Yes. We had both sampled. The model we stuck with was a better style and more flattering. We showed them to visitors at the time and the opinions were unanimous (@CHRK33, did you see both?)
At he end of the day, at the risk of repeating myself, there is not enough demand to stock multiple fabrics in all sizes for pleated Rota trousers. The proof is in the pudding. This is better left for MTO events at trunk shows.
