You plebes, Savile Row is the only place to buy properly tailored menswear.

I have to go to MW today to get fitted for a wedding rental. For real clothes I shop at Nordstom Rack. The suit might be last years or the year before, but when they look at my shoes they get the sense that I could in reality buy a suit from 1987 and still be updating my wardrobe.

© I've never actually seen a rock star up close and in person, unless you count Rick Sanford as a rock star, so I'll keep my eye out this afternoon for Dave

I bought two suits at MW in September and they fit and look great.  The messed up the length of the pants on the first fitting, but fixed it for free.

I have two sport coats I bought there six  years ago and a navy blazer eight years ago and all but one are in good shape.

A large part of it is just take good care of dress clothes.  Hang them up properly and dry clean on a regular basis.  It's that simple.

Men's Wearhouse. Because it's like "warehouse" but they sell stuff you "wear". That's farking genius.

Sturdy, curved hangars made especially for suits. Got a whole bunch at Goodwill yesterday at 3 for $1.

A gift card from Men's Warehouse? Wow, what a thoughtful, generous gift. And apparently he's either too much of a cheapskate, or too stupid, to mail it or deliver it himself. What an asshole.

Meh. I realize it's a franchise, so YMMV wherever you are, but I have no complaints with MW.

CSB:

When I was in my 20s, my grandmother died, and I had no idea how to handle that kind of family emergency. Grandma would have risen from her casket if I showed up at the funeral in jeans and T-shirts (No idea if that would have been a good idea or not. Zombie Gramma might have organized the Zombie Apocalypse to be successful.) so I felt I had to get my first suit to show proper respect.

Wandered into MW, told the sales guy I had no idea what I needed, and why. He saw I was in poor geek clothes, pulled me to what I guess was the cheap suit aisle, measured me, asked when my flight was (later that evening) and said he'd have the suit ready for me in 2 hours, no rush charges or such.

I don't remember the cost, but it was about half of what I expected to pay, which was good, since I was poor back then.

Like I said, YMMV, and the rush charge was likely written off as a community good will line item to ensure future business. Never happened as I'm a geek and don't wear suits. Clients are lucky if I wear a tie to our first meeting. But I don't have a problem with MW.
 
2013-01-06 10:56:01 AM
Hey, thanks, Dave. I was trying to remember the name of that store.
 
2013-01-06 11:03:52 AM

neritz: s1ugg0: 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.

Same experience here.  Never have had a problem with them.


Same here. Mr Soy shops @ MH and we've always had very good experiences with the tailoring and good service. Mr Soy is stocky, broad-chested, and wears 3 piece suits so there's usually quite a bit for the tailor to do. Maybe the skill of the tailors are too uneven from store to store so if you are unlucky you could end up with a sucky tailor who ruins your pants.

George Zimmer is an interesting guy.

From Wikipedia

Zimmer's style of corporate management (for example, the company's June 2004 nomination of spiritual guru Deepak Chopra to its board) is peculiar in the view of some, while others perceive his style as cutting-edge.[3]
Zimmer's experience caring for his mother, who died of cancer, led him to support research into the therapeutic use of MDMA,[5] and for his efforts to legalize cannabis (for instance, by making donations equaling $70,500 to support California's Proposition 19 in 2010)

I own a suit but haven't worn it in 20 years and it's probably out of style although I wouldn't know because they all look the same to me. I don't LOL at people who wear suits to work because I'm not a judgmental d-bag who thinks my clothes make me better or worse than anyone.
 
2013-01-06 12:32:13 PM
I'm confused. So he bought a gift card, and wanted MW to send it? Is the post office in his town broken or something? Wouldn't it have been nice for him to put it in an envelope all by himself with maybe a personal note? What a lazy douche.

Agreed. I would have expected, that with Dave's success, that he would have purchased a gift card that could be used to purchase real nice suit, instead of the cheap stuff offered at Men's Warehouse or Jos Banks. If he really wanted to treat the recipient he should have taken him someplace and had a custom suit made for the man.

FriarReb98: 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.


Came here to say something similar. If Metallica thinks you're too much of a prick to be in the band, you have some serious issues.

Dave Mustaine is an annoying, self-centered, bloviating twit, but I still want to hear him do covers of Tori Amos songs.
 
2013-01-06 01:14:45 PM
Never had a a problem with MW clothes or service, but which particular store you happen to wander into makes a lot of difference.  They are not all the same, no matter how much they try to make it that way.

I think Mens' Wearhouse is definitely not able to claim premium service, but yes, premium prices.

I'm with Dave on this one. I for one would not suffer seeing M.W. grovel a little bit. They need to get their act together. Too bad there's no incentive to work hard at service jobs, unless maybe you're the owner.
 
2013-01-06 03:01:32 PM
the heavy metal guitarist publicly accused Men's Wearhouse of failing to make good on its guaranteed two-day delivery of a gift card for his "awesome" tour manager.

This guy?

Also, I noticed the eagle-eyed reporters at CNN couldn't resist dragging out the old Metallica vs. Megadeth feud from the 80's. Haven't they all since made up and been in therapy or something? What was that like 30 years ago. Way to scoop that story, guys.

I've twice had to use MW for tux rentals for weddings, and both times I was severely disappointed.

#1 - They had had mixed up my tux with one from a different wedding. For some reason they had extra pants, shirt, and jacket in the right size there at the store so they could fix it, but didn't have any shoes in my size. I had to go across town to a different rental store and they still tried to charge me full price.

#2 - They shipped my tux to the wrong store. Luckily I had gotten into town a day earlier than expected, and they had enough time to overnight a new one.

I absolutely hate the fees they charge above the advertised price of the rental. I never paid so much in my life to rent a tux until those two weddings. The quality wasn't any better. After those experiences I would never step foot in their stores of my own volition.

That's what I was thinking. Any gift card I've ever bought was in store and you walk out with it. It's not like having flowers delivered for Valentine's.

Mustaine is a vastly better guitarist than Ted Nugent. Not even close. He's a better songwriter too.

Funniest quote in the article:

Mustaine was one of the original members of the heavy metal superband Metallica, but he was kicked out in 1983 after punching bandmate James Hetfield, "turning his mouth into a pile of bloody Chiclets," as Mustaine wrote in his memoir.

Hilarious.

No, but seriously, putting a delivery guarantee on your website and not abiding by it is a serious pisser. It's just that this time, it's a celebrity who got screwed.

Every man should own a black suit with two dress shirts, two ties, dress socks, and shoes.
Every woman should own 2 black dresses and some nice dress shoes, along with a nice coat.
There are weddings to attend, and funerals happen, often unexpected.
Also, no matter who is is, or what you think of him, Dude was told that his gift card would be sent, and when. They didn't perform the service he paid for.

Some Kind of Monster is the spiritual sequel to This is Spinal Tap, but Metallica didn't know they were being funny.

Seriously. Dave, you were a drunk and three-quarters - that's why you were kicked out. And how much of a mess do you have to be to get kicked out of Alcoholica? Without knowing the story, I'd be more willing to bet that one morning, Hetfield was puking blood after a long binge and Mustaine came out of his own blackout thinking he was responsible.

Also, the George Zimmer meme trolling the Ashley Simpson message boards was one of the best things about the internet in the last decade.
 
2013-01-06 09:20:58 PM
Actually, Mustaine carved out a pretty good career for himself, especially in light of his limited singing/guitar playing/songwriting ability. And Metallica would never been as successful if he remained in the band.
