12. 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, Moores Clothing for Men (“Moores”) and K&G. These four brands are operating segments that have been aggregated into the retail reportable segment based on their similar economic characteristics, products, production processes, target customers and distribution methods. 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, sportswear, outerwear, dress shirts, shoes and accessories for men. Ladies’ career apparel, sportswear and accessories, including shoes, and children’s apparel is offered at most of our K&G stores and tuxedo rentals are offered at our Men’s Wearhouse, Men’s Wearhouse and Tux and Moores retail stores.
On August 6, 2013, we acquired JA Holding, the parent company of the American clothing brand Joseph Abboud® and a U.S. tailored clothing factory. Based on the manner in which we manage, evaluate and internally report our operations, we determined that JA Holding is a component of our Men’s Wearhouse brand and therefore has been included in our retail reportable segment.
The corporate apparel segment includes the results from our corporate apparel and uniform operations conducted by Twin Hill in the U.S. and Dimensions, Alexandra and Yaffy in the United Kingdom (“UK”). The two corporate apparel and uniform concepts are operating segments that have been aggregated into the reportable corporate apparel segment based on their similar economic characteristics, products, production processes, target customers and distribution methods. The corporate apparel segment provides corporate clothing uniforms and workwear to workforces.
We measure segment profitability based on operating income, defined as income before interest expense, interest income, income taxes and non-controlling interest. Corporate expenses and assets are allocated to the retail segment.
