    I was here and was stunned and jumping to joy when they had calvin klein x and steel brands for half price!

    What is it with that? On the calvin website and freshpair, those boxerbriefs are 28 and briefs are 26.

    I bought boxerbriefs and trunks for 14 and briefs for 9.

    So happy about this!

    You're paying over the odds in the actual branded stores whereas discount stores are buying in bulk for little over cost price. It happens in the UK all the time! I got 3 pairs of CK boxers for £20 when one pair would have cost me around £12-14.

    But I wonder how many times CK sells seconds. I've bought CK and other designer brands at TJMaxx, Marshalls, etc and in no time they develop a hole or tear. I also noticed that the Tommy golf shirts are definitely a different cotton compared to Macy's or Dillards. Those department store shirts are softer and defo last longer than the ones I've bought discount.

    Hmm. Maybe.

    Feels like the same, gently hugging/supporting my balls type of cotton that I love from Calvin so far though

    I get practically all my CK briefs from there, only 9.99! Usually stop by once a month to check out the new models and colors. Bought some microfiber Steel briefs for 9.99. One of my favorite CK briefs. I already own 3 of them: white, black and a turqoise-green color

    it is still expensive..
    if you can go to CK outlets.. often time, they will have a special section near cashier... it is all very cheap..

    I bought 4 of my boxers there for the price of 2.99 each
    I also got another sport brief and low rise trunk for 3.99 each...

    if you go to the underwear section.. they have lots of underwear 50% off which bring you to around 12-15...
    so TJ Maxx is not extremely cheap

    Actually those stores sell underwear that does not meet the quality standards of the manufacturer. Either the material was too thin, the stitching was not done properly, they used too much material so your medium is actually a large. So yes while they are Calvins they dont necessarily share the same quality as if you were buying from the calvin store.

    I can easily demonstrate the fit of a pair of calvins from Marshalls and a pair of calvins from CK store.

    I'm very interested in this, actually... would you be able to do this online, or were you implying it would have to be in person?

    Low quality is not the only reason stuff ends up at Marshalls. Some of the items still have the tags from large department stores on the box. Maybe overstocks or something.

    Thank you, Go buy some Hanes at Wal-Mart and then go to Macy's the differents is like night and day. None of the discount stores are that much of a bargain The old saying you get what you pay for hold true.

    I think a lot of what they buy is overstocks, or what is left over after they change the style or something. I have boiught a lot of calvins there and they all seem to be first quality. If they are seconds they usually have a tag that says "irregular" on them.

    I'll NEVER buy anything from a "outlet" store. Those are definitely the lesser grade products. What's at Marshalls and TJMaxx are probably overstock (though in some cases, like the Tommy shirts I mentioned) they seem to be a different quality. But at the outlets, whatever is there was made specifically for the outlet store.

    ive had no problem with my Calvins from Marshalls or TJ. They look, feel, smell, sound the same as the Calvins from the CK store or Nordstroms or Macys!

    Got C-in2's before from TK Maxx (UK arm of TJ Maxx), and never a problem with them to date, and as of right now, the only way retail, I can get c-in2, unless I go on the net.
