Chicago: Polo salesman told me "any day" now?


Last several years it has been NOV17 do we expect the same?

I posted this in another post:

UPDATE!

I've been emailing my guy at the store in San Francisco and just went into the store today.

From my understanding all RLBL stuff is going to be 40% off.

I believe Polo and RRL stuff is 30% off

And there is a "kicker card" of 15% to stack on top of it.

So while the sale starts Nov. 23 or 27th, they are doing pre-sale October 30th.

If anyone wants to start putting stuff aside, you can email my guy at the store in San Francisco. He said he will pull anything now/confirm prices whatever. According to him, they didn't produce as much stuff this season so stuff will be pretty cutthroat later on,and your sizes will probably not be around. Just PM me and I'll send you his email address.

good luck!

Talked to my guy in Beverly Hills yesterday & SALE starts on Monday.
Unfortunately (no surprise there), EG's are excluded. They are now starting at $1,250.
Interestingly enough the 'Eden's' are still still listed on the www at $950.
All other RLPL & RLBL are included.
Good Hunting....

How much do RLBL suits tend to go for at these sales?

The last couple of years, I have always received the 15% card (flyer) in the mail, which can be 'stacked' with the store discount. Upwards of 55%. Usually they start with 30% discount instore.
Who knows this year....

Does anyone know which other styles/colors they are carrying in-store this season?

I wouldn't have been able to participate in this season's EG frenzy, so really my jealousy quotient should be pretty low based on this decision. Thanks RL corp. Sorry to the other guys though who had planned on scoring a pair. I guess there's always the EG sale.

NOV13? this is the date of the actual sale

I placed a order with my NY sales person and he will cool with giving out the additional 15% without having me to flash my invitation.

Presell has already begun.

I'm not surprised, this year.

That makes sense, given the climate, and trying to maximize sales. They can capitalize twice with this approach, once in early/mid-November for those in the know, then again at Christmas time for the casual shopper.

PL shoes won't be on sale (£ is @ $1.59 now, so who gives a shi'ite ?).
Cordos will.
So if you thought about buying Aldens, get the Darlton wingtips instead.

Confirmed today. Monday will be 40% + 15%.
re: Phone orders, who knows. Isn't it just easier to get in there and make your own selections?

Probably depends on how close you live to an RL store
