    So does the Georgetown Rugby store also sell RRL jeans? I've been thinking about getting a pair. Where is the closest place to get them from Georgetown?
    Farinelli's across the bridge in Clarendon carries them.

    What is this you speak of? RRL has been at the barneys here since at least last fall.

    To my understanding, Barney's is buying more of their stock and promoting the brand more.

    The "rumor" is that over 50% of the denim at Barney's this fall will be RRL. They're also buying into the rest of the collection. So while RRL has been at Barney's, it'll seem microscpoic compared to what you'll see this fall.

    I think that they've been doing test runs at select Barneys for a couple of seasons now. I got stuff at the SF one that was sold out everywhere else for 50% off last December, and there was an entire display, write by the cash register, for RRL. I guess that it did well.

    There's a fairly large stock here at the barneys in las vegas (more representation than any other brand at least) and unless they are consistently re-stocking it hasn't been selling worth a damn. As far as denim goes they have much more n&f than anything else at the moment.

    Barneys is trying to get out of their lease in Vegas. I am good friends with the mens denim buyer and they are doing a lot with RRL.
    Right now RRL is the best preformer in Barneys and in the Ralph stores.

    Wow, already? They only got here last year. I'm going to miss having a place nearby to try on RRLs and other good denim

    yea I know, I'm just a sucker for actually seeing how things fit. Plus it never hurts to have an excuse for going out to the Strip

    true.
    I have to go to Vegas twice a year and I dread it because of the strip.
    No one ever wants to go to red rock or anything!

    I really wonder who would lease that space that barneys occupies right now if they do manage to break their agreement. It's a fantastic looking store with quite a bit of visual attention directed to the stairwell and I can't think of a company that could come in and occupy more than one floor. Now that I think of it, maybe Sands could use it as an upscale convention hall.

    I can't fathom that they will get out their lease. Like someone said they've only been there for about 2 years and are the anchor tenant in that new Palazzo shopping center. I really like that Barney's too. Good lay out and has a pretty good selection of stuff considering it's size.

    You got to figure they signed a 10 year lease, as much money as they may be losing there is no way that the Palazzo will let them "break" or cancel the lease even with a buy out which would probably not even cover the amount of money they are losing or the horrible PR it would be.

    RRL is such a strange market.... I'm a cheapskate, but I don't think I've ever heard of anyone even considering buying the stuff at full price...

    And that sizing fiasco with the denim they had a while back has RRL denim all over the place that people picked up for 20-30bucks a pair.

    Don't get me wrong, I think the aesthetic and denim isn't bad at all, and their whole "vintage exclusive" thing seems to work well for the general public. I guess its just us nerds who know any better....

    Spencer- it makes sense.

    RRL like I said earlier is Barney's number one preformer and ralphs number one performer at retail so nairb you aren't alone my friend.
