Bonobos, which was launched in 2007 as an online retailer, also said it was closing a $16.4 million investment round by Nordstrom and venture capital firms Accel Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners.

"We understand there are people who still want to touch and feel clothing before they purchase. We realized we needed help expanding beyond our web-only roots," said Andy Dunn, founder and CEO of Bonobos.

In February, Nordstrom acquired HauteLook, an online retailer that specializes in flash sales of designer clothes and accessories.
