    They are screwed. I bet there are a lot of long faces at Golden Gate Capital. Unlikely anyone else will offer the ridiculous amount that JOBS was offering.

    I love JOSB. Shop there all the time. Can't beat their deals on men's clothing, and their clothing lasts!

     

    So what's the new name going to be? Jos. A Warehouse? Men's Banks?

     

    MW should leave well enough alone.
