Shalov Stone Bonner & Rocco LLP Announces Class Action Against Men's Wearhouse Inc.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - Shalov Stone Bonner & Rocco LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the purchasers of the common stock of Men's Wearhouse Inc. ("Men's Wearhouse" or the "Company") (NYSE: MW) between March 7, 2007 and January 9, 2008, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

According to the complaint, defendants made false and misleading statements concerning Men's Wearhouse's financial condition, business and prospects. The complaint alleges that the statements were false and misleading because they did not disclose the following adverse facts: (i) that the K&G division was performing badly and was failing to meet internal expectations; (ii) that the Company was experiencing considerable problems integrating the After Hours acquisition, which was resulting in a serious disruption in that division's business and was reducing sales volumes below budgeted levels; (iii) that as a result of a decreasing demand for the Company's products, it was being forced to discount its products beyond its regular discounts, which would further erode earnings; and (iv) based on the above, defendants did not have a reasonable basis for their positive statements regarding the Company's guidance and prospects.

The complaint further alleges that as the truth about the Company's financial condition was revealed to the public, the price of its common stock began to decline. On January 9, 2008, the Company announced its mid fourth quarter update for the quarter ending February 2, 2008, which disclosed its reduced guidance for fiscal 2007. On this news, the price of the Company's common stock plummeted 30%.
