Fair enough. I don't follow this thread, so I'm probably hopping in at a bad time. The only other post I've seen from Noodles was one where he made a mean-spirited remark about someone's gender identity, which I found off-putting. That, combined with this interaction with NMWA, are my only real interactions with the guy, which is why I said what I said.
Based on this, it's an understandable impression. I believe Noodles was justifiably TO'ed for a while.
The "legal recourse" thing aside--and I don't believe Noodles meant it as any sort of threat, as at this point he isn't trying to get anything out of NMWA, so yes, that requires a tremendous amount of obliviousness, but, well, Noodles--what Noodles has actually directly said and has actually done has been plenty reasonable.
As I mentioned earlier, Greg asked that he remove "Formosa" from his posts because he doesn't want negative information coming up when people Google the brand (I don't think this is really an issue). Noodles obliged. It sucks that Greg had to go deal with a chargeback earlier, but Noodles made sure he was paid in the end. Noodles trusted that the banks and businesses would do their thing to sort of the misunderstanding, and Greg trusted that Noodles would go to the bank to sort this out. I think both of these are reasonable expectations. And then today, upon realizing that the jacket was mislabeled, Noodles was venting and not asking for a refund or an exchange; he understands that post alteration and post wearing, he has no reason to expect nor cause to demand such a thing.
Greg, for his part, has also been pretty reasonable up until his last post here--clearly posted out of frustration that this issue won't go away. He has, I think, admitted to the fact that Formosa mislabeled a suit and has or is in the process of talking to them about it. When he thought it was just an issue with the shoulders, he offered to pay for the tailoring costs.
I think that covers everything. So. Moving on, shaking hands, etc etc etc?
