gardener also makes a levi's bootleg with UeKi's on the tab (font accents the U and the K to look like an L and a v respectively). i thought only chinese bootleggers did that kind of stuff! haha.

Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, I would assume Levis is just totally beside themselves concerning the quality of Japan's knockoffs. I'm sure if the company were in dire straits, they'd be having a hissy fit.

On another note, our man in Japan is gonna snag me a d'artisan wallet. I can already feel it in my back pocket! Will post pics soon as I get it. Well, I'll use it for a few hours before I break out the camera

you wish! levi's would be suing the ass off all those repros--flattery what, this is a fat corporation we're talking about.

They aggressively protect their branding-----------linked is an article from 2003. The most salient part:
Quote:
The lawsuit is one of 300 Levi's has filed in reference to what it claims are various trademarks and design infringements. Levi's has been famous for its disinctive look for decades.
I have a notion that Sugarcane is next on the chopping block.

god. that's insane that they have the tab trademarked and are being total assholes about people putting a tab on their jeans. they should put more time into their denim and not their lawsuits.
post #461 of 532
Could this mean the death of repros in the near future? Maybe then we'll be seeing Nudie RR styles by Sugar Cane <crossing fingers>
post #462 of 532
It is only the RED TAB that is trademarked, regardless of what is printed on said tag. And anything resembling The Arcuate is trademarked, too, of course.
