Ewert Departure Seen as His Decision, but Firm Ready for Next Chapter

It was Doug Ewert’s choice to leave Tailored Brands, but his departure as chief executive officer is also seen as an opportunity to get some fresh blood into the company.
That was the consensus of the men’s wear community on Wednesday as they continued to digest the surprise news late Tuesday that the longtime leader of the Fremont, Calif.-based company would be exiting at the end of September. Ewert, 54, said after the market closed on Tuesday that he would be retiring after a 23-year career with the men’s wear retailer.
Wall Street was apparently not rattled by the news since the company’s stock rose 4 percent Wednesday to close at $ 23.39.
On Wednesday, Ewert told WWD he would be open to providing more details about his decision and future plans after the company’s earnings are released on Sept. 12.
Coincidentally, the news of Ewert’s impending departure came at the same time Bruce Thorn, president and chief operating officer, said he too would be leaving Tailored Brands. Thorn, 51, has been named president and ceo of Big Lots Inc. He will assume that role at the end of September.

Destination XL Shares Down; Firm Rethinks Advertising Strategy

Destination XL Group Inc. plans to reinstitute TV advertising to grab the attention of big and tall guys after noting the elimination of a fall marketing campaign hurt fourth-quarter sales.
For the three months ended Jan. 28, net income was $ 1.8 million, or 4 cents a diluted share, against a net loss of $ 1.4 million, or 3 cents, a year ago. On an adjusted basis, diluted earnings per share were 2 cents, compared with an adjusted loss of 2 cents a year ago. Net sales slipped 1.1 percent to $ 122.6 million from $ 124 million. The company said DXL comparable-store sales were down 1.9 percent for the quarter.
Wall Street was expecting EPS of 1 cent on sales of $ 125.77 million.
Shares of Destination XL fell 4.2 percent to $ 2.30 at 11:31 a.m.
The company attributed the decline in sales to the “overall weakness in the retail environment, as well as the company decision to eliminate its fall marketing campaign.”
David Levin, president and chief executive officer, said, “Despite the 2016 retail environment being one of the most challenging in recent memory, we were very pleased to deliver strong growth in EBITDA and free cash flow.”
The company said earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization for the quarter

Beauty Firm Fisk Industries Back at MAGIC After 15-Year Absence

Beauty manufacturer Fisk Industries is heading back to MAGIC after a 15-year absence.
Steven Adler, the company’s president, said, “We do a lot of business in beauty, and we feel our products are right for the clothing industry.”
He plans to show the Difeel brand for hand cream; Hair Chemist for hair care; Dermactin TS for facial masks, and Barielle for nail care. Adler added that the company would be showing for the first time a caviar-infused hair-care line that includes a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and hair serum. Most products that Fisk plans to show at MAGIC retail between $ 5 and $ 10.
Adler said he was influenced by the expansion of beauty products at Urban Outfitters’ Anthropologie, as well as the increase of nail care and nail coloring at mom-and-pop stores. “These are all impulse items. The products lend themselves to clothing [stores] because of their customer base, and the products are not seasonal. If the stores hit the right one and the right line, it can generate extra business,” Adler said. He explained that the opportunity is great for apparel retailers to “get on top of something that’s trending.”
According to Adler, beauty accounts for 30 percent of fashion retail, and he expects
