Both the sweatshirts and warm up sets have the style numbers and the name KOMAN printed on the hangtag on the center back neck, with sizes S, M, L, or XL . They were sold at Burlington Coat Factory nationwide from September 2008 through June 2009. The sweatshirts sold for about $13 and warm up sets for $20. They were made in China.

    it is amazing that some many of them seem to be flaunting the law. Hopefully, they all get caught. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
