Men's Wearhouse is going to hate the way this photo plays...

…with their cus­tomer base:
[cap­tion id=“attachment_32182” align=“aligncenter” width=“450” caption=“Photo via Tweet Pic by Matt O’Brian @mattoyeah on twit­ter”][/​caption]

I guar­an­tee it.

The photo comes from this site .

I con­tacted Men’s ware­house via their Phone and Mail sup­port page at 18008516744. I talked to a nice girl named Ruby who trans­ferred me to the adver­tis­ing dept.

There was no answer there so I left a mes­sage with my phone num­ber and e-​mail con­tact. I’ll let you know if I hear back.

While you’re wait­ing feel free to kick into my Novem­ber Fundraiser, details here.

Update: Did any­body at the loca­tion con­sider that this is a National Chain?

Update 2: It’s actu­ally spelled Men’s Wear­house, cor­rected in the title

Update: Both the Atlantic and Pru­dence Payne Papers who got an Insta­lanche (con­rats)
The Atlantic reports that this is con­sis­tent with the CEO’s polit­i­cal views:

The store’s deci­sion will likely meet with approval from the cor­po­rate HQ: George Zim­mer, founder and chair­man of Men’s Wear­house, has repeat­edly donated to Demo­c­ra­tic can­di­dates in mul­ti­ple elec­tion cycles, includ­ing pro­gres­sives like 2004 pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Howard Dean and Rep. Bar­bara Lee (Calif.).

And via Pru­dence we see that they are specif­i­cally endors­ing this nation­ally:

We closed our store near Oak­land City Hall today, for one day, to express the company’s con­cern for the issue of wealth dis­par­ity in our coun­try. The issue affects our employ­ees and cus­tomers across the polit­i­cal spectrum.

The reac­tion nation­wide will deter­mine what per­cent­age the occupy move­ment actu­ally are.

For myself, I won’t be buy­ing any­thing at Men’s Wearhouse.

I guar­an­tee it.

…with their customer base:

I contacted Men’s warehouse via their Phone and Mail support page at 1-800-851-6744. I talked to a nice girl named Ruby who transferred me to the advertising dept.

There was no answer there so I left a message with my phone number and e-mail contact. I’ll let you know if I hear back.

While you’re waiting feel free to kick into my November Fundraiser, details here.

Update: Did anybody at the location consider that this is a National Chain?

Update 2: It’s actually spelled Men’s Wearhouse, corrected in the title

Update: Both the Atlantic and Prudence Payne Papers who got an Instalanche (conrats)
The Atlantic reports that this is consistent with the CEO’s political views:

The store’s decision will likely meet with approval from the corporate HQ: George Zimmer, founder and chairman of Men’s Wearhouse, has repeatedly donated to Democratic candidates in multiple election cycles, including progressives like 2004 presidential candidate Howard Dean and Rep. Barbara Lee (Calif.).

And via Prudence we see that they are specifically endorsing this nationally:

We closed our store near Oakland City Hall today, for one day, to express the company’s concern for the issue of wealth disparity in our country. The issue affects our employees and customers across the political spectrum.

The reaction nationwide will determine what percentage the occupy movement actually are.

For myself, I won’t be buying anything at Men’s Wearhouse.

I guarantee it.
