Women’s True Religion Jeans – Are Those Fake True Religion Jeans?

Women’s True Religion jeans are a hot item in the women’s designer clothing market right now. Unfortunately, when shopping for women’s True Religion jeans you must be aware that there are faux, phony, and fakes out there creeping their way into the marketplace and into innocent consumers’ closets! Not only are impostor denim jeans made of sub-par material in a sub-par production process, they can also indicate that a person wearing them has no true “sense” of fashion. Read on for some hints on identifying fake True Religion jeans.

True Religion jeans have uniquely shaped pocket flaps on both back pockets and the front coin pocket. Their uniqueness comes in the shape of a well-defined downward point in the very center of the flap with well-defined curves extending upward and outward toward the edges of the pocket. Fake True Religion jeans seldom have this design, but rather mildly curved cuts and sometimes even straight cuts.

Still paying attention to these three pockets, the True Religion embroidery pattern looks like a deep horse shoe with flared ends with large, prominent, silver rivets. This is perhaps the most identifiable feature on a pair of True Religion jeans. Impostor brands typically have a horse shoe that doesn’t cover the entire area of the pocket leaving about a 1-inch “gap” between the bottom of the horse shoe stitching and the bottom of the pocket as well as using smaller “Levi’s style” brass-colored rivets.

True Religion jeans have a Buddha on the back outer tag. If the Buddha is gone, then the jeans are fake! The Buddha should be bright red and highly detailed. Fake jeans will have a buddha that might be a darker shade of red or a Buddha with a “blurry” appearance because they could not replicate the intricate details of his body, especially his fingers. The inside tag will have some features to note as well. First and foremost, the bottom of the tag should say, “made in USA” (spelled EXACTLY like this but without the quotes) and immediately below that will be the size. Some more subtle things to notice on this tag is a slight dip of the letter “J” in the word JEANS and the silver micro-stitching at the bottom.

These are a few things to help you identify fake True Religion jeans. Of course as the seasons change, these features may change as well, but if you put this information to use, then you are more likely to buy an authentic pair of True Religion rather than be scammed.

True Religion Brand Jeans – Buy the Real Thing Online Without Getting Ripped Off

Sometimes counterfeit designer jeans are made so poorly that it’s hard to believe that anyone in their right mind would believe that they were real. Other times, however, it is not quite so easy. True Religion brand jeans are among the most sought after in the world, and therefore they’re also among the most counterfeited. Before you commit to making a purchase online, there are a few things you should consider.

Like they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you find a seemingly generous site offering True Religion Joey jeans at a bargain price of $39.99 new, it’s pretty safe to say that they’re fake, or at the very least they’re defective. If you feel the slightest bit suspicious about a deal that any given site is offering, you should probably seek your jeans elsewhere.

Just because the jeans appear authentic in the images does not necessarily mean that they are. First of all, it can be very difficult to tell the better fakes from the real thing when they’re being viewed online. Secondly, even if the site does display photos of authentic True Religion jeans, that certainly doesn’t mean that the ones that show up in the mail will be the same. Knock-off sites are big fans of the old bait and switch method.

Find out where the jeans are coming from. If the company is located in some remote part of the world, it may be a red flag. Businesses being operated within the United States are much more likely to be selling the real thing, since they’re regulated by laws that international businesses may be exempt from. If the website you’re looking at does not prominently display where their business is located, try looking up information about the domain on Who.is, which will give you information about the registrant of the website.

Search the internet! There is no better way to find out whether or not a site is selling authentic True Religion brand jeans than by finding out what other people are saying about it. Any site that is known to sell phony products will likely have plenty of negative reviews littered all over the internet.

I’ve heard a lot of fuss lately about eBay in regards to whether or not the True Religion jeans sold on there are authentic. In many cases, yes, they are. Then again, in many other cases, no, they’re not. It really just varies from seller to seller. All of the other precautions still apply. If the jeans you’re checking out come with an oddly low starting bid, it may be an indication that they are not authentic. eBay’s feedback system is a great way to get a better idea of whether or not you can trust any particular seller. Viewing the seller’s feedback will allow you to see exactly what their past customers have had to say about them.

