Instagram-based fashion detectives Diet Prada made a name calling out brands for stealing ideas, now they take aim at Amazon for allowing a familiar product to be sold on its site: ALYX‘s signature rollercoaster belts.

Diet Prada uncovered fake ALYX belt buckles selling on Amazon for the impossibly low price of $7.52 USD.
