I don't think I've ever seen a Ballantyne garment which was made in Romania. More details?

It's an item on ebay which is allegedly a Ballantyne.  Seller is in NJ, with feedback 10k+

 

I asked where the item was made...what the label said.

 

Reply:  These are either made in Italy or Romania.  one or other.

 

Me:  Thanks for letting me know.  can you check which one, italy or romania?

Reply (cut and pasted):   They are the SAME no difference same fabric same

machinery just different less expensive but BETTER hands in Romania
If I show you 2 identical you will not see a single difference just cost less to
produce for company

+1.

Thanks, I am not pursuing purchasing anything from this seller after that message exchange.

 

But I'm still curious--is there "Made in Romania" Ballantyne?  It's a wool jacket, not a sweater.  I understand Ballantyne cashmere knitwear are Made in Scotland.  Seller has several Ballantyne outerwear pieces, nearly all of them in most size series (46,48,50,52,54,56,etc)

 

Also, generally, for wool outerwear (jackets, coats), is there a real difference in made in italy vs Made in Romania?
