereof may be unclear. As a result, from time to time, the Company is subject to inquiries, investigations, and/or litigation, including class action lawsuits, and administrative actions related to compliance with these laws, rules and regulations.

If we are unable to operate information systems and implement new technologies effectively, our business could be disrupted or our sales or profitability could be reduced.
     The efficient operation of our business is dependent on our information systems, including our ability to operate them effectively and successfully to implement new technologies, systems, controls and adequate disaster recovery systems. In addition, we must protect the confidentiality of our and our customers’ data. The failure of our information systems to perform as designed or our failure to implement and operate them effectively could disrupt our business or subject us to liability and thereby harm our profitability.
Rights of our shareholders may be negatively affected if we issue any of the shares of preferred stock which our Board of Directors has authorized for issuance.
     We have available for issuance 2,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $.01 per share. Our Board of Directors is authorized to issue any or all of this preferred stock, in one or more series, without any further action on the part of shareholders. The rights of our shareholders may be negatively affected if we issue a series of preferred stock in the future that has preference over our common stock with respect to the payment of dividends or distribution upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up. See Note 7 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.

     We lease our stores on terms generally from five to ten years with renewal options at higher fixed rates in most cases. Leases typically provide for percentage rent over sales break points. Additionally, most leases provide for a base rent as well as “triple net charges”, including but not limited to common area maintenance expenses, property taxes, utilities, center promotions and insurance. In certain markets, we lease between 3,000 and 51,600 additional square feet as a part of a Men’s Wearhouse store or in a separate hub warehouse unit to be utilized as a redistribution facility in that geographic area.
     We own or lease properties in various parts of the U.S. and Canada to facilitate the distribution of retail and rental product to our stores. We also own or lease properties in Houston, Texas and various parts of the UK to facilitate the distribution of our corporate apparel product. In addition, we have primary office locations in Houston, Texas and Fremont, California with additional satellite offices in other parts of the U.S., Canada and Europe. The following is a listing of all owned and leased non-store facilities as of January 29, 2011:

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
     On October 8, 2009, the Company was named in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. The case is styled Material Yard Workers Local 1175 Benefit Funds, et al. v. The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc., Case No. 4:09-cv-03265. The class period alleged in the complaint runs from March 7, 2007 to January 9, 2008. The primary allegations are that the Company issued false and misleading press releases regarding its guidance for fiscal year 2007 on various occasions during the alleged class period. The complaint seeks damages based on the decline in the Company’s stock price following the announcement of lowered guidance on October 10, 2007, November 28, 2007, and January 9, 2008. The case is in its early stages and discovery has not begun. The Company filed a motion to dismiss the complaint on April 12, 2010, and we are awaiting a decision from the Court. The Company believes the lawsuit is without merit and intends to mount a vigorous defense; we are unable to determine the likely outcome at this time.
     We are involved in various routine legal proceedings, including ongoing litigation, incidental to the conduct of our business. Management believes that none of these matters will have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

(2)   Comparable store sales data is calculated by excluding the net sales of a store for any month of one period if the store was not open throughout the same month of the prior period. Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores acquired in April 2007 are included in comparable store sales for the Men’s Wearhouse beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2008. Comparable store sales percentages for Moores are calculated using Canadian dollars.
 
(3)   Average square footage is calculated by dividing the total square footage for all stores open at the end of the period by the number of stores open at the end of such period.
 
(4)   Average net sales per square foot of selling space is calculated by dividing total selling square footage for all stores open the entire year into total sales for those stores. The calculation for Men’s Wearhouse includes Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores resulting from the acquisition of After Hours on April 9, 2007. The calculation for Moores is based upon the Canadian dollar. For 2006, the calculation excludes total sales for the 53rd week.

ITEM 7.   MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
General
     The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. is a specialty apparel retailer offering suits, suit separates, sport coats, pants, shoes, shirts, sportswear, outerwear and accessories for men and tuxedo rentals. We offer our products and services through multiple channels including The Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux, K&G, Moores Clothing for Men and on the internet at www.menswearhouse.com. Our stores are located throughout the United States and Canada and carry a wide selection of brand name and private label merchandise. In addition, we offer our customers a variety of services, including alterations and our loyalty program, and most of our K&G stores offer ladies’ career apparel, sportswear and accessories, including shoes.
     We also conduct corporate apparel and uniform operations through Twin Hill in the United States and, in the Houston, Texas area, conduct retail dry cleaning and laundry operations through MW Cleaners.
     On August 6, 2010, we acquired Dimensions Clothing Limited (“Dimensions”) and certain assets of Alexandra plc (“Alexandra”), two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the United Kingdom, to complement our corporate apparel operations. These operations offer their products through multiple channels including managed corporate accounts, catalogs and on the internet at www.dimensions.co.uk and www.alexandra.co.uk. The results of operations for Dimensions and Alexandra have been included in the consolidated financial statements since that date. The combined businesses are organized under a UK-based holding company, of which we control 86% and certain previous shareholders of Dimensions control 14%. We have the right to acquire the remaining outstanding shares of the UK-based holding company in the future on the terms set forth in the Investment, Shareholders’ and Stock Purchase Agreement. The acquisition-date cash consideration transferred for the Dimensions and Alexandra acquisitions was US$97.8 million (£61 million) and was funded through our cash on hand. Refer to Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for further details regarding the acquisitions.
     As a result of these acquisitions, in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, we revised our segment reporting to reflect two reportable segments, retail and corporate apparel, based on the way we manage, evaluate and internally report our business activities. Prior to these acquisitions our corporate apparel business did not have a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company and we reported our business as one operating segment. Prior period amounts reported as one operating segment have been revised to conform to our new segment reporting structure.
     The retail segment includes the results from our four retail merchandising brands: Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux, K&G and Moores. MW Cleaners is also aggregated in the retail segment as these operations have not had a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company.
     The corporate apparel segment includes the results from our corporate apparel and uniform operations conducted by Twin Hill in the United States and, beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, by Dimensions and Alexandra in the United Kingdom. Refer to Note 11 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information and disclosures regarding our reportable segments and the discussion included in “Results of Operations” below.
     Also in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, we changed the method of determining cost under the lower of cost or market inventory valuation method used for our K&G brand (representing approximately 23% of our inventory) from the retail inventory method to the average cost method. We recorded the cumulative effect of the change in accounting principle retrospectively as of February 1, 2009. The cumulative effect of this change in accounting principle as of February 1, 2009 was an increase in inventory of $2.2 million, a decrease in deferred tax assets of $0.9 million and a net increase in retained earnings of $1.3 million. The retrospective application of this accounting change impacted both segment and consolidated operating income, as well as consolidated net earnings, for all comparable periods presented by insignificant amounts. The change in accounting principle did not have any impact on our previously reported net cash flows, sales or comparable store sales. Refer to Note 14 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.

Overview
     We had revenues of $2,102.7 million and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $67.7 million in fiscal 2010, compared to revenues of $1,909.6 million and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $46.2 million in fiscal 2009 and revenues of $1,972.4 million and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $58.8 million in fiscal 2008. We increased our revenues by $193.1 million or 10.1% and our gross margin by $99.5 million or 12.5% for fiscal 2010. The acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010 contributed $104.8 million of the increased revenues and $29.5 million of the increased gross margin.
     We opened 10 stores in fiscal 2010, six stores in fiscal 2009 and 43 stores in fiscal 2008. In 2010, we closed four Men’s Wearhouse stores due to lease expiration and one due to substandard performance. We closed two K&G stores due to lease expiration and four due to substandard performance. We also closed 66 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores: seven due to substandard performance, 21 due to lease expiration and 38 due to consolidation of operations with other existing Men’s Wearhouse stores in the area. In 2009, we closed four Men’s Wearhouse stores due to lease expiration and one K&G store due to substandard performance. We also closed 36 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores: one due to substandard performance, nine due to lease expiration and 26 due to consolidation of operations with other existing Men’s Wearhouse stores in the area. In 2008, we closed two Men’s Wearhouse stores due to substandard performance. We also closed 20 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores: seven due to substandard performance, one due to lease expiration and 12 due to consolidation of operations with other existing Men’s Wearhouse stores in the area.
     While we believe conditions have become more stable and overall our businesses experienced improvement in both sales and profitability during fiscal 2010 as compared to the prior year, we expect general economic conditions to remain difficult in 2011. In response to these challenges, we plan to continue efforts to stimulate sales with discounts and other promotional events, to manage our inventory purchases, to maintain our cost control efforts and to manage our capital expenditures. We plan to open approximately 20 Men’s Wearhouse stores in fiscal 2011 and to expand and/or relocate approximately 20 existing Men’s Wearhouse stores, three existing K&G stores and two existing Moores stores. We plan to close three Men’s Wearhouse stores, three K&G stores and approximately 30 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores in fiscal 2011 as their lease terms expire or acceptable lease termination arrangements can be established. Based on our experience with previous economic downturns, we believe long-term fundamentals for the men’s specialty apparel industry remain strong and that current negative conditions will continue to stabilize over time.

2010 Compared with 2009
     The Company’s total net sales increased $193.1 million, or 10.1%, to $2,102.7 million for fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009. Total corporate apparel clothing sales increased $112.8 million due mainly to $104.8 million in sales from the Dimensions and Alexandra operations acquired on August 6, 2010. Total retail sales increased $80.3 million, or 4.2%, to $1,976.4 million due mainly to a $46.6 million increase in retail clothing product revenues and a $30.2 million increase in tuxedo rental service revenue, and is attributable to the following:
         
(in millions)     Amount attributed to
 
$ 55.1    
Increase in comparable sales.
  10.5    
Increase in e-commerce, alteration and other services sales.
  5.9    
Increase from net sales of stores opened in 2009, relocated stores and expanded stores not yet included in comparable sales.

Increase in net sales from 10 new stores opened in 2010.
  (16.1 )  
Decrease in net sales resulting from stores closed.
  18.3    
Increase in net sales resulting from change in U.S./Canadian dollar exchange rate.
 
$ 80.3    
Increase in total retail sales.
 
     Comparable store sales (which are calculated by excluding the net sales of a store for any month of one period if the store was not open throughout the same month of the prior period) increased 4.7% at Men’s Wearhouse/Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and 2.2% at Moores, and decreased 1.5% at K&G. The increase of 4.7% in comparable store sales at Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse and Tux was due mainly to higher store traffic levels and to continued paid unit growth in our tuxedo rental services business. The increase of 2.2% at Moores was due mainly increased units per transaction, which increased the average transaction value and to continued paid unit growth in our tuxedo rental services business. At K&G, the decrease of 1.5% in comparable store sales was due mainly to a decrease in store traffic levels. Tuxedo rental service revenues as a percentage of total retail sales increased from 17.6% in fiscal 2009 to 18.4% in 2010. In absolute dollars, tuxedo rental service revenues increased $30.2 million or 9.0% due mainly to a 10.5% increase in paid units rented, offset partially by lower average rental rates in the U.S. Exchange rate changes from a stronger Canadian dollar also caused total retail sales for fiscal 2010 to be $18.3 million more than the comparable prior year sales.

     Buying and distribution costs are included in determining our retail and corporate apparel clothing product gross margins. Our gross margin may not be comparable to other specialty retailers, as some companies exclude costs related to their distribution network from cost of goods sold while others, like us, include all or a portion of such costs in cost of goods sold and exclude them from selling, general and administrative expenses.
     Total gross margin increased $99.5 million or 12.5% from fiscal 2009 to $898.4 million in fiscal 2010. As a percentage of total net sales, total gross margin increased from 41.8% in fiscal 2009 to 42.7% in fiscal 2010. In the retail segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales increased from 42.0% in fiscal 2009 to 43.7% in fiscal 2010 primarily due to improved tuxedo rental margins and a decrease in occupancy cost. Retail clothing product gross margin decreased from 54.1% in fiscal 2009 to 53.9% in fiscal 2010 due primarily to increased promotional activity in fiscal 2010. The tuxedo rental services gross margin increased from 82.8% in fiscal 2009 to 84.6% in fiscal 2010 due

Table of Contents

primarily to a decrease in per unit rental costs in 2010. The gross margin for alteration and other services decreased from 26.2% in fiscal 2009 to 25.4% in fiscal 2010 mainly as a result of increased payroll related costs in fiscal 2010. Occupancy cost, which is relatively constant on a per store basis and includes store related rent, common area maintenance, utilities, repairs and maintenance, security, property taxes and depreciation, decreased from 15.3% in fiscal 2009 to 14.0% in fiscal 2010. On an absolute dollar basis, occupancy cost decreased by $13.0 million or 4.5% from fiscal 2009 to fiscal 2010 primarily due to fewer open stores in 2010 and reduced depreciation following impairment charges taken in 2010 and the fourth quarter of 2009.
     In the corporate apparel segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales increased from 18.6% in fiscal 2009 to 27.5% in fiscal 2010 due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010.
     Non-cash asset impairment charges were $5.9 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to $19.5 million in fiscal 2009. As a percentage of total net sales, these expenses decreased from 1.0% in 2009 to 0.3% in 2010. The asset impairment charges in both years related primarily to Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores and K&G stores. Refer to Impairment of Long-Lived Assets as discussed in “Critical Accounting Polices and Estimates” below and Note 1 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for further details.
     Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased to $790.9 million in fiscal 2010 from $710.0 million in fiscal 2009, an increase of $80.9 million or 11.4%. As a percentage of total net sales, these expenses increased from 37.2% in fiscal 2009 to 37.6% in fiscal 2010. The components of this 0.4% net increase in SG&A expenses as a percentage of total net sales and the related absolute dollar changes were as follows:

Advertising expense remained flat as a percentage of total net sales in fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2010 at 4.3%. On an absolute dollar basis, advertising expense increased $9.5 million.
  (1.0 )  
Decrease in store salaries as a percentage of total net sales from 15.0% in fiscal 2009 to 14.0% in fiscal 2010. Store salaries on an absolute dollar basis increased $8.3 million primarily due to increased commissions associated with increased sales.
  1.4    
Increase in other SG&A expenses as a percentage of total net sales from 17.9% in fiscal 2009 to 19.3% in fiscal 2010. On an absolute dollar basis, other SG&A expenses increased $63.1 million primarily due to expenses related to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010, increased payroll related costs, costs incurred for ceased tuxedo rental distribution operations (refer to Note 12 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements) and the absence in 2010 of a cumulative adjustment of $3.1 million recognized in the second quarter of 2009 for gift card breakage income.
       
