    Spoke to a sales associate by phone at the Tyson's Galleria RL store, who informed me that Black Label is not included as part of the private sale [​IMG]

    Damn, I jumped the gun and went today. Then I noticed there was not a 15% off the 30%. Do you think if I bring the receipt back they will adjust?

    Has anyone tried getting the benefit of the sale in-person at a store even though you don't have the physical card?

    Yes, just go to the store on those dates and tell them you forgot to bring the card and have them enter MAY0511 as the discount code. I never bother to bring the card with me.

    I just did one better than that on the pre-private sale. I have been looking for the Darlton/Marlow Cordovan PTB and someone here or over at AAAC said to call either the Mansion in NYC or the SFran store during the next sale. So I called the Mansion the day before the pre-private sale starts to ask if they if they have the PTB (it's not online)--SA replied in the affirmative and that they had it in my size. I told her I had the private sale card with the code for a one-time use. She said they would hold them for me and to call back the next day. Which I did, she rang me up, and FedEx just delivered them here in OK. I never did have to tell her the code and she never asked for any information but dutifully gave me the 40% + 15% off. So, depending on who you talk to, you can get lucky. I had the code anyway, which I then used online for some other stuff, but she never asked for it.

    Btw, these PTB's are phenomenal! I've had the wings for about 6 months now and take the PTB's out of the box--they shine like a junior mint, are a beautiful dark chocolate, and remind me of when I first pulled the wings out of the box. The finish on these Darltons is unbelievable. Makes the headache of the double sole break-in worth it. Btw, the price on the box said $850 for these so looks like the Cordovan price increase has hit RL as well unless they normally price the PTB's higher.

    Oh, so if your local RL store is out of the Darltons, and they're not available in your size online, you can just call any store that has them and they'll ship them to you?

    Yes, although I prefer to have the SA at the local store check on his computer to find out which stores have whatever I may be interested in in stock and call them.

    I think you can buy them in the store and the store that has them will ship directly to you.

    Went to my local store today and was told by an SA that they are still not informed if BL is excluded until the real sale starts (tomorrow).

    I went to the RL store in SF today and while the SA told me she could give me the discount even though I didn't have a card, she also said that Polo suits are excluded from the sale. [​IMG]

    I don't mean to hijack the thread, but this is tangentially relevant. I purchased a pair of Darltons at my local store on sale today. There is some discoloration in the cordovan, but I bought them anyway. I read some threads about cordovan discoloration, and I understand this is normal with cordovan to some extent and can be mitigated a bit with polish. But the discoloration is in a prominent place, and I can still return these, so does anyone think I should? The alternative is to have them ordered sight unseen from another store, but of course those could end up being worse. The discoloration runs diagonally across the top of the foot. It looks like a shadow but it's actually in the leather: [​IMG]

    So just have them order another pair and then decide which one you want to keep. That way, you can only do same or better.
