Sadly with branding people with a god brand name do allow others to sell under their name as licensing is a big business. I worked for a company once that dealt with merchandise at a trade show where they would sell items under branded names and the woman told me it's so common, they just trade on the name. This is more common with pens, sunglasses and accessories. Even Gucci sunglasses, probably are made under license and are not real Gucci in the sense they are from Italy. I have a few pairs and they are good quality, and the cases are nice, but they are still mass produced probably from a factory that makes all designer sunglasses.
