Welcome to Just Answer.
Given you have evidence(chat history) to support your version of events you can take your ex friend to the small claims court to recover every penny (plus interest) that you paid for the clothes in question.
Do you understand what i have stated if yes i will proceed to the next step.
Given you are not a party to the agreement between the ex friend and the buyer you should argue that you are not entitled to pay as the agreement is between your friend and the buyer. Therefore any issues the buyer has should be directed to the friend. You should send evidence that you and your friend are not the same person and also send evidence(chat history)to the buyer to show you are also a victim of your ex friends activities.
Do you understand what I have stated if not please let me know. Further in the event you do pay please let me know because I will then provide steps on how yo recover the money from your ex friend.
