There fake! Nothing personal, but they look fake!
Stand back and really look at them!

-Do these look like jeans you would pay upwards to $400 for?
-Do they look authentic worn out jeans? Is the wear on them consistent and over all?

The answer is no!

They look like someone tried to make them look old and come off looking very contrived. Have you ever seen jeans wear out and fade in specific places yet still look generally new over all.  Look at the inside of the waste band and the inside fly- brand new, hardly faded. The bottom half of the leg, compared to the thigh. The back seat of the jeans to the rest. The contrast in wear opposed to the not is too drastic. I hesitate to say- I imagine this would be in general and the easiest way to spot a fake. From what I have seen, the fake jeans are always evolving and getting better. Things like lets say the back waste label will change.
So looking for details like, the material of the waste label. The stamp on the back of the rivet, the extra label under the care one. Are good indications.


I own eight pairs of authentic. One of the pairs is the authentic of this knock off.

Although these do have many of the details.
 

>First off, how much were they? Where did you get them? That should be a good indicator there.


>They should one have two button snaps at the waste. These have three.

>On the back of waste button/ snaps it should have the word S E L E X with two stars. On the front of the snap it should have S E L E X written twice.

>Also the outside brand tag. Mine have a leather tag at the back with only the PRPS lettering written in purple. Almost as thought it was hand done. This pair has very clean manufactured label.

>I don't own every pair, but the ones I do own. The wash on all of them is a lot more even and natural and not so simulated like these ones.
None of them look contrived.  

>Under the care tag, there is a second tag with a two codes on it.

>The label the inside waste band of the back belt loop is lower and the bottom is sewn under the bottom stitching of the waste line.

>The PRPS stamped inside is faded like the ink was running out.

> The camo inside is washed out and faded looking.

 
The value- of used fake jeans. Well, to me- $0 to someone else-  whatever there willing to pay.

In general take the average price of fake PRPS and subtract 40%. If you got $20 for them. I think you would be doing well!
