My word - those prices are insane! Fifty bucks for a pair of boxer shorts?!

Even with 15% off I still would have bypassed. Is this store like top quality clothing or something? Their merchandise does look good so I'm just trying to understand what justifies those prices - are they silk or Egyptian cotton or something?

Oh is that the reason for the large price tags? Cheers for the clarification

Peter Alexander are having a huge sale on at the moment.

Men's shorts $15
Men's pants and shirts are $25 (I think)

Just picked up a second pair of shorts... at that price was hard not to.

That's hilarious considering the retarded prices they were charging just 2 months ago.
Unfortunately stores like this never understand that it's their prices that's the problem and don't see the connection between high price=no sales and low price=everything sells quickly.
If they did then maybe we could consistently have nice things.

Anyway, there's actually a store near me (I never knew since I don't shop at stores that rely on "wank factor", as Ralph so aptly put it, to sell their overpriced goods) so I might go have a look see if anything is left.
Though in saying that, a Kmart PJ shirt+pant set at full price is the same as Peter's sale price for just the pants, so it's still not likely very good value for what may be basically the same thing...

Do you have a PA outlet near you? They could be there discounted. I saw them there at the Perth outlet store.
