So hard to spot fake Levi

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi first post here just wanted to know about these jeans.

 

Bought them from here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Levis-501-NWT-7-colors-to-choose-from-43-FREE-SHIPP-/360255651527?pt=UK_Men_s_Jeans&var=&hash=item53e0e8fec7

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160922672763?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

 

I put some pictures up in that listing.

 

 

Then I bought another pair from a different seller and they are different. Different stitching in lots of places, different patch at the back like these...

Which ones are the real Levis and does the stitching have to go over the red line/square as it does on one of them.

The V shape of the back pockets is different too, middle of the V has a bigger angle on one pair and steeper curve, different on other pairs but I'm seeing different shapes on big well known clothing websites too.

Got some shrink to fits and they have the same patch as the 2nd picture but with curve ribbon where it says original riveted like the first patch.

 

Also the latest pair I bought are meant to be 36L but measure only 35L, what' up with that, they are tighter around the ankle too and just tighter in general although they 1" smaller in waist (32 - 31).

 

Ones made in Mexico the other Egypt so maybe that's why? Not bothered about the money that much just want to know if they're real.

 

Look at this online store, http://images.asos-media.com/inv/media/5/1/2/3/2333215/image4xxl.jpg

 

The back patch looks totally different I don't get it, is that normal.

 

which back pocket V is the real deal?

 

 

 

Flat like this or

 

 

 

More obtuse angle like that?

Those look like cheap jeans...don't understand why they would make fakes.

I heard Levi's Jeans made in Mexico are more durable and better quality than if made in other countries.

I've seen Levi's with the V shape back pockets like that.

But I think quality varies from which country it was made from.

Levis has a brand each to the continents and US Levis are different to EU Levis or Asia Levis. EU and Japanese Levis are better quality than US Levis. US Levis looks cheap with Made in Mexico tags and sells for 35$.

It's really difficult to make the difference between the two, I always buy branded products through reputed online stores only which guarantees at-least the quality of products.