  0.4 %  
Total
     In the retail segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales increased slightly from 37.1% in fiscal 2009 to 37.9% in fiscal 2010 primarily due to increased payroll related costs, costs incurred for ceased tuxedo rental distribution operations and the absence in 2010 of a cumulative adjustment of $3.1 million recognized in the second quarter of 2009 for gift card breakage income.
     In the corporate apparel segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales decreased from 50.5% in fiscal 2009 to 32.8% in fiscal 2010 due primarily to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010. The corporate apparel segment operating loss of $6.7 million for fiscal 2010 resulted mainly from $6.4 million in acquisition costs related to these acquisitions.
     Interest expense increased from $1.2 million in fiscal 2009 to $1.5 million in fiscal 2010 while interest income decreased from $0.9 million in fiscal 2009 to $0.3 million in fiscal 2010. Weighted average borrowings outstanding decreased from $47.4 million in fiscal 2009 to $44.0 million in fiscal 2010, and the weighted average interest rate on outstanding indebtedness increased from 1.9% in fiscal 2009 to 2.1% in fiscal 2010. The decrease in the weighted average borrowings was due mainly to payments on our revolving credit facility of $25.0 million in the first quarter of 2009 and the repayment of our Canadian term loan in January 2011 of approximately US$46.7 million. The weighted average interest rate for fiscal 2010 increased mainly due to an increase in the effective interest rate for the outstanding Canadian term loan in fiscal 2010 compared to the prior year. As indicated above, the Canadian term loan was paid in full in January 2011. The decrease in interest income was primarily attributable to a shift in our investments and lower interest rates for fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009.

     Our effective income tax rate was 32.7% for fiscal 2010 and 33.1% for fiscal 2009. The effective tax rate for fiscal 2010 was lower than the statutory U.S. federal rate of 35% due to the favorable tax rate effects from net permanent book-to-tax adjustments, the release of valuation allowances on foreign tax credit carryforwards, the conclusion of certain income tax audits and recognition of previously unrecognized tax benefits from expirations of statute of limitations, partially offset by the effect of state income taxes. The effective tax rate for fiscal 2009 was lower than the statutory U.S. federal rate of 35% mainly due to the foreign exchange impact of distributed earnings from our Canadian operations, favorable conclusions of certain income tax audits and statute of limitation expirations during the year. Such favorable effects were partially offset by the effect of state income taxes and the establishment of valuation allowances. As of January 29, 2011, we had $5.6 million in unrecognized tax benefits, of which $4.2 million, if recognized, would reduce our income tax expense and effective tax rate. It is reasonably possible that there could be a reduction in the balance of unrecognized tax benefits of up to $1.0 million in the next twelve months.
     Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest was $19 thousand for fiscal 2010 due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010. The Company controls 86% of the UK-based operations.
     These factors resulted in net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $67.7 million or 3.2% of total net sales for fiscal 2010, an increase of $21.5 million or 46.5% over net earnings of $46.2 million or 2.4% of total net sales for fiscal 2009.
2009 Compared with 2008
     The Company’s total net sales decreased $62.8 million, or 3.2%, to $1,909.6 million for fiscal 2009 as compared to fiscal 2008. Total retail sales decreased $54.8 million due mainly to a $60.3 million decrease in retail clothing product revenues, offset by a $4.1 million increase in tuxedo rental services and a $1.9 million increase in alteration services, and is attributable to the following:
         
(in millions)     Amount Attributed to

     Our comparable store sales decreased 4.0% at Men’s Wearhouse as increases in units per transaction, driven by our promotional activities, were more than offset by lower store traffic levels and higher markdowns. At Moores, comparable store sales decreased 0.9% as increases in units per transaction, driven by our promotional activities, and a higher average transaction value were more than offset by lower store traffic levels. At K&G, comparable store sales decreased 1.9% primarily due to decreases in units per transaction and higher markdowns. The continuation of negative macroeconomic conditions, including high unemployment, particularly affected sales of men’s apparel as buying patterns for men are considered to be more discretionary than those in other apparel areas. The lower retail clothing product sales were partially offset by increased revenues from our tuxedo rental services due mainly to higher average rental rates. As a percentage of total retail sales, tuxedo rental service revenues increased from 16.9% in 2008 to 17.6% in 2009. Exchange rate changes from a weaker Canadian dollar also caused total retail sales for fiscal 2009 to be $7.1 million less than the comparable prior year sales.
     Total corporate apparel clothing product sales decreased $8.0 million to $13.5 million in fiscal 2009 due mainly to reduced orders from several major corporate apparel customers.

     In the retail segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales decreased from 43.3% in fiscal 2008 to 42.0% in fiscal 2009 due mainly to a decline in the retail clothing product gross margin from 56.0% in fiscal 2008 to 54.1% in fiscal 2009 related to higher markdowns from increased promotional activities at our Men’s Wearhouse and Moores stores. The tuxedo rental services gross margin increased slightly from 82.0% in fiscal 2008 to 82.8% in fiscal 2009 due mainly to the absence in 2009 of costs incurred in the first quarter of 2008 associated with realignment of our tuxedo rental product inventory. The gross margin for alteration and other services increased from 24.1% in fiscal 2008 to 26.2% in fiscal 2009 mainly as a result of reduced alteration costs combined with increased alteration sales associated with the increased unit sales from our promotional events. Occupancy cost, which is relatively constant on a per store basis and includes store related rent, common area maintenance, utilities, repairs and maintenance, security, property taxes and depreciation, increased from 15.0% of total retail sales in fiscal 2008 to 15.3% in fiscal 2009 but, on an absolute dollar basis, decreased by 1.3%.
     In the corporate apparel segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales decreased from 31.0% in fiscal 2008 to 18.6% in fiscal 2009 due mainly to the impact of fixed buying and procurement costs.

Increase in store salaries as a percentage of total net sales from 14.9% in 2008 to 15.0% in 2009. Store salaries on an absolute dollar basis decreased $7.8 million primarily due to decreased commissions and store personnel due to decreased sales and fewer stores in 2009.

Decrease in other SG&A expenses as a percentage of total net sales from 19.5% in 2008 to 17.9% in 2009. On an absolute dollar basis, other SG&A expenses decreased $44.2 million primarily due to cost control efforts initiated in the fourth quarter of 2008 and the 2009 recognition of $5.0 million in other operating income from gift card breakage. During the second quarter of 2009, we entered into an agreement with an unrelated third party who assumed our liability for unredeemed gift cards that had not yet reached their statutory escheatment term. As a result of this agreement, we are no longer subject to certain third party claims for unredeemed gift cards, which allows us to recognize other income from breakage of gift cards when the likelihood of redemption of the gift cards is remote (refer to Note 1 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements).

     In the retail segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales decreased from 38.6% in fiscal 2008 to 37.1% in fiscal 2009 for the reasons discussed above In the corporate apparel segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales increased from 24.8% in fiscal 2008 to 50.5% in fiscal 2009 due primarily to fixed buying and procurement costs higher as a percentage of reduced sales volume.
     Interest expense decreased from $4.3 million in fiscal 2008 to $1.2 million in fiscal 2009 while interest income decreased from $2.6 million in fiscal 2008 to $0.9 million in fiscal 2009. Weighted average borrowings outstanding decreased from $91.1 million in 2008 to $47.4 million in 2009, and the weighted average interest rate on outstanding indebtedness decreased from 4.3% to 1.9%. The decrease in the weighted average borrowings was due mainly to the voluntary repayment of a portion of our Canadian term loan in October 2008 of approximately US$31.9 million and payments on our revolving credit facility of $25.0 million during the first quarter of 2009. The weighted average interest rate for fiscal 2009 decreased mainly due to a decrease in the effective interest rate for the Canadian term loan from 1.9% at January 31, 2009 to 1.1% at January 30, 2010. The decrease in interest income was primarily attributable to lower interest rates for fiscal 2009 as compared to fiscal 2008.
     Our effective income tax rate was 33.1% for 2009 and 33.7% for fiscal 2008. The effective tax rate for fiscal 2009 was lower than the statutory U.S. federal rate of 35% primarily due to the foreign exchange impact of distributed earnings from our Canadian operations, favorable conclusions of certain income tax audits and statute of limitation expirations during the year, offset partially by the unfavorable effect of state income taxes and establishment of a valuation allowance related to potential limited utilization of foreign tax credits. The effective income tax rate in 2008 was lower than the statutory U.S. federal rate of 35% mainly because favorable conclusions of certain income tax audits and statute of limitation expirations during the year more than offset the effect of state income taxes. As of January 30, 2010, we had $7.1 million in unrecognized tax benefits, of which $4.8 million, if recognized, would reduce our income tax expense and effective tax rate. It is reasonably possible that there could be a net reduction in the balance of unrecognized tax benefits of up to $1.0 million in the next twelve months.

     These factors resulted in 2009 net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $46.2 million or 2.4% of total net sales, compared with 2008 net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $58.8 million or 3.0% of total net sales.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
     At January 29, 2011 and January 30, 2010, cash and cash equivalents totaled $136.4 million and $186.0 million, respectively. We had working capital of $497.4 million and $486.3 million at January 29, 2011 and January 30, 2010, respectively. We held no short-term investments at January 29, 2011 or January 30, 2010. Our primary sources of working capital are cash flows from operations and borrowings under our Credit Agreement. Historically, our working capital has been at its lowest level in January and February, and has increased through November as inventory buildup occurs in preparation for the fourth quarter selling season. The $11.1 million increase in working capital at January 29, 2011 compared to January 30, 2010 resulted primarily from increases in accounts receivable and inventories, which more than offset the increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses and other current liabilities.
     On August 6, 2010, we acquired Dimensions and certain assets of Alexandra, two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the United Kingdom, to complement our corporate apparel operations. The operating results of Dimensions and Alexandra have been included in the consolidated financial statements since that date. The combined businesses are organized under a UK-based holding company, of which the Company controls 86% and certain previous shareholders of Dimensions control 14%. The Company has the right to acquire the remaining outstanding shares of the UK-based holding company in the future on the terms set forth in the Investment, Shareholders’ and Stock Purchase Agreement. The acquisition-date cash consideration transferred for the Dimensions and Alexandra acquisitions was $79.8 million and $18.0 million, respectively, totaling $97.8 million (£61 million), and was funded through the Company’s cash on hand.
Credit Facilities
     On January 26, 2011, we entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with a group of banks to amend and restate our existing credit facility, which provided the Company with a revolving credit facility that was scheduled to mature on February 11, 2012, as well as a term loan to our Canadian subsidiaries, which was scheduled to mature on February 10, 2011. The term loan outstanding balance of US$46.7 million was paid in full during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.
     The Credit Agreement provides for a total senior revolving credit facility of $200.0 million, with increases to $300.0 million upon additional lender commitments, that matures on January 26, 2016. The Credit Agreement is secured by the stock of certain of our subsidiaries. The Credit Agreement has several borrowing and interest rate options including the following indices: (i) adjusted LIBO rate, (ii) adjusted EURIBO rate, (iii) CDO rate, (iv) Canadian prime rate or (v) an alternate base rate (equal to the greater of the prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.5% or the adjusted LIBO rate for a one month period plus 1.0%). Advances under the Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate per annum using the applicable indices plus a varying interest rate margin up to 2.75%. The Credit Agreement also provides for fees applicable to amounts available to be drawn under outstanding letters of credit which range from 2.00% to 2.75%, and a fee on unused commitments which ranges from 0.35% to 0.50%. As of January 29, 2011, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Agreement.
     The Credit Agreement contains certain restrictive and financial covenants, including the requirement to maintain certain financial ratios. The restrictive provisions in the Credit Agreement reflect an overall covenant structure that is generally representative of a commercial loan made to an investment-grade company. Our debt, however, is not rated and we have not sought, and are not seeking, a rating of our debt. We were in compliance with the covenants in the Credit Agreement as of January 29, 2011.
     We utilize letters of credit primarily to secure inventory purchases and as collateral for workers compensation claims. At January 29, 2011, letters of credit totaling approximately $25.2 million were issued and outstanding. Borrowings available under our Credit Agreement at January 29, 2011 were $174.8 million.

     Cash flow activities
     Operating activities — Our primary source of operating cash flow is from sales to our customers. Our primary uses of cash include clothing product inventory and tuxedo rental product purchases, personnel related expenses, occupancy costs, advertising costs and income tax payments. Our operating activities provided net cash of $169.9 million in 2010 due mainly to net earnings, adjusted for non-cash charges and a decrease in inventories and increases in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities, offset in part by increases in accounts receivable and tuxedo rental product and a decrease in income taxes payable. Our operating activities provided net cash of $163.2 million in 2009, due mainly to net earnings, adjusted for non-cash charges, and decreases in inventories and other assets and an increase in income taxes payable, offset in part by an increase in tuxedo rental product and decreases in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities. Our operating activities provided net cash of $129.5 million in 2008, due mainly to net earnings, adjusted for non-cash charges, and a decrease in inventories, offset in part by an increase in tuxedo rental product and decreases in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities and income taxes payable. The increase in accounts receivable during fiscal 2010 was due primarily to a build of customer balances at our UK corporate apparel operations acquired in the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Inventories decreased in 2009 and 2008 as purchases were reduced in line with decreased clothing sales in 2009 and 2008. Inventories also decreased in 2010 as we continued efforts to align inventory purchases with sales expectations and a decrease in our retail store count. Tuxedo rental product increased in each of the years to support the continued growth in our tuxedo rental business, to replenish and replace product and, in 2008, to rationalize the acquired After Hours tuxedo rental product offerings. The increases in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities in 2010 was primarily due to the timing of vendor payments, increased advertising costs and an increase in annual bonuses due to increased sales in 2010, while the decrease in income taxes payable was due to the timing of required tax payments. The decreases in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities in 2009 and 2008 relate mainly to the timing of vendor payments and reduced purchases associated with decreased clothing sales. The decrease in other assets in 2009 was mainly due to tax refunds received, while the increase in income taxes payable was due to the timing and amounts of required tax payments. In 2008, income taxes payable decreased because actual earnings were lower than amounts used to estimate required tax payments.
     Investing activities — Our cash outflows from investing activities are primarily for capital expenditures, purchases of short-term investments and, in 2010, acquisitions of businesses, while cash inflows are primarily the result of proceeds from sales of short-term investments. Our investing activities used net cash of $156.6 million, $36.7 million and $35.0 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. We made capital expenditures of $58.9 million, $56.9 million and $88.2 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. In 2010, we used net cash of $97.8 million for the acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010. In 2008, we had proceeds of $9.6 million from the sale of certain distribution facility assets acquired by the State of California through eminent domain. Additionally, in 2009 and 2008, we had net proceeds from short-term investments of $19.4 million and $42.8 million, respectively.
     Our capital expenditures relate mainly to costs incurred for stores opened, remodeled or relocated during the year or under construction at the end of the year, distribution facility additions and infrastructure technology investments as detailed below (in millions):

