Bank has made a supposedly sincere play for Eddie Bauer to the tune of $825 million. We say "supposedly" as the deal is a likely ploy by Jos. A. Bank execs to get Men's Wearhouse to pony up more funds for its ever hungry shareholders. Good luck. Belus Capital Advisors' Brian Sozzi has details from Wall Street.
