1. Significant Accounting Policies  


Basis of Presentation — The condensed consolidated financial statements herein include the accounts of Tailored Brands, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the "Company") and have been prepared without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").  As applicable under such regulations, certain information and footnote disclosures have been condensed or omitted.  We believe the presentation and disclosures herein are adequate to make the information not misleading, and the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all elimination entries and normal recurring adjustments which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows at the dates and for the periods presented.


Our business results historically have fluctuated throughout the year and, as a result, the operating results of the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 3, 2018.


Unless the context otherwise requires, "Company", "we", "us" and "our" refer to Tailored Brands, Inc. and its subsidiaries.


The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("U.S. GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and related disclosures.  Actual amounts could differ from those estimates.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements — We have considered all new accounting pronouncements and have concluded there are no new pronouncements that may have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flows, based on current information, except for those listed below. 


In August 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging: Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities. ASU 2017-12 amends the existing hedge accounting model in order to enable entities to better portray the economics of their risk management activities in their financial statements. ASU 2017-12 is effective for public companies for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years.  The guidance must be applied on a modified retrospective basis, while presentation and disclosure requirements set forth under ASU 2017-12 are required prospectively in all interim periods and fiscal years ending after the date of adoptionEarly adoption of ASU 2017-12 is permitted.  We do not expect the adoption of ASU 2017-12 to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases.  ASU 2016-02 increases transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements.  The main difference between previous U.S. GAAP and ASU 2016-02 is the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under previous U.S. GAAP. ASU 2016-02 is effective for public companies for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years.  Early adoption of ASU 2016-02 is permitted.  In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, Leases - Targeted Improvements, that provided a practical expedient that removed the requirement to restate prior period financial statements upon adoption of the standard, which we plan to elect.  We have completed our review of the guidance and have made progress in our assessment phase including finalizing the practical expedient and accounting policy elections we will make upon adoption. Furthermore, we have selected a lease accounting system and are implementing processes and controls around that system to enable the preparation of the required financial information for this standard. While we are still evaluating the impact ASU 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, we expect that it will result in a significant increase in our long-term assets and liabilities given we have a considerable number of operating leases.
