    Yes, that's what I meant. We obviously cannot add this manually to the descriptions of hundreds of products that we put on sale at the same time - so our developers need to add this function for us to automatically add a mention

    Just wanted to jump in here and say that the Stephan Schneider Garden Shirt in the "Denim" color is amazing, and I'm surprised more people aren't jumping on it.

    We don't know yet. But for a number of brands, that's as far as discounts can go (e.g. Vass, Formosa, Inglese...).

    Yes, people were clamoring for checks last year when we introduced Rota. We brought in some checks but those didn't really sell well. So now we know...

    I think the one you got and the grey mini-check are really nice actually.

    You must not be familiar with the fact that several online shops and retail stores having several rounds of mark downs.

    this is common practice.

    I guess you must have just started shopping or "kopping" as you might put it, so pleased to introduce you to this concept.

    I know that in the past, NMWA has had several iterations of their sales, as others have mentioned on here that items have gone to 40% off original retail pricing. Just asking what the pricing / discount plan was for this sale season, if greg wanted to provide some insight - which he did. Thank you Greg.

    No offense meant, TD. I was just messing around with you. Sorry it was taken as mean.

    Been lurking around here for a little while. Picked up the eidos gun check blazer from the current sale. A little unsure as I don't own anything like it currently, but I think I will be very happy when I have it in hand. Also, the tailoring credit is the tits. Very nice accommodation for everyone.

    This was a lazy and spineless reply. What I meant to say was as follows.

    I should not have been snarky to you, for that I do apologize, but I was trying to make the following points:

    When a retailer offers a sale on their items it is not a public service. They are doing it to encourage customers to purchase items at the end of the season. It is mutually beneficial to both the business and the customer.

    When the retailer is then asked if there are going to be any future price drops, they are now put in a position where they automatically lose. If they say no, then they look stingy, and if they say yes, then that negates the entire incentive for people to buy things that are on sale, because they know that soon they will be even cheaper. Obviously this lessens the anticipated impact of a sale by the business owner.

    For people who do any amount of shopping the following is just an unspoken reality. When something goes on sale it is usually at the end of the season and there is limited stock. A customer may choose to take advantage of the sale, ensuring they get what they want, or they may choose to wait for future drops so they can get the item cheaper, with the risk that there may not be any future drops, and even if there are, the item may be gone at that point in time. People know this, it does not need to be explicitly asked.

    I missed out on them previously and am really happy to have been able to grab a pair this time. Kyle has been really great to deal with.
