Ralph Lauren Corporation Message Board

    Once upon a time.......

    Not more than 10 years ago, you could step into a Polo factory store and find really awesome, well made, high end clothing. I always liked that english taylored look and I could get it at a decent price, if slightly imperfect, at the outlet stores.

    Really cool, unique stuff.

    Now, the outlets are a joke and I'm not willing to pay the rediculous prices at Lord and Taylor, etc.

    I also noticed the quality of clothing has gone down hill.

    I know business casual has changed the clothing scene, but what's happened to RL.

    I guess the days of finding a good deal at the outlet/bargain stores are over.

    • I long ago discovered

      * the shirts and cashmere sweaters of
      Land's End, perfect compliments to Ralph's blazers or slacks.

      * the neckties of Brooks Brothers, the English look you want at about 2/3 the price.

      * the regular checking out the racks/tables at Marshall's ,Costco, and TJ Maxx.
      I have picked up shirts at $19 to $33. that were also part of the current assortment at Bloomingdales, Lord & Taylor, etc. Once I spotted the same model/design/color 4 months later on the department stores shelves in full size assortments afters I had purchased at Marshall's.

      * check out the monthly influx of markdowns from Nordstroms to the Nordstrom rack.

        Because they do not want the general public to know about WALL STREET'S BEST KEPT SECRET...

        Avanir Pharmaceuticals (AVN) has created the ANTHRAX ANTIBODY...yes, it's true and it is the WORLD'S FIRST FULLY HUMAN MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY!

        www.avanir .com

        If you don't believe me, call the company and verify it yourself...
        Phone: (858) 622-5200

        The Wall Street Whores have kept this out of the major media for two reasons:

        A) The company is predominantly owned by retail shareholders who are unwilling to sell their shares for a couple of dollars while they are worth hundreds and the big boys need to figure a way to get them out. Their methods include a media blockout of major accomplishments like the Anthrax Antibody and manipulating the stock price with 100 share block trades to create a false illusion while sending in paid bashers on AVN message boards. The good thing is that those in the know are taking advantage of these whores' activities and accumulating AVN on the cheap also.

        B) The greedy Wall Street Whores were already loaded up with shares of Avanir's competitors who have failed with much bigger budgets and larger staffs to do what Avanir has succeeded in doing on a shoe-string budget.

        The validation of this technology makes Avanir a huge player and I equate the creation of the first fully human antibody with man's landing on the moon. The same technology may very well be used to fight off thousands of other diseases once thought to be incurable by mankind.

        Remember Avanir Pharmaceuticals and put it on your watch list (AVN) because the Wall Street Whores will try & make this message disappear!
