hah, I know, someone should let them know.

Its not every day that someone runs into a large stock pile of every cut APC makes in numerous sizes, located in China, guy must be really lucky.... and then all his buyers are from Thailand, I wonder what they are going to do with the denim over there.

PCs are made in China right (Macau)? I wouldn't be surprised if they came from the factory.

If they did I would guess they were stolen, which I doubt happened. I am sure APC prob. keep s apretty tight lid on its product for fear of it being duplicated and the market being watered down with fakes, much like what has happened to Diesel over the years.

Diesel = expensive brand with high name recognition. Nobody is going to spend time faking raw APCs

Not sure about quality. I always thought they sold because they are a relatively cheap entry level raw jean.

As for faking them, they are getting recognition from the likes of GQ and they are present in alot of Asian countries (Japan, HK, Malaysia, Sing, Korea, Phils - all have legit APC denim available) so who knows, maybe there is a small demand for cheap fakes.

After all, Levis LVC are a pretty eccentric brand (compared to their washed selection) and those are faked in large quantities.
