15. Segment Reporting
Our operations are conducted in two reportable segments, retail and corporate apparel, based on the way we manage, evaluate and internally report our business activities.
The retail segment includes the results from our four retail merchandising brands: Men's Wearhouse/Men's Wearhouse and Tux, Jos. A. Bank, Moores Clothing for Men ("Moores") and K&G. These four brands are operating segments that have been aggregated into the retail reportable segment. MW Cleaners is also aggregated in the retail segment as these operations have not had a significant effect on our revenues or expenses. Specialty apparel merchandise offered by our four retail merchandising concepts include suits, suit separates, sport coats, slacks, business casual, denim, sportswear, outerwear, dress shirts, shoes and accessories for men. Women's career and casual apparel, sportswear and accessories, including shoes, and children's apparel is offered at most of our K&G stores. Rental product is offered at our Men's Wearhouse/Men's Wearhouse and Tux, Jos. A. Bank and Moores retail stores.
The corporate apparel segment includes the results from our corporate apparel and uniform operations conducted by Dimensions, Alexandra, and Yaffy in the UK and Twin Hill in the U.S., which provide corporate apparel uniforms and workwear to workforces.
We measure segment profitability based on operating income, defined as income before interest expense, interest income, gain on extinguishment of debt, net and income taxes, before shared service expenses. Shared service expenses include costs incurred and directed primarily by our corporate offices that are not allocated to segments.
