Doug Ewert, Tailored Brands CEO, commented:

We are pleased to report positive comparable sales for all of our retail brands this quarter.  We executed well on growing our custom business and on increasing transactions through brand marketing campaigns and enhanced omni-channel initiatives. I am also pleased with the progress we are making to move to a leaner, more efficient inventory model, which is particularly important as custom clothing becomes a larger percentage of our mix.  With leaner inventories, we can improve the customer experience and free-up working capital.
