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.

Jeans: A Short History of the Modern Wardrobe Staple

A pair of jeans is one of the most common wardrobe staples of today. People of all ages, occupations, social stations, and economic backgrounds own jeans of many varieties. Jeans weren’t always so ubiquitous, but once denim took hold of a generation of Americans, it solidified a space in worldwide fashion that’s bigger now than ever.

In modern times we automatically associate the term “jean” with denim fabric, but it wasn’t always so. The word jeans is derived from a 17th century European term, which described the various rough uniforms worn by labour workers. The clothing was often made of a fabric from the Italian city of Genoa and therefore referred to as “gene.” Though there is some debate among garment scholars about the origins of the term “denim,” one widely accepted theory is that the fabric got its name from a region in France called Nimes. A certain cotton twill fabric called “serge de Nimes” was adapted by early jeans purveyor Levi Strauss, who in the mid 19th century began using the cloth to make durable pants for gold mine workers in the American state of California.

The style of wearing jeans became more widely known to Americans in the 1930s when Western movies depicted cowboys, who were the heroes of the genre, wearing jeans. The style gained wider exposure when off-duty American soldiers wore jeans during the second World War, exposing parts of Europe to the modern item of clothing.

In the 1950s jeans made the leap from being known as a workman’s uniform to being a symbol of popular culture and fashion. Icons like movie actor James Dean popularised the item of clothing and branded the style as a symbol of rebellion among young people. Many learning institutions even banned students from wearing jeans to school. But the popularity of jeans couldn’t be suppressed by their taboo status. In the 1960s and ’70s jeans were adapted by the psychedelic and hippie cultures, who decorated the basics with embroidery and paint. During this period many people in non-Western countries regarded jeans as a symbol of Western decadence.

It was in one of the most decadent decades in modern history that jeans really took off as a big money maker for the fashion industry. In the 1980s high fashion designers began to produce jeans with their own labels, causing the demand and price of jeans to rise dramatically. Though the 1990s saw a dip in the popularity of denim, in the new millennium jeans were more important to a fashion lover’s wardrobe than ever.

Jean brands like True Religion and Rock & Republic became status symbols, as their jeans retailed for up $450 a pair. Whereas before an established fashion label could expand to produce jeans, now jean brands have the clout (and the dollars) to create full lines of ready-to-wear.
