There was no line at the opening of the Ralph Lauren sample sale this morning, The Shophound reports: "Things were pretty subdued during the sale's first hour this morning, and there was plenty of merchandise with a simple pricing guide. 65% off retail prices for men's clothes, 70% off women's clothes and 75% off shoes and accessories... The majority of offerings are from the Black Label and Black Label Denim lines... The sale runs through Thursday, and has been known to add extra discounts on the last day." [The Shophound; Dealfeed]
