This compares to adjusted diluted earnings per share updated guidance given May 5, 2011 of $0.47 to $0.50 and original guidance given March 9, 2011 of $0.27 to $0.30.

First quarter review

Total Company net sales increased 22.6% for the quarter.

In our retail segment, comparable store sales increased at each of our brands due to increased units per transaction, higher average ticket and, at K&G and Moores, an increase in customer traffic. There was also a 3.9% comparable store sales increase in tuxedo rental services revenues.

Corporate apparel segment net sales increased $56.0 million to $59.7 million for the quarter compared to the same prior year quarter. The increase was primarily due to US$54.0 million in revenues from our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra in the UK on August 6, 2010.

Total gross margin, as a percentage of total net sales, was flat at 42.5%. Occupancy costs as a percent of sales decreased, alteration margin as a percent of sales increased and tuxedo rental margins increased. These increases were offset by a decrease in retail segment clothing margin as a percent of sales, which resulted mainly from increased promotions, and the increased mix of the lower margin corporate apparel segment.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $203.0 million for the first quarter and increased 13.0% from the prior year's SG&A of $179.7 million. Excluding $0.7 million in acquisition integration costs, first quarter SG&A expenses were $202.3 million or an increase of 12.6% to the prior year quarter. Adjusted SG&A related to the acquired UK operations resulted in an 8.0% increase. The remaining 4.6% adjusted increase was primarily due to increased payroll related costs and increased expenses associated with increased sales. As a percentage of total net sales, adjusted SG&A decreased 308 basis points from 37.9% to 34.9%.

Operating income was $43.6 million. Excluding $0.7 million in acquisition integration costs, operating income was $44.3 million or 7.6% of total net sales. This compares with the prior year operating income of $21.4 million or 4.5% of total net sales.

The financial results of the combined UK operations, excluding acquisition integration costs, were $0.01 accretive to the Company's first quarter diluted earnings per share. Integration costs were $0.7 million ($0.4 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share outstanding).

Total inventories of $521.1 million increased 18.8% from the prior year first quarter of $438.7 million. Excluding inventory from the acquired UK operations, inventories decreased 1.1%.
