You clearly don't understand much the rules of retail. Here's a very common scenario:

Someone posts on a message board that a "reliable source" has told them there will be shipments of a new game system to Walmarts a week early and you can go in and buy them if you ask the game department manager. They have them stored in the back.

You, thinking, "it's just a game system," guilt them into divulging their source. Their source happens to be their sister-in-law who works for the corporate office. You call the corporate office to "verify" before making the 20 mi trip to your local Walmart.

Sister gets fired. All pre-sales get pulled.

Go read Fatwallet.com or any shopping or deals sites. It's people like you, people who can't understand the concept of ambiguity, that potentially ruin it for everyone else.

It's not as cut and dry as you may believe.

It's funny to think that people make (and buy) fake TR jeans.

It's funnier that people pay full retail for the real ones.

Here is the response I got from True Religion:


Dear True Religion Brand Jeans Online Customer:

We are aggressively investigating the appearance of True Religion Brand Jeans
selling at Target stores, an unauthorized channel not sold by True Religion
Apparel, Inc. We suspect that some counterfeit goods are circulating here in
the United States and the Company is actively working with Federal and State
agencies to identify the source and to prohibit these goods from entering the
country.

Kind Regards,

Customer Service
True Religion Online

Hah, if thats not the most ambiguous response.

"We don't sell to target" "There are fake jeans being made and sold" "we dont like counterfeiters"

Completely unrelated statements, yet somehow they manage to lead the reader to tie them together. So they are actually saying NOTHING, but some will inevitably think target sells counterfeit jeans.

Yep, lawyer sp34k damage control. Notice how they neither deny Target has the jeans nor claim they are counterfeit.

I've given a few responses like that in my career. I always said things like "I know I didn't sell it to them". I left out the part where I know who sold it to them and yes I did sell to them. If I wasn't asked the direct question than I didn't offer the information.

They were careful not to lie but clearly avoided answering the question.

I wonder if any of the Targets around my area have them in the clearance. I would seriously buy like 4-5 pair just to flip in Japan (or yahoo auctions Japan) where they sell for over $400 at say OIOI or other department stores.
