i cant understand why they wouldnt sell it to him unless they had someone else buying it at retail (assuming your friend bought on sale)
edit: i've purchased like two ervell pieces and a pair of cps over like 2 years ago but nothing recent
HUH, I placed a phone order with La Garconne last friday. Besides the fact the girl that answered the phone could not get my email right and I subsequently had to call back, they were great.
They did a price drop while I was placing the order and I called back and the girl said, wait till I get my order and if I plan to keep call back for the difference. Then it would become final sale.
Otherwise cool. Sounds like an isolated incident.
