    Yes indeed, I've been eyeing the IS coat at Cruvoir for a while. They had a beautiful SS17 coat for preorders, and also a Viridi Anne Coat

    Finally got around to getting these IS jeans from AW15 sorted out. Had to trim 4" off to bring them down to 34" inseam. They're still a bit wide at the hem from what I'm used to. But with the right boots I think they work.

    9.5" works for me. My pants never sit where they are supposed to so low is always better than high.

    Most traditional trousers have a rise of around 11.5 to 12 inches. I've purchased many lemaire Wool pants that have a rise of 12.5 inches

    Regardless of what you feel about EU laws, you do not find it unethical that a company tries to enforce proprietary policies that are in practice illegal as they limit rights granted by said laws?

    honestly it seems perfectly reasonable for a company to have such policies, if you're preordering or indeed custom ordering a piece in why should they provide you with a back-out option to their detriment?

    nothing unethical about it. proprietary policies are only enforced on specific aspects of the business to protect the company, not to screw the customer over.

    where special orders are concerned, an order is placed specifically for you and it is your liability to fulfil payment when the product is delivered - simple as that. you could argue about the derbies since it was already on the store's order, but there's really no obligation for them to refund you payment on the jacket.

    So you expect him to order a BIAS-PTC/35 dildo in size 56 just for you
    Then you change your mind
    And he's left with a potentially unsaleable item ?


    If that was the case he would just stop offering special orders and that fucks everyone else

    That's kinda strange when you consider how recant skinny/ tapered pants are in terms of fashion trends and acceptance. Regular fit trousers, at least here in the UK, are increasingly harder to come by. The whole twosizestoosmallmust conform trousers fad is indeed interesting. I guess people don't want to be called "grandad" or something

    The EU laws were enacted to protect the consumer from unfair contract terms, specifically because it is assumed that there is a knowledge asymmetry between the vendor and the consumer.

    Generally, the three tenets of EU consumer protection laws are to ensure
    fair treatment; (of consumers)
    products which meet acceptable standards;
    a right of redress if something goes wrong.

    Of course, how legislation actually plays out is not always congruent with the intent of the law.

    Certainly, looking at your specific case, I don't see how the contract terms were unfair, nor how you were 1) treated unfairly, 2) How the products do not meet acceptable standards, 3) Why you should have redress when nothing went wrong.

    Therefore, no, I do not feel that you were treated unethically.

    Not really the thread for civic lessons, but generally:
    1) Illegal acts are not necessarily unethical.
    2) Legal acts are not necessarily ethical.

    There is certainly a strong overlap between ethical and legal practices, but there is certainly not a 1:1 mirror.

    In your specific case, I would say that you acted unethically, regardless of whether your actions are legal or not.
