I guess you guys have lots of resellers in that area that are frequently shop there.

I went to my stores yesterday, and they had litereally nothing but Big and Tall Polo pants.
My other outlet carries PSR but they don't have it right now. But sometimes they get shit tons of PSRs at some point.
So there is only one outlet around me carries PSR.

How interesting. Well actually I never met the assets protection guy, but he does travel to those 2 stores from what I've heard. They've been canning a lot of the regulars and a lot of new faces even at the management level. I have no idea why, maybe they're just getting rid of them and hiring new people at lesser wages. I really have no idea, but it would be great if any of my friends had Asset Protection retail experience land that job so I could have someone close to me on the inside. I wonder what a position like that even pays.

 

Dolphin rarely gets RRL, Sawgrass gets some, but nothing compared to Orlando stores. I frequent all of them, including the one in Ft Meyers. I'm about an hour from the first two, 2.5 hrs from Ft. Meyers and 3 hrs from Orlando.

 

I don't think resellers are the problem, because I don't really run into many people buying stacks of RRL outside of occasional tourists and even they buy only a few items, there's just so many of them rummaging through the PSR racks that it all goes quickly, resellers also pay for their stuff however little it costs. RL is probably more concerned with theft and stuff than resellers and whoever is in charge of that now must not be doing a good job.

i'd like to know how you can easily get rid of the stains on the Varicks....since no one in the thread was really able to come with a solution

I highly doubt theyre hiring asset protection managers to protect against resellers.
With large outlets come high amounts of theft. Its extremely easy to get security tags off quickly, even the ink tags. Those big stores probably lose thousands a day to theft.

Edit - That reminds me, they left a tag on a vest last time I went to Woodbury that I still need to get off. The alarm went off when I went out the door and I stood there for a minute and there was no employee reaction so I just left

Yeah, Asset Protection Manager is fancy shmancy for 'Security Guard' - but usually they do have a little larger responsibilities.

I recently had a security censor left on from barneys. Thing is, the thing never beeped when I left so I had no idea it was on there. I noticed it later when I arrived home.  I wasn't driving back to get it taken off.. so a few good hits with a hammer and it popped right off, didn't damage the item either.

Great question. Because I have a hard time paying someone $160 for a pair of pants they bought for $50.

What the seller paid shouldn't be that relevant. If you value the pants at $160, then it's a good deal. And message the seller, they may give you a discount

What someone paid for the shouldnt matter. If thats your rational then consider that it cost RRL probably $20 to make them in the first place so why pay more than $20

I have them in 36 though i think.

about to throw my slims into the washer for the first time. they're the "rinse" version, not "raws" or "one wash". i should be fine (sizing-wise) as long as i hang dry them right?
post #9658 of 20066

Hahaha prajna wants a brodeal. Btw sandi's prices are hard to beat. Those pants weren't $50 either they are around $70 after tax.

 

If you have trouble letting someone make money off you then go pay $500 to book a round trip to NYC outlet and try to find them yourself.

Welcome to my (our) world :-)

Went to an outlet that did not have any PSR. But picked up a few Polo RRL-lookalikes. The polo shirts fit really slim with high armholes. No logos, just a removable fabric tag. The RRL/Polo creep continues:
