Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements
     Certain statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in other public filings and press releases by the Company contain “forward-looking” information (as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995) that involves risk and uncertainty. These forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, references to future capital expenditures, acquisitions, sales, earnings, margins, costs, number and costs of store openings, demand for clothing, market trends in the retail and corporate apparel clothing business, currency fluctuations, inflation and various economic and business trends. Forward-looking statements may be made by management orally or in writing, including, but not limited to, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and other sections of our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Securities Act of 1933.
     Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and a variety of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the anticipated or expected results expressed in or suggested by these forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, actions by governmental entities, domestic and international economic activity and inflation, success, or lack thereof, in executing our internal operating plans and new store and new market expansion plans, including integration of acquisitions, performance issues with key suppliers, disruption in buying practices due to homeland security concerns, severe weather, foreign currency fluctuations, government export and import policies, aggressive advertising or marketing activities of competitors and legal proceedings. Future results will also be dependent upon our ability to continue to identify and complete successful expansions and penetrations into existing and new markets and our ability to integrate such expansions with our existing operations. Refer to “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 29, 2011 for a more complete discussion of these and other factors that might affect our performance and financial results. These forward-looking statements are intended to convey the Company’s expectations about the future, and speak only as of the date they are made.

1. Significant Accounting Policies
     Basis of Presentation — The condensed consolidated financial statements herein include the accounts of The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) and have been prepared without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). As applicable under such regulations, certain information and footnote disclosures have been condensed or omitted. We believe that the presentation and disclosures herein are adequate to make the information not misleading, and the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all elimination entries and normal recurring adjustments which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows at the dates and for the periods presented. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 29, 2011.
     The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and related disclosures. Actual amounts could differ from those estimates.
     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 13 for further segment information.
     Recent Accounting Pronouncements — In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued updated guidance regarding the presentation of comprehensive income. The updated guidance allows an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income and a total amount for comprehensive income. The update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The update does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. The guidance will be applied retrospectively and is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of this update will only impact the presentation of comprehensive income in our condensed consolidated financial statements.
     In May 2011, the FASB updated the guidance regarding certain accounting and disclosure requirements related to fair value measurements. The updated guidance amends U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) to create more commonality with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) by changing some of the wording used to describe requirements for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements. This update is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. 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.
     In January 2010, the 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

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
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 at the beginning of our 2010 fiscal year, except for the presentation of purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements, which we adopted at the beginning of our 2011 fiscal year. The adoption of this guidance did not 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 our 2011 fiscal year and is not expected 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). The adoption of this update at the beginning of our 2011 fiscal year did not 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 expand our corporate apparel operations. The results of operations for Dimensions and Alexandra have been included in the condensed 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 (in thousands).

Less: Gain on bargain purchase
          (524 )     (524 )
 
                 
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 gain on a bargain purchase of approximately $0.5 million in fiscal 2010. 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 integration costs incurred for the acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra were $0.7 million and $1.4 for the three and six months ended July 30, 2011, respectively, and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) in the condensed consolidated statement of earnings.
     For the three months ended July 30, 2011, the acquired businesses contributed net sales of $63.2 million, gross margin of $16.6 million and net earnings, including the pretax $0.7 million in integration costs, of $1.1 million to the Company’s condensed consolidated net earnings attributable to common shareholders. For the six months ended July 30, 2011, the acquired businesses contributed net sales of $117.2 million, gross margin of $31.5 million and net earnings, including the pretax $1.4 million in integration costs, of $1.2 million to the Company’s condensed consolidated net earnings attributable to common shareholders.

     The following table presents unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information as if the closing of our acquisition of Dimensions had occurred on February 1, 2009, after giving effect to certain purchase accounting adjustments (in thousands, except per share data). The acquisition of Alexandra was not material to the Company’s financial position or results of operations, therefore pro forma operating results for Alexandra have not been included below.

