NOICE. I'll give them a buzz now....
Yeah, that's exactly the pair I was looking at. Just don't want to pay $200 for them (and that's considered on sale) when I saw them go for $160 a couple days ago in a 36. I messaged the seller but he seems pretty inflexible, even when I offered to pay him through paypal invoice to save him some money on final value fees.
I talked to the other dude (the one offering them for $160 shipped) and he said he doesn't even have to go to the outlets to hunt, he just has RRL send him stuff directly. How does that sweet deal work?
Just bought for $123 total including shipping.
Beat the ebay bitchazz ho's price by nearly $100.
I'm in your debt, good sir....
Awesome. Wear them in good health.
Which usually has a better selection, Melrose or Malibu RRL? Specifically the discounted section
Was just in the RRL on Bleeker. They have some seriously nice stuffs in for the AW11 collection. I had to take a photo of a waxed jacket that I saw...
(Forgive the shitzey pictures).
Very reminiscent of a Barbour - the colour, style, detachable hood and inner plaid lining. Seemed slimmer and more contemporary though.
So, so nice.
Tagged at $890.
Only 890? Was it dipped in gold?
The Malibu store has a little better selection overall. They have more limited edition, vintage and low production stuff. Melrose is a bigger store with much more inventory but it's mainly mainline, boots, icon pieces, women's wear and some hard to find items.
it doesn't. he goes to the outlets just like everyone else.
He probably has his friends/family all over the country to shop for him?
It's possible. RRL doesn't deal with anyone outside their own distribution chain. Presently, past season RRL gets distributed only to factory stores.
One time, I emailed "hananasi" about how they get their items.
I assume he's from another country judging by his English. Anyway, he told me that he has friends and family buy for him from other states and he mentioned Texas, New York, North & South Carolina, and California mainly.
One day I had a chance to talk to with my local store's GM about sellers, and he told me corporate prohibit sellers, but I don't understand why they prohibit sellers? Maybe they think sellers lower their brand value? It can be my opinion but because of sellers, they get to get rid of their inventories, and GM thank me for cleaning his inventory. I guess it's all depends on managers.
Unrelated notes: General manager of Camarillo outlet really look alike Phil Jackson(formal Lakers coach)
Well, maybe by some stroke of luck qua self-marketing genius, but it's much more likely that he's full of it. And for a very specific reason: if RRL was sending him stuff directly most ebay sellers notorious for large quantities of RRL would have inventory that is far less piece meal and limited in sizing.
It's not hard to understand and I'll use myself as an example. My first, and to date only, RRL straight leg came from ebay: $80 shipped all the way from Cali to Canada (east coast). I have absolutely no problem buying these for $220 retail plus tax. So why haven't I despite wanting another pair? Ebay, plain and simple. I've been waiting for another pair to show up in my size (and maybe for $80 shipped). But now I don't care, and I'm waiting for the online store to open to see if they are available. If not, I'll do a phone order. The point: for the last year and a half RRL has missed on potential full retail paying customers like me because the promise of an ebay steal has always loomed large.
i just went to woodbury. it seems they just got a restock cause I saw a lot of stuff. they had about 4 different racks of rrl.
they have slim fits in almost every size. (i picked up a pair so i can post a pic later). i also saw a couple low straights in a similar wash. they have slims in white in a variety of sizes and also the oxbloods from 24x34 to 28x34. they also have a few tan/brown pairs.
they also have a variety of shirts, henleys, long sleeves, and pants. they have a couple of pairs of pants that look like the rugby railroad jeans someone posted a while back. they also have a few pairs of cargo shorts and a few jackets and a few ties.
