If Walmart bought Bonobos, this would be its fourth acquisition since buying in 2016. Other acquisitions include Moosejaw, Modcloth and ShoeBuy.

Bonobos was founded in 2007 and generates most of its sales online. It has a handful of inventory-less guide shops in major markets where customers use personal shoppers to try on apparel and then have it shipped to them. In 2012, Nordstrom started carrying Bonobos in its stores and on its ecommerce site.