     This pro forma information is not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that actually would have resulted had the Dimensions acquisition occurred on the dates indicated above or that may result in the future and does not reflect potential synergies, integration costs or other such costs and savings.
     Subsequent to completion of the acquisitions, Alexandra operations were extended to The Netherlands and France through newly formed subsidiaries during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. These subsidiaries did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows as of and for the three and six months ended July 30, 2011.
3. Earnings per Share
     We calculate earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders using the two-class method in accordance with the guidance for determination of whether instruments granted in share-based payment transactions are participating securities. Our unvested restricted stock and deferred stock units contain rights to receive nonforfeitable dividends or dividend equivalents, respectively, 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.
     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 treasury stock method or the two-class method.

     The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders (in thousands, except per share amounts). Basic and diluted earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders are computed using the actual net earnings available to common shareholders and the actual weighted-average common shares outstanding rather than the rounded numbers presented within our condensed consolidated statement of earnings and the accompanying notes. As a result, it may not be possible to recalculate earnings per common share attributable to common shareholders in our condensed consolidated statement of earnings and the accompanying notes.

     For the three and six months ended July 30, 2011, 0.3 million and 0.4 million anti-dilutive stock options were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per common share, respectively. For the three and six months ended July 31, 2010, 1.0 million and 0.9 million anti-dilutive stock options were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per common share, respectively.
4. 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 then existing credit facility, which provided the Company with a revolving credit facility, 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 July 30, 2011, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Agreement.

(Unaudited)
     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 July 30, 2011.
     We utilize letters of credit primarily to secure inventory purchases and as collateral for workers compensation claims. At July 30, 2011, letters of credit totaling approximately $24.3 million were issued and outstanding. Borrowings available under our Credit Agreement at July 30, 2011 were $175.7 million.
5. Supplemental Cash Flows

     In January 2006, the Board of Directors authorized a $100.0 million share repurchase program of our common stock. This authorization superceded any remaining previous authorizations. In August 2007, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a replenishment of the Company’s share repurchase program to $100 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 the first six months of fiscal 2010. During the first six months of fiscal 2011, 1,822,340 shares at a cost of $48.8 million were repurchased at an average price per share of $26.78 under the January 2011 authorization. At July 30, 2011, the remaining balance available under the January 2011 authorization was $101.2 million. Subsequent to July 30, 2011 and through September 2, 2011, we have purchased 500,000 shares for $15.0 million at an average price per share of $29.98 under the January 2011 authorization.
     During the six months ended July 30, 2011, 7,132 shares at a cost of $0.2 million were repurchased at an average price per share of $27.77 in a private transaction to satisfy tax withholding obligations arising upon the vesting of certain restricted stock. During the six months ended July 31, 2010, 7,134 shares at a cost of $0.1 million were repurchased at an average price per share of $20.24 in a private transaction to satisfy tax withholding obligations arising upon the vesting of certain restricted stock.

9. Share-Based Compensation Plans
     We maintain several equity plans under which we may grant stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, deferred stock units and performance based awards to full-time key employees and non-employee directors. We account for share-based awards in accordance with the FASB standard regarding share-based payments, which requires the compensation cost resulting from all share-based payment transactions be recognized in the financial statements. The amount of compensation cost is measured based on the grant-date fair value of the instrument issued and is recognized over the vesting period. Share-based compensation expense recognized for the three and six months ended July 30, 2011 was $3.5 million and $6.5 million, respectively. Share-based compensation expense recognized for the three and six months ended July 31, 2010 was $3.1 million and $5.7 million, respectively.
     Stock Options
     The following table summarizes stock option activity for the six months ended July 30, 2011:

Exercisable at July 30, 2011
    758,924     $ 20.22  
 
           
     The weighted-average grant date fair value of the 131,173 stock options granted during the six months ended July 30, 2011 was $11.66 per share. The following table summarizes the weighted average assumptions used to fair value stock options at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model for the six months ended July 30, 2011:
         
Risk-free interest rate
    2.28 %
Expected lives
  5.0 years
Dividend yield
    1.79 %
Expected volatility
    53.44 %
     The assumptions presented in the table above represent the weighted average of the applicable assumptions used to fair value stock options. Expected volatility is based on historical volatility of our common stock. The expected term represents the period of time the options are expected to be outstanding after their grant date. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. 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.
     As of July 30, 2011, we have unrecognized compensation expense related to nonvested stock options of approximately $5.7 million which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.5 years.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan
     The Employee Stock Discount Plan (“ESDP”) 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 on the first day of the offering period or the fair market value on the last day of the offering period. We make no contributions to this plan but pay all brokerage, service and other costs incurred. The plan, as amended, allows participants to purchase no more than 125 shares during any calendar quarter.
     During the six months ended July 30, 2011, employees purchased 48,989 shares under the ESDP, which had a weighted-average share price of $22.38 per share. As of July 30, 2011, 1,008,077 shares were reserved for future issuance under the ESDP.

