Take Advantage of Evolution

I'd had my eye on a particular motorcycle riding suit for a couple of years, waiting for the long-rumored significant updates to go into production.  Having seen the updated item on the manufacturer's website and catalog recently, I pulled the trigger. When it arrived a couple of weeks ago, I tore into the box like a kid on Xmas, but...wait, whatthefrigginhellisthis?   It was the prior generation suit!  The situation was fairly quickly and without too much hassle rectified.  The seller's explanation was that it was clearing out existing stock before shipping out the updated versions of the item.  That has me wondering how many times over the years I've unknowingly purchased outdated versions of gear/farkles/widgets; many changes are subtle and may not be apparent to the customer.   My practice going forward with any online or phone order is to make it clear I want the current generation.
