Don't get me started... very disappointing situation with this suit. But to answer your question on sales, RLBL does go on sale at least once a year. I was in the NYC store (I think Sacks? the one with the really nice 3rd level that is an oval and you walk around with all the high end stuff, Isaia, Brioni, etc.) and the RLBL was on sale, but still cost an arm and a leg and wasnt worth it imo.
i guess there was a reason why it was only $450
please start and tell us what happened
