WTH are these?

100% NWT True Religion Billy Super T 32x33 SUPER RARE!! - eBay (item 150296336630 end time Sep-26-08 00:13:33 PDT) I did a seach on new listing for Billy and this popped up, they had just been listed and had 4 or 5 bids. At first I thought they were the giants but they aren't. These are fakes? They got a lot of bids.

Oh geez.

And the others offered by that seller are just as horrific.

Wow, to me this was a good fake because I thought it was a real when looking at the pictures.

And that's what luvapup and sungy are here for!

What are the tell tale signs that this pair is a fake? besides the oversizing???

Horseshoe shape is incorrect

Hangtag is fake, more easily detected by the incorrect font on the sticker

Tacking not done properly

Loose stitching in several places

Not even Big T like stitching -- and it belt label says it is a Super T (should be Giant Big T)

Buddha design & stitching on belt label incorrect

Pocket shape incorrect

All inner tags are poorly done

Tinsel like thread used to mimic microstitch

Incorrect shape zipper stitching

Crappy distressing

Ugly wash

etc.

Definitely not Whiskey Creek wash (that is the least important just something I noticed)

Side note: the model is wearing it all jacked up and it is even more unattractive this way

I think I shall hand over my Queen of the Fakes crown to you! Although you did not buy a handful of fakes like I did, these are obnoxiously fugly fakes! I can't believe anyone actually bid on them.