     Financing activities — Our cash outflows from financing activities consist primarily of cash dividend payments and debt payments, while cash inflows from financing activities consist primarily of proceeds from our revolving credit facility and the issuance of common stock. In 2010, our financing activities used net cash of $65.3 million, due mainly to the payment of cash dividends and payments on our Canadian term loan, offset partially by proceeds from the issuance of common stock. In 2009, our financing activities used net cash of $36.9 million, due mainly to the payment of cash dividends and payments on our revolving credit facility, offset partially by proceeds from the issuance of common stock. In 2008, our financing activities used net cash of $25.4 million, due mainly to the payment of cash dividends and payments on our Canadian term loan and our revolving credit facility, offset by proceeds from our revolving credit facility and the issuance of common stock.
     Share repurchase program — In January 2006, the Board of Directors authorized a $100.0 million share repurchase program of our common stock, which superseded any remaining previous authorizations. In August 2007, the Board of Directors approved a replenishment of the share repurchase program to $100.0 million by authorizing $90.3 million to be added to the remaining $9.7 million of the then current program. In January 2011, the Board of Directors approved a $150.0 million share repurchase program of our common stock, which amends and increases the existing share repurchase authorization. This authorization superceded any remaining previous authorizations.
     No shares were repurchased under the August 2007 authorization during fiscal 2009 or 2008. No shares were repurchased under the August 2007 or the January 2011 authorization during fiscal 2010. At January 29, 2011, the remaining balance available under the January 2011 authorization was $150.0 million. Subsequent to January 29, 2011 and through March 30, 2011, we have purchased 1,703.4 thousand shares for $45.6 million at an average price per share of $26.77 under the January 2011 authorization.
     The following table summarizes our share repurchases over the last three fiscal years, all of which were private transactions to satisfy tax withholding obligations arising upon the vesting of certain restricted stock:

  $ 0.1     $ 0.1     $ 0.2  
Average price per share
  $ 20.24     $ 12.29     $ 23.13  
     Dividends — Cash dividends paid were approximately $19.1 million, $14.7 million and $14.6 million during fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. In fiscal 2010, a dividend of $0.09 per share was declared in the first, second and third quarters and a dividend of $0.12 per share was declared in the fourth quarter, for an annual dividend of $0.39 per share. In fiscal 2009, a dividend of $0.07 per share was declared in the first, second and third quarters and a dividend of $0.09 per share was declared in the fourth quarter, for an annual dividend of $0.30 per share. A dividend of $0.07 per share was declared in each quarter of fiscal 2008, for an annual dividend of $0.28 per share. The cash dividend of $0.12 per share declared by our Board of Directors in January 2011 is payable on March 25, 2011 to shareholders of record on March 15, 2011. The dividend payout is approximately $6.4 million and is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet as of January 29, 2011.
Futures sources and uses of cash
     Our primary uses of cash are to finance working capital requirements of our operations. In addition, we will use cash to fund capital expenditures, income tax and dividend payments, operating leases and various other obligations, including the commitments discussed in the “Contractual Obligations” table below, as they arise.
     Capital expenditures are anticipated to be in the range of $90.0 to $100.0 million for 2011. This amount includes the anticipated costs of opening approximately 20 new Men’s Wearhouse stores in 2011 at an expected average cost per store of approximately $0.4 million (excluding telecommunications and point-of-sale equipment and inventory). The balance of the capital expenditures for 2011 will be used for telecommunications, point-of-sale and other computer equipment and systems, store relocations, remodeling and expansion, distribution facilities and investment in our corporate uniform program. The Company anticipates that each of the new Men’s Wearhouse stores will require, on average, an initial inventory costing approximately $0.3 million (subject to the seasonal patterns that affect inventory at all stores). These inventory purchases will be funded by cash from operations, trade credit and, if necessary, borrowings under our Credit Agreement. The actual amount of future capital expenditures and inventory purchases will depend in part on the number of new stores opened and the terms on which new stores are leased, as well as on industry trends consistent with our anticipated operating plans. Additionally, market

conditions may produce attractive opportunities for us to make acquisitions larger than our past acquisitions. Any such acquisitions may be undertaken as an alternative to opening new stores. We may use cash on hand, together with cash flow from operations, borrowings under our Credit Agreement and issuances of debt or equity securities, to take advantage of any significant acquisition opportunities.
     Current domestic and global economic conditions, including high unemployment levels, reduced public sector spending and constrained credit markets, could negatively affect our future operating results as well as our existing cash and cash equivalents balances. In addition, conditions in the financial markets could limit our access to additional capital resources, if needed, and could increase associated costs. We believe based on our current business plan that our existing cash and cash flows from operations will be sufficient to fund our planned store openings, relocations and remodelings, other capital expenditures and operating cash requirements, including integration costs and other requirements related to our August 6, 2010 UK-based acquisitions, and that we will be able to maintain compliance with the covenants in our Credit Agreement for at least the next 12 months. Borrowings available under our Credit Agreement were $174.8 million as of January 29, 2011.
     We are exposed to market risk associated with foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations as a result of our direct sourcing programs and our operations in foreign countries. In connection with our direct sourcing programs, we may enter into merchandise purchase commitments that are denominated in a currency different from the functional currency of the operating entity. Our risk management policy is to hedge a significant portion of forecasted merchandise purchases for our direct sourcing programs that bear foreign exchange risk using foreign exchange forward contracts. As these foreign exchange forward contracts are with three financial institutions, we are exposed to credit risk in the event of nonperformance by these parties. However, due to the creditworthiness of these major financial institutions, full performance is anticipated.

Contractual Obligations
     As of January 29, 2011, the Company is obligated to make cash payments in connection with its noncancelable capital and operating leases and other contractual obligations in the amounts listed below. In addition, we utilize letters of credit primarily for inventory purchases and as collateral for workers compensation claims. At January 29, 2011, letters of credit totaling approximately $25.2 million were issued and outstanding.

(a)   We lease retail business locations, office and warehouse facilities, copier equipment and automotive equipment under various noncancelable capital and operating leases. Leases on retail business locations specify minimum base rentals plus common area maintenance charges and possible additional rentals based upon percentages of sales. Most of the retail business location leases provide for renewal options at rates specified in the leases. Our future lease obligations would change if we exercised these renewal options and if we entered into additional lease agreements. See Note 13 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.
 
(b)   Other contractual obligations consist primarily of payments required under our marketing agreement with David’s Bridal, Inc.
 
(c)   Excluded from the table above is $7.0 million, which includes $1.4 million in interest, related to uncertain tax positions. These amounts are not included due to our inability to predict the timing of the settlement of these amounts. Refer to Note 5 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.
 
(d)   In February 2011, we entered into a US$1.7 million contractual obligation for the refurbishment of the primary offices for Alexandra located in Bristol, UK. This obligation, which is excluded from the table above, will be paid in fiscal 2011.
     In the normal course of business, we issue purchase orders to vendors/suppliers for merchandise. The purchase orders represent executory contracts requiring performance by the vendors/suppliers, including the delivery of the merchandise prior to a specified cancellation date and compliance with product specifications, quality standards and other requirements. In the event of the vendor’s failure to meet the agreed upon terms and conditions, we may cancel the order.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
     Other than the noncancelable operating leases, other contractual obligations and letters of credit discussed above, the Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that are material to its financial position or results of operations.

Inflation
     The Company believes the impact of inflation on the results of operations during the periods presented has been minimal. However, there can be no assurance that the Company’s business will not be affected by inflation in the future.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
     The preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires the appropriate application of accounting policies in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. In many instances, this also requires management to make estimates and assumptions about future events that affect the amounts and disclosures included in our financial statements. We base our estimates on historical experience and various assumptions that we believe are reasonable under our current business model. However, because future events and conditions and their effects cannot be determined with certainty, actual results will differ from our estimates and such differences could be material to our financial statements.
     Our accounting policies are described in Note 1 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. We consistently apply these policies and periodically evaluate the reasonableness of our estimates in light of actual events. Historically, we have found our accounting policies to be appropriate and our estimates and assumptions reasonable. Our critical accounting policies, which are those most significant to the presentation of our financial position and results of operations and those that require significant judgment or complex estimates by management, are discussed below.
     Revenue Recognition — Clothing product revenue is recognized at the time of sale and delivery of merchandise, net of actual sales returns and a provision for estimated sales returns, and excludes sales taxes. Revenues from tuxedo rental, alteration and other services are recognized upon completion of the services.
     We present all non-income government-assessed taxes (sales, use and value added taxes) collected from our customers and remitted to governmental agencies on a net basis (excluded from net sales) in our consolidated financial statements. The government-assessed taxes are recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities until they are remitted to the government agency.
     Inventories — Our inventory is carried at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined based on the average cost method. Our inventory cost also includes estimated buying and distribution costs (warehousing, freight, hangers and merchandising costs) associated with the inventory, with the balance of such costs included in cost of sales. We make assumptions, based primarily on historical experience, as to items in our inventory that may be damaged, obsolete or salable only at marked down prices and reduce the cost of inventory to reflect the market value of these items. If actual damages, obsolescence or market demand is significantly different from our estimates, additional inventory write-downs could be required. In addition, buying and distribution costs are allocated to inventory based on the ratio of annual product purchases to inventory cost. If this ratio were to change significantly, it could materially affect the amount of buying and distribution costs included in cost of sales.
     In the third quarter of fiscal 2010, we changed the method of determining cost under the lower of cost or market inventory valuation method used for our K&G brand (representing approximately 23% of our inventory) from the retail inventory method to the average cost method. We recorded the cumulative effect of the change in accounting principle retrospectively as of February 1, 2009. The cumulative effect of this change in accounting principle as of February 1, 2009 was an increase in inventory of $2.2 million, a decrease in deferred tax assets of $0.9 million and a net increase in retained earnings of $1.3 million. The retrospective application of this accounting change impacted both segment and consolidated operating income, as well as consolidated net earnings, for all comparable periods presented by insignificant amounts. The change in accounting principle did not have any impact on our previously reported net cash flows, sales or comparable store sales. Refer to Note 14 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.
     Impairment of Long-Lived Assets — Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment and identifiable intangibles with finite useful lives, are periodically evaluated for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Assets are grouped and evaluated for impairment at the lowest level of which there are identifiable cash flows, which is generally at a store level. Assets are reviewed using factors including, but not limited to, the Company’s future operating plans and projected cash flows. The determination of whether impairment has occurred is based on an estimate of undiscounted future cash flows directly related to

36


Table of Contents

the assets, compared to the carrying value of the assets. If the sum of the undiscounted future cash flows of the assets does not exceed the carrying value of the assets, full or partial impairment may exist. If the asset carrying amount exceeds its fair value, an impairment charge is recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the asset. Fair value is determined using an income approach, which requires discounting the estimated future cash flows associated with the asset. Estimating future cash flows requires management to make assumptions and to apply judgment, including forecasting future sales, costs and useful lives of assets. Significant judgment is also involved in selecting the appropriate discount rate to be applied in determining the estimated fair value of an asset. Changes to our key assumptions related to future performance, market conditions and other economic factors can significantly affect our impairment evaluation. For example, unanticipated adverse market conditions can cause individual stores to become unprofitable and can result in an impairment charge for the property and equipment assets in those stores.
     During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, we recognized pretax non-cash asset impairment charges of $1.8 million related mainly to store assets for two K&G stores still in operation. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, we recognized pretax non-cash asset impairment charges of $19.5 million related to store assets for 145 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores and 12 K&G stores. During fiscal 2010, we recognized pretax non-cash asset impairment charges of $5.9 million related to store assets for 49 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores, four K&G stores and three Men’s Wearhouse stores.
     The pretax asset impairment charges for the K&G stores of $1.8 million in 2008, $5.1 million in 2009 and $1.9 million in 2010 are the result primarily of sales declines that started in 2007 and continued through fiscal 2010 caused mainly by the downturn experienced by the U.S. economy.
     The pretax asset impairment charges related to the store assets for the Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores were $14.4 million in fiscal 2009 and $3.6 million in fiscal 2010. Most of our stand-alone tuxedo rental stores were acquired in April 2007 or opened subsequently and operated as MW Tux from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 until the first quarter of fiscal 2009 when they were renamed Men’s Wearhouse and Tux. These rental stores offer a full selection of tuxedo rental product as well as an expanded selection of retail merchandise, including dress and casual apparel targeted towards a younger customer, which was introduced during the first quarter of fiscal 2009. It was anticipated that expanding the retail merchandise at the rental stores and renaming them to Men’s Wearhouse and Tux would diminish or possibly reverse a consumer driven shifting of rental revenues that was occurring from the rental stores to our Men’s Wearhouse stores located in close proximity (one mile or less). Although the expanded merchandise offering contributed to a significant increase in retail clothing sales by the rental stores in fiscal 2009 and 2010, the shifting of tuxedo rental revenues from the rental stores to nearby Men’s Wearhouse stores continued to occur. In total, tuxedo rental revenues for fiscal 2010 were $364.3 million compared to $334.1 million in 2009 and $330.0 million in fiscal 2008; however, $14.4 million and $3.6 million of store assets in fiscal 2009 and 2010, respectively, for the stand-alone Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores were impaired due mainly to the shifting of rental revenues.
     In fiscal 2010, we also recognized pretax asset impairment charges of $0.4 million for three Men’s Wearhouse stores, two which are still in operation.
     Changes to our key assumptions related to future performance, market conditions and other economic factors could result in future impairment charges for stores or other long-lived assets where the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable.
     Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets — Goodwill and other intangible assets are initially recorded at their fair values. Trademarks, tradenames, customer relationships and other identifiable intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized to expense over their estimated useful lives of 3 to 20 years using the straight-line method and are periodically evaluated for impairment as discussed in the “Impairment of Long-Lived Assets” section above. Identifiable intangible assets with an indefinite useful life, including goodwill, are not amortized but are evaluated annually as of our fiscal year end for impairment. A more frequent evaluation is performed if events or circumstances indicate that impairment could have occurred. Such events or circumstances could include, but are not limited to, significant negative industry or economic trends, unanticipated changes in the competitive environment, decisions to significantly modify or dispose of operations and a significant sustained decline in the market price of our stock.
     Goodwill represents the excess cost of businesses acquired over the fair value of the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed in prior business combinations. Goodwill totaled $88.0 million at January 29, 2011, of which $27.0 million related to our acquisition of Dimensions on August 6, 2010. Refer to Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. For purposes of our impairment evaluation, the reporting units are our operating brands identified in Note 11 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. Goodwill has been assigned to the reporting units based on prior business combinations related to the brands. The goodwill impairment evaluation is performed in