     Goodwill is evaluated for impairment annually as of our fiscal year end. 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, new 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. No additional impairment evaluation was considered necessary during the first six months of 2011.
     Intangible Assets
     The gross carrying amount and accumulated amortization of our identifiable intangible assets are as follows (in thousands):

11. 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. We adopted the second phase of the enhanced disclosure requirements for fair value measurements effective January 30, 2011. Refer to Note 1. There were no transfers into or out of Level 1 and Level 2 during the three and six months ended July 30, 2011 or July 31, 2010, respectively, or 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 condensed 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 condensed consolidated balance sheets. Derivative financial instruments in a liability position are included within accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. Refer to Note 12 for further information regarding our derivative instruments.
     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. For the three and six months ended July 30, 2011, we recorded charges for the impairment of long-lived assets of $1.0 million which is included within SG&A in our condensed consolidated statement of earnings. The asset impairment charges reduced the carrying amounts of the applicable long-lived assets, primarily leasehold improvements for certain Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores, to their fair values of $0.1 million as of July 30, 2011. For the three and six months ended July 31, 2010, we recorded charges for the impairment of long-lived assets of $0.2 million which is included within SG&A in our condensed consolidated statement of earnings. The asset impairment charges reduced the carrying amounts of the applicable long-lived assets to their fair values of $0.2 million as of July 31, 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 current maturities of long-term debt. Management estimates that, as of July 30, 2011, July 31, 2010 and January 29, 2011, 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 fair value of current maturities of long-term debt at July 31, 2010 approximate their carrying amounts based upon terms available to us for borrowings with similar arrangements and remaining maturities.

12. 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. During the second quarter of fiscal 2010, we had designated as and accounted for our foreign exchange forward contracts as cash flow hedges. Beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company no longer designates and accounts for foreign exchange forward contracts as cash flow hedges and has not elected to apply hedge accounting to these transactions denominated in a foreign currency.
     Our derivative financial instruments are recorded in the condensed 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 tables below disclose the fair value of the derivative financial instruments included in the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of July 30, 2011, January 29, 2011 and July 31, 2010.

     At July 30, 2011, we had two contracts to purchase euros for an aggregate notional amount of US$1.0 million maturing in various increments at various dates through October 2011, six contracts to purchase United States dollars (“USD”) for an aggregate notional amount of Canadian dollars (“CAD”) $6.1 million maturing in various increments at various dates through December 2011 and 34 contracts to purchase USD for an aggregate notional amount of pounds Sterling (“GBP”) £11.9 million maturing in various increments at various dates through November 2011. For the three and six months ended July 30, 2011, we recognized a net pretax loss of $0.8 million and $1.5 million, respectively, in cost of sales in the condensed consolidated statement of earnings for our derivative financial instruments not designated as hedging instruments.
     At January 29, 2011, we had six contracts to purchase euros for an aggregate notional amount of US$3.8 million maturing in various increments at various dates through October 2011, 10 contracts to purchase USD for an aggregate notional amount of CAD $5.8 million maturing in various increments at various dates through May 2011 and 70 contracts to purchase USD for an aggregate notional amount of GBP £27.6 million maturing in various increments at various dates through September 2011.
     At July 31, 2010, we had three contracts maturing in varying increments to purchase an aggregate notional amount of $2.9 million in foreign currency, maturing at various dates through March 2011. No amounts were recorded in our results of operations for the six months ended July 31, 2010 as a result of hedge ineffectiveness, hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness or the discontinuance of cash flow hedges because the forecasted transactions were no longer probable. As of July 31, 2010, accumulated other comprehensive income included an unrealized gain of approximately $0.1 million, net of tax, which was subsequently recognized in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 as a reduction to cost of sales. No amounts were reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income to earnings for the six months ended July 31, 2010.
     We had no derivative financial instruments with credit-risk-related contingent features underlying the agreements as of July 30, 2011, January 29, 2011 or July 31, 2010, respectively.
13. 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 includes suits, suit separates, sport coats, pants, shoes, shirts, sportswear, outerwear and accessories for men. Ladies’ career apparel, sportswear and accessories, including shoes, are 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.

