Those, in my opinion, are fake. There has been some debate about them on another forum but the fact of the matter is that they are not normal retail pairs. The font on the tag is completely wrong and the wash code AVNG is for a completely different pair. The most logical explanation for these I've read is that they were possibly early versions of Henlee Empire System that somehow got out instead of being destroyed and now someone has tagged them (improperly) and sold them off.
I think the wash looks like garbage anyway and Empire System looks much better. I'd personally avoid these. They may not be 100% fake (as in, they were in the hands of R&R at one point) but they are definitely not a normal, for sale/retail pair of jeans.
