Tried on a pair of great beige slim boot cut jeans that fit awesomely. Will wait until this one goes on sale on ebay or B&S.

Otherwise, they had some shorts, that shawl collar sweater, some shorts, chinos and a few oxford button downs. Nothing special.

Waiting for a light colored denim shirt that was supposedly sold out.

nothing on sale at the gtown store right? they seem to put their sales WAY later then everyone else and send off the sale stuff quickly to outlets/other stores

I thought I saw a sale rack right next to the RRL section, but I flew right by it.

Anyone know if they sell RRL at the Ralph Lauren in Charlotte's South Park Mall before I make the drive?

call me crazy but why don't you call them and ask them yourself?

Warren,

No RRL there, I've tried it. Not a bad little shop, but definitely no RRL.

Some people are saying that RRL doesn't make any profit for RL...is that really true when jeans are $300 and shirts are $150? Just asking so don't bash me people!

Also OP, Barney's in Northpark Mall (Dallas, TX) carries RRL jeans. There is also an RL store inside the mall that carries a few RRL stuff.

Peace

I don't know, but why wouldn't they be making a profit? There are alot of people buying at full retail. The jackrabbit shirt and officer's chinos right here on SF through Blake are two cases in point. They've sold like hotcakes. Two items do not cover a brand, but still, that jackrabbit at $250 is made in China - there's some big profit in there that covers losses elswhere. They're jeans are definitely worth full retail, and notwithstanding the influx of jeans into factories, I bet they are selling quite a bit through stores before they get to the factories (we are not the privileged customers RRL looks for). And even stuff making their way into factories but made in China might still be making some profit.

The only thing I can see that would set RRL back would be cost of retail locations - those are some expensive locations I imagine.

i'm sorry, but no company, doesn't matter if you make paper clips or Bentleys, would continue making a product if it doesn't produce profit. It might not have the last couple years, but overall, i'd say they are doing just fine with he brand.

+1 even though you would think this would be common sense. Don't you worry, RRL is making money and when it doesn't, it won't be around or it will be subsumed into the RL empire.

And they are expanding and adding more stores. A couple of major RRL only stores to open soon. One of the reasons there's been so much old merchandise shipped to outlets. The Ralph Lauren stores have been shuffling RRL out to the standalones to cover the demand. They're doing just fine.

That's what I'm talking about man; a business is a business, Bentleys or paper clips, it doesn't matter what you're selling. If you're in the red, investors, or who ever pumps money into the company, would split faster than a guy who just found out he was the father on an episode of Maury.

RRL doesn't make money my ass...that's complete bull!
