Men's Wearhouse was founded in 1973 by George Zimmer, who was also featured in the company's radio and television advertisements until his termination in 2013. In 1999, the company acquired Moores, The Suit People, a Canadian menswear chain. It renamed the company to Moores Clothing for Men. It also acquired K&G Men's Superstore that year, and renamed it K&G Fashion Superstore.

Moores Clothing for Men has over 100 locations across Canada. K&G Fashion Superstore has more than 85 locations throughout the United States. Men's Wearhouse has over 500 locations, also throughout the United States.

In 2002, Men's Wearhouse acquired TwinHill, a corporate and uniform clothing company. It acquired two Houston-area dry cleaning chains in 2005 and renamed them MW Cleaners. In 2006, the company acquired After Hours Formalwear, which focuses on clothing for black-tie events. Men's Wearhouse originally renamed the company to MW Tux, but then converted those stores to Men's Wearhouse locations.

All Men's Wearhouse stores and most K&G Fashion Superstore locations offer professional tailoring services. Both have a satisfaction guarantee and only charge once for any work done by their tailors.