Distressed Jeans and Used Jeans – What’s the Difference?

When you scour through the seemingly endless supply of websites a Google search yields raving about the latest popular designer jeans you will find one thing in common: their price. Designer jeans for whatever reason are going to cost you hundreds of dollars in the most popular department stores and high-end boutiques. There is one more common trait, it seems, having to do with the style of designer jeans. Holes, rips and tears, threads fraying on edges, all mutilated by a machine and labeled appropriately, according to fashionistas, as “distressed jeans”. Ironically, people still pay the markup on designer jeans beat up with these unnatural wears. But designer brands wouldn’t associate themselves with poor quality denim, and it appears that their quality jeans do hold up for years and years despite their “used” condition out of the box.

If style is what people are truly after, wouldn’t it make sense to find a pair of naturally worn jeans, since this is the precise style designer brands try to mimic? After all, pre-owned jeans cost a fraction of the price of new jeans and we all know that jeans last a lifetime. In fact, denim to this day is the most durable pant material since Levi Strauss made jeans so famous with gold miners in the West. Could you picture the typical response after telling one of those hard-working miners that in the future, young rich kids would be buying torn and tattered jeans for 5 times the price of your average jeans?

You can never question fashion because it is a statement, so we won’t talk about the reasons why distressed jeans have become so popular. Quite simply, distressed jeans are a hot commodity. Men and women alike can show off a little more skin with a tear here and a rip there. Celebrities started wearing ripped jeans and people caught on to their fashion trends. But who wants to pay celebrity sized prices on a pair of jeans? The truth is most of us are not celebrities and we don’t make as much money as we want to. You may feel comfortable in that pricey pair of designer jeans, but just think about how comfortable you will be when your credit card bill arrives in the mail. We are already in a bind with the current state of the economy. Many people are trying out as many ways as they can save and scrape in a little more money just for some peace of mind. You can too.

If a new pair of jeans is what you are after, but don’t want to pay as much, I would recommend a few places online. Craigslist. Underneath the “for sale” section you will find “clothing+acc”. Within this category search for “jeans” and you will find a gold mine of savings. People are selling all sorts of jeans here in your hometown – used and new, all bargains. For example, just now searching I found a used pair of True Religion designer jeans, my size for $20 in excellent condition. You really couldn’t beat that. eBay would be another great place to search for used jeans, but they also have new designer jeans for much lower than retail. The great thing about eBay is that you don’t have to drive around town to locate your seller – eBay sellers ship to your doorstep. eBay also has a much larger selection of jeans to choose from, and you are most certainly going to be able to find your size. Lastly, I developed my own website (featured below) that is focused on the pre owned jeans niche and makes it really easy for people to find their sizes and their favorite brands, which are all used jeans you can buy right now on eBay. With these three recommended websites, you are on your way to take your style one step further while saving loads of money on jeans. You could also hop on the band wagon and start selling your used jeans on Craigslist and eBay, to effectively fund your future used jeans purchases.

I hope you will never have to buy another pair of expensive jeans again. Jeans are meant to be worn until they can’t be worn any more. Jeans can last a lifetime. If you get tired of them, you can give them to charity, sell them on eBay or hand them down to a loved one. A pair of Levi’s over 120 years old sold on eBay in 2005 to a Japanese collector for $60,000. I’m sure they could still be worn today. Start buying pre owned jeans from a reputable source, the person who bought them from the store, brought them home and wore them originally. That way you’ll have a complete history if you really wanted it. The only thing you need to do to make jeans look new again is put them in the wash, because if they come ripped and torn on retail racks, your new pair of jeans may as well be in someone else’s closet, or better yet being worn by someone else.
