Seems like in years past they made it pretty clear on the website when the sale would end. Not this time.

this is what i did with my RRL at 50% off. i took them to the mansion and had them hemmed for free (plus a free garment bag).  i'd say for straights there wouldn't be much difference because the lowest 4-6 inches are pretty much the same diameter.

I thought they do free hemming only if you buy items at full price?

that's generally true and i didn't find out about that until recently.  my experience has been that for most places you can work it out as long as you ask nicely.  for my jeans, however, they were shipped with their original tags without any evidence that i got them on sale (unless they inspect the receipt).  what really surprised me was that they even gave me a free garment bag when i picked them up - that's gotta be the best garment bag i've ever had.

Did they not ask to see proof of purchase and check the details? I was under the impression they look carefully at stuff like that to avoid giving free hem jobs to anyone who shows up with RRL jeans they found at outlet, ebay, or wherever.

I've taken worn clothing to RL and they still hem it just fine

Most people don't get rrl at outlets like you do
post #15953 of 23876

Yeah you're right nobody buys from outlets except us reseller vultures but a good percentage buy it at 40-70% off during clearance events so they have to be weary of most customers.

 

 

If you have a receipt with full purchase price showing you purchased from store within a certain time frame, then I guess it would be fine even if it is worn. But at 50% off or no receipt, I don't think they will do free hemming, but I could be wrong.

i think this look-carefully impression varies from SA to SA.  i've had multiple SA's from different stores telling me they'd "take care of it" even though the item is clearly on sale.  the w. broadway staff is awesome.  the mansion is a bit hit and miss and perhaps even a bit pretentious and judgmental sometimes. but i think the key is really just to ask nicely and smile a lot.

well they clearly did two pairs of jeans for me at the mansion for free. and i paid 50% off the sticker price - that i know for sure as well, since i'd never pay retail for RRL.  i guess i just got lucky, but i could swear that the w. broadway RRL staff would have done it also even if they knew the items were on sale. 

 

i'd like to think perhaps it's my sincerity of trying to purchase an expensive item? or maybe it's the way i ask? or maybe i just keep running into nice people (which is rare, in NYC).

 

speaking of outlet products, i routinely shop at the camarillo and cabazon outlets in california and have never had any luck with any decent RRL products. weird...

I see...

Not a single outlet in California carry RRL anymore. All those left overs are at NY for some reason.

Does RRL hem with a chainstitch or regular lockstitch?
post #15958 of 23876

Well not to get into too much about reseller "logistics" a lot of resellers hit up those outlets everyday. Try Woodbury when you're back in NY. Most of the time there isn't much RRL and then one weekend they will suddenly put out 500 pairs of raw/rinse jeans over the span of a few days.

boy, i never asked.  at the time of my hemming, i didn't even know what they were and today i still can't tell the difference.  i did re-attach the original "cuffs" which was pretty cool.
