He said he purchased the gift card at aMen's Wearhousein Salt Lake City before Christmas, and nine days later, it still hadn't been delivered to his tour manager. He went so far as to suggest that suit-wearing headbangers take their business toJoS. A Bank Clothier

Men's Wearhouse and JoS. A Bank aren't in the same league, or the same price range.  You hit Men's Wearhouse for cheap dress shirts and the occasional cheap suit.  You hit Jos A. Bank for stuff you want to keep for a while.

I got a JAB leather jacket as a Christmas present two years ago (was $700 at the time) and one of the snaps broke on the cuff two months ago.  I took it back into another store to get it fixed, and they gave me a new jacket right then and there for no cost.  Men's Wearhouse won't do that.  Frankly, I would have accepted up to a month to fix the snap, but they didn't even bother.  So hey, new jacket.

The last pants I bought at Men's Wearhouse weren't hemmed properly, and they wanted to charge me another $15 per pair to fix their own mistake.

Man, you sometimes forget that all the head-bangers are just aging white-collar dudes at repetitive office jobs that happen to involve guitars. And then occasionally an article like this, or the picture of the '90s grunge dude in the capris at a mall, comes up and you're reminded suddenly that you (or possibly just your tastes) are old as hell and no longer cool.

The last (and I mean the LAST) pair of pants I got at MW were at least 2 1/2" short in the legs and the inseam was cut for a 9 year old boy. They said it would take another week to fix plus an extra charge, so I just said no thanks. It was back to Brooks Brothers for me. I never had a problem there except for my checkbook being very light after leaving the store - but you get what you pay for. Brooks Bros. may not be the hippest place to buy your suits, but they'll last for more than one season.

"I really think that it sucks when people make false claims, that they don't care to make good on a problem that is clearly their fault, and with all of the 'ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE IT' crap I just had to say something," wrote Mustaine.

Is it about the abysmal uncomfortable plastic shoes that come with rental tuxes? Those make me hate life.
 
2013-01-06 08:05:26 AM  
Had to rent a tux there for my brothers wedding. Awful awful suits and service. My father's vest was an irregular or something, it kept moving to one side. My 2 yr old nephew needed the sleeves adjusted, the biatch put 4 stitches in it, when he put his arm into the sleeve, he got caught in the gaps where additional stitches should have been. The had me try on a sized jacket and it fit, went up to NY to pick it up, too small.

fark that jew and his slogan.
 
2013-01-06 08:10:09 AM  
I haven't ever had your horror stories, because I've never shopped there.

Some of my best looking suits actually come from "Burlington Coat Factory" and cost less than $200. Took them to a competent tailor in Tustin, and the suits look like a million bucks.

OK I've been on Fark for a long time, but I have to say this is the least relevant article I have ever read. I can't even explain the level of WHO CARES inherent to this story.

I didn't think it was possible to read a story so non-germane it actually made me disoriented, but it happened.
 
2013-01-06 08:25:26 AM  
I don't get the joke. Was this a gag gift? That would be like giving someone a gift certificate to Earl Scheib to get their car painted (back when Earl Scheib was still a thing).

I see a lot of complaints from people about the Men's Warehouse. Maybe I'm lucky but the one by me is great. Reasonable prices, nice suits, and the one time they messed up a hem they fixed it for free. They also do alterations in less than 2 days. Most of the time the same day.

Ancestors' blood in battle they've shed.

In the land of the free, and the home of the brave
D, for your dying
O, your overture
M, they'll cover your grave with manure

This spells out freedom, it means nothing to me

That one's a classic. Well-played.

Smrt people such as myself shop for dress clothes at thrift shops. Know what to look for and get to know a tailor and a cobbler.

What I really want to know is if Doofus Dave has gone through ANY channels to resolve it, or did he just start flaming away? If he started bashing them without trying to resolve this first, then he needs to JUST STFU. Shiat happens Dave, and sometimes those last minute generic gifts that you get when you can't be bothered to find out what the recipient actually wants don't get processed correctly. Normal people contact the company first.

Jos A Bank does not seem to be benefiting much from Mustaine's endorsement. How very odd.files.myopera.com

Just remember, this is the same person who was too farked up in the head to be in Burton-era Metallica.

That right there is a special level of crazy, folks.

i've never seen him play one of those double-guitar things and i've seen megadeth in concert like 6 times. what song would require him to play one? i'm curious.

I have shopped at both in many different cities. MW certainly is not cheap in price or quality IMHO, unless you consider an average price of $89 for a casual dress shirt inexpensive. I own 12 suits, 8 of which are MW, 4 JAB. Both are quality and have lasted for over 5 yrs. I own several buttoned casual dress shirts from both.

MW sends more rewards coupons and specials to customers than JAB. MW caters to a more trendy young style whereas JAB has more waspy stuff, but I like BOTH. Slight edge to JAB on customer service when problems arise, but MW has better customer service for in store shopping.  Slight edge to JAB on durability of ties, but only slight.

Why didn't he just send it to the tour manager himself? Seriously if it is a large amount, certify and insure that shiat via USPS or FedEx. The guy would've gotten it in time to open on Christmas.

The only stores I would ever remotely trust in that case are the high end places (Neiman, Nordstrom etc) that cater to their customers and basically do everything for them customer service wise short of wiping their ass.
 
2013-01-06 09:48:02 AM  
Is it just me or is anyone else hoping for a blizzard of biblical proportions to hit when he is near a MW?
