    I received an e-mail saying that many items at Ralph Lauren are an additional 25% off the already 40% off reduced price on most items in the store, resulting in 65% off total. Has anyone been to the store say in the past few days to see what kind of items have received this discount?

    Thanks. This may be the time to stock up on sportscoats...

    McCallums and those funky cordo monks are included in addition to Gianni (kopped) and Lindricks.

    Not to nitpick, but 25% off of 40% off does NOT equal 65% off; stacked percentage discounts don't work that way. You take 40% off of the original price, and then 25% off of the resulting new price, so the total discount is less than 65% off the original price. Easiest way to think about it is that after the first markdown, you were paying 60% of the original price, and now you are paying 75% of that, or 45% of the original price, which is 55% off.

    I understand that's how sales usually work. However, my e-mail specifically said "up to 65% off." That's why I was asking if anyone has been in store yet.

    Sorry if I came off as a dick. One thing I have learned is that the in-store pricing and online pricing are often different. When I go onto the site, it specifically mentioned the 25 + 40 for total savings of 55%, but the stores take intermittent markdowns more often. For example, I got a suit with an initial markdown of 40% in-store but which only showed a 30% markdown online.

    it's been weird tho.............the extra 25% doesn't apply to everything that was previously marked down.

    I've been eyeing some RRL jeans that are still the same price since the extra 25 took effect.........

    On the website it seems to be only on select items.

    Sometimes in the store it's that way too. However it's less noticeable because things are in different rooms so when you're told "this room is X% off" it feels like it's "everything".

    If one hasn't already messaged you, there is an employee of the Chicago Michigan Ave store who posts in the RRL thread on the S&D forum. I don't recall his name, but I have bought from him over the phone before with no issues.

    Thanks for filling in the blanks of my incomplete reply. I figured someone would have his contact info. Glad to know he's now at the Mansion.

    Will there be a promo code, like 20% off, for Christmas?

    RETAILMENOT25 still works for 25 percent off already reduced sale items.

    I bought a couple cashmere blue label sweaters in the 150ish range and RLPL cashmere V necks for a little under 400 which I think is a pretty good deal.

    Code was supposed to expire days ago.
