California-based Men's Wearhouse says it has dismissed its founder and executive chairman George Zimmer. In a terse release issued today, the company didn't give a reason for the abrupt firing of Zimmer, who founded the chain in 1973. It said that the board expects to discuss with Zimmer the extent, if any, and terms of ``his ongoing relationship'' with the company.
Zimmer was seen as the face of the company, appearing in many of its TV commercials with the slogan, ``You're going to like the way you look. I guarantee it.''
