Well I suppose it had to happen sooner or later,after 5 years of buying on ebay, I recieved my first fake merchandise, 4 pairs of "PDC 2LTD-02" jeans. On recieving them I compared them to my authentic Paper Denims, they are fairly decent fakes, but most definitely not authentic. There are quite a few small differences in details, and the cut is a bit off (slightly fuller in the thigh and knee) which I might be persuaded to chalk up to different production runs. But... Note to counterfeiters: If you go trouble of faking the label declaring that each pair is individually numbered, IT'S NOT A GOOD IDEA TO SEND OUT EVERY PAIR WITH THE SAME SERIAL NUMBER Â
Â
 (they are all marked #13248 for those who are wondering.) Thank goodness I paid with my Amex card, and won't lose any $$. I'll post detailed pics later for those interested. I bought my jeans from sellers str8_deelz and eddiext24. A quick perusal of ebay showed fakes being sold by: trustbigd affluent_sales zaiid0i55 abe1819 mystore_ny p-wood0123 And I'm sure there are others. It seems a pretty good scam as most of the buyers are posting positive feedback.. With the pics I post later you will be able to tell if jeans you are looking at are fake or not from the pictures in the auctions. And this has been a friendly community service announcement from your local HONEST ebay seller Â

It should be noted that there are a lot of authentic PDC jeans on ebay too. I think these fakes are a fairly recent phenomenon. But telling the two apart will be easy once you see my pictures.

Major bummer. I swore off buying anything "popular" from ebay after I recieved two fake lacoste shirts. I already knew Diesels and True Religions from ebay were almost always fake. Guess I will add PDC to the list. As a side note, several months ago, there were 0 Earnest Sewn jeans on ebay, and now it is flooded with them. If they make fake PDCs, it shouldn't be too hard to make fake Earnest Sewn.

I bought what turned out to be a pair of fake Sevens from str8_deelz a while back, and they were really, really terrible looking fakes. Somehow, he keeps up a good business selling them, but the customers should be able to tell that the poor denim quality, sloppy stitching, awful wash and lack of a crease down the leg does not add up to a real NYD Seven jean.

Looking at denim_kingdom's wares makes me suspicious as well.
