"I’m A Grown-Ass Man And I Quit" — The eight remaining designers must start at the bottom and sell Hilfiger clothes out of a truck in New York City to learn and experience how Tommy got his start in the fashion world, THE CUT, on a special night and time, Friday, Aug. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Tommy Hilfiger meets the designers at the Hilfiger warehouse distribution center to tell them their next assignment which will entail selling pieces of Hilfiger clothing, reconstructed and altered by the contestants, on the streets of New York. The first major tension arises between the designers when one confronts the remaining seven after she overhears them talking about her behind her back. But one team’s problems escalate when they repeat a careless mistake that may cost them the competition, while the other receives praise on their designs from mogul Russell Simmons.
