    Yes, Denim, you do know so little. What do you know about RLs business practices? The little motivational speeches your amateur supervisors make every morning? RL doesnt encourage discount abuse or employees buying more than their basic necessities, I know first hand some of my old SA from RL getting fired for reselling and buying too much.

    Im sure the RRL managers are cooler about it, but RL at large are cut throat about abusung discounts, esp at outlets where everything is already reduced drastically. Dont believe me, tell manager you buy clothing for friends and resale. See how long you keep your job. I have no idea why anyone would argue about abusing discounts, or act like RL needs free advertising or care about their employees If that were the case the employee sale would be open to friends and family, not employee and spouses only. These huge discount events are simply an exception.

    I recall a member here who got fired for reselling on the forums, then split with everyones money. Believe what you want. Fact is employees who resell here make so little they dont even get noticed by anybody. Thats why they think nobody cares. The ones that get noticed get shitcanned. Maybe dastig can chime in now that he is a manager.

    He said reselling is frowned upon so what exactly are you arguing about?

    Who gives a shit about all this arguing over reselling? This thread needs to spend more time focusing on the actual clothing rather than the bitch fest of the people wearing them.

    Frowned upon means they just don't approve of what you are doing, but will not take steps to prevent this sort of behavior. It isn't just frowned upon, they will take disciplinary action.

    Anyway now that the employee sale is over we can go back to talking about measurements and when the next 70% off clearance sale will take place.

    I'm surprised no one was suspicious considering his name alone alludes to theft. Johnny "5 fingers" as in 5 finger discount?

    It's really only one person who ignites the bitch fest time and again. It was so peaceful for a while. Sigh

    Although reselling can get you terminated .... Lol no Ralph Lauren does not give employee discounts so he can fire them....

    RRL CLOTHING I wish you nothing but success with that thought process.

    Never said that. I said that the employee discount is for employees only and if they catch you using it for other people or link you to being a reseller they will terminate you. The way they link you is by checking the purchases made using every employee ID number.

    They audit after every shift, point of sales mgr, store manager will check frequently and see what items sold and which items were purchased using employee discount and build a case against you, then terminate you, then even deny you unemployment benefits.

    Seen it happen countless times!

    Sorry if I stirred the pot a bit, just wanted to clear some misconception and shed light on the positives instead of the negatives.

    I may not post much but I do enjoy seeing every1s different taste in clothing... I would post pics of the training shoes I bought at the West Broadway store but I am mainly on mobile since I am always on the move.

    You guys should definitely check out the sneakers for the upcoming spring & summer

    I think if we talk about sales, they should be the ones the vast majority of us can participate in...

    Clearly sarcasm...but I think there is a REAL possibility they will flag you if they see abuse.

    jimmy5fingers was a real RRL employee. He made a few successful transactions on the forums until the sale started and he got like 30 orders a week and got fired once managers caught him.

    So how did the 35% off of 65% discount that you didn't make a dime work out for you?? Cleaned up nicely I bet...

    Funny story. One of the original members of styleforum actually made it pretty high up the Ralph Lauren ladder before going on to do an MBA. I had a few contacts through him, and contemplated a career at Ralph Lauren and specifically in double RL, after I finish graduate school. This was close to a decade ago, now.

    Stop arguing about dumb shit. Next guy gets a $500 fine.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
