Does anyone know how to tell if Levi's jeans are fake, or if they're factory seconds/defective?

One of the easiest ways to tell if the Levi's are fake or not is looking at the leather tab on the back, the buttons and rivets, and the sticker that has the size. For some reason the imitators cannot replicate the way the sticker is.

Not all Levi's have the R on the red tab. It's odd and I don't know the exact number but they will randomly select pairs and not put the R but that doesn't mean you are getting fakes.

You have to be careful b/c there are so many imitations out there especially with the Shrink To Fit jeans. Been shopping with this company for years and they have a nice selection and styles and colors you won't find at other stores. has a coupon code "online" which can be used for $10 discount on all orders over $100.

I have bought a pair of 501 levis from a website and very cheap. It is original. You can go and look at the website.
