Counterfeit APCs?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Just picked up a new pair of APCs on ebay, but I didn't realize when I bought them that the tag looks different from every other pair of APCs I've ever seen. Do you think this is a sign of counterfeiting, or APC just decided to change their labels. The first is the label I'm used to seeing, and the second is the one that looks funny.

There's no money in counterfeiting niche brands, IMO. The only somewhat niche denim brand I've seen counterfeited in China is N&F, and they're already so cheap that what I say might not have even been counterfeit.

I think that's the name of the new street they on in Paris. They used to be on 'rue de madame'

Nudie, CdG, Margiela, etc. have all been counterfeited before. Of course there's money in faking niche brands.

Where are you seeing these counterfeits in China? In recent years, I've noticed that brand names are moving into their malls, and at prices that match the ones at home. As a result, didn't buy much while visiting China this year.

Definitely. Nudie is probably the most mainstream out of them, especially if you're in Europe, but those are hardly mainstream brands. You spend too much time on here and you start think that everyone knows and recognizes those names. A brand doesn't have to located in a basement closet in an office building in Shinjuku for it to be "niche."

Actually, it's the opposite. Their new main store in Paris is on rue de Madame. I think that they used to have one on rue de Fleurus. I'm not sure why the newer tags say rue de Fleurus. Maybe they still have offices there or something.

Who really cares, both the counterfeits and real APC jeans are both made in China, probably in the same factory.
