And you bought it Neutral Face

Like I'm trying to understand the purpose of these fake labels.

Well there's no sick fadez left to be copped now that the regimen cannot be admired in all its glory
RIP sick fadez.

Should buy some supreme labels and stick it on a red sweater and sell it to the RFDer who wants to buy a fake one cause he can't afford the real deal.
Current Fido customer.
Ex Koodo customer. Beware of their tactics.

A lot of places in Asia, if you look hard enough, has these "factory rejects" wholesale store, stocked with clothing from the factory that makes the real thing by contract but either had overruns, QC issues or excess samples and the label usually wouldn't want then leaked to the street but they do anyways since there is a real cost to the factory. By the time these type of stock get sold to the wholesale, they are required to have the label cut or sharpie over the brand. So, I can see where these type of labels would be handy for these type of cloths. It wouldn't be pretty pointless to just put these labels on random cloths but if you got a factory reject and the only issue is the label, then replacing it would make your cloth worth more now.

This made me laugh. Because 40+ years ago when I was a tween I'd take the labels off my worn out Levis (which were a luxury and I only received as a Christmas or birthday present) and sewed them on the hand-me-down cheapo jeans/shirts that my parents got for us kids from their friends and relatives.
