Views:5987|Rating:3.38|View Time:3:13Minutes|Likes:27|Dislikes:13 There has been an outbreak of knock-off items over the last several years. One of the most popular items of clothing has been Levi’s.
Not only are knock-offs manufactured, they also target the vintage market because that is where the money is hence a greater return.
Most fake Levi’s are ‘Vintage’ 501s with all or some of the details that make real vintage levi jeans valuable. These can include:
-The Red Tab with capital ‘E” which date real levi’s to pre-1971
-V-Stitch near the top button. Another vintage characteristic
-Buckle on the rear (Buckleback)
-Bar tacked Rear Pockets
Most come from Thailand where they are made with cheap labor and materials. The denim used for the most part is of average quality, if not better than average. But the hardware used: Buttons, rivets, etc. are normally of inferior quality. In order to get the ‘lived in’ look and fade, Thai manufacturers apparently sell these jeans to Thai laborers at a very low price (less than $5 has been rumored) and are told to wear the jeans for a certain length of time – 6 months to a year for example, and NOT WASH THEM! the manufacturers then buy back the jeans, repair and clean them up, and sell them to tourists, exporters or on ebay for much higher prices than they are worth.
A quick search on ebay of ‘levi big e’ will almost always reveal anywhere from 1-2 fake pieces to almost 100 in some cases. Ebay seem to be doing very little in trying to remove these items from their site. Heres how to spot them:
Number on back of top button:
Almost always stamped ‘501’ off-center or not stamped at all. While some non-vintage authentic 501s may have this stamped on them, vintage big ‘E’ will always have a single digit or letter stamped (6, 5, 2, W) or blank, but if it is blank, there are usually punch marks on it.
Elongated ‘V-Stitch’ on fly:
Note how this pair of fakes has ‘501’ poorly imprinted on the
rear of the button. Also the long V-stitch as well. The picture of the real one to the right shows the stitch ending at the button
The rear patch on the right hip can also give clues to whether or not the garment is authentic.
– Material: If it is a hard leather like material, the jeans are suspect. Unless the jeans are from the 1930s and the patch has a ‘jerky’ look to it, very few other Levi’s have or had a real leather like patch. Although this is not a surefire way of telling because some in the LVC (Levi vintage clothing line) and ones produced in places other than the United States (Japan, Canada for example) did actually come with a hard leather patch.
– Labeling: Another clue is the printing on the patch. If the patch material seems authentic, most times the printing is not. It is either off center, spelling mistakes, or barring all of that not being present they are labeled ‘501-0657’ in black ink. If the jeans are anything other than black 501s from the 1980s – if they have that on the label than they are fake.
I was briefly surprised recently to see a note from a Superfuture poster, asking if a pair of “Levi’s jeans” he’d bought were genuine. Then I realised that everyone is not cynical, like me, and some believe the claims they read on eBay. So this is a quick post to say, Yes, there are still plenty of counterfeit “Vintage Levi’s” around.
They pop up in some credible places. A few years ago I had a heated argument with a manager at Urban Outfitter’s in London – he insisted that the dodgy jeans in their second hand rack were legit; only later, once I called a Levi’s counterfeit specialist, did they recant. They’d bought the items from a trusted jobber – so it seems that some fake Levi’s have entered the supply chain from America. In recent times I’ve seen convincing fakes which are impossible to ID without detailed knowledge of Levi’s fabrics and arcane details. But I’ll deal with those at some other time.
For now, here are five warning signs for the most obvious, and most common fake Levi’s. All these photos are taken from real eBay or online sales – in several cases, I emailed the seller, who continued with the sale, probably because they were fully aware they were selling counterfeit goods. I’m using their photos for the purpose of criticism and review, and to stop others being ripped off.

This real vs replica Gucci comparison aims to educate you on how to spot a fake Gucci belt so that you can carry out a legit check on a similar Gucci belt that you might be interested buying or have already bought.
The exact model name of the Gucci belt in the video is the Gucci Leather belt with Double G buckle but it is also commonly referred to as the Gucci Marmont belt. It retails for £270 at official Gucci stores. The Gucci belt here is the heatstamped leather version however there are a vast number of different models available with the same Double G buckle. As always with these high end items, many people, knowingly or not, sell fake/replica items as real. Use this video as a guide to help you spot replicas.

The bigger the brand name, the bigger the payoff for counterfeiters such as fake Louis Vuitton bags. Its signature series of canvas monogram bags is a prime target for knock-off artists and manufacturers. Many of these counterfeit Louis Vuitton bags are so convincing, they easily fool the average consumer. If you are in the market for the real deal, here’s how to make sure you’re not getting gypped.

A beautiful stone that can be the traditional green or other bright colors, jade has historically been used in Chinese and Korean art and jewelry. Learn how to spot real jade by following these tips.
Step 1: Scratch the surface of the jade
Use your fingernail to scratch the surface of the jade. Real jade is very solid and won’t show a scratch.
Look for real jade with bright, intense colors, a smooth finish, and a watery luster.
Step 2: Touch the jade to your face
Hold the jade against the side of your face. The real deal will feel cold to the touch.
Step 3: Test with a warm pin
Warm a straight pin by placing it under hot running water. Touch the warm pin to the surface of the jade. A sign of fake jade is a scratch or indentation where the pin touched the surface.
Step 4: Examine for imperfections
Examine the surface of the jade and look for imperfections, like pits or other marks. Look for slight variations in color throughout the stone. Real jade is typically not going to look absolutely perfect.
Use a polishing cloth to clean your jade. Gem cleaners can damage the surface.
Step 5: Consult with a jeweler
Take your jade to a jeweler to get a professional opinion of your stone’s authenticity. They will examine the jade and perform a density test. The jeweler can also help you determine the potential value of your piece — maybe helping you uncover a treasure you never even knew you had.
Did You Know?
Jade is considered a good luck charm, particularly among East Asian cultures. Many believe that it can ward off evil spirits, and bring you health and wealth.
