What you are seeing is absolutely real.
Scenario: I went to T. J. Maxx to do some routine browsing and came across this Helmut Lang jacket, which felt like butter and looked like a runway dream. The ticket price was $129, which is an excellent deal for a Helmut Lang piece. The cut of the lapels are going to be very popular this Fall - you will surely see it on your blazers, trench coats, and leather jackets. Unfortuately for me, I needed a size large (since my bust area is large) and I let this beauty stay on the rack. I have hope though for a similar find in the near future.
There was only one jacket, which is one quality I love about T.J. Maxx - you can find unique pieces to add to your wardrobe.
