David reverted to the brand, stating that the items purchased were not fit for purpose and didn't fit the description.

David, who insisted on a refund and not a gift card, further mentioned the Consumer Rights Act of 2015, which requires a retailer to refund monies received the same way they were received.

He also added that he was a legal practitioner who wouldn't hesitate to seek further legal action.

David's email was met with a response from the clothing brand saying they had issued him a refund that would be reflected in his bank account in 3-5 working days.
