    Definitely have pants. I originally bought it for me, as just about the only tailoring needed is sleeves and inseam, but I think I may be better off selling...

    I very rarely grab orphans... If I do, its either for me, and I plan to hover over the store to find pants in the future, or something super amazing and/or useful standalone.

    Recently re-united the brown Zegna and charcoal/blue windowpane Samuelsohn pants that I posted to their orphans that I picked up a few weeks ago for me. Super amazing on both, and found the pants at a different store location than the original jacket. WIN!

    Very reasonable, they were EU 44. I liked them even more than the ones in this thread.

    I know... My choice was not based solely on condition.

    I don't think he's downing your purchase at all, hence him saying he liked them more(implying he liked the ones you bought). I think he's just trying to convince atljon that it's worth it to go buy them.

    I didn't buy either. I liked both. One more than the other. No need to be defensive. You did good.

    Sorry for the defensiveness... The other shoes would have come home with me if I had been by myself. The store was very rude to my wife and I exited there without buying many of the things that I wanted. I didn't even get to look at the damn ties. lol

    this is a shop called Labels? never heard of em... they shit on their customers to maintain exclusivity and pressure sales?

    or is it a joke theme, like Dick's Last Resort?

    i dunno, i kinda get a kick out of rude people...

    You got further than I did; my last (final) visit I wasn't even allowed 5 feet inside the door. Labels Consignment in Atlanta can eat a bag of c*ck.
