    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.

    You're welcomed. I was thinking about getting 6 pairs, too, but then I would have to buy 3 more pairs of shoes, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of saving money, :embar:

    Which leads to a question I've had every time I see people going crazy for shoe tree sales. Are people replacing old shoe trees with new ones or simply buying new shoes without trees? Do old shoe trees need to be replaced?

    Not really, sometimes people sand them to get the 'freshness' back

    I actually bought about a couple pairs of "good" shoes before I had the shoe trees. I have enough and don't need for a while. I heard about the sanding also.

    People on SF > spend more time on SF > buy more shoes they learn about on SF > need shoe trees > need a sale before shoe trees are justifiable

    PSA - that outlet used to be (and perhaps still is) a RLPL gold mine. i've kopped staple RLPL sports jackets and suits, polos, dress pants and even EG shoes (including the grail-ish Grant) from that place. it's always worth a visit if you're in the area, although there are indeed many times when it's completely dry

    I got a batch of the contoured wooden hangers (the $15 ones, not the $24 cedar ones) and they're pretty nice. Certainly good for $5 each during these sales.

    I've made it a habit of visiting weekly, as the gems seem to pop up randomly, if at all.

    I was not aware of any decent shoe offerings, what section would the shoe shoe gems be found? The regular shoe section is usually dismal... :plain:

    if you're facing the store from inside the outlet, the whole right side is the men's section. when i picked up my Grants they were in the shelves next to the doorway separating the "men's store" from the main outlet

    My parents live near Orlando. Would it be wrong of me to ask my Mom to constantly go to the outlet to look for RLPL stuff? I think she would if I asked her - but I don't think I can bring myself to ask.

    Haha sometimes I ask my Mom to pick up stuff for me (like these Jos. A Bank shoe trees although with free ship I ordered them this time). I usually get her something nice each time she does pick up something for me

    edit: I am a college student though so might be a little different

    If you won't ask her, I will.

    The place sounds like a gold mine for RLPL. And to think I could have been in Florida this week and turned it down.
