Leases [Abstract]  




The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception, and, if a lease, what type of lease it is. The Company regularly enters into non-cancellable operating leases for automobiles, retail stores, and real estate leases for offices, showrooms and distribution facilities. Most leases have fixed rental payments. Leases for retail stores typically have initial terms ranging from 5 to 10 years. Other real estate or facility leases may have initial lease terms of up to 20 years. The Company considers renewal options in the lease term if they are reasonably certain to be exercised. These leases are included within operating lease ROU assets and liabilities on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2019. The predominant asset for most real estate leases is the right to occupy the space which the Company has determined is the single lease component. Many of the Company’s real estate leases include options to extend or to terminate the lease that are not reasonably certain at the time of determining the expected lease term. In addition, the Company’s real estate leases may also require additional payments for real estate taxes and other occupancy-related costs. Other occupancy-related costs which are considered as non-lease components. Percentage rent expense, which is specified in the lease agreement, is owed when sales at individual retail store locations exceed a base amount. Percentage rent expense is recognized in the consolidated financial statements when incurred. Rent expense for leases having rent holidays, landlord incentives or scheduled rent increases is recorded on a straight-line basis over the earlier of the beginning of the lease term or when the Company takes possession or control of the leased premises. The amount of the excess straight-line rent expense over scheduled payments is recorded as an operating lease liability.  Operating lease ROU assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based upon the present value of the future lease payments over the lease term at the commencement date. Most of the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit borrowing rate.  Therefore, the Company uses an estimated incremental borrowing rate based upon a combination of market-based factors, such as market quoted forward yield curves and Company specific factors, such as lease size and duration.  The incremental borrowing rate is then used at the commencement date of the lease to determine the present value of future lease payments. The operating lease ROU asset also includes lease payments made and lease incentives and initial direct costs incurred. Lease expense for fixed lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Rent expense for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 approximated $257.6 million, and $223.7 million, respectively. As of December 31, 2019, current liabilities related to operating leases were $191.1 million.
