Truthfully, I knew very little about Zimmer. I guess I knew he was something of a maverick, but little beyond that. This situation is unusual if not unique; a company's founder whose image had become synonymous with the brand is fired. Imagine if Wendy's had managed to oust Dave Thomas. He was the face of the company. George Zimmer WAS Men's Wearhouse to the viewing public.
This must have been an ugly, ugly feud.
