    Fake name brand apparel is as silly to me as real name brand apparel. Is that T shirt really of better quality, more durable, or more attractive just because the name of a multi-million dollar corporation is on it?

    Are you serious, 9 times out of 10 the stuff that was in that store probably looked like cheap imitatation, with a cheap imitation price. I mean really its like 5 stores here that sale the same junk and people continue to buy it only for the name rahter rael or fake.

    Being a person from new york, and having bought of the street before, I believe some of these young kids who spend 200 dollars on jeans need to read this article. Some of these urband stores in shopping centers do no sell the real name brands you are buying. Educate yourselves on the brands and you can tell the difference.
