Mens Warehouse

From the Fool:

I admire the company because it knows customer service and knows how to sell. It's nearly impossible to walk out with just a suit or sport coat. From ties to slacks to outerwear to socks, these people know how to get men to pony up for the full assortment.

The company appears to have hit a wall this year with the acquisition of After-Hours Formal Wear, but it looks to me like a temporary setback. Tuxedo rental is a solid fit with the company's core business, and it's a retail niche that's comprised of small local or regional players -- ripe pickings for a niche-dominant player. At a P/E of less than 10, this stock appears to have a lot more upside than downside.
