JoS. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. is pleased to announce that James W. Thorne has been promoted to Executive Vice President for Merchandising and Chief Merchandising Officer. Mr. Thorne will continue to lead the Company's Merchandising Department, with responsibility for all product design, manufacturing and sourcing; all planning and allocation; and all retailing of the Company's merchandise lines, including all tailored clothing, sportswear, shirts and accessories. Mr. Thorne will assume his new roles effective February 1, 2009.

Mr. Thorne, 48, is one of the most respected merchandising executives in the tailored clothing industry. Mr. Thorne joined JoS. A. Bank in 1986 and has held a variety of increasingly important merchandising positions, including, most recently, Senior Vice President for Merchandising and head of Planning and Allocation. He holds a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina.

Mr. Thorne will continue to report to Company President and Chief Executive Officer R. Neal Black. Mr. Black stated: “I have worked with Jim for nearly ten years and trust him to continue increasing the already high level of quality in our merchandise, while working to reduce costs, develop innovative products and maintain high levels of inventory fulfillment for our customers. I am pleased that Jim will remain an integral part of the growth of the Company.”

Mr. Thorne's promotion is part of the Company's succession plan announced last year. As of December 21, 2008, former CEO Robert Wildrick became Chairman of the Board and Mr. Black became CEO. Mr. Thorne replaces Mr. Black as Chief Merchandising Officer.

JoS. A. Bank Clothiers, Inc., established in 1905, is one of the nation's leading retailers of men's classically-styled tailored and casual clothing, sportswear, footwear and accessories.
