George Zimmer Will No Longer Head Men's Wearhouse; Five Ads to Mourn the End of an Era

Houston's own Men's Wearhouse has announced that after almost 40 years in charge -- and almost that long bedeviling TV viewers -- George Zimmer is stepping down as CEO.

Zimmer started the company in Houston in 1973, and now blankets America with his "You're going to like the way you look; I guarantee it." He'll still have a role in the company, and will no doubt continue to appear in ads, but it's the end of an era.

A trip down Men's Wearhouse memory lane:

Lovely wood paneling throughout the store, dude.

4. Here the hair is starting to look a little, how you say, "wiggy"?
But it doesn't affect the guarantee.

3. The stern voice of bargain-suit justice
A righteous Zimmer takes on Macy's and leaves them whimpering in the sand.

Commercials that were so much better and less annoying than those two local clothes jerks who bring in hot chicks and high five each other to sell stuff. Really obnoxious.
