A profit warning from Jos. A Bank (JOSB) spills over to taint other men's clothing sellers. Shares of The Men's Wearhouse (MW) are down 3.5% premarket and Casual Male (DXLG) is off 1.2%. JOSB has now lopped off 17.5% premarket after the retailer's admission that customers aren't responding to recent promotions begs the question: What's left?

    I visited this store when they had a "buy one get two free" promotion on their suits. Normally, their suits are around $200. The promotion offered a $600 suit and then two free ones. What a load of cobblers! I will never go to the store again and I suspect there are many people like me. Don't treat your customers as if they are totally stupid. That's what's next.

    If it sounds too good to be true, most likely it is. I always wondered about "Buy 1, Get 2 free"....

     

    I wonder if this is an overreaction?
