Scott norris is out as men’s wearhouse chief merchant

by Christopher Blomquist

Scott Norris has left the Wearhouse.

Norris, who spent more than two decades at Men’s Wearhouse – most recently as chief merchant since last autumn and as brand president of Men’s Wearhouse and Moores from 2014 – has left the retailer. He began his stint at the company in 1996 as EVP and general merchandise manager.

Tailored Brands, the parent company of Men’s Wearhouse, confirmed his departure to MR. “After 22 incredible years and countless contributions to The Men’s Wearhouse, Scott Norris has decided to leave the company to try something new,” said a spokesperson in an official statement. “We wish him every success in his next chapter.”

There was no word given about what Norris’ new chapter will be. 

The longtime veteran’s exit is probably a result of planned overhaul of Tailored Brands that is being led by new CEO Dinesh Lathi, who assumed that role just two weeks ago today and wants to reverse the declines in full-year profit and sales it has recently reported.

Men’s Wearhouse currently operates more than 700 stores nationwide.
