Umm... How about right now? If you're on the mailing list, they'll notify you of when they have their online private sales.

Right now is up to 50% off but they often put things up to 60% off if you catch them at the right time. And if you google it, you can find coupons up to 30% off at certain times.

do NOT buy from Polo.com. The site charges a lot more than what you would be paying in Ralph Lauren retail stores. Adding insult to injury, the site charges you taxes when regular stores charge a flat $15 shipping fee with no taxes.

It is still additional 50% at Saks. I just can't wait to found out what Saks is going to do with the After Chrismas sale!

If feasible, I suggest hitting the Ralph Lauren store on 12/26.

i talked with the manager at my saks and he said that this was their main sale of the year. they might put out some more merchandise after christmas, but the prices won't be going any lower. on the other hand, im betting neiman marcus, barneys and others will slash prices more heavily after xmas since they havent pulled a "saks" yet.

edit - that sounded retarded. Try this: quite a few items are an additional 30% off.


That's what I was waiting for...
Thank You

Sorry to rain on your parade.. but it is still cheaper from RL stores by a lot.

It's very hard for me to comprehend why people still want to order from polo.com when I've been telling everyone for the longest time that it is cheaper to order from the stores.

I understand that not everyone on this forum lives next to a Polo store but I assume everyone has a phone and is able to call one of the stores..

This is true. I followed Material Boy's advice and called the Beverly Hills store and got my Black Label suit for 40% + 30% F&F as opposed to the 30% being offered in NYC and online at the time. Plus I paid no tax and shipping charges.
