Extra 15% off with codes: Ralph Lauren – MAY0511 Rugby – INSIDER2011
Both codes are set to expire today, 5/9/11
“Private” usually means you keep it to yourself or perhaps only allow a select few in on the experience. Ralph Lauren’s Private Sale is instead all over their website. Not real private. About as private as a streaker’s private parts. And like a streaker, the Ralph Lauren Private sale is hangin’ out there for all to see, but it’s speeding by and will be gone in a flash. Remember, this is still Ralph Lauren so even when on double sale it can get pricey quick. Here’s a few options that should help you stay at least partially clothed:
Bleeding Madras Sport Coat – $175.10 (reg. $295)
Linen, Seersucker, Madras. Those are the fabrics and patterns of summer. Madras is by far the loudest of the three, and this jacket keeps it toned down with shades that are more faded than rich. Ripe for a “Would you wear it?” debate. Leave your answer in the comments below.
The Polo High-Top – $63.11 (reg. $99.00)
The offspring of a traditional boat shoe and a chukka. Dirt cheap price, plenty of sizes.
Deerfield Italian Leather Card Case – $56.52 (reg. $95.00)
Sure many of you hate logos. But can this get a pass because it looks like it fell out of the late 19th century? Three card slots, big embossed “proprietor details” on one side, much smaller lettered stamp on the other. Made in Italy.
Custom Fit Solid Rugby – $50.58 (reg. $85.00)
Here’s to hoping Ralph Lauren keeps it up with their “custom fit”. Really trim through the sides an arms. A rugby that actually LOOKS athletic. Imagine that.
Canvas Cartridge Bag – $148.75 (reg. $250)
At only a foot long it’s too small to carry the vast majority of laptops. Plus some would say it looks, y’know, a little pursey. But if you’ve got an iPad or a load of shotgun shells, not a bad looking carrying case.
Cotton/Linen Glen Plaid 8″ Shorts – $55.24 (reg. $89.50)
Is $55 too expensive for one pair of shorts? Yeah. Are you going to be able to find a 55% Linen / 45% Cotton tan windowpane plaid pair of shorts anywhere else? Probably not.
Rugged Leather and Web Belt – $56.52 (reg. $95.00)
Dropping almost $60 on one belt doesn’t really scream affordable, but this is precisely how a leather and fabric combined belt should look.
Rugby Canvas Weekender – $101.99 (reg. $198.00)
Burly looking, but not really all that big. Measures just 16″ wide. Might make a good backup.
The Private Sale codes for Ralph Lauren – MAY0511 and Rugby – INSIDER2011 expire tonight.
