separated at birth?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was at this store that had suits on one rack and sport jackets on another.  In the sportjacket rack were three very interesting jackets with unfinished sleeves.  They looked very well made, altonili or attolini or something.  Well as I went along to the trousers, I found what I thought were the matching trousers to the three tops.  However, the store had retagged them. I wanted them to sell these suits as suits but the store person insisted that I pay extra 29 dollars for each of the trousers.  The jackets were $149.   Has anyone ever encountered this situation. On the other hand $149 + $29 seems a good price for an italian made suit with unfinished sleeves and unhemmed trousers.

Nah. I would walk out and take my business to Target. There is just no reason to put up with such an unreasonable position. besides, if the store does not have the decency to stock hemmed slacks, why should you have to pay extra to have them taken up.

What a ripoff - $150 bucks and they are too lazy to sew the buttons on? I've seen them - think they are made in Sumatra.

You must be talking about Gabay's.  Yea I saw they are selling the attolini pants and jackets separately for the price you mentioned.

Whoa, the swarms of masses descend upon Gabays in search of $149 Attolinis.

I am about to book a ticket on Amtrak from Boston to NYC -- please tell me this thread is an April Fool's joke.

I have never been to Gabays in my life so I'd call before I venture that way. -

Yes, $150 for an Attolini sounds too good to be true, much like the apartment I found in Pasadena with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a garage for $600 a month.
