    Black label is on sale as well I assume? Anyone see any interesting prices? I was hoping to get something to wear during the warm weather.

    Will they put more PL shoes on the website before the sale begins?

    If history is any indication, they will not. Last sale, which was right around Thanksgiving, they didn't include the PL shoes - and a great shroud of darkness fell over the forum....

    The odd part to me is that (according to Aportnoy, and I'm going to trust his knowledge when it comes to shoes) they are raising the prices of the RLPL shoes very soon by a significant amount. This sale they'll be $456 before tax and then they'll be going up to a regular price of something like $1,300??? I'm just shocked they're not raising the prices before the sale. Not that I'm complaining....

    I seriously doubt it. But you should check right before the sale.

    Montgomery is wing cap brogued monkstrap avaialble in black only. Hutton, I believe, is the Malvern on the 888 in chestnut.

    I was told black label will be 30% + the 20% kicker. Not too bad. I'm having them hold a mid/charcoal grey glencheck BL suit for me.

    Thanks for the heads up Aportnoy

    Just picked up a pair of Antique Chestnut Grants in size 12 at the B.H. store.

    I was told there was another size 12 pair at the Chicago store, but that's all they have for Chestnut 12s.

    Some stuff is 30%, but you won't know until you ask as they still getting their acts together.

    not too bad, but you're still talking about a $800-900 suit black label, no?

    Not worth it. I thought it might compare somewhat to the december sale but I guess not.

    That's still a very good price on a suit that normally goes for over $2k, is nicely styled and is fully canvassed.

    The RLPL suit & shoe deals during this sale are also pretty sweet - I'm impressed!
