1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Might find that some thin shears could do the trick to take out seams as needed...

    I tried removing a patch from a polo sweatshirt. It was stitched and stuck on with adhesive. It was a royal pita getting all the adhesive off.

    Yeah, that sounds like a pain. Out of curiousity how did you get it off eventually? I probably would have tried steaming or blow drying the area to break down the adhesive. Or at worst trying goo-gone but that orange smell and oily texture is hard to remove.

    figured it was about time to get this rrl shirt. and this polo t'shirt that i had to get. both current collection [​IMG]
    last stuff that i was able to get my hands on in a size small from the sale. the blue flannel is really thick and can be worn as a shirt jacket which i really like. the rrl faded black pocket long sleeve t is probably my favorite long sleeve now cuz of how thick and soft it is. i didn't expect the quality to be so awesome. and the red flannel is pretty slim fitting which i like. every flannel from rrl seems to fit different. sizing is all over the place i guess

    Do any of the insiders know if there is a sweater coming for SS14 to match this Aran-Knit Watch Cap? If so, when?

    Jacket is no where near as orange as it looks in that pic. Lots of fading. Very cool

    My opinion on this matter is that it is ok to maybe buy an extra item or two during a sale, things that you would like to try out, or you think your dad or brother might like. Then if it doesn't work out, you might sell it for a small profit, because why not right? But my beef is with those who are the first ones in line for a sale and clear out the entire inventory with the sole intention of flipping. Yea RRL isn't for everyone, but during a sale, isn't it possible that they would have been able to afford those $300 jeans during the annual sales, if they weren't immediately bought up by flippers?
    I will be finishing up my residency and pulling 3rd molars soon. Average person in my field pulls 80-90 sets of thirds a month, with insurance reimbursing about $1500 per set. You do the math. I will definitely be able to afford RRL but it's not the sensible thing to fill my entire wardrobe up with full-priced RRL merchandise. I will wait for sales and pick up just a couple things on sale so as long as my store isn't hit by flippers.

    Most of what you said makes since, especially the last bit about picking up a few things here and there. Less, in my opinion, is more.

    Dont think someone making 80x1500/mo would complain about flippers or wait till the final clearance until you buy something. The stuff sits on sale for weeks ..MONTHS even...until us greedy vultures get to it at outlets. First come first serve. If you are too lazy to get in line at 10am while someone flies cross country, then they are more deserving than you are. You have plenty of time to buy clothing if you really wanted to.

    But hopefully once you start making 120,000 a month maybe you can finally afford some full priced RRL......Of course, nobody is more greedy to rip people off, than those who profit from other peoples agony and pain, so before you have a bone to pick with those doing something as trivial as flipping luxury clothing nobody even needs, look no further than your own aspirations and those in the medical field, to keep you up at night.

    Are you seriously trying to shame someone for working in the medical field?

    Are you seriously still talking to me you little nilbog?

    I know one thing, if I cleared $120k/mo, I would have no problem dropping 50k on a brand new full priced RRL wardrobe. I certainly wouldnt come to a fashion forum to cry about resellers!

    What I think about people in the medical community isnt important, lets get back on topic... RRL.

    :lol:

    He already said money isn't the issue. He thinks it's in unfair when seller's scoop everything up without giving others a chance. He's not alone in that view which is why some places sometimes enact purchase limits, but you know how to get around those which you've detailed in the past. Just cause you can do something doesn't mean it's in good taste or considerate of others. Are you saying you don't check outlets daily to keep your inventory full and only casually pick up items when you get a chance? Seems doubtful at your volume at "the_denim_vault" and from what you've wrote. But hey I'm just a poor and he's a profiter of pain. What do we know about clothes? :)

    I'm no insider but RRL seems to release the aran/cable knit sweaters very often so I'd be patient. I'm sure one will appear again.

    I understand that is the way you make a living, and you gotta do what you gotta do to make a living. But no, people in the medical field are NOT out to rip you off. If anything, they should be much more respected because they give up so much, and go through so much to help people. With the amount of work we do, if we were in it for the money, we would enter the business field. Do you think you have the balls to borrow half a million dollars (which takes a miliion dollars to pay back), go through years of endless sleepless nights, just to be able to help people in the end? Also, I'm sure you've delt with taxes, and loans, but yeah, doctors go through a HELL lot more stress than you think in paying everything off, and you would actually be very surprised how much they are left with after all is said and done. Yet, they get trashed on more than other careers that don't contribute anything to society. Yes, I will be able to afford RRL full price, but no I will not use my hard-earned money and blow it on full-price merchandise or a new wardrobe. That is just not a sensible way to use my money. I'm sure others can relate. We wait for sales and buy a couple things that we really really like, and that's only if the price is right too. So yes, I do understand that this is how you may provide food to your family's table, but please don't give me that nonsense in my being too lazy to wait in line, or whatnot. We actually have jobs and we're trying to contribute to society.

    I have a day job and contribute to society just as you are trying to do. So you are in huge debt, cry me a river. If you are such a humanitarian move to india and heal people for 50 a day. You would still live a great life and the best part is you dont have to repay those outrageously large student loans. Obviously in America, living beyond your means and scamming insurance is the way to go and the new American Dream, thats why healthcare is in the mess its in today, and 1 night in the ER costs 5 grand and 2 grand to pull a tooth but I digress. Obviously, outlet vultures are the bad guys here.

    And one more thing, the forum hero silvio does the same thing I do but on a scale 10x bigger, nobody seems to have a problem with him making huge profit because he gives bigger discounts. So the hate for resellers mostly stems from entitlement issues, jealousy and spite. At the end of the day silvio is still screwing thousands of hard working muricans out of the outlet finds of their dreams.. And laughing all the way to the bank!
