    How does one get the additional 15% in store?


    (also) for the post above me. I tried on the RL wax jacket and ended up going with a Barbour Bedale. I liked the fit/fabric of the Bedale more than the RL.

    to rioni, ive been to like 5 diff RL and RRL stores the past week and none have even asked. they simply apply it. once you walk in, they pretty much assume your there for the private sale and give you the 40% off plus 15% kicker on top. this applies over the phone as well. no one asked for my individualized code except when i ordered through the online system

    all you have to do (IF ASKED) is just say you left it at home but you received the email for the private sale

    Doesn't hurt to ask. Bought a bunch of stuff from Malibu, no one said a word and I spend a ton of $$$ there.

    rioni the card said to bring it in store. Just tell them you forgot it at home and they will probably do it for you.

    Yeah, I don't need a lecture on what RRL is and how it works; I'm pretty sure I "get it". Believe it or not RRL is not the first lifestyle brand to exploit the romantic Americana genre and use "found novelties" marketing

    But since you're willing to admit that RRL basically co-opts all of its ideas from genuine garments, you should be willing to concede that the actual genuine garments are in fact a better value in many cases


    It depends on the specific distressing process, but generally, no, it's not. It's more expensive than say, making something and not distressing it, but it's not an expensive process in-itself

    Treatment houses ain't cheap, bro, especially with the kind of stuff RRL does (I'm talking along the lines of their high-end treated pants that run in $400-600+ ballpark.) And whatever they spend on that, multiply it several times and factor it into the retail price. It's just not cheap.

    Yeah, on some of the better pieces I can see the distressing taking a lot of time & effort but mos of the pieces have the run-of-the-mill sort

    Then again, I like RRL for the unique, extravagant pieces and much less so for the mundane stuff that resembles what you could get at Rugby or something

    I own it and think its great. I explained why a few pages back but basically it's a more modern cut than a Barbour Bedale (which I think is the model of inspiration for RRL). I have owned both the Bedale and New Utility and while I liked them, couldn't help but think I belonged on a farm in Staffordshire, riding around in Jodhpurs on horseback trying to slaughter foxes. I don't get that feeling with the RRL.