14. 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 was 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 ran from March 7, 2007 to January 9, 2008. The primary allegations were 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 sought damages based on the decline in the Company’s stock price following the announcement of lowered guidance on Oct. 10, 2007, Nov. 28, 2007, and Jan. 9, 2008. The Company filed a motion to dismiss on April 12, 2010. On July 22, 2011, the Court dismissed the lawsuit without leave to amend, and the plaintiff did not appeal the dismissal.
     We are involved in various routine legal proceedings, including ongoing litigation, incidental to the conduct of our business. Management does not believe that any of these matters will have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

ITEM 2 — MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
General
     For supplemental information, it is suggested that “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” be read in conjunction with the corresponding section included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 29, 2011. References herein to years are to our 52-week or 53-week fiscal year which ends on the Saturday nearest January 31 in the following calendar year. For example, references to “2011” mean the 52-week fiscal year ending January 28, 2012.
     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 and www.kgstores.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 expand 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 condensed 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 $79.8 million and $18.0 million, respectively, totaling $97.8 million (£61 million), and was funded through the Company’s cash on hand. Refer to Note 2 of Notes to Condensed 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 13 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information and disclosures regarding our reportable segments and the discussion included in “Results of Operations” below.

     We had revenues of $655.5 million and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $57.1 million for the quarter ended July 30, 2011, compared to revenues of $537.0 million and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $43.0 million for the quarter ended July 31, 2010. We had revenues of $1,235.9 million and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $84.5 million for the six months ended July 30, 2011, compared to revenues of $1,010.5 million and net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $56.5 million for the six months ended July 31, 2010. We increased our revenues by $118.5 million or 22.1% and our gross margin by $49.0 million or 18.8% for the second quarter of 2011 as compared to the same prior year period. We increased our revenues by $225.5 million or 22.3% and our gross margin by $94.6 million or 20.5% for the first six months of 2011 as compared to the same prior year period. The acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010 contributed $63.2 million of the increased revenues and $16.6 million of the increased gross margin for the quarter ended July 30, 2011 and $117.2 million of the increased revenues and $31.5 million of the increased gross margin for the six months ended July 30, 2011. We closed 21 stores (one Men’s Wearhouse store, two K&G stores and 18 Men’s Wearhouse & Tux stores), of which ten had reached the end of their lease terms, and opened seven Men’s Wearhouse stores during the first six months of 2011. Our businesses experienced improvement in both sales and profitability during the second quarter and first six months of 2011, as compared to the prior year periods, but we expect general economic conditions to remain difficult in 2011 as high unemployment levels and the overall economic health could negatively impact consumer confidence and the level of consumer discretionary spending. We plan to continue our 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.
     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.

     The Company’s total net sales increased $118.5 million, or 22.1%, to $655.5 million for the quarter ended July 30, 2011 as compared to the same prior year quarter. Total corporate apparel clothing product sales increased $64.9 million due mainly to $63.2 million in sales from the Dimensions and Alexandra operations acquired on August 6, 2010. Total retail sales increased $53.7 million, or 10.1%, to $586.0 million due mainly to a $44.2 million increase in retail clothing product revenues and a $5.8 million increase in tuxedo rental services revenues, and is attributable to the following:
         
(in millions)   Amount Attributed to
$ 44.0    
Increase in comparable sales.
  6.8    
Increase in e-commerce, alteration and other services sales.
  5.2    
Increase from net sales of stores opened in 2010, relocated stores and expanded stores not yet included in comparable sales.
  1.4    
Increase in net sales from seven new stores opened in 2011.
  (8.9 )  
Decrease in net sales resulting from closed stores.
  5.2    
Increase in net sales resulting from change in U.S./Canadian dollar exchange rate.
 
