What's the wholsale price of clothing?

This weekend I picked up of a nice pair of shorts marked down from $69.99 to $39.99. I felt great getting a "bargain," then realized that even at the lower price the store still made a nice profit. This is not to say I felt duped. I know what I pay is what the item costs me, and that what it costs the store is irrelevant once I've made the decision to buy, but still I wonder: how much do my $150 jeans cost Nordstom, is my $79 Lacoste pique polo identical to that sold at JC Penney for $14.99?

Are there tax liabilities on regular job income for sole proprietors?

I want to get a business license so I can buy products from businesses-only wholesale stores like Jetro. I would not have any income from the business. Would starting this business as a sole proprietor (no fictitious name) expose me to additional tax liabilities for the income from my regular job?
