a friend of mine came to me with this problem. but i am unable to help. partially because i buy whatever is on sale/feels good but mostly because he is clearly insane. he sent it to me with permission to post and ask where ever i see fit.
so i am looking into buying white t-shirts as my entire collection of
them seems to have gone missing. white undershirts to wear to work
and under button up shirts. i went to 5 stores yesterday jotting down
the prices and running the per shirt cost from all of them. a friend
recommended jockey undershirts but they seem to carry a premium over
standard stuff like hanes and fruit of the loom
i am looking at various online stores and noticed this policy at the
one recommended by various online sites..
Handling Fees: Due to our low wholesale Mark Ups, All orders incur a
$2.95 Box/Tape Charge. Also, Orders under $50 incur a $7 Handling Fee;
Over $50, yet under $100, incur a $3 Handling Fee. All will appear on
your final invoice under the title of HANDLING.
that puts the per shirt charge up to $3.75 if i go with an 8 shirt
selection of 2 each on 4 different shirts.
is a $3.75 per shirt cost any good? i am going to go need to
look around more, maybe tomorrow go out to places like wal mart. i
was still in the sub $3 range before they pulled that on me on the
during the calculations today its estimated that jockey shirts to be at
$4.++ a shirt, correct? about $4.90.
do you have some advice to give on this?
going the cheap route, with a wal mart selection..
with the 7% sales tax i come up with $4.20 a shirt, that is cheaper
than the premium jockey stuff in our first example on the phone but
still puts it above the per shirt cost from online.
