I just bought these C&J-made Polo Chelsea boots for $179 on sale at the local Polo store. http://www.bluefly.com/pages....duct+ID Granted, they retail for a lot more than what I paid -- but less than the $462 Bluefly is trying to sell them for, and certainly way less than the $770 Bluefly claims as retail value. This kind of mispricing appears to me to be rampant on the site (although this is an especially egregious example). I suspect many people get taken as a result. Good value is out there on Bluefly, but you need to know what you're doing in order to find it. Montecristo

$432 for a pair of Polo leather moccasins?  Retail $720?  You have got to have sh*t for brains to believe that.  Sorry.  Pardon me.  Excuse me.  Er-hem.

Yeah, I've got a pair of EG velvet slippers that retails for that kind of money at RL (which I picked up on Ebay from Grapevinehill), but I could buy those $700 mocs for $40 at LL Bean.

Careful when you buy there unless you know the merchandise, or the line. Agreed. Though I feel that I have done well on Bluefly, it is because I saw the actual items in the store prior to seeing them on Bluefly. Also, returns on Bluefly are painless.

Examples of good deals I have gotten include RLPL cashmere sweaters, Prada shoes, RL Boots, all at 50%+ off regular retail and all items I have seen in stores at retail prices. Bluefly has done well by me many times, I have to say.

I honestly think Bluefly made an unintentional mistake here -- they had previously sold those black Chelseas for about $250ish and had the retail correct. I think somebody may have mixed them up with the Edward Green shoes, perhaps. I've never seen serious mispricing issues on Bluefly, and I can't knock a discounter who gives me a pair of Edward Greens for $342 (after shipping) and then sends me a $5 refund because the right hand corner of the shoe box had a small ding on it.
