William Rast Check - Savoy ultra low rise Jupiter

Hello
I'm interested in these but they seem to be a straight leg ultra low rise Savoy?
William Rast Womens Blue Denim Jeans Size 28 Savoy Ultra Lowrise | eBay

Are they genuine?

Thanks
Terry

Hi Terry. Those are fake! Very fake. The wash is awful and the details aren't right, the biggest one being what you caught. (They these were supposed to be copying the Savoy ultra low Flare in Jupiter wash which are EXTREMELY DESIRABLE but the fakers way messed up on these and they are actually a straight leg).

Just FYI, WR DOES make a Savoy regular rise STRAIGHT leg in Jupiter, so not all the straight leg ones that you come across on ebay are fake. But, the authentic Savoy Straights will say Savoy Straight on them (Not Savoy ultra low flare).

Good luck finding an authentic pair. When they do pop up on eBay they go fast and go usually go for $150+++ these days. They don't make them anymore so people are willing to pay big bucks for them

Here's a little side by side for you to tell the differences:



As you can see, the fake/counterfeit pair on the left are attempting to be the real/authentic version of the William Rast Savoy ultra low rise flare in Jupiter. But the first thing that sticks out is the fake pair has a straight leg, not a flare like it should. Also, the quality of the denim is just awful. Super grainy and cheap. They are not soft and comfortable like the denim of real pairs. If you get your hands on a pair and have half a brain, you can tell right away that they aren't right.

Also looks at the details. The distressed marks, the intentional hole at the knee, the whiskering marks, the bleach spots. All these details are precise and look good on the original pair. They just aren't the same on the fake pair. Plus on the fake pair the 'bleach' spots are actually some sort of white residue that is put on the jeans to give that appearance. NOT CORRECT.



Looking at the back view, you can see that the pocket shape and placement is wrong. The stitching on the W's on the pocket doesn't have the right placement and the curve to it is wrong. Plus the stitching is super sloppy.




Hope this helps!
