    Great. Now in addition to people here writing about SuSu (a term that makes me want to barf - so contrived) we can have WaMa.

    I completely agree on the Suit Supply nickname. I cringe upon reading it. On topic, ugh, I really like Bonobos, but I only buy stuff when it's on sale. Merging with Walmart might drop the price, but it will probably ruin the quality. I haven't bought anything from Walmart in years, never bought clothes there.

    This is why I hate giving info. to anyone. Wal-Mart will most definitely be harvesting all of Bonobos customer info. in the acquisition; email, phone, address, etc. of its customers, and will disperse it to all of its other partner companies. I also try not to be pretentious, but I guess I somewhat am, as I dont want the parent company of the clothes I am buying to be Wal-Mart. If this sale goes through, I wont be a customer anymore.

    Yeah, seriously. I haven't bought from bonobos yet, but their stuff fits me really well so I was planning on getting a suit when I needed one from them. The Walton family uses the Wal Mart charity as a tax free piggy bank.

    Well IMO this is not as bad or disturbing as when Caleres "Famous Footware" bought Allen Edmonds a few months ago. Bonobos is by no means the pinnacle of places to get men's apparel, but if you are looking for dress shoes made in the USA the it's Alden or Allen Edmonds. I would be more distressed if Wal Mart bought Brooks Brothers.
    You can never have enough shoes
