Fake Abercrombie & Fitch (personal experience)

March 20, 2008

I was glancing at some of the clothes for sale on the Yahoo! Japan’s auction service today when I came across a jacket which was advertised as Abercrombie & Fitch.

The genius seller of the auction was kind enough to offer proof of the authenticity of the jacket by providing a close-up photo of the tag. It’s not cool that they use the term “abakuro” in Japanese (the short form for “abercrombie”) in the title. There are a lot of sellers dealing this brand. As you’ll see from the photos below, it’s not that bad a copy. You kind of wish they’d take that skill and develop their own brand.

Here’s one of the jackets.
