There are many about and they are good copies don't get me wrong although sellers are not always willing to confirm they are not authentic, and sometimes you could be paying well over the odds for fake R&R jeans when you could be getting the real thing for a bit more!

HOW TO SPOT FAKES

 

1: R&R JEANS ARE VERY LONG AND DON'T COME SHORTER THAN A 34" LEG IN BLUE DENIM. IN WHITE THEY DON'T COME SHORTER THAN A 33" LEG.

2:THE CROWNS ON R&R WILL BE VERY CENTRAL AND STRAIGHT, THE STITCHING WILL BE NEAT AND TIGHT. THE CROWN IS A STANDARD SIZE FOR ALL STYLES OF JEAN (IE:ON LARGER JEANS THE CROWN MAY APPEAR SMALLER THAN ON SMALLER SIZE OF JEAN). ALSO THE FLOWERS ON THE NON-CRYSTAL JEANS WILL BE RAISED TO THE TOUCH. ON THE CRYSTAL CROWN JEANS THERE SHOULD BE 49 CRYSTALS.

3: R&R WILL HAVE TWO LABELS ON THE INSIDE OF THE JEANS. ONE IS FOR THE SIZE WHICH WILL BE ON THE LEFT HANDSIDE. THE OTHER IS FOR STYLE, COLOUR AND WASH, WHICH YOU WILL FIND ON THE RIGHT HANDSIDE. R&R WILL ALSO SOMETIMES HAVE THESE TWO LABELS TOGETHER ON THE INSIDE AT THE FRONT OF THE JEANS. ON THE OLDER STYLES YOU WILL ONLY FIND ONE LABEL WITH SIZE, COLOUR, STYLE, ECT ON THE LABEL.

4: THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF SIZE LABEL BOTH WILL HAVE ROCK & REPUBLIC IN BOLD BLACK STITCHING AND BE VERY NEAT. R&R HAVE CHANGED THERE LABELS IN A BID TO STOP COUNTERFEITS. ONE STYLE OF LABEL WILL HAVE DIGITALLY MASTERED IN THE USA. THE SIZE IS EMBROIDERED IN RED STITCH. THERE IS ALSO A STRIP OF SILVER WHEN MAGNIFIED REVEALS A CODE. ON THE BACK OF THE LABEL WILL BE RA# AND CA# CODES. THE SECOND STYLE OF LABEL IS SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN THE OTHER LABEL AND WILL ONLY SAY ROCK AND REPUBLIC AND THE SIZE IN RED EMBROIDERED STITCH. 

5: THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF STYLE CODE LABELS, BOTH TYPES WILL HAVE VICTORIA BECKHAM FOR ROCK & REPUBLIC AND CONTAIN STYLE CODES, CUT#, MATERIAL AND CARE INSTRUCTION. THE NEWER LABEL IS ON A BUMPY CANVAS FEEL/LOOK TO IT. THE OLDER LABEL IS PAPERY LOOKING AND SHOULD NOT BE SHINNY.

6: SOMETIMES YOU WILL ALSO FIND A AUTHENTIC LABEL WHICH WILL BE BEHIND THE STYLE LABEL. IT WILL HAVE THE R&R SYMBOL WITH AUTHENTIC UNDERNEATH. ON THE OTHERSIDE OF THE LABEL WILL BE BOLD BLACK NUMBERS WHICH IS THE AUTHENTICITY CODE. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF THE JEANS DON'T HAVE THE SILVER AUTHENTIC STRIP ON THE SIZE LABEL THEY WILL HAVE A AUTHENTICITY LABEL WITH CODE. ONLY ON A FEW PAIRS YOU WILL HAVE NETHER.

7:  YOU WILL ALSO FIND TWO SMALLER BLUE LABELS ON EVERY PAIR OF R&R JEANS. BOTH WILL HAVE R&R BACK TO BACK IN WHITE BOLD STITCH.ONE YOU WILL FIND ON THE RIGHTHAND SIDE ON THE OUTSIDE NEAR THE POCKET. THE OTHER WILL BE ON THE INSIDE NEAR THE BUTTON.

8: THE ESSENTIAL VICTORIA BECKHAM TAG ON THE REAR OF THE WAIST BAND WILL ALWAYS BE NEATLY STITCHED AND THE CROWN WILL BE PERFECT AND BOLD. THE SIZE OF EACH LABEL IS THE SAME SO ON SOME JEANS IT WILL BE OVER THE SEAM AND ON OTHERS JUST TOUCHING.

9: THE BUTTONS WILL HAVE ROCK & REPUBLIC GOING AROUND IT AND R&R BACK TO BACK IN THE MIDDLE. THE ENGRAVING WILL BE RAISED AND DULL LOOKING. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF RIVETS AND BOTH WILL HAVE ROCK & REPUBLIC GOING AROUND IT. THE FIRST TYPE WILL HAVE R&R BACK TO BACK ON THE INSIDE OF THE JEANS. THE SECOND STYLE WILL HAVE CONCENTRIC CIRCLES, BOTH RIVETS WILL BE DULL LOOKING.

10: AND FINALLY R&R IS A PREMIUM DENIM AND SHOULD BE TASTEFULLY FADED. ALL WHISKERING AND FADING WILL BE IN THE RIGHT PLACES AND THE DENIM BUTTERSOFT TO THE TOUCH
