  Goodbye to cheap designer clothes
Updated 20 November 2001, 16.42
A customer looks at Levi jeans in Tesco
A supermarket has lost its battle to sell designer clothes at much cheaper prices.

Tesco wants the right to sell Levi jeans at almost half the shop price.

Fact File
Price differences
Levi jeans:
Tesco price 27.99
Normal price 50
Paul Smith perfume: Tesco price 20
Normal price 26
Leeds football shirt: Tesco price 34.99
Normal price 45
Beanie Babies:
Tesco price 3.99
Normal price 4.99
But Levi's was unhappy with the idea and took Tesco to the European Union's highest court to fight it out.

It won.

Cheaper

The decision means that Tesco cannot import Levi's and other goods from other countries, where they are often cheaper.

However, Tesco, and stores like Asda, have said they will continue to sell designer goods at cheaper prices, even though they risk being sued.
