George Zimmer, Men's Wearhouse
Millions of TV watchers knew George Zimmer by his signature tagline, "You're going to like the way you look. I guarantee it," thanks to the decades he spent on screen as the pitchman for Men's Wearhouse, the men's clothing company he founded in 1973.
That all changed in June when the company released a terse statement announcing it was "terminating" Zimmer as executive chairman, citing disputes over compensation and whether the company should be taken private. Zimmer quickly released a statement of his own saying the board had "inappropriately chosen to silence my concerns."
Zimmer had accumulated 500 hours of footage in his decades as company spokesman, footage the company still owns. That means customers and fans of his commercials could potentially still see his face but analysts say Zimmer's age may cause Men's Wearhouse to drop him again like an old suit.
"George is 64-years old with a grey beard," Richard Jaffe, analyst with Stifel Nicolaus, told ABCNews.com last month. "Is he the right person to sell to a 24-year old kid?"
