‘Memba the Men’s Wearhouse pitchman who had those iconic commercials guaranteeing satisfaction? Well, he’s still makin’ the same promises … almost word-for-word, but for his new company.
George Zimmer — the founder of MW, who got booted from the company back in 2013 — is now the face of Generation Tux … another retail startup he launched that specializes in tuxedos for men. Sound familiar? Yeah … that ain’t the only thing, trust us.
Zimmer’s GT ads feature VERY similar language to the ones he doled out for Men’s Wearhouse, once upon a time. You know the commercials we’re talking about … we guarantee it!!!
In case you hadn’t heard, Zimmer was essentially forced out of his original company by the board of directors after a new regime came on board, and they couldn’t see eye-to-eye. They said they’d fired him, but he insisted he resigned, at the time. Who knows?
It’s not news that ol’ George started Generation Tux … that’s been established for years now. What’s hilarious is his ads are still running on TV — we spotted one on ESPN this morning — and they continue to feature almost the exact same lines he made famous.
Old grudges die hard it seems. Lookin’ good there, Georgie.