$ 53.7    
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 10.9% at Men’s Wearhouse/Men’s Wearhouse and Tux, 4.4% at Moores and 5.4% at K&G. The increases were primarily due to increased retail clothing product sales which increased $44.2 million or 12.4%. Increases at Men’s Wearhouse/Men’s Wearhouse and Tux were driven by increased units sold per transaction and increased store traffic levels that more than offset a decrease in average unit retails (net selling prices). Increases at K&G were driven by increased average unit retails and units sold per transaction that more than offset a decrease in store traffic levels. At Moores, the increases resulted from increased units sold per transaction that more than offset decreases in average unit retails and store traffic levels. Tuxedo rental service revenues increased $5.8 million or 4.1% due mainly to an increase in paid units rented associated with the shift in the occurrence of Easter in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Exchange rate changes from a stronger Canadian dollar also caused total retail sales for fiscal 2011 to be $5.2 million more than the comparable prior year sales.
     The Company’s gross margin was as follows:

Total gross margin
    47.2 %     48.5 %
 
         
     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.
     In the retail segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales increased from 48.6% in the second quarter of 2010 to 49.7% in the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to improved tuxedo rental services margins and a lower occupancy margin, offset slightly by a decrease in retail clothing product margin and alteration and other services margin. On an absolute dollar basis total retail segment gross margin increased $32.2 million or 12.4% from the same prior year quarter to $291.2 million in the second quarter of 2011.

gross margin decreased from 56.1% in the second quarter of 2010 to 55.5% in the second quarter of 2011 due primarily to more aggressive promotional offerings in the 2011 second quarter compared to 2010. The tuxedo rental services gross margin increased from 84.5% in the second quarter of 2010 to 86.4% in the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to a decrease in per unit rental costs in 2011. Occupancy costs, 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 13.1% in the second quarter of 2010 to 11.7% in the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to fewer open stores in 2011, reduced depreciation following impairment charges taken in 2010 and cost leverage from increased sales.
     In the corporate apparel segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales decreased from 27.8% in the second quarter of 2010 to 26.0% in the second quarter of 2011 due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010.
     Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) increased to $220.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 from $191.2 million in the second quarter of 2010, an increase of $29.1 million or 15.2%. As a percentage of total net sales, these expenses decreased from 35.6% in the second quarter of 2010 to 33.6% in the second quarter of 2011. The components of this 2.0% net decrease in SG&A expenses as a percentage of total net sales and the related absolute dollar changes were as follows:

Decrease in advertising expense as a percentage of sales from 4.3% in the second quarter of 2010 to 3.3% in the second quarter of 2011. On an absolute dollar basis, advertising expense decreased $1.7 million.
  (1.6 )  
Decrease in store salaries as a percentage of sales from 13.6% in the second quarter of 2010 to 12.0% in the second quarter of 2011. Store salaries on an absolute dollar basis increased $5.6 million primarily due to increased commissions associated with increased sales.
  0.6    
Increase in other SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales from 17.7% in the second quarter of 2010 to 18.3% in the second quarter of 2011. On an absolute dollar basis, other SG&A expenses increased $25.2 million primarily due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010, increased payroll related costs, increased expenses associated with increased sales and approximately $1.0 million in non-cash asset impairment charges taken in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

     In the retail segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales decreased from 35.0% in the second quarter of 2010 to 34.6% in the second quarter of 2011. On an absolute dollar basis, retail segment SG&A expenses increased $16.7 million primarily due to increased stores salaries, payroll related costs, and other expenses associated with increased sales and approximately $1.0 million in non-cash asset impairment charges taken in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, offset by a decrease in advertising expense.
     In the corporate apparel segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales decreased from 103.9% in the second quarter of 2010 to 24.8% in the second quarter of 2011 due primarily to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010. On an absolute dollar basis, corporate apparel segment SG&A expenses increased $12.4 million primarily due to 2011 second quarter expenses of $14.5 million associated with our 2010 UK-based acquisitions.
     Corporate apparel segment operating income of $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2011 includes $0.7 million in integration costs incurred during the quarter and $1.2 million of operating losses in the U.S.
     Our effective income tax rate was 35.5% for the second quarter of 2011 and 37.6% for the second quarter of 2010. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2011 was higher than the statutory U.S. federal rate of 35% due mainly to state income taxes, offset partially by lower foreign statutory tax rates imposed on our foreign operations. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2010 was higher than the statutory U.S. federal rate primarily due to the unfavorable tax rate effect from state income taxes.
     These factors resulted in net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $57.1 million or 8.7% of net sales for the second quarter of 2011, compared with net earnings of $43.0 million or 8.0% of net sales for the second quarter of 2010.

