    It will be unfortunate if they cancel everybody...

    its not like they are really losing money (at least on the full price stuff). The markup is probably more than 50% and it is not like the angry hordes of slickdealers would have paid full price...they would have waited until it shows up on sale at an outlet or not bought it at all. The going ebay BNWT rate for the denim I ordered is less than I paid with the coupon...I just ordered with the coupon since they have every size and I can order two and return the one I don't like with no hassle.

    If it gets cancelled, I am just going to go back to the store, try on some more RRL until I refresh my memory on the right size, and then order from some ebay seller for even less.

    This sort of thing has happened at Brooks Brothers. Sometimes they forget to remove the shell shoes during a sale, or they wrongly list the price for a pair of Aldens as $75. Both those situations happened to me, and both times BB honored the sale. Their fuck up, their problem.

    Is the code still active? I will put it in an order just in case they honor it.

    Bloody hell! Had over $3k of stuff in my cart, applied the code, discount appeared, and as I was checking a few more items it was revoked! Code "expired". Fuckity fuck fucklebucks.

    Ah well, looks like I've going to have to give my money to someone else. Saenek thank you for giving us the heads up.

    Was up to 1:30 am browsing the sale and pondering whether to spend some serious cash and get it before it's all sold out. It worked at the time.

    Kinda knew 50% off on everything would be an error of some type. Ended up just going to sleep. Forgot that companies would cancel orders rather then honor them.

    Yes now anti climatic. And now I'm a bit tired from the lack of sleep.

    So does mine, but I won't believe that they aren't just going to cancel it until I see it ships.

    If I recall correctly, the same thing happened with Ralph Lauren a few years ago--a huge coupon code was leaked, everyone ordered shell cordovan, & all of the orders were cancelled.

    Perfect visual for this situation. Honor the code and create some good will. :slayer: Instead they're going to cancel it :puzzled:
