    Just completed check out. Was going to add the student code to this thread [which stacks for 15% off].


    All in all not a bad sale.

    Au revoir Rugby RL.

    I have the Rugby 14 wale cords and there is no need to size down. They come pretty slim.

    just bit the bullet on a few items...kinda have a feeling they won't have deeper discounts than what they have currently

    unless they have a new years sale

    i'm afraid they'll send the remaining product to Polo outlets when they close up shop

    hope the items work out since it's all final sale

    Yeah I bought a few ocbds and accessories, I have a feeling there will be a deeper sale of a sort on some items

    Looks like Rugby might have overplayed its hand by adding "Final Sale" to this sale. ALOT of pieces are still left and the movement is no where as close to their Black Friday sale.

    Final sale is understandable given that they are closing...but I reckon people will bite [given the sizing disparity in Rugby's clothes] if discounts are much deeper than current price levels.

    I'm looking at my one Rugby BD shirt I have and it is one of the best OTR fitting shirts I've ever bought. Would easily pick up a few of those university oxfords, but just can't get past that logo. Anyone successfully remove the logo or the entire pocket? I know it would probably be a pretty cumbersome process. They're cheap but still, that's just more money I could put towards a Gitman or something, never tried one of them. Rugby does fit me awesome though.

    If you pick up a seam ripper it'll make it a lot easier--removing the embroidery will still be difficult and time consuming (if not impossible) but removing the pocket should be a piece of cake, and if you do it right, you won't be able to tell the pocket was ever there.

    Removing an embroided logo without leaving marks is nearly as impossible in an oxford cloth, removing the pocket with a seam ripper as suggested is really easy.

    I have removed the rugby patch in my last chinos and I will surely remove the pockets of my just ordered shirt.

    Yeah, thanks guys.

    I've never removed a logo and wouldn't want to. Looks like it would just be a mess.

    But I have pretty successfully removed a pocket on a RRL shirt. With any luck the Rugby one will be just as easy.

    I agree, I was surprised just now to see so much inventory left, maybe a Christmas bonanza soon?

    ^ I'm waiting the markdown too, honestly I don't understand the reason of that price, the herringbone vest was discounted to 60 $(before kicker or code) dollars if I remember correctly and went sold out quickly, the other models are now 77...

    There are also other items that are still high considering the final sale.

    Just came back from after-Christmas shopping at the outlets. The regular Ralph Lauren factory store is selling Rugby items for 75% off. And that doesn't include the additional coupon. So mine came to 85% off Rugby.

    Edit: If you guys have an outlet close by, I think its worth it to get there just to see if they have Rugby stuff. I asked the sales associate why they were so cheap and he confirmed it was because Rugby was closing in February.

    Its called PSR when they do that. They sell things from regular RL all the time. Black and purple label will always be 75 percent off at the outlets, but its usually nothing worth while. I used to work at an RL outlet and I would be getting purple label shirts 75 percent off then 30 percent off on top of that, but rarely was it something worth while.

    I am leaving for London later today. I wonder if the RL outlet in Bicester village will have any Rugby inventory from their London shop.

    I went to Woodbury Commons in NY. ALL the Rugby pieces I got were worthwhile. I had bought the same items for $40 during the awesome Black Friday sale. Got them at the outlet for $15.

    I even bought a discontinued Baseball Jacket...it was a size small. I figured I would pick it up for someone on these forums who wanted it. Alas, my girlfriend saw it.. tried it on..and has since confiscated it