37


Table of Contents

two steps. The first step is intended to determine if potential impairment exists and is performed by comparing each reporting unit’s fair value to its carrying value, including goodwill. If the carrying value of a reporting unit exceeds its estimated fair value, goodwill is considered potentially impaired, and we must complete the second step of the testing to determine the amount of any impairment. The second step requires an allocation of the reporting unit’s first step estimated fair value to the individual assets and liabilities of the reporting unit in the same manner as if the reporting unit was being acquired in a business combination. Any excess of the estimated fair value over the amounts allocated to the individual assets and liabilities represents the implied fair value of goodwill for the reporting unit. If the implied fair value of goodwill is less than the recorded goodwill, we would recognize an impairment charge for the difference.
     In our step one process, we estimate the fair value of our reporting units using a combined income and market comparable approach. Our income approach uses projected future cash flows that are discounted using a weighted-average cost of capital analysis that reflects current market conditions. The market comparable approach primarily considers market price multiples of comparable companies and applies those price multiples to certain key drivers of the reporting unit. We engage an independent valuation firm to assist us in estimating the fair value of our reporting units.
     Management judgment is a significant factor in the goodwill impairment evaluation process. The computations require management to make estimates and assumptions. Critical assumptions that are used as part of these evaluations include:
    The potential future cash flows of the reporting unit. The income approach relies on the timing and estimates of future cash flows. The projections use management’s estimates of economic and market conditions over the projected period, including growth rates in revenue, gross margin and expense. The cash flows are based on the Company’s most recent business operating plans and various growth rates have been assumed for years beyond the current business plan period. We believe that the assumptions and rates used in our 2010 impairment evaluation are reasonable; however, variations in the assumptions and rates could result in significantly different estimates of fair value.
 
    Selection of an appropriate discount rate. The income approach requires the selection of an appropriate discount rate, which is based on a weighted average cost of capital analysis. The discount rate is affected by changes in short-term interest rates and long-term yield as well as variances in the typical capital structure of marketplace participants. Given current economic conditions, it is possible that the discount rate will fluctuate in the near term. The weighted average cost of capital used to discount the cash flows for our reporting units ranged from 12.0% to 14.0% for the 2010 analysis.
 
    Selection of comparable companies within the industry. For purposes of the market comparable approach, valuations were determined by calculating average price multiples of relevant key drivers from a group of companies that are comparable to the reporting units being analyzed and applying those price multiples to the key drivers of the reporting unit. While the market price multiple is not an assumption, a presumption that it provides an indicator of the value of the reporting unit is inherent in the valuation. The determination of the market comparable also involves a degree of judgment. Earnings multiples of 6.0 to 7.3 were used for the 2010 analysis for our operating brands including Men’s Wearhouse, K&G, Moores and MW Cleaners.
     As discussed above, the fair values of reporting units in 2010 were determined using a combined income and market comparable approach. We believe these two approaches are appropriate valuation techniques and we generally weight the two values equally as an estimate of reporting unit fair value for the purposes of our impairment testing. However, we may weigh one value more heavily than the other when conditions merit doing so. The fair value derived from the weighting of these two methods provided appropriate valuations that, in aggregate, reasonably reconciled to our market capitalization, taking into account observable control premiums. Therefore, we used the valuations in evaluating goodwill for possible impairment and determined that none of our goodwill was impaired.
     The goodwill impairment evaluation process requires management to make estimates and assumptions with regard to the fair value of the reporting units. Actual values may differ significantly from these judgments, particularly if there are significant adverse changes in the operating environment for our reporting units. Sustained declines in the Company’s market capitalization could also increase the risk of goodwill impairment. Such occurrences could result in future goodwill impairment charges that would, in turn, negatively impact the Company’s results of operations; however, any such goodwill impairments would be non-cash charges that would not affect our cash flows or compliance with our current debt covenants.
     No goodwill impairment was identified in fiscal 2010, 2009 or 2008.

     Tuxedo Rental Product — The cost of our tuxedo rental product is amortized to cost of sales based on the cost of each unit rented, which is estimated based on the number of times the unit is expected to be rented and the average cost of the rental product. Lost, damaged and retired rental product is also charged to cost of sales. Tuxedo rental product is amortized to expense generally over a two to three year period. We make assumptions, based primarily on historical experience and information obtained from tuxedo rental industry sources, as to the number of times each unit can be rented. If the actual number of times a unit can be rented were to vary significantly from our estimates, it could materially affect the amount of tuxedo rental product amortization included in cost of sales.
     Self-Insurance — We self-insure significant portions of our workers’ compensation and employee medical costs. We estimate our liability for future payments under these programs based on historical experience and various assumptions as to participating employees, health care costs, number of claims and other factors, including industry trends and information provided to us by our insurance broker. We also use actuarial estimates. If the number of claims or the costs associated with those claims were to increase significantly over our estimates, additional charges to earnings could be necessary to cover required payments.
     Income Taxes — Income taxes are accounted for using the asset and liability method. Deferred tax liabilities or assets are established for temporary differences between financial and tax reporting bases and are subsequently adjusted to reflect changes in enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences reverse. The deferred tax assets are reduced, if necessary, by a valuation allowance to the extent future realization of those tax benefits is uncertain.
     Significant judgment is required in determining the provision for income taxes and the related taxes payable and deferred tax assets and liabilities since, in the ordinary course of business, there are transactions and calculations where the ultimate tax outcome is uncertain. Additionally, our tax returns are subject to audit by various domestic and foreign tax authorities that could result in material adjustments or differing interpretations of the tax laws. Although we believe that our estimates are reasonable and are based on the best available information at the time we prepare the provision, actual results could differ from these estimates resulting in a final tax outcome that may be materially different from that which is reflected in our consolidated financial statements.
     The tax benefit from an uncertain tax position is recognized only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the consolidated financial statements from such positions are then measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon settlement. Interest and/or penalties related to uncertain tax positions are recognized in income tax expense. Significant judgment is required in determining our uncertain tax positions. We have established accruals for uncertain tax positions using our best judgment and adjust these accruals, as warranted, due to changing facts and circumstances. A change in our uncertain tax positions, in any given period, could have a significant impact on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for that period.
     Operating Leases — Our operating leases primarily relate to stores and generally contain rent escalation clauses, rent holidays, contingent rent provisions and occasionally leasehold incentives. We recognize rent expense for operating leases on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, which is generally five to ten years based on the initial lease term plus first renewal option periods that are reasonably assured. Rent expense for stores is included in cost of sales as a part of occupancy cost and other rent is included in selling, general and administrative expenses. The lease terms commence when we take possession with the right to control use of the leased premises and, for stores, is generally 60 days prior to the date rent payments begin. Rental costs associated with ground or building operating leases that are incurred during a construction period are recognized as rental expense. Deferred rent that results from recognition of rent on a straight-line basis is included in other liabilities. Landlord incentives received for reimbursement of leasehold improvements are recorded as deferred rent and amortized as a reduction to rent expense over the term of the lease. Contingent rentals are generally based on percentages of sales and are recognized as store rent expense as they accrue.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
     In January 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued authoritative guidance that expands the required disclosures about fair value measurements. This guidance provides for new disclosures requiring the Company to (a) disclose separately the amounts of significant transfers in and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements and describe the reasons for the transfers and (b) present separately information about purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements. This guidance also provides clarification of existing disclosures requiring the Company to (i) determine each class of assets and liabilities based on the nature and risks of the investments rather than by major security type and (ii) for each class of assets and liabilities, disclose the valuation techniques and inputs used to measure fair value for both Level 2 and Level 3 fair value measurements. We adopted this guidance effective January 31, 2010, except for the presentation of purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements, which will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of the first phase of this guidance did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows. We do not expect the adoption of the second phase of this guidance to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
     In December 2010, the FASB updated the disclosures of supplementary pro forma information for business combinations. This update specifies that if a public entity presents comparative financial statements, the entity should disclose revenue and earnings of the combined entity as though the business combination(s) that occurred during the current year had occurred as of the beginning of the comparable prior annual reporting period only. This amendment also expands the supplemental pro forma disclosures related to business combinations to include a description of the nature and amount of material, non-recurring pro forma adjustments directly attributable to the business combination included in the reported pro forma revenue and earnings. This update is effective prospectively for business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after December 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. We do not expect the adoption of this update to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
     In December 2010, the FASB issued guidance to clarify when to perform step 2 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. This update modifies step 1 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts, requiring the entity to assess whether it is more likely than not that the reporting units’ goodwill is impaired in order to determine if the entity should perform step 2 of the goodwill impairment test for those reporting unit(s). This update is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. Early adoption is not permitted. We do not expect the adoption of this update to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
     Foreign Currency Risk
     We are subject to exposure from fluctuations in U.S. dollar/Euro exchange rates, U.S. dollar/pounds Sterling (“GBP”) exchange rates and U.S. dollar/Canadian dollar (“CAD”) exchange rates as a result of our direct sourcing programs and our operations in foreign countries. Our acquired UK-based operations in particular are subject to exposure from fluctuations in U.S. dollar/GBP exchange rates as Dimensions and Alexandra sell their products and conduct their business primarily in GBP but purchase most of their merchandise in transactions paid in U.S. dollars.
     As further described in Note 10 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Information and Results of Operations — Liquidity and Capital Resources”, our risk management policy is to hedge a significant portion of forecasted merchandise purchases for our direct sourcing programs that bear foreign exchange risk using foreign exchange forward contracts. The Company has not elected to apply hedge accounting to these transactions denominated in a foreign currency. At January 29, 2011, we had six contracts maturing in varying increments to purchase euros for an aggregate notional amount of US$3.8 million maturing at various dates through October 2011, 10 contracts maturing in varying increments to purchase U.S. dollars for an aggregate notional amount of CAD $5.8 million maturing at various dates through May 2011 and 70 contracts maturing in varying increments to purchase U.S. dollars for an aggregate notional amount of GBP £27.6 million maturing at various dates through September 2011. For the fiscal year ended January 29, 2011, we recognized a pre-tax gain of $0.6 million in cost of sales on the consolidated statement of earnings for our derivative financial instruments not designated as cash flow hedges. We held no outstanding contracts at January 30, 2010. A hypothetical 10% increase in applicable January 29, 2011 forward rates could decrease the fair value of the derivative financial instruments by $1.6 million, whereas a hypothetical 10% decrease in applicable January 29, 2011 forward rates could increase the fair value of the derivative contracts by $2.2 million. However, it should be noted that any change in the value of these contracts, whether real or hypothetical, would be significantly offset by an inverse change in the value of the underlying hedged item.
     Dimensions and Alexandra, our UK-based acquisitions, sell their products and conduct their business primarily in GBP but purchase most of their merchandise in transactions paid in U.S. dollars. The exchange rate between the GBP and U.S. dollar has fluctuated over the last ten years. A decline in the value of the GBP as compared to the U.S. dollar will adversely impact our UK operating results as the cost of merchandise purchases will increase and the revenues and earnings of our UK operations will be reduced when they are translated to U.S. dollars. Also, the value of our UK net assets in U.S. dollars may decline. Dimensions and Alexandra utilize foreign currency hedging contracts as discussed above to limit exposure to changes in U.S. dollar/GBP exchange rates.
     Moores conducts its business in CAD. The exchange rate between CAD and U.S. dollars has fluctuated over the last ten years. If the value of the CAD against the U.S. dollar weakens, then the revenues and earnings of our Canadian operations will be reduced when they are translated to U.S. dollars. Also, the value of our Canadian net assets in U.S. dollars may decline. Moores utilizes foreign currency hedging contracts as discussed above to limit exposure to changes in U.S. dollar/CAD exchange rates.
     Interest Rate Risk
     We are also exposed to risk under our Credit Agreement. Interest rates under our Credit Agreement vary with the (i) adjusted LIBO rate, (ii) adjusted EURIBO rate, (iii) CDO rate, (iv) Canadian prime rate or (v) an alternate base rate (equal to the greater of the prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.5% or the adjusted LIBO rate for a one month period plus 1.0%). Advances under the Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate per annum using the applicable indices plus a varying interest rate margin up to 2.75%. See Note 4 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. At January 29, 2011, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Agreement.
     We also have exposure to market rate risk for changes in interest rates as those rates relate to our investment portfolio. The primary objective of our investment activities is to preserve principal while at the same time maximizing yields without significantly increasing risk. As of January 29, 2011, we have highly liquid investments classified as cash equivalents in our consolidated balance sheet. Future investment income earned on our cash equivalents will fluctuate in line with short-term interest rates.

ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of
The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc.
Houston, Texas
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of January 29, 2011 and January 30, 2010, and the related consolidated statements of earnings, equity and comprehensive income, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended January 29, 2011. Our audits also included the financial statement schedule listed in the Index at Item 15. These financial statements and financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements and financial statement schedule based on our audits.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, such consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. and subsidiaries as of January 29, 2011 and January 30, 2010, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended January 29, 2011, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Also, in our opinion, such financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.
As discussed in Note 14 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company changed its method of accounting for merchandise inventories at its K&G brand from the retail inventory method to the average cost method during the year ended January 29, 2011. The accounting change was applied retrospectively to February 1, 2009.
We have also audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of January 29, 2011, based on the criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission and our report dated March 30, 2011 expressed an unqualified opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
     Organization and Business — The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) is a specialty apparel retailer offering suits, suit separates, sport coats, pants, shoes, shirts, sportswear, outerwear and accessories for men and tuxedo rentals. We offer our products and services through multiple channels including The Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux, K&G, Moores Clothing for Men and on the internet at www.menswearhouse.com. Our stores are located throughout the United States and Canada and carry a wide selection of brand name and private label merchandise. In addition, we offer our customers a variety of services, including alterations and our loyalty program, and most of our K&G stores offer ladies’ career apparel, sportswear and accessories, including shoes. We follow the standard fiscal year of the retail industry, which is a 52-week or 53-week period ending on the Saturday closest to January 31. Fiscal year 2010 ended on January 29, 2011, fiscal year 2009 ended on January 30, 2010 and fiscal year 2008 ended on January 31, 2009. Fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008 each included 52 weeks.
     We also conduct corporate apparel and uniform operations through Twin Hill in the United States and, in the Houston, Texas area, conduct retail dry cleaning and laundry operations through MW Cleaners.
     On August 6, 2010, we acquired Dimensions Clothing Limited (“Dimensions”) and certain assets of Alexandra plc (“Alexandra”), two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the United Kingdom (refer to Note 2 for further details regarding the acquisitions). As a result of these acquisitions, in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company revised its segment reporting to reflect two reportable segments, retail and corporate apparel, based on the way we manage, evaluate and internally report our business activities. Prior to these acquisitions our corporate apparel business did not have a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company and we reported our business as one operating segment. Prior period amounts reported as one operating segment have been revised to conform with our new segment reporting structure. Refer to Note 11 for further segment information.
     On September 1, 2010, the Company assigned its rights to receive an aggregate of $2.6 million of the proceeds from life insurance policies on the life of George Zimmer, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, to Mr. Zimmer and a trust for the benefit of Mr. Zimmer in exchange for a cash payment of $2.6 million from Mr. Zimmer. The Company acquired the right to receive a portion of the proceeds from the life insurance policies as a result of paying premiums in the amount of $2.6 million on the policies. All such premium payments were made by the Company prior to 2003.
     Principles of Consolidation — The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. and its subsidiaries. Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.
     Use of Estimates — The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Our most significant estimates and assumptions, as discussed in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis — Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” included herein, are those relating to revenue recognition, inventories, impairment of long-lived assets, including goodwill, amortization of the cost of our tuxedo rental product, our estimated liabilities for self-insured portions of our workers’ compensation and employee health benefit costs, our estimates relating to income taxes and our operating lease accounting.
     Cash and Cash Equivalents — Cash and cash equivalents includes all cash in banks, cash on hand and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less.

THE MEN’S WEARHOUSE, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS — (Continued)
     Accounts Receivable — Accounts receivable consists of our receivables from third-party credit card providers and other trade receivables, net of an allowance for uncollectible accounts of $0.9 million and $0.4 million in fiscal 2010 and 2009, respectively. Collectibility is reviewed regularly and the allowance is adjusted as necessary. Our other trade receivables consist primarily of receivables from our corporate apparel segment customers.
     Inventories — Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined based on the average cost method. Our inventory cost also includes estimated buying and distribution costs (warehousing, freight, hangers and merchandising costs) associated with the inventory. Buying and distribution costs are allocated to inventory based on the ratio of annual product purchases to inventory cost. We make assumptions, based primarily on historical experience, as to items in our inventory that may be damaged, obsolete or salable only at marked down prices and reduce the cost of inventory to reflect the market value of these items.
     In the third quarter of fiscal 2010, we changed the method of determining cost under the lower of cost or market inventory valuation method used for our K&G brand (representing approximately 23% of our inventory) from the retail inventory method to the average cost method. We recorded the cumulative effect of the change in accounting principle retrospectively as of February 1, 2009. The cumulative effect of this change in accounting principle as of February 1, 2009 was an increase in inventory of $2.2 million, a decrease in deferred tax assets of $0.9 million and a net increase in retained earnings of $1.3 million. The retrospective application of this accounting change impacted both segment and consolidated operating income, as well as consolidated net earnings, for all comparable periods presented by insignificant amounts. The change in accounting principle did not have any impact on our previously reported net cash flows, sales or comparable store sales. Refer to Note 14 for additional information and disclosures.
     Property and Equipment — Property and equipment are stated at cost. Normal repairs and maintenance costs are charged to earnings as incurred and additions and major improvements are capitalized. The cost of assets retired or otherwise disposed of and the related allowances for depreciation are eliminated from the accounts in the period of disposal and the resulting gain or loss is credited or charged to earnings.
     Buildings are depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives of 20 to 25 years. Depreciation of leasehold improvements is computed on the straight-line method over the term of the lease, which is generally five to ten years based on the initial lease term plus first renewal option periods that are reasonably assured, or the useful life of the assets, whichever is shorter. Furniture, fixtures and equipment are depreciated using primarily the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives of three to 25 years.
     Depreciation expense was $73.6 million, $83.9 million and $88.1 million for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
     In January 2009, we received cash proceeds of approximately $9.6 million from the State of California (the “State”) for certain property being acquired by the State pursuant to eminent domain. We recognized a pretax gain of $8.8 million from this transaction. The property acquired by the State is primarily machinery, equipment and leasehold improvements at the former site of a distribution facility in Arleta, California. The gain is included in “Selling, general and administrative expenses” in the consolidated statement of earnings for the period ended January 31, 2009.
     Impairment of Long-Lived Assets — Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment and identifiable intangibles with finite useful lives, are periodically evaluated for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Assets are grouped and evaluated for impairment at the lowest level of which there are identifiable cash flows, which is generally at a store level. Assets are reviewed using factors including, but not limited to, the Company’s future operating plans and projected cash flows. The determination of whether impairment has occurred is based on an estimate of undiscounted future cash flows directly related to the assets, compared to the carrying value of the assets. If the sum of the undiscounted future cash flows of the assets does not exceed the carrying value of the assets, full or partial impairment may exist. If the asset carrying amount exceeds its fair value, an impairment charge is recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the asset. Fair value is determined using an income approach,

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS — (Continued)
which requires discounting the estimated future cash flows associated with the asset. Estimating future cash flows requires management to make assumptions and to apply judgment, including forecasting future sales, costs and useful lives of assets. Significant judgment is also involved in selecting the appropriate discount rate to be applied in determining the estimated fair value of an asset. Changes to our key assumptions related to future performance, market conditions and other economic factors can significantly affect our impairment evaluation. For example, unanticipated adverse market conditions can cause individual stores to become unprofitable and can result in an impairment charge for the property and equipment assets in those stores.
     During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, we recognized pretax non-cash asset impairment charges of $1.8 million related mainly to store assets for two K&G stores still in operation. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, we recognized pretax non-cash asset impairment charges of $19.5 million related to store assets for 145 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores and 12 K&G stores. During fiscal 2010, we recognized pretax non-cash asset impairment charges of $5.9 million related to store assets for 49 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores, four K&G stores and three Men’s Wearhouse stores.
     The pretax asset impairment charges for the K&G stores of $1.8 million in 2008, $5.1 million in 2009 and $1.9 million in 2010 are the result primarily of sales declines that started in 2007 and continued through fiscal 2010 caused mainly by the downturn experienced by the U.S. economy.
     The pretax asset impairment charges related to the store assets for the Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores were $14.4 million in fiscal 2009 and $3.6 million in fiscal 2010. Most of our stand-alone tuxedo rental stores were acquired in April 2007 or opened subsequently and operated as MW Tux from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 until the first quarter of fiscal 2009 when they were renamed Men’s Wearhouse and Tux. These rental stores offer a full selection of tuxedo rental product as well as an expanded selection of retail merchandise, including dress and casual apparel targeted towards a younger customer, which was introduced during the first quarter of fiscal 2009. It was anticipated that expanding the retail merchandise at the rental stores and renaming them to Men’s Wearhouse and Tux would diminish or possibly reverse a consumer driven shifting of rental revenues that was occurring from the rental stores to our Men’s Wearhouse stores located in close proximity (one mile or less). Although the expanded merchandise offering contributed to a significant increase in retail clothing sales by the rental stores in fiscal 2009 and 2010, the shifting of tuxedo rental revenues from the rental stores to nearby Men’s Wearhouse stores continued to occur. In total, tuxedo rental revenues for fiscal 2010 were $364.3 million compared to $334.1 million in 2009 and $330.0 million in fiscal 2008; however, $14.4 million and $3.6 million of store assets in fiscal 2009 and 2010, respectively, for the stand-alone Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores were impaired due mainly to the shifting of rental revenues.
     In fiscal 2010, we also recognized pretax asset impairment charges of $0.4 million for three Men’s Wearhouse stores, two of which are still in operation.
     Changes to our key assumptions related to future performance, market conditions and other economic factors could result in future impairment charges for stores or other long-lived assets where the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable.
     Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets — Goodwill and other intangible assets are initially recorded at their fair values. Trademarks, tradenames, customer relationships and other identifiable intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized to expense over their estimated useful lives of 3 to 20 years using the straight-line method and are periodically evaluated for impairment as discussed in the “Impairment of Long-Lived Assets” section above. Identifiable intangible assets with an indefinite useful life, including goodwill, are not amortized but are evaluated annually as of our fiscal year end for impairment. A more frequent evaluation is performed if events or circumstances indicate that impairment could have occurred. Such events or circumstances could include, but are not limited to, significant negative industry or economic trends, unanticipated changes in the competitive environment, decisions to significantly modify or dispose of operations and a significant sustained decline in the market price of our stock.
     Goodwill represents the excess cost of businesses acquired over the fair value of the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed in prior business combinations. Goodwill totaled $88.0 million at January 29, 2011, of which $27.0 million related to our acquisition of Dimensions on August 6, 2010 as discussed in Note 2 below. For purposes of our goodwill impairment evaluation, the reporting units are our operating brands identified in Note 11. Goodwill has been assigned to the reporting units based on prior business combinations

related to the brands. The goodwill impairment evaluation is performed in two steps. The first step is intended to determine if potential impairment exists and is performed by comparing each reporting unit’s fair value to its carrying value, including goodwill. If the carrying value of a reporting unit exceeds its estimated fair value, goodwill is considered potentially impaired, and we must complete the second step of the testing to determine the amount of any impairment. The second step requires an allocation of the reporting unit’s first step estimated fair value to the individual assets and liabilities of the reporting unit in the same manner as if the reporting unit was being acquired in a business combination. Any excess of the estimated fair value over the amounts allocated to the individual assets and liabilities represents the implied fair value of goodwill for the reporting unit. If the implied fair value of goodwill is less than the recorded goodwill, we would recognize an impairment charge for the difference.
     In our step one process, we estimate the fair value of our reporting units using a combined income and market comparable approach. Our income approach uses projected future cash flows that are discounted using a weighted-average cost of capital analysis that reflects current market conditions. The market comparable approach primarily considers market price multiples of comparable companies and applies those price multiples to certain key drivers of the reporting unit. We engage an independent valuation firm to assist us in estimating the fair value of our reporting units.
     Management judgment is a significant factor in the goodwill impairment evaluation process. The computations require management to make estimates and assumptions. Critical assumptions that are used as part of these evaluations include:
    The potential future cash flows of the reporting unit. The income approach relies on the timing and estimates of future cash flows. The projections use management’s estimates of economic and market conditions over the projected period, including growth rates in revenue, gross margin and expense. The cash flows are based on the Company’s most recent business operating plans and various growth rates have been assumed for years beyond the current business plan period. We believe that the assumptions and rates used in our 2010 impairment evaluation are reasonable; however, variations in the assumptions and rates could result in significantly different estimates of fair value.
    Selection of an appropriate discount rate. The income approach requires the selection of an appropriate discount rate, which is based on a weighted average cost of capital analysis. The discount rate is affected by changes in short-term interest rates and long-term yield as well as variances in the typical capital structure of marketplace participants. Given current economic conditions, it is possible that the discount rate will fluctuate in the near term. The weighted average cost of capital used to discount the cash flows for our reporting units ranged from 12.0% to 14.0% for the 2010 analysis.
    Selection of comparable companies within the industry. For purposes of the market comparable approach, valuations were determined by calculating average price multiples of relevant key drivers from a group of companies that are comparable to the reporting units being analyzed and applying those price multiples to the key drivers of the reporting unit. While the market price multiple is not an assumption, a presumption that it provides an indicator of the value of the reporting unit is inherent in the valuation. The determination of the market comparable also involves a degree of judgment. Earnings multiples of 6.0 to 7.3 were used for the 2010 analysis for our operating brands including Men’s Wearhouse, K&G, Moores and MW Cleaners.
     As discussed above, the fair values of reporting units in 2010 were determined using a combined income and market comparable approach. We believe these two approaches are appropriate valuation techniques and we generally weight the two values equally as an estimate of reporting unit fair value for the purposes of our impairment testing. However, we may weigh one value more heavily than the other when conditions merit doing so. The fair value derived from the weighting of these two methods provided appropriate valuations that, in aggregate, reasonably reconciled to our market capitalization, taking into account observable control premiums. Therefore, we used the valuations in evaluating goodwill for possible impairment and determined that none of our goodwill was impaired.

     The goodwill impairment evaluation process requires management to make estimates and assumptions with regard to the fair value of the reporting units. Actual values may differ significantly from these judgments, particularly if there are significant adverse changes in the operating environment for our reporting units. Sustained declines in the Company’s market capitalization could also increase the risk of goodwill impairment. Such occurrences could result in future goodwill impairment charges that would, in turn, negatively impact the Company’s results of operations; however, any such goodwill impairments would be non-cash charges that would not affect our cash flows or compliance with our current debt covenants.
     No goodwill impairment was identified in fiscal 2010, 2009 or 2008.
     Tuxedo Rental Product — Tuxedo rental product is amortized to cost of sales based on the cost of each unit rented. The cost of each unit rented is estimated based on the number of times the unit is expected to be rented and the average cost of the rental product. Lost, damaged and retired rental product is also charged to cost of sales. Tuxedo rental product is amortized to expense generally over a two to three year period. We make assumptions, based primarily on historical experience and information obtained from tuxedo rental industry sources, as to the number of times each unit can be rented. Amortization expense was $33.5 million, $37.2 million and $38.2 million for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
     Derivative Financial Instruments — Derivative financial instruments are recorded in the consolidated balance sheet at fair value as other current assets or accrued expenses and other current liabilities. The Company has not elected to apply hedge accounting to our derivative financial instruments. The gain or loss on derivative financial instruments is recorded in cost of sales in the consolidated statements of earnings. Refer to Note 10 for further information regarding our derivative instruments.
     Self-Insurance — We self-insure significant portions of our workers’ compensation and employee medical costs. We estimate our liability for future payments under these programs based on historical experience and various assumptions as to participating employees, health care costs, number of claims and other factors, including industry trends and information provided to us by our insurance broker. We also use actuarial estimates. If the number of claims or the costs associated with those claims were to increase significantly over our estimates, additional charges to earnings could be necessary to cover required payments.
     Sabbatical Leave — We recognize compensation expense associated with a sabbatical leave or other similar benefit arrangement over the requisite service period during which an employee earns the benefit. The accrued liability for sabbatical leave, which is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets, was $9.9 million and $8.9 million as of fiscal 2010 and 2009, respectively.
     Income Taxes — Income taxes are accounted for using the asset and liability method. Deferred tax liabilities or assets are established for temporary differences between financial and tax reporting bases and subsequently adjusted to reflect changes in enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences reverse. The deferred tax assets are reduced, if necessary, by a valuation allowance to the extent future realization of those tax benefits is uncertain.
     The tax benefit from an uncertain tax position is recognized only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such positions are then measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon settlement. Interest and/or penalties related to uncertain tax positions are recognized in income tax expense. See Note 5 for further information regarding income taxes.
     Revenue Recognition — Clothing product revenue is recognized at the time of sale and delivery of merchandise, net of actual sales returns and a provision for estimated sales returns, and excludes sales taxes. Revenues from tuxedo rental, alteration and other services are recognized upon completion of the services.

