Hey was wondering if anyone knew if the LRG stuff they sell at the nitrogen store on george street are real or fakes? (i bought the dead serious hoody and im a little concerned now after discovering what i will type below)

I bought a new era cap from there and from what i could see when comparing with my other new era cap (which im sure is real) the tags on the one i bought from nitrogen were a little dodgy...

here are some pics of the tags


my legit cap




my 'nitrogen' cap




i dunno if u guys can see from the photos but u can kinda tell that the letters saying 'new era' and the size on the one from nitrogen looks a little bad quality as opposed to the legit one.. also the MLB logo onthe back of the one i got from nitrogen doesnt seem to look as clear either but i didnt bother with a photo of that because u'd prolly won't be able to see it on the black

yeah, I'm abit weary of Nitrogen

they have the SBTG SB Dunks there - and tho they sell it at $500, i have a gut feeling that it might be fake

same for their Bapesta selections...

Nitrogen.....

The place just feels like a glorified stall from Paddys or any other flea market.

Steer clear imo.

As far as the LRG stuff my friend, they are REAL. They are the LRG distributors for OZ & NZ, the distro company is partners in Nitrogen. The shit they seel is real, even the Bape and BBC gear is real. I went to Japan last year and am heading off again ijn 4 weeks so I saw some fakes and real Bapes and BBC gear in Tokyo, Im 99% sure Nitrogen stuff is REAL.
I have talked to the owners quite a bit as we are getting our gear stocked there in the next month or so, as far as the SBTG SB Dunks, were brought in from OS, so thats why theyre real and expensive. All Bape gear is brought in from Japan, so pretty legit gear.
Replicant, Im hearing you as far as the feel of the joint, not like the BBC store in Tokyo by a long shot, but I think theyre looking for some new locations around town to renovate and create a sweet store.
Hope this helps Dudesmile

thanks for the advice =)

another thing that just made me a little sceptical was the fact that they could afford to sell the LRG dead serious hoody (the skeleton one) for $188... and reduced down to $140'ish after 20% off... i thought that hoody was worth more than that?

and btw howd u find out that they're the distributors for OZ and NZ?

As I said Dude, we are getting our gear stocked in the store, so I picked their brains to see what their about and where their heading in the future. One of the partners owns a company called Espionage Brands who are the distributor for LRG and this was confirmed by a few shops we are going to get stocked in Melbourne, so all legit Brosmile
I picked their brains hard as I dont want our Label stocked in just any store, as we had a pretty big account set up here in melbourne and then I went into one of their stores and saw Bape tees for $50, the price wasnt the dead giveaway, but the absolute crap quality of print and design, FAKE FAKE FAKE!!! So I said "Thanks but NO Thanks", yeh cost us an order in the vacinity of 200-300 pieces, but thats nothing when our cred's on the line. No fly by the night label, so we cant afford to associate ourselves with shitty shops, thats why I scoped Nitrogen for quite a while and picked their braisn for like 2hrs. Pretty happy and secure with Nitrogen and the gear they sell, so you should be pretty sweet shopping their in the future, especially when our gear is in theresmile
