Fun and Games: A Foreign Name and an Old Man

I live on a decidedly fixed (aka castrated) income. So I have to be careful of how I spend what little I have. So I needed a dress coat. Not a suit. A coat. So I look online.

Now I wear 54 Portly. In other words, if you figure the value of a jacket on the basis of square feet of material, I'm hurting.

I found a nice one! And the price wasn't bad, $47. Plus tax and shipping, $57.

It ships and arrives in timely fashion. It is nice, and is shipped with a lovely hanger. If actually fits!

I am happy.

A week or two later, I receive a request for a review. I normally don't give those, but as I said, I was happy. Very happy.

I wrote about their product, in the most glowing terms and how I would recommend Zabov clothing to anyone and everyone!

I submitted the review, figuring they'd be very happy to receive it. Then it hit!

Their name is Boscov , not Zabov .

Hope they had the good sense to change the name! LOL

I went to some effort to let them know, but their customer service input became muddled for some reason (so they told me via automation) so they are on their own.
