THE CLOTHING WAREHOUSE NOW ALLOWED TO USE COMPARATIVE ADVERTISING

 ROYAL OAK, Mich., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. District Judge Barbara Hackett clarified an earlier ruling making it clear that THC Inc., owners of The Clothing Warehouse, a Royal Oak-based chain of three discount men's stores, is allowed to use comparative advertising, in conformity with FTC guidelines, comparing the prices of The Clothing Warehouse with those of the Men's Wearhouse for the same manufacturers' goods.
 Clothing Warehouse President Philip Elkus said, "It's wonderful news. We can now let the world know how much better our prices are on the same manufacturers' suits."
 Judge Hackett is presiding over this case in which two competing menswear retailers, with nearly indistinguishable names, are each seeking to establish their superior rights to the names. The retailers have recently completed a trial in the U.S. Patent and Trade Mark Office and are awaiting a ruling on which one of the two has the right to register their respective trade identity.
