    Why would someone produce fake BB merchandise? [​IMG]

    Probably to pass off a more cheaply made garment as a brand that some people might recognize and be willing to pay more money for than they would the previously-mentioned cheaply made garment. Just speculating...

    Brooks' stuff fares extremely poorly on eBay. Better to fake some other brand. Not that some uninformed fraudster hasn't swapped labels from two coats at some point, but there's more money for the big-time counterfeiters in making knockoffs of Zegna and the like.

    Thanks. I've just seen so many different labels of BB, I wasn't sure.