     We present all non-income government-assessed taxes (sales, use and value added taxes) collected from our customers and remitted to governmental agencies on a net basis (excluded from net sales) in our consolidated financial statements. The government-assessed taxes are recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities until they are remitted to the government agency.
     Gift Cards and Gift Card Breakage — Proceeds from the sale of gift cards are recorded as a liability and are recognized as net sales from products and services when the cards are redeemed. Our gift cards do not have an expiration date. Prior to the second quarter of 2009, all unredeemed gift card proceeds were reflected as a liability until escheated in accordance with applicable laws and we did not recognize any income from unredeemed gift cards. During the second quarter of 2009, we entered into an agreement with an unrelated third party who became the issuer of the Company’s gift cards and assumed the existing liability for which there were no currently existing claims under unclaimed property statutes. The Company is no longer the primary obligor for the third party issued gift cards and is therefore not subject to claims under unclaimed property statutes as the agreement effectively transfers the escheatment liability for unredeemed gift cards to the third party. Accordingly, beginning with the second quarter of 2009, we recognize income from breakage of gift cards when the likelihood of redemption of the gift card is remote. We determine our gift card breakage rate based upon historical redemption patterns. Based on this historical information, the likelihood of a gift card remaining unredeemed can be determined 36 months after the gift card is issued. At that time, breakage income is recognized for those cards for which the likelihood of redemption is deemed to be remote and for which there is no legal obligation for us to remit the value of such unredeemed gift cards to any relevant jurisdictions. Gift card breakage income is recorded as other operating income and is classified as a reduction of “Selling, general and administrative expenses” in our consolidated statement of earnings. Pretax breakage income, including a cumulative adjustment of $3.1 million recorded in the second quarter of 2009, of $5.0 million was recognized during fiscal 2009. Pretax breakage income of $1.8 million was recognized during fiscal 2010. Gift card breakage estimates are reviewed on a quarterly basis.
     Loyalty Program — We maintain a customer loyalty program in our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores stores in which customers receive points for purchases. Points are equivalent to dollars spent on a one-to-one basis, excluding any sales tax dollars. Upon reaching 500 points, customers are issued a $50 rewards certificate which they may redeem for purchases at our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux or Moores stores. Generally, reward certificates earned must be redeemed no later than six months from the date of issuance. We accrue the estimated costs of the anticipated certificate redemptions when the certificates are issued and charge such costs to cost of goods sold. Redeemed certificates are recorded as markdowns when redeemed and no revenue is recognized for the redeemed certificate amounts. The estimate of costs associated with the loyalty program requires us to make assumptions related to the cost of product or services to be provided to customers when the certificates are redeemed as well as redemption rates.
     Vendor Allowances —Vendor allowances received are recognized as a reduction of the cost of the merchandise purchased.
     Shipping and Handling Costs — All shipping and handling costs for product sold are recognized as cost of goods sold.
     Operating Leases — Operating leases relate primarily to stores and generally contain rent escalation clauses, rent holidays, contingent rent provisions and occasionally leasehold incentives. Rent expense for operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, which is generally five to ten years based on the initial lease term plus first renewal option periods that are reasonably assured. Rent expense for stores is included in cost of sales as a part of occupancy cost and other rent is included in selling general and administrative expenses. The lease terms commence when we take possession with the right to control use of the leased premises and, for stores, is generally 60 days prior to the date rent payments begin. Rental costs associated with ground or building operating leases that are incurred during a construction period are recognized as rental expense.
     Deferred rent that results from recognition of rent expense on a straight-line basis is included in other liabilities. Landlord incentives received for reimbursement of leasehold improvements are recorded as deferred rent and amortized as a reduction to rent expense over the term of the lease. Contingent rentals are generally based on percentages of sales and are recognized as store rent expense as they accrue.

     Advertising — Advertising costs are expensed as incurred or, in the case of media production costs, when the commercial first airs. Advertising expenses were $91.5 million, $82.0 million and $77.0 million in fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
     New Store Costs — Promotion and other costs associated with the opening of new stores are expensed as incurred.
     Store Closures and Relocations — Costs associated with store closures or relocations are charged to expense when the liability is incurred. When we close or relocate a store, we record a liability for the present value of estimated unrecoverable cost, which is substantially made up of the remaining net lease obligation.
     Share-Based Compensation — In recognizing share-based compensation, we follow the provisions of the authoritative guidance regarding share-based awards. This guidance establishes fair value as the measurement objective in accounting for stock awards and requires the application of a fair value based measurement method in accounting for compensation cost, which is recognized over the requisite service period.
     We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of stock options on the date of grant. The fair value of restricted stock and deferred stock units is determined based on the number of shares granted and the quoted price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense over the requisite service period. For grants that are subject to graded vesting over a service period, we recognize expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for the entire award.
     Share-based compensation expense recognized for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008 was $11.9 million, $10.2 million and $9.8 million, respectively. Total income tax benefit recognized in net earnings for share-based compensation arrangements was $4.6 million, $3.9 million and $3.8 million for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Refer to Note 7 for additional disclosures regarding share-based compensation.
     Foreign Currency Translation — Assets and liabilities of foreign subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rates in effect at each balance sheet date. Equity is translated at applicable historical exchange rates. Income, expense and cash flow items are translated at average exchange rates during the year. Resulting translation adjustments are reported as a separate component of comprehensive income.
     Comprehensive Income — Comprehensive income includes all changes in equity during the period presented that result from transactions and other economic events other than transactions with shareholders.
     Noncontrolling Interest — Noncontrolling interest in our consolidated balance sheets represents the proportionate share of equity attributable to the minority shareholders of our consolidated United Kingdom subsidiaries. Noncontrolling interest is adjusted each period to reflect the allocation of comprehensive income to or the absorption of comprehensive losses by the noncontrolling interest.
     Earnings per share — We calculate earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders using the two-class method in accordance with the guidance for determining whether instruments granted in share-based payment transactions are participating securities, which provides that unvested share-based payment awards that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) are participating securities and shall be included in the computation of earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders pursuant to the two-class method. This guidance was effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008 and interim periods within those years. All prior period earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders data presented shall be adjusted retrospectively. We adopted this guidance on February 1, 2009. We calculated basic and diluted earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders under both the two-class method and the treasury stock method for fiscal 2010 and 2009, noting no significant difference on the basic and diluted earnings per common share calculations. This guidance has not been applied to prior years as the impact is immaterial. Refer to Note 3 for earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders disclosures.

     Recent Accounting Pronouncements — In January 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued authoritative guidance that expands the required disclosures about fair value measurements. This guidance provides for new disclosures requiring the Company to (a) disclose separately the amounts of significant transfers in and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements and describe the reasons for the transfers and (b) present separately information about purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements. This guidance also provides clarification of existing disclosures requiring the Company to (i) determine each class of assets and liabilities based on the nature and risks of the investments rather than by major security type and (ii) for each class of assets and liabilities, disclose the valuation techniques and inputs used to measure fair value for both Level 2 and Level 3 fair value measurements. We adopted this guidance effective January 31, 2010, except for the presentation of purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements, which will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of the first phase of this guidance did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows. We do not expect the adoption of the second phase of this guidance to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
     In December 2010, the FASB updated the disclosures of supplementary pro forma information for business combinations. This update specifies that if a public entity presents comparative financial statements, the entity should disclose revenue and earnings of the combined entity as though the business combination(s) that occurred during the current year had occurred as of the beginning of the comparable prior annual reporting period only. This amendment also expands the supplemental pro forma disclosures related to business combinations to include a description of the nature and amount of material, non-recurring pro forma adjustments directly attributable to the business combination included in the reported pro forma revenue and earnings. This update is effective prospectively for business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after December 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. We do not expect the adoption of this update to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
     In December 2010, the FASB issued guidance to clarify when to perform step 2 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. This update modifies step 1 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts, requiring the entity to assess whether it is more likely than not that the reporting units’ goodwill is impaired in order to determine if the entity should perform step 2 of the goodwill impairment test for those reporting unit(s). This update is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. Early adoption is not permitted. We do not expect the adoption of this update to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
2. ACQUISITIONS
     On August 6, 2010, we acquired Dimensions and certain assets of Alexandra, two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the United Kingdom (“UK”), to complement our corporate apparel operations. The results of operations for Dimensions and Alexandra have been included in the consolidated financial statements since that date. The acquired businesses are organized under a UK-based holding company, of which the Company controls 86% and certain previous shareholders of Dimensions control 14%. The Company has the right to acquire the remaining outstanding shares of the UK-based holding company after fiscal 2013 on terms set forth in the Investment, Shareholders’ and Stock Purchase Agreement.
     The acquisition-date cash consideration transferred for the Dimensions and Alexandra acquisitions was $79.8 million and $18.0 million, respectively, totaling $97.8 million (£61 million), and was funded through the Company’s cash on hand.

     The following table summarizes the fair values of the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Dimensions and Alexandra acquisitions as of the date of acquisition. As of January 29, 2011, measurement-period adjustments were not material.

Net assets acquired
  $ 79,825     $ 17,961     $ 97,786  
 
                 
     Goodwill is calculated as the excess of the purchase price over the net assets acquired. The goodwill recognized is attributable primarily to expected synergies and the assembled workforce of Dimensions. All of the goodwill has been assigned to our corporate apparel reporting segment and is non-deductible for tax purposes.
     Acquired intangible assets for both acquisitions consist primarily of customer relationship intangibles and trademarks, which are being amortized over their estimated useful lives of primarily 12 years. Acquired intangible assets also include $1.3 million related to certain trademarks of Alexandra which are not subject to amortization but will be evaluated at least annually for impairment.
     In connection with the Alexandra acquisition, we recognized a preliminary gain on a bargain purchase of approximately $0.5 million which is included in “Selling, general and administrative expenses” (“SG&A”) in the 2010 consolidated statements of earnings. The transaction resulted in a bargain purchase because the previous UK business of Alexandra plc was in administration (similar to bankruptcy) and was being sold through a bidding process.
     The $13.0 million noncontrolling interest fair value as of the August 6, 2010 acquisition date was determined based upon the $79.8 million fair value of consideration transferred to acquire our 86% interest in the UK businesses.
     Total costs incurred for the acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra were $6.4 million for fiscal 2010, and are included in SG&A in the consolidated statement of earnings.
     The acquired businesses contributed net sales of $104.8 million, gross margin of $29.5 million and a net loss, including the pretax $6.4 million in acquisition costs, of $2.6 million to the Company’s consolidated statement of earnings from the date of acquisition to the period ended January 29, 2011.

     Subsequent to completion of the acquisitions, Alexandra operations were extended to The Netherlands and France through newly formed subsidiaries. These subsidiaries did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
3. EARNINGS PER SHARE
     As described in Note 1, “Earnings per share”, we adopted the FASB’s guidance regarding the determination of whether instruments granted in share-based payment transactions are participating securities on February 1, 2009. Our unvested restricted stock and deferred stock units contain rights to receive nonforfeitable dividends, and thus are participating securities requiring the two-class method of computing earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders. The two-class method is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings per common share for each class of common stock and participating security according to dividends declared and participation rights in undistributed earnings. We calculated basic and diluted earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders under both the two-class method and the treasury stock method for fiscal years 2010 and 2009, noting no significant difference on the basic and diluted earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders calculations. This guidance has not been applied to prior years as the impact was immaterial.
     Basic earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders is determined using the two-class method and is computed by dividing net earnings attributable to common shareholders by the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders reflects the more dilutive earnings per common share amount calculated using the two-class method for fiscal years 2010 and 2009 and the treasury stock method for fiscal 2008.

For fiscal 2008, 1.2 million anti-dilutive shares of common stock were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders.
4. LONG-TERM DEBT
     On January 26, 2011, we entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with a group of banks to amend and restate our existing credit facility, which provided the Company with a revolving credit facility that was scheduled to mature on February 11, 2012, as well as a term loan to our Canadian subsidiaries, which was scheduled to mature on February 10, 2011. The term loan outstanding balance of US$46.7 million was paid in full during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.
     The Credit Agreement provides for a total senior revolving credit facility of $200.0 million, with increases to $300.0 million upon additional lender commitments, that matures on January 26, 2016. The Credit Agreement is secured by the stock of certain of our subsidiaries. The Credit Agreement has several borrowing and interest rate options including the following indices: (i) adjusted LIBO rate, (ii) adjusted EURIBO rate, (iii) CDO rate, (iv) Canadian prime rate or (v) an alternate base rate (equal to the greater of the prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.5% or the adjusted LIBO rate for a one month period plus 1.0%). Advances under the Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate per annum using the applicable indices plus a varying interest rate margin up to 2.75%. The Credit Agreement also provides for fees applicable to amounts available to be drawn under outstanding letters of credit which range from 2.00% to 2.75%, and a fee on unused commitments which ranges from 0.35% to 0.50%. As of January 29, 2011, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Agreement.
     The Credit Agreement contains certain restrictive and financial covenants, including the requirement to maintain certain financial ratios. The restrictive provisions in the Credit Agreement reflect an overall covenant structure that is generally representative of a commercial loan made to an investment-grade company. Our debt, however, is not rated and we have not sought, and are not seeking, a rating of our debt. We were in compliance with the covenants in the Credit Agreement as of January 29, 2011.

