+1, got that one too. the black nylon is a nice touch. although i had to size up on it, i usually wear S and got a M in it. the S was just a little too fitted around the midsection.

BIN with immediate payment is the only way to do it. it eliminates all the trolls who'll bid on stuff with no intention of following through with payment (then leave you a neg out of spite if you report them for nonpayment)
why should someone pay $50-100 for something at the outlet then list it for .01 cent and by some chance nobody sees it and it sells for $2 bucks. a person could just return the item to the store and come out even. nobody wants to lose money running stupid auctions.
As for the 6000 items, sales are slow in summer (heavy vintage overalls, flannel, cardigans, jeans, wool pieces aren't in demand) things should pick up nicely in the coming months.
Also the online RRL should help ebay even more. the new campaign will raise awareness and promote the label. Those intrigued or new to the brand will still go running to ebay to find discounts, however small.
Is RRL (sans maybe a few special pieces) made in China?
edit; just found the answer in the comment section of this ACL blog entry
Only some of the denim and specialty items such as the boots or leather jackets are made in the USA. How is that for clothing styled after Americana?
Yeah was a feature in the WSJ about this, they completely failed to mention RRL or anything, and praised the new line. Kinda sad, but WSJ is always a bit off in terms of clothing.
How many labels are there seriously?
I mean, launching overlapped style label could possibly hurt their own brands. Black Label Denim?
What the Fuck.
This overstocked merchandise will only increase their factory store's revenue.
I understand that to an extent. However, if it were me, I would probably want to put some things up for auction if there's been little interest. I think it would probably be more beneficial to actually sell things occasionally, rather than just keeping things BIN for the sake of it. I'm not saying put everything up for auction - I'm pretty sure there are at least 10 pairs of Rhinestone encrusted leather rodeo flared pants which have been listed BIN with an absurd price for as long as I've been looking at RRL on eBay. Just my thoughts.
In this economy though, I understand the hesitation of auctioning.
Doh! I was just getting ready to pull the trigger on this tonight and somebody snatched it!
