On June 11, 2014, The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. (the "Company") announced that it has agreed to sell $600 million aggregate principal amount of its 7.00% senior notes due 2022 (the "Notes") in a private offering (the "Notes Offering"). The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Notes Offering to finance a portion of the approximately $1.8 billion purchase price for the Company's previously announced acquisition of Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Inc. A copy of the press release, dated June 11, 2014, announcing the pricing of the Notes Offering is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Notes will mature on July 1, 2022. The Company's obligations under the Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed on an unsecured basis by the Company's direct and indirect wholly-owned U.S. subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions. The Notes Offering is expected to be completed on June 18, 2014, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions.

The Notes and the related guarantees have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the Act or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 and applicable state securities laws. This Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes and the related guarantees in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
