    About 2 months ago I purchased a BLACK VITAMINS & MINERALS KIMONO (GI) / TRIBAL SERIES from http://www.brazilianfightwear.com. It cost me 155$.

    After only one week the patches started to fall of and after another week the seams on it did not hold, so basically the whole kimono is just falling apart.

    So I started to mail brazilianfightwear but after about 10 mails with no answer i tryed to contacted Vitamins & Minerals but they also did not answer any of my emails.

    So dont buy any thing from brazilianfightwear because there service is awful and don't get anything from VM because there quality sucks.

    man that sucks- The quality of V+M GI are varied- many have complained that patches fall off after a few months.

    brazilian fight wear post on this forum- maybe you could sort something out

    Sucks for you man, sorry to hear that.

    Personally I have only dealt one time with BFW and their rep on this forum was great in answering my questions.

    This is not the first time I hear bad stuff about V&M quality. Their stuff looks great but I am gonna stay away from it now I've heard another bad story about their gear.

    Siavash,

    First of all we ALWAYS answered your emails. In case you don't remember we will help you, we'll use stretches of the text directly from the conversation we had thru email.

    You first stated that the patches of your gi were falling apart. We offered a free kit of VM patches for you (almost a $40 value) and you didn't agree, no problem, it's your right.

    After that you told us that now the gi was falling apart, we promptly offered you to exchange and cover the costs of reshipping the gi back to us. Since you didn't want another VM gi we wrote you:

    BFW 11/16/05):
    Siavash (11/29/2005):

    Siavash (11/29/2005):
    Please note that the last 2 emails sent were on (11/29/2005) That is... TODAY. We didn't even had time to answer to your email and you're already here complaining about VM and our company.

    Since you wrote on your last email that "Im waiting on your answer!!!" looks like you're pissed off with the lack of communication. I don't know if you tried to talk to us after your last email of 11/16/05, we didn't receive any email from you during this period.

    We totally understand that you're disappointed with the gi but we did everything that we could do to solve this situation.

    We sell a LOT of VM gi's and we NEVER had any complaints about their quality, if you received a defective gi that does not mean that "their quality sucks", that kind of thing is something that can happen to any product from any manufacturer.

    As we told you before, it's very important that we receive the defective gi to exchange it with the manufacturer so they can find out what really happened and try to improve their product.

    Check your inbox and let us know how you want to resolve this matter.

    Sincerely,

    Pedro Barcellos

    BFW are one of the top companies in the field and I have no doubt Pedro would do his utmost to sort out your problems. When a dealer ships abroad, there are potentially massive problems for them. A returned item can cost two or three times the cost of the original item and with a gi that is a big cost implication.

    For the record - I own a V&M Gi that I got from BFW and it's held up fine for 8 months now.

    You've been owned buddy.

    Stop bitching about good retailers when they actually offer you great customer service.

    BTW, Gameness Gi's are the real deal.
