    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Well, it's happened again:
    A number of years ago I tried on & bought a pair of jeans. They fit & looked great so I grabbed another identical pair & bought two. When I got home & put them on I liked them so much I immediately ran back out & bought another pair for 3 total. Identical in every way. I didn't bother to try on the other two because, well, they were identical. Bought the same day, same store, same everything.
    When I finally got around to wearing the 2nd pair they were too tight, by a LOT, but noticeably longer. Weird. I then tried on the 3rd pair & they were noticeably bigger & quite baggy, & also a lot longer, as in dragging on the ground longer. I was experiencing my own Three Bears story redux. Only 1 pair was wearable at that time. This actually came in handy as my weight went up & down a lot, although the length was still an issue.
    I bought them at Walmart, although a name brand. I always figured that was the reason. I'd heard stories about Walmart often getting lower quality merchandise from vendors of the same brand they send to other stores.

    Well, one of our better department stores had a sale on my now favorite jeans recently. Higher quality store & brand. They didn't have my size in stock (a common problem for me), but offered to order them online for me & have them shipped to my house at the same 1-day-only price. Sounded good to me. so I bought 2 pairs. I've been wearing this exact jean for a few years now, so knew what would fit right (also a common problem for short people). They just showed up today.
    Identical size, brand, shipment, etc., but one pair is tighter than the other & the tighter pair is also a bit longer. At least an inch. Both still fit fine, just different. The shorter pair I'm a bit afraid to wash though. If you see me I'll be the one in the filthy jeans. I'm not going to send or bring either back since both are completely wearable now and I'm sure the store still won't have my size in stock, but there's a clear difference.
    I would think that from this store this wouldn't be an issue.

    What on earth happened to quality? Or quality control? Is it worth whining about to them, since I can still wear both?

    I'm the same way with trying things on. That's why I'm a Mall shopper rather than online shopper, in clothes. Being a small size & short too, fit is often an issue. But this time they didn't have my size in stock & the price was just so good. Plus I've been wearing the same ones for a while now, so figured it'd be a safe bet. Not so much.
