    Good man.

    I don't get it. What's the difference?

    it's an inside joke from last Xmas.....long story short, JoseP bought some shoes at the Mansion in NYC, tried to return them with sole wear to Rodeo, got the cold shoulder from salesman Todd when JoseP got into some dispute over the NYC salestax

    So, I wonder if the AA folk are just laughing themselves silly?

    On a side note, 99.9% of the American public would think the shoes sent out are pretty snazzy indeed.

    Yeah, basically they refunded the wrong amount and Todd shouted at me to go back to New York until they realized they had in fact screwed up.

    The Mansion really is a much nicer place to shop. I had the privilege of seeing the Purple Label looks on the mannequins there.

    When these come to my office on Friday, I'm planning on going right to the mansion after work to return these... that's why i ask.

    In other news:

    Did anyone see the "window shopping" across the street. It was only for US Open Polo gear, but it was pretty cool.

    Maybe someone mentioned it in another thread. If not, see here

    This thread was great. I loved the chorse picture. Thank you all for this entertainment.

    BTW, they do read the forum, or at least someone who works there does, using a polo.com IP.

    Well, I hope that he understands that he can get rid of any EGs he has that are extra by putting a sale on here.

    Heck I have bought 3 pair of RLPL shoes this year NOT counting this pair. And not counting the C&Js that I have bought of Polo provenance from GVH.

    And I am way behind several others on the fora.

    The best RL salesman I met was a guy from the Mansion named Scott. When I passed by last week, I actually asked for him, but it was his day off.

    Wow - I'm gone for three days and this happens?

    I just lived the entire roller-coaster in 20 minutes of reading. I was ticked I missed the sale at first, but got to see the whole thing unfold in 20 minutes. At least I didn't have to wait 3 days for the pictures of the delivered product.

    That's evident, considering they pulled the plug on last year's coupon stack bug in two hours. But why didn't they say anything before all those orders were shipped? Also, I wonder if you'd expected them to have some guy chiming in to "are these EGs" or "are these C&Js" threads.

    Incidentally, I was wondering what led the EG people to say that the "stern" had become the mysterious "Corben." Maybe they got pointed to the erroneous website page?

    chorse that picture had me rolling over in laughter, one for the ages.

    I can only imagine the looks on some of your guys faces when you feverishly opened the shoe boxes when they arrived. Lets hope none of you shipped them to your work...

    Josepidal,

    I took the Corben's back (unopened) to the Rodeo Drive store this weekend. Actually they were quite civil.

    What a street. My wife and I spent hours shopping (not without damage) and trying on this and that (some great shoes at the RL store inclucing some new slip on suede EGs as well as some EG chukka boots and lots of JL and Santor Mantelassi at NM on Wilshire).

    The Battistoni trunk show was happening at Barney's. Wow they cut thier garments long. I thought Isaia was cut long but the e54R Battistoni was as long as my e54L Isaias.

    And the shop, Battaglia, had some beautiful Aritiolis as well as thier own line of sport coats that I loved as well as their standard fare (the Brioni Triano line).

    Actually, I bought a pair of shell cordovan boots last week from Danny Shannon in the San Fran store who was very cordial. He honored my discount code and shipped them the very same day to my brother in Oklahoma, so I wouldn't have to pay sales tax. I'll pick them up next week when I visit.

    I feel for you guys who didn't get your EG shoes. I personally think it was a RL plot to disperse the shoes to their retail stores without having to pay shipping.[​IMG]

    What's this about RL discontinuing EG shoes??? They had some Purple Label shoes in the San Fran store that are made in Italy. I hope this isn't a harbinger of the future!

    I only got these today.

    I'm curious, though. What quality were they? Would you say they're up to Allen Edmonds quality?

    I was wondering if they were welted, and if the construction was not so bad. The shape is just... shapeless.
