Its a sad day. I went into "House of Flava" here in Mission Valley in San Diego yesterday, and low and behold, fake bathing ape items all over the place. Below are some pictures.
I asked the sales guy about the Animal Kingdom Hoody, he said "Yeah, its $220." I said, "That retails for like $300+ at BWS, there is no way that is real." He asked me how I know, and I gave him the run down on the print, zippers, pricing, ebay and such.
Also, the shoes, oh man, the shoes! They are selling $40 Ebay Fakes for $180!! I was pretty upset about that, because they are so clearly fakes. The stars are all in different places, wrong colored laces, no boxes, etc. But also, look at the Thors and Hulks, there is NO LOGO (thor/hulk head).
I am debating talking to the manager, or the corporate headquarters about this, because they are totally denying any wrong doing and I believe its fraud. What do you guys think I should do?
