lately im finding a lot of the clothes at costco are fitting not great. like you'lll go for size Medium (as an example) and the underarms will be too tight, but you go to the large and its way too wide/big. like the proportions are not right.

makes me wonder if some of the companies, who know they can't ignore the power of costco, are slightly making their stuff their a bit more unattractive in hopes that they can move costco away from clothes to other more profitable areas. this isn't a CK limited thing, but many brands.....

no facts, just observation.

Are you saying that CK is strategically placing clothes at Costco that people won't be happy with. And CK thinks that's a win?

no, i am saying it is not limited to any particular vendor
and i am saying its a win b/c these companies often sell "cheaper" versions of their products in order to comply with costco's desired pricing
when they do this, margins are reduced significantly

so in summary, yes, companies like this would benefit under the presumption that costco stopped selling as many designer name clothes and those companies could go back to higher margin places (as well as better products)

note: as a consumer, i would of course not want this, but just a feeling

I've quoted you twice here because you're arguing two different sides of the same coin.

If you as a consumer do not want this, then it's not something the companies would benefit from. You holding a CK product in your hand that you paid money for and are unhappy with makes you less likely to buy CK in the future. Branding is extremely important, and doing what you are claiming would be cutting off their nose to spite their face.

incorrect. A consumer may not want this because the alternative option is to buy the name brand at macys or department store for a much more expensive price.

People know they aren't getting as true "CK product" when they buy it at costco...at least most do.

yes it would be a bit of cutting off their nose to spite their face, but they might want to do that if the alternative is the disease spreading to the entire body Stick Out Tongue

Totally senseless that they'd want to torpedo themselves

would you say the same when Apple/Samsung intentionally cripple their older products by reducing battery life, etc?

it's done if the longer term benefit is recognized.

Totally agree w your view... no company would do sth bad to hurt its brand / goodwill which takes years or decades to build. The worst mgmt decision is to damage reputation.

I do agree it is a bit upset to see a designer brand CK products sitting on costco "shelves" rather than hanging up in department stores and CK stores... however.. cK needs to find more market channel to sell its products given reduction in b&m footprint. Costco is definitely a great strategic partner to reach out ppl with high loyalty at least to costco itself.

Thanks for post.. even I do not think the sales is that great to trigger new posts given many costco customers have already checked the monthly ad and holiday categories
