Hubgearfreak and TheDoctor are right with where the confusion might be.

26 by one point two five is a current mtb size of which there are lots of slick options.

However 26 by one and a quarter is entirely a different size and was used on old British touring bikes. These are increasingly difficult to source.

Specialized fatboys are definately a good deal / buy: rode them for years on an MTB !

I'd reckomend them with my soul.

If the LBS was any good at it's job he would have established what the customer wanted and sourced some tyres. No excuse, confused customer or not.

Vredestein Perfect Moiree for me too. 26 x 1.3
