    I recently purchased this "Charles Tyrwhitt" shirt on Ebay. When I recieved the shirt, nowhere did it mention CT, but has the inside label on Next Luxury, Superfine Cotton, Made in Macau. [​IMG] I got ripped, didnt I? It seems like I nice shirt, so thats all that matters, i guess... [​IMG]

    Dunno, but like you said...Its a nice shirt so who cares. Use it well and enjoy it. If you paid an excessive amount then you got ripped.

    I would query the seller and then if you dont get a satisfactory response then report it to Ebay, post bad feedback and post here what the story is so that others on this site can avoid the seller.

    Next is a large mid-market fashion multiple here in the UK. http://www.next.co.uk/home1.asp Maybe they have a range called "Next luxury". Does the typeface of the word Next on the label correspond with the firm's logo?

    No, its different. I emailed the seller, and he insists that its another high end shirt. It looks great, and I kinda agree. I didnt pay a terrible amount for it, and he agreed to refund the money if I wasnt satisfied. I dunno. Just that iv'e never heard of it before...Of course, many brands talked about here i've never heard of before.

    Obviously the call is yours, but this sounds like to me that its a bait and switch, advertising a CT shirt and then selling something else and regardless of if its a great shirt it was unethical.

    You probably wouldnt have bid on that shirt knowing it was a "next Luxury" and not a CT.

    Can you link the auction or see if the guy advertised "charles Tyrwhitt" Quality, like when people advertise Rolex Type watches.

    While being sleazy that would still be within the letter of the law, even though not in the spirit.
