They set up diversions and before you know it 1000s of dollars of clothing is gone. The theifs know there is nothing we can really do even if they are caught in action. The outlets don't have loss prevention depts like Wal Mart where they can stop you after you left the store. We aren't even allowed to accuse someone of shoplifting. Technically, you could walk into a Polo store, grab 20 Polos, and walk out.
They would call the local police, but you would be long gone when they show up.

I think they really are huge on loss prevention. The one that is closed to me used to get sucky RLX shirts for years but recently, they are getting strangely good selections.

This GM was an financial executive at Las Vegas Premium Outlet a couple years ago and he moved back to this location, Las Vegas one gets a lot of stuffs and some really good stuffs because it's tourist's destination and they are really strict about selling their merchandise to sellers. Maybe that experience influenced him.

Since you are a reseller on eBay, maybe you can help me understand something. You guys prefer to sit on items for X amount of time until you get your Buy It Now price, if ever, rather than to lower the prices and actually move the items? I know that outlets sell jeans for $13-$50 when it's 75% off and with coupons. So... in my, possibly naive, eyes, even doubling your investment isn't bad. Can you shed some light?

Well, you obviously know it's because of greed. Not all are bad though, some do take offers.

For a mid level store, they have about 200 people on staff. 90% of these guys work 4-8hrs a week and could care less about thief's.

Ok, Jimmy my paypal payment to you got cancelled and I am fucking furious at Paypal. Of course, I can't send you the payment anymore since they have locked your account. Now, I did not get a call, but first I got a message, Payment accepted then delayed for a couple of days, then Cancelled...mafuckas ffffuuuu.gif I flipped on them, maybe I was taking out some of my rage from your experience. I told them to cancel my account and just fuck off. Tried to get me to talk to a Senior...I said look, whatever I say, won't be good for your CS review.

Hopefully, there is an alternate way to pay you. I gotta figure out this Amazon payment thing.

I ASSUME it's cause of greed but since we have a reseller here... I'm asking directly because assuming is wrong. Is GREED the fuel behind your practices, St00na?

There's damn near 6,000 RRL items on eBay. Clearly sellers are miscalculating the worth of their items.

My question is 80% curiosity 10% Annoyance 10% Hate

You set the reasonable price, and it will eventually sell it.

You can ask me whatever question you want to ask.

If he really wanted to sell that for what he's asking, he should've said in the title, "Exclusive RRL Sweater (as worn by Oprah in Ralph Lauren interview)"

Some Oprahlyte word-searching "Oprah" on ebay would surely buy that for that price.

Anyone have pictures of RRL washed denim being worn? Just curious how pre washed and distressed RRL denim looks.

Greed?
They're not trying to run a fucking charity.

Trying to sell it as a collector's item and just wrote very poor copy. Not good at marketing this, obviously.

Its ebay, im trying to make money selling things, not hook up random people with sweet deals for just over what i paid for stuff. I have hooked up people on here before. I always set BIN prices that I personally think are too much (usually slightly lower than the tagged outlet price pre-markdown) then open the item to offers. 95% of the time I sell things for about half the BIN price. Once in a while someone bites on the BIN and im happy.
