As I have posted earlier, I am new at all of this and read a little bit than went nuts and bought 4 jackets on eBay. So my latest is a blue blazer, after I bid I found a thread on it and it looks like I should have done some more research. The listing was "Tom James by Oxxford Clothes Men Hand Made Blue Blazer 44 R Functional Buttons" When I searched for this I came across a thread that told me these are owned by the same parent company but have exactly nothing to do with each other. I have paid for the jacket and received it but now feel a little cheated. The sad thing is I probably would have been perfectly happy without the "by Oxxford" portion, but thinking I was getting an insane deal then realizing the deceptive language I feel stupid.
Grand total was $45.50 shipped. I was thinking of leaving a poor rating because the thread I found said it was deceptive to tie the two together.
What do you guys think? Am I just being a little whiny bitch and need to suck it up and do better research next time?
Well heres the bright side for u...Along the way to learning more about how you like to dress and what you like to buy, you now have this site and very knowledgable people to help u along the way. You will see how common it is to have brands represented from other makers. There are many things to learn so that you know in the future what you are really looking at. Examples of course are many diffusion lines that are made from top end designers such as zegna, lanvin YSL ect...reading here and putting in your time and mistakes along the way will help you tremendously. It is not an overnight knowledge you gain but rather a lifelong slow paced journey that takes place.
