He was seriously holding some 40 to 50 pairs of pants at any given time.
Then when he couldn't hold them anymore, he dumped them on the register, and went back to grab more.

that's just despicable.

Gee, thanks!

The simple fact is some "Vestinum Officina" labeled made in Morocco pants do not have split waistbands or hand stitching, which are pretty de rigeur on Incotex of all origins, aside from the jean style. Also, I think that the waistband and level of detail is not as nice on the Morocco pants as on those clearly labeled Mabitex. I don't think it's a big deal. I wasn't attacking you so I don't know what your problem is with me. That's just what I've seen in years of buying and wearing these pants.

Oh I apologize then, every Vestium Officina I have seen has the split waistband, including non banded ones, and nice detailing on the inside just like incotex. Maybe there were made by a different maker in the past? Im sorry for coming off that way..

It just seemed alot of people didnt like the Mabitex but from what Ive seen at Daffys I have found that Ithe fabric is nier on the Mabitex..

No problem, man. No problem.

Thanks for sharing the pants love--wait that sounds wrong.

I saw some of these over the weekend at 18th street but the quantity and quality wasn't that great, so didn't think it was necessarily worthy of mention. But your PSA made me look some more and I got a few great pairs which should get me through the summer.

Some the the Metibex wool pants I saw were nice though, but the nice ones were marked pretty steep, like 20 bucks more expensive then the Inco wool ones, which I don't think is worth the premium.

I am late to the party again.
Don't worry about it, Steve. You have done a great public service to the community.
There are many of us who don't live in the vicinity and I have no problems in paying a bit more (now that I am armed with this information).

You have just exposed the profit motive of a capitalistic society.
People can set whatever price they want on B&S (and on eBay as a matter of fact), now you have just made it more transparent. I remember Economics 101. We started with a monopoly (where prices/profits are high) and now we are moving towards to perfect competition (thin margins) assuming an endless supply of Incotex (which is not the case).

Same thing goes for the RT Links at TJ Marxx. People knew how much they were selling at the stores, but they still phony up the $$ to buy them from the resellers.

Now, I am in the market for some 36s.......

Anyone who paid attention the last time Daffy's dumped a bunch of Incos on the market should already have known what the retail price was. I did, and had no problem paying a reasonable mark up this time around because I didn't have the time to get up there and search for myself.
