    Last November the Marlows arrived to 300$ during the public sale, with a bigger discount plus a kicker. (Total 62% off)
    Probably unrepeatable price.

    Is it likely that Marlows will go from 30+15% to 40+15% as the sale draws closer to the end? Or do you think 30+15% is the final discount on the Marlows?

    I've been through a couple of these and think not (but possible). However, maybe a more important question is - will your size still be around if it does? If you're serious and you've got the float, I'd buy now and sit on 'em (as hard as that is to do) and see if they discount further - then you can either pick up a new pair and return the first or, possibly, get CS or an SA to save the return and credit you the difference.

    This is the point.

    A trick is to add to cart your size and next change the quantity to a big number like 100 units to see how many pairs are available.

    Yea, that 300-400 price was pretty good, took up back to a couple years ago's pricing.

    The current sale now reflects the increase in price in retail from $795 to $850.

    The wingtips are fantastic and get better with age. Unfortunately, the 325 last doesn't agree with my slightly wide feet so I have a 10D pair sitting idle.

    Thanks for the advice. As I live in Norway I have to use a proxy service to get the shoes, so it would definitely not be worth the hazzle to save a hundred bucks, just to pay for extra shipping.

    EDIT: Could one of you gentlemen who have gotten the 30+15% codes but are not in need of them give me one? That would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    If you're by a store I'd just buy another pair at additional discount and try to exchange for my size

    Me too, if anyone can PM me a code they are not using, I'd sure appreciate it.

    The upcoming RL- Private Sale you don't need the 30% + 15%-kicker. If you're shopping in the store just mention the 30% + 15%-kicker and they will honor it verbally. Now the Private Sale is only from May 3rd- 7th. That'll be the only time you can use the discount... Also, I found that the MARLOW's weren't part of the sale... I could be wrong I was in the shop here in NYC and they mentioned that the CORDOVAN were not part of the sale...

    yeah i was told the same thing by my SA in bev hills ... for some reason the stores or not all SAs are aware that they are included. if you show them the site on your phone or on their screens and tell them to look it up, they will honor the price

    I just ordered the Marlows online with a code (thanks, you know who you are) and the discount was honored. Hopefully, they will not cancel my order.