     The Company’s total net sales increased $225.5 million, or 22.3%, to $1,235.9 million for the six months ended July 30, 2011 as compared to the same prior year period. Total corporate apparel clothing product sales increased $120.9 million due mainly to $117.2 million in sales from the Dimensions and Alexandra operations acquired on August 6, 2010. Total retail sales increased $104.6 million, or 10.4%, to $1,106.7 million due mainly to an $89.8 million increase in retail clothing product revenues and a $6.8 million increase in tuxedo rental services revenues, and is attributable to the following:
         
(in millions)     Amount Attributed to
 
$ 86.3    
Increase in comparable sales.
  14.5    
Increase in e-commerce, alteration and other services sales.
  10.8    
Increase from net sales of stores opened in 2010, relocated stores and expanded stores not yet included in comparable sales.
  1.7    
Increase in net sales from seven new stores opened in 2011.
  (16.5 )  
Decrease in net sales resulting from closed stores.
  7.8    
Increase in net sales resulting from change in U.S./Canadian dollar exchange rate.
 
$ 104.6    
Increase in total retail sales.
 
     Comparable store sales increased 10.8% at Men’s Wearhouse/Men’s Wearhouse and Tux, 5.0% at Moores and 7.5% at K&G. These increases were primarily due to increased retail clothing product sales which increased $89.8 million or 12.4%. Increases at Men’s Wearhouse/Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores were driven by increased units sold per transaction that more than offset a decrease in average unit retails. Increases at K&G were driven by increased average unit retails and units sold per transaction. Tuxedo rental service revenues increased $6.8 million or 3.2% due mainly to higher average rental rates in the U.S. and an increase in paid units rented. Exchange rate changes from a stronger Canadian dollar also caused total retail sales for fiscal 2011 to be $7.8 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.
     In the retail segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales increased from 45.8% in the first six months of 2010 to 47.1% in the first six months of 2011 primarily due to improved tuxedo rental services margins, improved alteration and other services margins and a lower occupancy margin, offset slightly by a decrease in retail clothing product margin. On an absolute dollar basis total retail segment gross margin increased $62.1 million or 13.5% from the same prior year period to $521.2 million in the first six months of 2011. Retail clothing product gross margin decreased from 55.5% in the first six months of 2010 to 54.9% in the first six months of 2011 due primarily to more aggressive promotional offerings in the first six months of fiscal 2011 compared to 2010. The tuxedo rental services gross margin increased from 84.5% in the first six months of 2010 to 86.5% in the first six months of 2011 primarily due to a decrease in per unit rental costs in 2011. The gross margin for alteration and other services increased from 25.6% in the first six months of 2010 to 26.7% in the first six months of 2011 mainly as a result of increased alteration sales associated with increased retail clothing product sales in 2011

and cost leverage from these increased sales. Occupancy costs, 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 13.9% in the first six months of 2010 to 12.3% in the first six months of 2011 primarily due to fewer open stores in 2011, reduced depreciation following impairment charges taken in 2010 and cost leverage from increased sales.
     In the corporate apparel segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales increased from 26.2% in the first six months of 2010 to 26.8% in the first six months of 2011 due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010.
     Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $423.2 million in the first six months of 2011 from $370.8 million in the first six months of 2010, an increase of $52.4 million or 14.1%. As a percentage of total net sales, these expenses decreased from 36.7% in the first six months of 2010 to 34.2% in the first six months of 2011. The components of this 2.5% net decrease in SG&A expenses as a percentage of total net sales and the related absolute dollar changes were as follows:

