Several former executives of Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. plan to launch a retail brand that will be based in Maryland and sell classically styled men's apparel for business professionals. Plans call for menswear retailer Wilkes & Riley to open online in November and expand with stores, most likely after the first couple of years, said Steve Marshall, CEO of the Bel Air, Md.-based company. Marshall, who left Jos. A. Bank as a divisional vice president of merchandising at the end of May, has joined with five other former Bank merchandising executives who hope to replicate Bank's rapid period of growth during the last decade.
