As far as I am aware - A&F are not licensed for sale in this county. In America they have their own stores. Unfortunately I was caught in a scam by a reputable company seeling A&F T shirts whic I later learnt were fakes - as I said earlier it is my belief that there are no licensed sellers in the UK.
UK businesses loose out every year due to counterfeiters claiming their goods are authentic. Indeed I know of a shop who sell quite openly LV bags, Burberry, Dior they even had the coveted Paddington bag by Chloe for £135.00. Trading standards have done nothing about it due to the fact this lady runs a new and nearly new shop her cover story is that she is selling them for people who have bought them in - yeh right and my name is Paris Hilton.
