i'll say i think the fakes were really well done, so to speak. the grommets have the little 7's on the back, the tag has the cut and style printed on, the white tag is in the right place with the right font, the pockets are right.
what tipped me off:
--the seller is no longer on ebay :shake
--the cut # is a frequently faked one (705573)
--the denim sort of feels off to me.
i'm uploading the pics now. how is buying off the marketplace here? has anyone gotten burned
ah yeah, fakes. Real ones of those are very hard to find, they were Bloomingdales exclusives. There were probably about 1000-1500 made, not 8 billion which is about how many fakes are on ebay per year. lol
Our mall is screened for authenticity before any item can appear for viewing to our members. We've had only 1 fake slip through this year out of thousands upon thousands of items, though obviously we cannot guarantee that a shady seller will not post real pictures and send a different fake pair, but that has not happened yet either. We do recommend that all purchases be paid with a credit card though so you have maximum protection. You will also be able to see from hanging around who the long time and most knowledgeable members are, with the most sales, etc, and those will be your definite safe bets
