Compare it to the real deal:
No type of sought after vintage clothing is safe from Thailand’s bootlegging enterprise. They’re increasingly setting their sights on vintage because it’s far less risky to bootleg defunct vintage brands than current ones who actively seek-out counterfeiters. We’ve all seen the fake Harley Champion tees that we learned were manufactured in Thailand and then imported by sneaky North American eBay sellers. Unfortunately not all of these forgeries are hack jobs, some are indistinguishable from the real deal even in the hands of experts.
It’s pretty scary stuff. Keep your eyes peeled and give us the heads-up if you spot something suspicious floating around eBay.
8/15/ Update: A source from Thailand confirms the Harley Champion tees are local but we’ve been told that the Screen Stars tags were actually manufactured in Pakistan and brought back to Bangkok.
