Ask him to return (for now he pays) and say you'll refund everything, including return shipping, if it is, in fact, your mistake. When you get the item back, verify if you screwed up. If you did, give him all his money back, because you screwed up. If he's lying, refund the $25, and he's out the shipping, and you got your shirt back.

Edmorel is one of the few voices that speaks up for the Italian fabrics. I recognize that they aren't for everybody, but they shouldn't be dismissed so easily either.
