Apparel company Men’s Wearhouse has been given the go-ahead by the UK’s Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to acquire Dimensions Clothing and certain assets of Alexandra plc.

The competition watchdog has cleared the US company’s deal to buy the UK businesses, both providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear.

“The integration of our UK businesses is progressing as expected, and we are excited about this growth opportunity and its impact on our financial results going forward,” said George Zimmer, Men’s Wearhouse founder, chairman and CEO.
