Hi all! I scored a NWT pair of Hudson jeans at my local Goodwill today but I'm not sure if they're authentic. They are very high quality (seeming), but they have a ribbon label sewn into the back. Does Hudson do white ribbon labels? The ribbon is 3.5" long and 7/8" tall with HUDSON in their font and Fine Tailored Jeans in cursive under it. The ribbon is attached with two vertical lines of stitching 3/8" in from the sides. Each line of stitching has seven long-ish stitches.
Also, there is a ribbon stitched inside the right pocket (stitched with the base toward the jeans so it arches over to show the printing), and this label says signature/boot cut, low rise/form fitting. There is a durable plastic/paper label sewn inside the zipper area, and it says care on reverse, made in USA in blue, and Hudson Jeans in orange. That one is stitched on with the same white stitching as the ribbon label, but under it sewn on with blue stitching is the size tag and under that is a tag with the style (CUT# A00116, STYLE# W170DHA, COLOR# VIS. The size tag says 30 and looks like authentic font. (The jeans are 98% cotton, 2% elastin.)
The grommets on the back are round with a hole in the middle and say HUDSON USA around them. The two front center grommets are the same. The tiny grommets on the pockets also say HUDSON USA and have a raised copper center. The inside of the grommets are smooth copper for the large ones and round with a hole for the small ones. The zipper is YKK.
The jeans look authentic but those ribbon labels look scratchy and they give me cause for concern. Thoughts?
