1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Also stock is really low on Lindricks, only 7 pairs in size 10.5 is all of US, so if they are included in the sale, stuff will move fast

    Gotta keep cool, but they are just so damn nice. If somebody are 100% on ordering a pair when the sale comes and wants to help a fellow SFer, I'll be more than happy to pay a premium for the help. And that folks, will be the last of my nagging, thanks for the help. :hide:

    How do you get the code for the private sale? Do I have to sign up for something?

    From what I've seen, RL will give you the private code if you've made a big purchase from them before. If you don't get one, you can always call Customer Service and they'll give you one. It worked for me last November.

    People also figure out the algorithm for the code that allows you to guess one. That's how I got mine last sale.

    I don't think this is the case, at least in my experience.

    Last year during November when RL had private sale I went to RL website(USA) and typed my email address at the bottom. Boom 2-3 minutes later received an email with private sale code. And I am in Australia !” You will have to spend money at RL store to receive private sale code” is a myth. Private sale is a marketing strategy for them to make you spend more than you should.In Sydney private sales at RL store are not so private. Anyone walks through the door at RL store during private sale they tell them straight away that everything is 50% off.
    The only exclusive sale that I have seen so far is through Mr. porter their founding members sale.

    Strange as I have been on their mailing list and receive other codes, but I've never received one to the private sale.

    +1, I have like 6 emails signed up since sometimes I'd want more than one code to use. Only time I've gotten codes have been my in store profile email and my online account email. Rest have never gotten it.

    Also it's nice to have an SA call you prior to the sale to get stuff secured for you, much better than risking it online especially with limited stock

    I asked the sales associate if they go on sale ever and he said cordovan never goes on sale. I think he thought I was gonna buy them today. I did take a 1/2size down from my US

    either the SA lied or misinformed. I say work with another SA and see if he/she can put your size aside until the sale date...my SA does this all the time... and no, I am not a baller..good luck

    That's good advice. My problem is that the Boston store seems to have a fair amount of turnover. I developed a relationship with two SA's over the last few yrs and both were gone within a year. I ought to get the manager's card/contact info.
