"You’re going to like the way you look. I guarantee it." You sure have heard that slogan before. Men's Wearhouse Founder George Zimmer has touted it in TV commercials for years. Now the slogan is heavily used in reports about George Zimmer's firing. The Huffington Post collected 13 adaptions of the slogan published in the past hours since the news broke.
Reuters reports that the company has fired Zimmer who founded Men's Wearhouse 40 years ago.
George Zimmer reacted with this statement: "Instead of fostering the kind of dialogue in the boardroom that has, in part, contributed to our success, the board has inappropriately chosen to silence my concerns..."
Men's Wearhouse ahs over 1000 stores and had over $2 billion in sales last year.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
