Not true. Mr. Porter has sales all the time. It just depends on how much you buy from them and all that. They send you e-mails and discounts are applied only to your account, no codes. I actually think this is a good way to do business as it encourages people to spend money with them.
The good news is they usually have a website sales once maybe twice a year, usually around Christmas time so they get rid of all left over stuff.
I'm a founding member, but have only have three orders to my name, all sale items, in the last year. Would they "revoke" my founding member status for something like this? Hah. I can't see any sale stuff.
It is a comment meant to imply that people are being ridiculous by continually asking about a Mr Porter sale, written in a sarcastic tone. It rests somewhere in between "chill out, bro" and "STFU WITH THE PORTER SALE ALREADY!!" along the spectrum of possible comments. While one might recall the lesson our dear mothers might have imparted on us (that is, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"), one might be forced to read one hundred more MR PORTER sale comments today, if it is left alone. Truly, the implication of my making such a response is only to point out the underlying Zen philosophy of if you do not see it, then it does not exist. So, really, I am doing them a favor by helping calm their nerves and be more at peace with the world.
Haha. Fair enough. Cheers zen master.
The more ridiculous aspect is how many non founders know how the founders sale works.
