This is not how to respond to a buyer, but for some reason it did not back fire on me. The case came through at 4:45 in the AM. I woke up when my phone notification went off and answered it half 3/4 asleep. When I re-read it the next day, I was like "oh shit".
"This is the most ridiculous thing I have heard all year. While I can not see any photographs you have sent, I assume you have attached something from a more recent line of brooks brothers. This is a vintage brooks brothers suit from the original Golden Fleece line. Anyone with a computer who would take the time to do 5 minutes of searching could see find that out. I do not sell knockoffs, and rarely would I ever sell anything made in China. This is an American made suit which exhibits top quality standards of the brooks brothers company. I am truly pained that your lack of knowledge and understanding of the 195 years of brooks brothers products has resulted in these false accusations without first researching the matter. Furthermore the vintage labels you have disputed were clearly shown in the photos of the listing. If there were questions in your mind about them you should not have purchased the suit without the slightest inquiry. This could have been cleared up before purchase. "
BTW, he is returning them on his own dime, which to me is an indication that he knows I am right on the authenticity matter.