     We utilize letters of credit primarily to secure inventory purchases and as collateral for workers compensation claims. At January 29, 2011, letters of credit totaling approximately $25.2 million were issued and outstanding. Borrowings available under our Credit Agreement at January 29, 2011 were $174.8 million.

     No provision for U.S. income taxes or Canadian withholding taxes has been made on the cumulative undistributed earnings of foreign companies (approximately $124.1 million at January 29, 2011) because we intend to reinvest permanently outside of the United States. The potential deferred tax liability associated with these earnings, net of foreign tax credits associated with the earnings, is estimated to be $18.4 million.
     A reconciliation of the statutory federal income tax rate to our effective tax rate is as follows:
                         
    Fiscal Year

     At January 29, 2011, we had net deferred tax assets of $27.5 million with $32.2 million classified as other current assets, $5.0 million classified as other non-current assets and $9.7 million classified as other non-current liabilities. At January 30, 2010, we had net deferred tax assets of $40.6 million with $36.4 million classified as other current assets, $7.6 million classified as other non-current assets and $3.4 million classified as other non-current liabilities. A valuation allowance of $1.4 million was established and included in net deferred tax assets at January 30, 2010 based on our assumptions about our ability to utilize foreign tax credits generated in fiscal 2009 before such credits expire. Due to events that occurred during fiscal 2010, it is more likely than not that the foreign tax credits will be fully utilized in the future. As such, the valuation allowance was released during fiscal 2010.

     In accordance with the guidance regarding accounting for uncertainty in income taxes, we classify uncertain tax positions as non-current income tax liabilities unless expected to be paid within one year and recognize interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. As of January 29, 2011 and January 30, 2010, the total amount of accrued interest related to uncertain tax positions was $1.4 million and $1.5 million, respectively. Amounts charged to operations for interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters were $0.4 million, $0.4 million and $0.5 million in fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
     The following table summarizes the activity related to our unrecognized tax benefits (in thousands):
                 
    January 29,     January 30,  
    2011     2010  
Gross unrecognized tax benefits, beginning balance
  $ 7,073     $ 7,488

  $ 5,559     $ 7,073  
 
           
     Of the $5.6 million in unrecognized tax benefits as of January 29, 2011, $4.2 million, if recognized, would reduce our income tax expense and effective tax rate. It is reasonably possible that there could be a net reduction in the balance of unrecognized tax benefits of up to $1.0 million in the next twelve months.
     The Company is subject to routine compliance examinations on tax matters by various tax jurisdictions in the ordinary course of business. Tax years 2006 through 2010 are open to such examinations. Our tax jurisdictions include the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, The Netherlands and France as well as their states, provinces and other political subdivisions. A number of U.S. state examinations are ongoing. As of January 29, 2011, we cannot reasonably determine the timing or outcomes of these examinations.

     At January 29, 2011, the company had federal, state and foreign net operating loss (“NOLs”) carryforwards of approximately $26.4 million, $12.1 million and $29.3 million. The federal and state NOLs will expire between fiscal 2014 and 2030, $9.7 million of foreign NOLs can be carried forward indefinitely and $19.6 million of foreign NOLs will expire in fiscal 2030. It is more likely than not that we can fully realize the NOL carryforwards in future years. We also had $4.6 million of foreign tax credit (“FTC”) carryforwards at January 29, 2011 which will expire in fiscal 2019.

     The cash dividend of $0.12 per share declared by our Board of Directors in January 2011 is payable on March 25, 2011 to shareholders of record on March 15, 2011. The dividend payout is approximately $6.4 million and is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet as of January 29, 2011.
     Stock Repurchase Program
     In January 2006, the Board of Directors authorized a $100.0 million share repurchase program of our common stock, which superseded any remaining previous authorizations. In August 2007, the Board of Directors approved a replenishment of the share repurchase program to $100.0 million by authorizing $90.3 million to be added to the remaining $9.7 million of the then current program. In January 2011, the Board of Directors approved a $150.0 million share repurchase program of our common stock, which amends and increases the Company’s existing share repurchase authorization. This authorization superceded any remaining previous authorizations.
     No shares were repurchased under the August 2007 authorization during fiscal 2009 or 2008. No shares were repurchased under the August 2007 or the January 2011 authorization during fiscal 2010. At January 29, 2011, the remaining balance available under the January 2011 authorization was $150.0 million. Subsequent to January 29, 2011 and through March 30, 2011, we have purchased 1,703,432 shares for $45.6 million at an average price per share of $26.77 under the January 2011 authorization.
     The table below summarizes our share repurchases during fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, all of which were private transactions to satisfy tax withholding obligations arising upon the vesting of certain restricted stock.

     Stock Plans
     We have adopted the 1996 Long-Term Incentive Plan (formerly known as the 1996 Stock Option Plan) (“1996 Plan”) which, as amended, provides for an aggregate of up to 2,775,000 shares of our common stock (or the fair market value thereof) with respect to which stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, deferred stock units and performance based awards may be granted to full-time key employees (excluding certain officers); the 1998 Key Employee Stock Option Plan (“1998 Plan”) which, as amended, provides for the grant of options to purchase up to 3,150,000 shares of our common stock to full-time key employees (excluding certain officers); and the 2004 Long-Term Incentive Plan (“2004 Plan”) which, as amended, provides for an aggregate of up to 2,110,059 shares of our common stock (or the fair market value thereof) with respect to which stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, deferred stock units and performance based awards may be granted to full-time key employees and to non-employee directors of the Company. No awards may be granted pursuant to the plans after the end of ten years following the effective date of such plan; provided, however, no awards may be granted pursuant to the 1996 Plan on or after March 29, 2014, which is ten years following its amended and restated effective date. No awards have been available for grant under the 1998 Plan since February 2008. Options granted under these plans must be exercised within ten years of the date of grant.
     In fiscal 1992, we adopted a Non-Employee Director Stock Option Plan (“Director Plan”) which, as amended, provides for an aggregate of up to 251,250 shares of our common stock with respect to which stock options, stock appreciation rights or restricted stock awards may be granted to non-employee directors of the Company. In fiscal 2001, the period during which awards may be granted under the Director Plan was extended to February 23, 2012. Options granted under this plan must be exercised within ten years of the date of grant. In fiscal 2008, the 2004 Plan was amended and restated to allow non-employee directors of the Company to receive awards under the 2004 Plan. All grants to non-employee directors are now issued under the 2004 Plan, as amended, and are subject to the terms of the 2004 Plan.
     Options granted under these Plans vest annually in varying increments over a period from one to ten years. Under the 1996 Plan and the 2004 Plan, options may not be issued at a price less than 100% of the fair market value of our stock on the date of grant. Under the 1996 Plan and the 2004 Plan, the vesting, transferability restrictions and other applicable provisions of any options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, deferred stock units or performance based awards will be determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors or, in the case of awards to non-employee directors, the Board of Directors of the Company. Grants of deferred stock units generally vest over a period from one to three years; however, certain grants vest annually at varying increments over a period up to ten years.
     The options granted under the Director Plan vest one year after the date of grant and were issued at a price equal to the fair market value of our stock on the date of grant. Restricted stock and deferred stock unit awards granted to non-employee directors of the Company under the Director Plan and the 2004 Plan vest one year after the date of grant.
     As of January 29, 2011, 745,727 shares were available for grant under existing plans and 2,777,470 shares of common stock were reserved for future issuance.

     During fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, 50,000, 140,322 and 730,225 stock options, respectively, were granted at a weighted-average grant date fair value of $8.27, $7.22, and $7.93, respectively. The fair value of options is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model using the following weighted average assumptions:
                         
    Fiscal Year  
    2010     2009     2008  
Risk-free interest rates
    1.80 %     2.21 %     2.38 %
Expected lives
  5.0 years   6.9 years   5.0 years
Dividend yield
    1.65 %     1.99 %     0.82 %
Expected volatility
    57.03 %     50.83 %     42.05 %
     The expected volatility is based on historical volatility of our common stock. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The expected term represents the period of time the options are expected to be outstanding after their grant date. The dividend yield is based on the average of the annual dividend divided by the market price of our common stock at the time of declaration. The total intrinsic value of options exercised during fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008 was $1.3 million, $1.5 million and $0.5 million, respectively. As of January 29, 2011, we have unrecognized compensation expense related to nonvested stock options of approximately $5.1 million which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.7 years.

     During fiscal 2010, 29,825 restricted stock shares were granted to our non-employee directors under the 2004 Plan at an average grant price of $23.47 per share. During fiscal 2009, 29,778 restricted stock shares were granted to our non-employee directors under the 2004 Plan at an average grant price of $20.15 per share. During fiscal 2008, 51,504 restricted stock shares were granted to our non-employee directors under the 2004 Plan at an average grant price of $11.65 per share.
     On October 25, 2010, we entered into a Fourth Amended and Restated Employment Agreement (“Agreement”) with David H. Edwab, Vice Chairman of the Company. In accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Company granted to Mr. Edwab 96,800 shares of restricted stock on February 5, 2011, which will vest in equal numbers over a five-year period beginning in 2012. The shares of restricted stock were granted under the 1996 Plan at a grant price per share of $27.77.
     Retirement and Stock Purchase Plans
     We had a defined contribution Employee Stock Ownership Plan (“ESOP”) which provided eligible employees with future retirement benefits. Contributions to the ESOP were made at the discretion of the Board of Directors. No contributions were charged to operations in fiscal 2009 or 2008 and in October 2009, the Board of Directors approved the termination of the ESOP, effective as of October 15, 2009. Each participant and former participant in the ESOP who had an account balance under the ESOP on January 1, 2009 which was not fully vested on that date became fully vested in the amount credited to their account under the ESOP together with any amounts thereafter allocated and credited to such account prior to its distribution. During fiscal 2010, operations were charged $9 thousand pending completion of termination and distribution matters. The termination of the ESOP did not have a significant effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
     We have a 401(k) savings plan which allows eligible employees to save for retirement on a tax deferred basis. Employer matching contributions under the 401(k) savings plan are made based on a formula set by the Board of Directors from time to time. During fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, Company matching contributions for the plan charged to operations were $1.0 million, $0.4 million and $1.3 million, respectively.

     In 1998, we adopted an Employee Stock Discount Plan (“ESDP”) which allows employees to authorize after-tax payroll deductions to be used for the purchase of up to 2,137,500 shares of our common stock at 85% of the lesser of the fair market value of our common stock on the first day of the offering period or the fair market value of our common stock on the last day of the offering period. We make no contributions to this plan but pay all brokerage, service and other costs incurred. A participant may not purchase more than 125 shares during any calendar quarter.
     The fair value of ESDP shares is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model in the quarter that the purchase occurs with the following weighted average assumptions for each respective period:
                         
    Fiscal Year  
    2010     2009     2008  
Risk-free interest rates
    1.56 %     0.16 %     1.02 %

    0.25       0.25       0.25  
Dividend yield
    1.66 %     1.88 %     1.21 %
Expected volatility
    46.40 %     66.86 %     71.48 %
     During fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, employees purchased 120,434, 138,360 and 147,991 shares, respectively, under the ESDP, the weighted-average fair value of which was $17.33, $14.36 and $14.38 per share, respectively. We recognized approximately $0.6 million, $0.7 million and $0.8 million of share-based compensation expense related to the ESDP for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. As of January 29, 2011, 1,057,066 shares were reserved for future issuance under the ESDP.

     The increases in amortizable and infinite-lived intangible assets at January 29, 2011 relate to intangible assets acquired in our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010 as discussed in Note 2.
     The pretax amortization expense associated with intangible assets subject to amortization totaled approximately $2.4 million, $2.2 million and $2.6 million for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Pretax amortization expense associated with intangible assets subject to amortization at January 29, 2011 is estimated to be approximately $3.4 million for fiscal year 2011, $3.3 million for fiscal year 2012 and $3.1 million for each of the fiscal years 2013, 2014 and 2015.
9. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
     Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The authoritative guidance for fair value measurements establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, categorizing the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy can be described as follows: Level 1- observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; Level 2- inputs other than the quoted prices in active markets that are observable either directly or indirectly; and Level 3- unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions. The fair value hierarchy also requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.
     Effective January 31, 2010, we adopted enhanced disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. There were no transfers into or out of Level 1 and Level 2 during the year ended January 29, 2011.

     Derivative financial instruments are comprised of foreign currency forward exchange contracts primarily entered into to minimize our foreign currency exposure related to forecasted purchases of certain inventories denominated in a currency different from the operating entity’s functional currency. Our derivative financial instruments are recorded in the consolidated balance sheets at fair value based upon observable market inputs. Derivative financial instruments in an asset position are included within other current assets in the consolidated balance sheets. Derivative financial instruments in a liability position are included within accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets. Refer to Note 10 for further information regarding our derivative instruments.
     At January 30, 2010, we had no financial assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis.
     Assets and Liabilities that are Measured at Fair Value on a Non-Recurring Basis
     Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment and identifiable intangibles with finite useful lives, are periodically evaluated for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If the asset carrying amount exceeds its fair value, an impairment charge is recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the asset. The fair values of long-lived assets held-for-use are based on our own judgments about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset and on observable market data, when available. We classify these measurements as Level 3 within the fair value hierarchy.
     Assets are grouped and evaluated for impairment at the lowest level at which cash flows are identifiable, which is generally at a store level. Fair value is determined using an income approach, which requires discounting the estimated future cash flows associated with the asset. Estimating future cash flows requires us to make assumptions and to apply judgment, including forecasting future sales, costs and useful lives of assets. Significant judgment is also involved in selecting the appropriate discount rate to be applied in determining the estimated fair value of an asset. The discount rate is commensurate with the risk that selected market participants would assign to the estimated cash flows. The selected market participants represent a group of other retailers with a store footprint similar to ours.

     The following table presents the non-financial assets measured at estimated fair value on a non-recurring basis and any resulting realized losses included in earnings. Because long-lived assets are not measured at fair value on a recurring basis, certain carrying amounts and fair value measurements presented in the table may reflect values at earlier measurement dates and may no longer represent the fair values at January 29, 2011 or January 30, 2010.

