    I cant find the old thread after the 06 crash (sounds historical), but I want to know how did you get the RLPL MacKays for 400 USD?
    I know you got them at Ralph Lauren at Rodeo but when was it, what was the sale?
    Anyone know where to get MacKays for 400 like Jose did, or any EGs for that matter.

    What is the going rate for a great price on EG (the popular last 888) these days, if not 400?

    Thanks.

    I think I got the for somewhere between 450 to 500 at the Rhinelander Mansion. 40% off sale + additional 15% off coupon for being from Southeast Asia + Manhattan sales tax.

    They were available for 416.50.
    It was a combination of 30% off sale on the shoes (as now), then a 30% off online code they were accepting at the store.

    Doesn't work now. Best you can do is 30 off and that is through Polo.com

    Now shipping is free. So it is 638 with tax(at least mailed to Az).

    I got my pair today.

    Also tune into the EG sale on Jun 22.

    OK, so Perry, where is the EG sale on Jun 22 going to be at? at Ralph Lauren stores? is it going to be bigger discount than the 30% one now?

    I got a pair from grapevinehill on ebay for slightly less than that. Don't know how I avoided a bidding war with all the Japanese ebayers.

    I got mine from the Mansion at approx $450. This is after 40% off, an additional 10% for the first day of private sale, and having the shoes (together with other stuff) shipped to a state outside of NY to avoid sales tax.

    How do you have the Mansion ship them to avoid the sales tax? (ex. New Jersey)

    I think that's usually the way it works. If it ships out of state it doesn't pay that state's sales tax.
