Authenticate please

Hey. Got these from TR itself...but someone called me out on them and worried that they could be fakes? Please authenticate for me so I don't have pause at trying to sell them. Thanx!

Jenn

I think it may be that the horse shoe on the back pockets is not alligned perfectly even?

But I can't see how they could be fake if you bought them from True Religion. *scratches head* the store online, or an actual physical store, what?

It is the actual True Religion showroom. The only thing I can think...if they are in fact fake...is that an employee took advantage of the sample sale. Perhaps placing a "fake" pair and taking the real thing?

Really...I am sick. I am secretly hoping someon jumps on to asure me they are real! Joan?

I actually just bought my girlfriend these ones as well, and they are a real pair. They should provide a fair base for comparison.

Wow. I'm actually flabbergasted that you could buy that pair from True Religion. Out of curiosity, the showroom you went to is located where?

Well, those are fake. So many things wrong. I just can't see how they would put out a pair like that, and let you go through a point of sale. I would imagine several employees would have seen them.

Sorry that's what you were sold. That stinks. Can you make a complaint to them?

You know...this was a sample sale. I have an "in" and I have access to their inventory etc...The only thing I can think of is the employees dealing in the sample sale played a switcharoo. I don't want to reveal the location etc...for many reasons. I hope you can all respect that. Mainly because I don't want to call them out online.

you would think that the person at the register would immediately notice and feel the quality, or lack there of in this case.
ickiness all around.

Those are definitely fake.
No question.

I hope however you have your 'in' to this sale, is able to accept this return.
Those are bad fakes as it is.

A lot of SA have no clue, thats for sure.

Do not sell that pair. Do whatever you have to and return it.
Its fake.

Check this for starters.

Its a simple comparison.
Should be evident enough though.

Here is another comparison:
Pair on left is my pair, currently for sale: Pair on right, is your pair. Note all the differences.

1. Shape of horseshoes, the fake is too small, does not fill the pocket.
2. Fake is not placed in the proper place or centered right.
3. Note different shape on the pocket itself. Real is angled wider at top, rectangular and pointed The fake is boxy and squarish.
4. Note the evenness of stitch length in the real, and the small irregular length stitches in the fake. Particularly note the center back seam.
5. Note the color of the horseshoe stitches. The real is warm toned, and blends nicely each row of color. The fake is almost garish.
6. Denim quality jumps right out as well as the wash itself.
7. Belt label. Yes, the real is mens, the fake womens.
But look at the size, its supposed to be a BigT so the belt label should be bigger on the womens anyway.
8. Note the uneven placement location and stitching on the belt label. The fake is very sloppy.
9. Shape of pocket flaps. Real TR has flaps that gently and gracefully curve from edge toward the apex center. See the shape of the fake flap.

I think you are LYING, I work for the company and there has been no sample sale this month

Secondly even when there are sample sales, they are for EMPLOYEES ONLY, no outsiders allowed

OK, I do not know about the particulars of this but:

Mike is aware of this ' showroom sample sale' so there is something to be said for that.

I have seen the OP posts and ebay sales SEVERAL times prior and they are ALL real, and ALL interesting, and ALL sample sizes.

I have helped her on several occasions with wash and style for the past few months on and off.

I have not seen her with a fake pair that I have looked at.
Until this one in this thread.

I think this may be the point of the issue.

The sale exists, and she has an 'IN'.

Well there is only one way to know... she needs to pm one of us the sample sale price and the maximum pairs you can buy, then we will know for sure