     Fair Value of Financial Instruments
     Our financial instruments, other than those presented in the disclosures above, consist of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities and long-term debt. Management estimates that, as of January 29, 2011 and January 30, 2010, the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities approximate their fair value due to the highly liquid or short-term nature of these instruments. The carrying value of long term debt at January 30, 2010 approximates its fair value based upon terms available to us for borrowings with similar arrangements and remaining maturities.
10. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
     We are exposed to market risk associated with foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations as a result of our direct sourcing programs and our operations in foreign countries. In connection with our direct sourcing programs, we may enter into merchandise purchase commitments that are denominated in a currency different from the functional currency of the operating entity. Our risk management policy is to hedge a significant portion of forecasted merchandise purchases for our direct sourcing programs that bear foreign exchange risk using foreign exchange forward contracts. The Company has not elected to apply hedge accounting to these transactions denominated in a foreign currency.
     Our derivative financial instruments are recorded in the consolidated balance sheet at fair value determined by comparing the cost of the foreign currency to be purchased under the contracts using the exchange rates obtained under the contracts (adjusted for forward points) to the hypothetical cost using the spot rate at period end.
     The table below discloses the fair value of the derivative financial instruments included in the consolidated balance sheet as of January 29, 2011. We held no derivative financial instruments as of January 30, 2010.

     At January 29, 2011, we had six contracts maturing in varying increments to purchase euros for an aggregate notional amount of US$3.8 million maturing at various dates through October 2011, 10 contracts maturing in varying increments to purchase USD for an aggregate notional amount of Canadian dollars (“CAD”) $5.8 million maturing at various dates through May 2011 and 70 contracts maturing in varying increments to purchase USD for an aggregate notional amount of pounds Sterling (“GBP”) £27.6 million maturing at various dates through September 2011. For the fiscal year ended January 29, 2011, we recognized a net pre-tax gain of $0.6 million in cost of sales in the consolidated statement of earnings for our derivative financial instruments not designated as cash flow hedges. No amounts were recognized in our results of operations during fiscal 2009 or 2008.
     We had no derivative financial instruments with credit-risk-related contingent features underlying the agreements as of January 29, 2011.
11. SEGMENT REPORTING
     On August 6, 2010, we acquired Dimensions and certain assets of Alexandra, two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the UK (refer to Note 2). As a result of these acquisitions, in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company revised its segment reporting to reflect two reportable segments, retail and corporate apparel, based on the way we manage, evaluate and internally report our business activities. Prior to these acquisitions our corporate apparel business did not have a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company and we reported our business as one operating segment. Prior period amounts reported as one operating segment have been revised to conform to our new segment reporting structure.
     The retail segment includes the results from our four retail merchandising brands: Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux, K&G and Moores. These four brands are operating segments that have been aggregated into the retail reportable segment based on their similar economic characteristics, products, production processes, target customers and distribution methods. MW Cleaners is also aggregated in the retail segment as these operations have not had a significant effect on the revenues or expenses of the Company. Specialty apparel merchandise offered by our four retail merchandising concepts include suits, suit separates, sport coats, pants, shoes, shirts, sportswear, outerwear and accessories for men. Ladies’ career apparel, sportswear and accessories, including shoes is offered at most of our K&G stores and tuxedo rentals are offered at our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores retail stores.
     The corporate apparel segment includes the results from our corporate apparel and uniform operations conducted by Twin Hill in the United States and, beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, Dimensions and Alexandra in the UK. The two corporate apparel and uniform concepts are operating segments that have been aggregated into the reportable corporate apparel segment based on their similar economic characteristics, products, production processes, target customers and distribution methods. The corporate apparel segment provides corporate clothing uniforms and workwear to workforces.
     The accounting policies for each of our operating segments are the same as those described in Note 1.
     Operating income is the primary measure of profit we use to make decisions on allocating resources to our operating segments and to assess the operating performance of each operating segment. It is defined as income before interest expense, interest income, income taxes and noncontrolling interest. Corporate expenses are allocated to the retail segment.

12. CEASED OPERATIONS AND FACILITY CLOSURES
     Ceased Tuxedo Rental Distribution Operations
     In late August 2010, a decision was made by management to cease tuxedo rental distribution operations at four of the then ten U.S. facilities that we had used for that purpose. The tuxedo rental distribution operations at these four facilities ceased in November 2010 and were assumed by the remaining U.S. tuxedo distribution facilities, which allows us to perform tuxedo rental distribution requirements more cost effectively. Three of the facilities were converted to hub locations that redistribute tuxedo rental units and retail apparel merchandise to our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and K&G stores within limited geographic areas. We expect the total pre-tax charge to be incurred in ceasing tuxedo rental distribution operations at these four facilities to be approximately $3.9 million, which consists primarily of severance payments, the write-off of fixed assets and facility remediation costs. We also estimate that approximately $1.8 million of the charge will result in future cash expenditures. All costs are recognized as incurred.
     As of January 29, 2011, we have recognized retail segment pre-tax costs of $3.1 million for the ceased tuxedo rental distribution operations at these four facilities, including $0.9 million for severance payments, $0.7 million for facility remediation costs and $1.5 million for the write-off of fixed assets. These charges are included in SG&A in our consolidated statement of earnings. Net cash payments of $1.5 million related to the ceased tuxedo rental distribution operations were paid in fiscal 2010. The accrued balance of $0.1 million, included within “Accrued expenses and other current liabilities” in our consolidated balance sheet at January 29, 2011, relates to severance payments which will be paid in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. We expect to incur additional charges of approximately $0.8 million in connection with the ceased tuxedo rental distribution operations at these four facilities in fiscal 2011.
     The following table details information related to the accrued balance recorded during the fiscal year ended January 29, 2011 related to the ceased tuxedo rental distribution operations (in thousands):

Manufacturing Facility Closure
     On March 3, 2008, we announced that Golden Brand Clothing (Canada) Ltd., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, intended to close its Montreal, Quebec-based manufacturing facility. The facility was closed on July 11, 2008.
     In fiscal 2008, we recognized retail segment pretax costs of $10.0 million for closure of the facility, including $6.6 million for severance payments, $1.1 million for the write-off of fixed assets, $1.6 million for lease termination payments and $0.7 million for other costs related to closing the facility. These charges are included in “Selling, general and administrative expenses” in our consolidated statement of earnings. No charges were recognized during fiscal 2010 or 2009. Net cash payments of $0.1 million, $1.0 million and $7.2 million related to the closure of the facility were made in fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The payments made in fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2009 for closure of the facility related to the remaining lease termination payments which were paid over the remaining term of the lease through February 2010. No amounts are included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities at January 29, 2011.

13. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
     Lease commitments
     We lease retail business locations, office and warehouse facilities, copier equipment and automotive equipment under various noncancelable capital and operating leases expiring in various years through 2027. Rent expense for operating leases for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008 was $161.7 million, $158.7 million and $158.5 million, respectively, and includes contingent rentals of $0.3 million, $0.3 million and $0.4 million, respectively. Sublease rentals of $0.7 million were received in fiscal 2010. Sublease rentals of $0.8 million were received in fiscal 2009 and 2008. The total minimum future rentals to be received under noncancelable subleases as of January 29, 2011 are $0.8 million.
     Minimum future rental payments under noncancelable capital and operating leases as of January 29, 2011 for each of the next five years and in the aggregate are as follows (in thousands):
                 
    Operating     Capital

     Leases on retail business locations specify minimum rentals plus common area maintenance charges and possible additional rentals based upon percentages of sales. Most of the retail business location leases provide for renewal options at rates specified in the leases. In the normal course of business, these leases are generally renewed or replaced by other leases.
     In February 2011, we entered into a US$1.7 million contractual obligation for the refurbishment of the primary offices for Alexandra located in Bristol, UK. This obligation, which is excluded from the table above, will be paid in fiscal 2011.
     At January 29, 2011, the gross capitalized balance and the accumulated amortization balance of our capital lease assets was $5.1 million and $2.2 million, respectively, resulting in a net capitalized value of $2.9 million. At January 30, 2010, the gross capitalized balance and the accumulated amortization balance of our capital lease assets was $4.6 million and $2.1 million, respectively, resulting in a net capitalized value of $2.5 million. Amortization expense was $0.9 million, $1.0 million and $1.4 million in fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively, and is included in depreciation expense in the consolidated statement of earnings. These assets are included in furniture, fixtures and equipment on the consolidated balance sheet. The deferred liability balance of these capital lease assets is included in deferred taxes and other liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet.

Legal matters
     On October 8, 2009, the Company was named in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. The case is styled Material Yard Workers Local 1175 Benefit Funds, et al. v. The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc., Case No. 4:09-cv-03265. The class period alleged in the complaint runs from March 7, 2007 to January 9, 2008. The primary allegations are that the Company issued false and misleading press releases regarding its guidance for fiscal year 2007 on various occasions during the alleged class period. The complaint seeks damages based on the decline in the Company’s stock price following the announcement of lowered guidance on October 10, 2007, November 28, 2007, and January 9, 2008. The case is in its early stages and discovery has not begun. The Company filed a motion to dismiss the complaint on April 12, 2010, and we are awaiting a decision from the Court. The Company believes the lawsuit is without merit and intends to mount a vigorous defense; we are unable to determine the likely outcome at this time.
     We are involved in various routine legal proceedings, including ongoing litigation, incidental to the conduct of our business. Management believes that none of these matters will have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
14. CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLE
     On August 1, 2010, we changed the method of determining cost under the lower of cost or market inventory valuation method used for our K&G brand (representing approximately 23% of our inventory) from the retail inventory method to the average cost method.
     We believe the average cost method is preferable over the retail inventory method because it results in greater precision in the determination of cost of sales and inventories. Under the average cost method, cost is computed using the actual cost of inventory purchases, while cost under the retail inventory method is determined by using imprecise estimates of inputs such as selling prices and gross margin. Additionally, this change results in a consistent inventory valuation method for all of our inventories.
     The effect of the change in accounting principle for periods prior to February 1, 2009 is not determinable as the period-specific information required to value K&G’s inventory on the average cost method is not available for periods prior to February 1, 2009. As stated in FASB guidance regarding accounting changes, when it is impracticable to determine the cumulative effect of applying a change in accounting principle to any prior period, the new accounting principle shall be applied as if the changes were made prospectively as of the earliest date practicable. Therefore, we adopted the new method of accounting for K&G’s inventory retrospectively to February 1, 2009. The effect of this change in accounting principle on inventory values as of the beginning of 2009 was an increase in inventory of $2.2 million, a decrease in deferred tax assets of $0.9 million and a net increase in retained earnings as of the beginning of 2009 of $1.3 million. The non-cash increase in the inventory balance of $2.2 million is due only to this accounting change as the underlying retail value of the inventory is not affected by this accounting change.
     Had we not changed our method of determining inventory cost for our K&G inventory in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, the impact would have been immaterial to our financial position, results of operations, cash flows and net earnings per common share attributable to the common shareholders as of and for the period ended January 29, 2011.

The cumulative effect of this change in accounting principle was recorded retrospectively as of February 1, 2009. Refer to Note 14 for additional information and disclosures.
     Due to the method of calculating weighted average common shares outstanding, the sum of the quarterly per share amounts may not equal net earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders for the respective years.
     As discussed in Note 1 under “Impairment of Long-Lived Assets,” we recognized pretax non-cash asset impairment charges related to store assets of $5.9 million ($0.2 million in the second quarter, $3.2 million in the third quarter and $2.5 million in the fourth quarter) in fiscal 2010 and $19.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
     The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s principal executive officer (“CEO”) and principal financial officer (“CFO”), evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation, the CEO and CFO have concluded that, as of the end of such period, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective to ensure that information that is required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports it files or submits under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
     Other than the events discussed under the Dimensions and Alexandra acquisitions below, there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended January 29, 2011 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
     Dimensions and Alexandra Acquisitions
     On August 6, 2010, we acquired Dimensions and Alexandra, two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the United Kingdom. For additional information regarding the acquisitions, refer to the discussion under the caption “Business” included within Item 1 in this Annual Report on Form 10-K and Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.
     On June 22, 2004, the Office of the Chief Accountant of the SEC issued guidance regarding the reporting of internal control over financial reporting in connection with a major acquisition. On October 6, 2004, the SEC revised its guidance to include expectations of quarterly reporting updates of new internal control and the status of the control regarding any exempted businesses. This guidance was reiterated in September 2007 to affirm that management may omit an assessment of an acquired business’s internal control over financial reporting from its assessment of internal control over financial reporting for a period not to exceed one year.
     We have recommended to our Audit Committee that we exclude the operations acquired in the Dimensions and Alexandra acquisitions from the scope of our Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 report on internal controls over financial reporting for the year ending January 29, 2011. We are in the process of implementing our internal control structure over the acquired operations, and expect that this effort will be completed in fiscal 2011.

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
     Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed under the supervision of our principal executive and principal financial officers, and effected by our Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
     Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate.
     Our management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of the end of our most recent fiscal year. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control — Integrated Framework. Based on such assessment, management concluded that, as of January 29, 2011, our internal control over financial reporting is effective based on those criteria. As set forth above, Management’s assessment of and conclusion on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting did not include the internal controls of Dimensions and Alexandra, acquired in August 2010, which are included in the consolidated financial statements of The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. as of and for the year ended January 29, 2011 and constituted 15.3% of total assets and 5.0% of total net sales, respectively, of our consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended January 29, 2011.
     Management’s assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of January 29, 2011 has been audited by Deloitte & Touche LLP, the independent registered public accounting firm that audited our consolidated financial statements included in this report, as stated in their report dated March 30, 2011, which follows.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of
The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc.
Houston, Texas
We have audited the internal control over financial reporting of The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of January 29, 2011, based on criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. As described in Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting, management excluded from its assessment the internal control over financial reporting at Dimensions Clothing Limited (“Dimensions”) and Alexandra plc (“Alexandra”), which were acquired on August 6, 2010 and whose financial statements constitute 15.3% of total assets and 5.0% of net sales of the consolidated financial statement amounts as of and for the year ended January 29, 2011. Accordingly, our audit did not include the internal control over financial reporting at Dimensions and Alexandra. The Company’s management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the company’s principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the company’s board of directors, management, and other personnel to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Because of the inherent limitations of internal control over financial reporting, including the possibility of collusion or improper management override of controls, material misstatements due to error or fraud may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Also, projections of any evaluation of the effectiveness of the internal control over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of January 29, 2011, based on the criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.
We have also audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated financial statements and financial statement schedule as of and for the year ended January 29, 2011 of the Company and our report dated March 30, 2011 expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements and financial statement schedule and included an explanatory paragraph relating to a change in the method of accounting for merchandise inventories at the Company’s K&G brand.