  (1.2 )  
Decrease in advertising expense as a percentage of sales from 4.4% in the first six months of 2010 to 3.2% in the first six months of 2011. On an absolute dollar basis, advertising expense decreased $5.0 million.
  (1.8 )  
Decrease in store salaries as a percentage of sales from 14.1% in the first six months of 2010 to 12.3% in the first six months of 2011. Store salaries on an absolute dollar basis increased $9.4 million primarily due to increased commissions associated with increased sales.
  0.5    
Increase in other SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales from 18.2% in the first six months of 2010 to 18.7% in the first six months of 2011. On an absolute dollar basis, other SG&A expenses increased $48.0 million primarily due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010, increased payroll related costs, increased expenses associated with increased sales and approximately $1.0 million in non-cash asset impairment charges taken in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

     In the retail segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales decreased from 36.3% in the first six months of 2010 to 35.1% in the first six months of 2011. On an absolute dollar basis, retail segment SG&A expenses increased $24.4 million primarily due to increased stores salaries, payroll related costs, and other expenses associated with increased sales and approximately $1.0 million in non-cash asset impairment charges taken in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, offset by a decrease in advertising expense.
     In the corporate apparel segment, SG&A expenses as a percentage of related net sales decreased from 85.2% in the first six months of 2010 to 27.1% in the first six months of 2011 due primarily to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra on August 6, 2010. On an absolute dollar basis, corporate apparel segment SG&A expenses increased $28.0 million primarily due to 2011 first half expenses of $29.6 million associated with our 2010 UK-based acquisitions.
     Corporate apparel segment operating loss of $0.4 million for the first six months of 2011 includes $1.4 million in integration costs incurred during the period and $2.3 million of operating losses in the U.S.
     Our effective income tax rate was 36.1% for the first six months of 2011 and 37.2% for the first six months of 2010. The effective tax rate for the first six months of 2011 was higher than the statutory U.S. federal rate of 35% due mainly to state income taxes, offset partially by lower foreign statutory tax rates imposed on our foreign operations. The effective tax rate for the first six months of 2010 was higher than the statutory U.S. federal rate due mainly to state income taxes that were partially offset by benefits resulting from the conclusion of certain income tax audits.
     These factors resulted in net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $84.5 million or 6.8% of net sales for the first six months of 2011, compared with net earnings of $56.5 million or 5.6% of net sales for the first six months of 2010.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
     At July 30, 2011, January 29, 2011 and July 31, 2010, cash and cash equivalents totaled $162.3 million, $136.4 million and $281.5 million, respectively. We had working capital of $535.8 million, $497.4 million and $516.2 million at July 30, 2011, January 29, 2011 and July 31, 2010, respectively. Our primary sources of working capital are cash flows from operations and borrowings under our Credit Agreement. The $38.4 million increase in working capital at July 30, 2011 compared to January 29, 2011 resulted mainly from net earnings adjusted for non-cash charges and increased inventories, which more than offset the purchases of treasury stock made during the first six months of 2011.
     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 expand our corporate apparel operations. The operating results of Dimensions and Alexandra have been included in the condensed 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 then existing credit facility, which provided the Company with a revolving credit facility, 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 July 30, 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 July 30, 2011.
     We utilize letters of credit primarily to secure inventory purchases and as collateral for workers compensation claims. At July 30, 2011, letters of credit totaling approximately $24.3 million were issued and outstanding. Borrowings available under our Credit Agreement at July 30, 2011 were $175.7 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 $122.0 million in the first six months of 2011, due mainly to net earnings, adjusted for non-cash charges, increases in income taxes payable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities and a decrease in other assets, offset by increases in inventories and tuxedo rental product. During the first six months of 2010, our operating activities provided net cash of $130.3 million, due mainly to net earnings, adjusted for non-cash charges, a decrease in inventories and an increase in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities, offset by increases in tuxedo rental product and a decrease in income taxes payable. The increase in inventories during the first six months of 2011 was primarily due to increased retail sales and planned promotions in the second half of fiscal 2011. The decrease in inventories during the first six months of 2010 was primarily due to lower inventory purchases as a result of decreased clothing sales in 2009 and our continued efforts in 2010 to align our inventory purchases with sales expectations. Tuxedo rental product increased in each of the periods to support the continued growth of our tuxedo rental business and to replenish retired rental product. The increases in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the first six months of 2011 and 2010 were primarily due to the timing of vendor payments and the seasonal increase in tuxedo rental deposits. The decrease in other assets and the increase in income taxes payable in the first six months of 2011 and the decrease in income taxes payable in the first six months of 2010 were due to the timing and amounts of required tax payments.
     Investing activities — Our cash outflows from investing activities are primarily for capital expenditures. During the first six months of 2011 and 2010, our investing activities used net cash of $38.2 million and $25.8 million, respectively, primarily for capital expenditures of $38.3 million and $25.9 million for the first six months of 2011 and 2010, respectively. Our capital expenditures relate to costs incurred for stores opened, remodeled or relocated during the period or under construction at the end of the period, office and distribution facility additions and infrastructure technology investments.
     Financing activities — Our cash outflows from financing activities consist primarily of cash dividend payments and purchases of treasury shares, while cash inflows from financing activities consist primarily of proceeds from the issuance of common stock. During the first six months of 2011, our financing activities used net cash of $58.7 million due mainly to the purchase of treasury shares of $49.0 million and cash dividends paid of $12.7 million, offset by $4.6 million proceeds from the issuance of common stock. Our financing activities used net cash of $10.2 million for the first six months of 2010, due mainly to cash dividends paid of $9.5 million.
     Share repurchase program — In January 2006, the Board of Directors authorized a $100.0 million share repurchase program of our common stock. This authorization superceded any remaining previous authorizations. In August 2007, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a replenishment of the Company’s share repurchase program to $100 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 the first six months of fiscal 2010. During the first six months of fiscal 2011, 1,822,340 shares for $48.8 million at an average price per share of $26.78 were repurchased under the January 2011 authorization. At July 30, 2011, the remaining balance available under the January 2011 authorization was $101.2 million. Subsequent to July 30, 2011 and through September 2, 2011, we have purchased 500,000 shares for $15.0 million at an average price per share of $29.98 under the January 2011 authorization.
     During the first six months ended July 30, 2011, 7,132 shares at a cost of $0.2 million were repurchased at an average price per share of $27.77 in a private transaction to satisfy tax withholding obligations arising upon the vesting of certain restricted stock. During the first six months ended July 31, 2010, 7,134 shares at a cost of $0.1 million were repurchased at an average price per share of $20.24 in a private transaction to satisfy tax withholding obligations arising upon the vesting of certain restricted stock.

     Dividends — Cash dividends paid were approximately $12.7 million and $9.5 million for the six months ended July 30, 2011 and July 31, 2010, respectively.
     In June 2011, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share payable on September 23, 2011 to shareholders of record at close of business on September 13, 2011. The dividend payout is estimated to be approximately $6.3 million and is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of July 30, 2011.
Future cash flow
     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 commitments and obligations, as they arise.
     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 $175.7 million as of July 30, 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 two 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.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
     The preparation of our condensed 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. There have been no significant changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates as discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2011.

ITEM 3 — QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
     Market risks relating to our operations result primarily from changes in foreign currency exchange rates and changes in interest rates. There have been no material changes to our market risks as disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 29, 2011. Refer to Notes 11 and 12 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for disclosures on our investments and derivative financial instruments and Note 4 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for disclosures regarding our Credit Agreement.
ITEM 4 — 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 Controls 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 July 30, 2011 that have materially affected, or are 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 Note 2 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” included in Item 2 in this Quarterly Report.
     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 excluded 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 ended 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.

     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 was 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 ran from March 7, 2007 to January 9, 2008. The primary allegations were 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 sought damages based on the decline in the Company’s stock price following the announcement of lowered guidance on Oct. 10, 2007, Nov. 28, 2007, and Jan. 9, 2008. The Company filed a motion to dismiss on April 12, 2010. On July 22, 2011, the Court dismissed the lawsuit without leave to amend, and the plaintiff did not appeal the dismissal.
     We are involved in various routine legal proceedings, including ongoing litigation, incidental to the conduct of our business. Management does not believe that any of these matters will have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
ITEM 1A — RISK FACTORS
     There have been no material changes in our risk factors from those disclosed in Item 1A contained in Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2011.
