An interesting read in the thread about fake Hollister from Sports Direct and a signed letter from a shop saying it's not genuine.

I agree with you Hull. Not complaining though

How do you know they are an authorised retailer ?

Hull-Tommo

Is this another brand that Sports Direct are going to de-value ?Just like … Is this another brand that Sports Direct are going to de-value ?Just like Airwalk, Karrimor, etc.(Thanks for posting still OP, good prices)



Very valid point, A&F are a higher class brand, with Sports Direct stocking it can only go downhill...

Also looks like most of what they are stocking is from many seasons ago, i love A&F and from that page there are only 2 or 3 items i would be seen in! =P

If this really is A&F and they are a designer brand, my god, their clothes are hideous and the prices!!!! oO, something you would find in Primark or Peacocks (there is nothing wrong with that as their clothes are priced accordingly). What makes these clothes so good?

Just go on ebay and look at the cheap clothes you can buy from Korea/China, might be made in a broken down factory somewhere, but atleast the designers know what looks good.

because they have tills and they sell stuff

All these items are fakes, as are the Hollister items sold by sports direct website. I ordered quite a few items from them last week and could tell straight away they were fakes. I had an appointment with the manager of Hollister, whom has provided my written proof stating that these are all fakes. I have opened a case with PayPal for a full refund.

Hmmm, how will I be able to check if these are fakes when they arrive (I've bought a couple of shirts)? Something obvious like poor stitching?

How do we know they are an authorised dealer? They are probably not 'authorised' as such, as they don't authorise other merchants BUT, report them to A & F (as A & F ask you to do on their website) and you will get a very wishy washy response. That confirmed to me that they knew it was being sold and wouldn't be doing anything to stop it, so my concerns about it not being genuine were dispelled.

Surprised about the comments about them being fake as A & F, who are also Hollister, refused to confirm that for me. I wrote to their brand protection.

USC have also been selling A & F at a fraction of the price and I would say its not fake, based on 6 years of experience of buying it in the USA.

The letter on the tops are spaced wrongly apart and are not lined up properly. This was the most noticeable thing. But then I checked the labels, sum are really tiny sum are medium and sum are really large with a rim half way round the inside of the collar. The genuine items have the rim the whole way round the inside of the collar. This was pointed out to me at the appointment I had. I had previously contacted the Hollister website regarding this and have an email back from them also confirming they are fakes. They are taking the matter further. But PayPal required it in writing and stamped by the store, which is what I received tonight.

They just buy discounted stock and sell them. Just like TK maxx, the Hut (Zavvi) and 90% of clothing stores online.
They are legit but like someone pointed out, they are from many seasons ago. And designer clothes are only expensive when they are "in fashion".

@heather121 can you show a picture of that email then? These cheap stores often sell clothes that haven't passed the quality control. Hence the defects.

Once I receive my money back through PayPal, hopefully by tomorrow. Then I will upload the proof I have for anyone to use. As another deal was posted like this last week, and I know quite a few people made purchases. You can claim your money back up to 45 days of order if paid with PayPal.

Hollisters has never even seen sum of the designs I took to them tonight. Sports direct do not have permission to sell Hollister or A&F good.

I really doubt they sell fake clothing. Most likely they are imported from other countries. Of course abercrombie say they are not associated with sports direct, because they want you to buy from their own stores! (_;)

Tescos were buying Levi Strauss items from over seas and selling them for less than the Levi Strauss stores. Tescos lost the law suit because Levi Strauss wanting to control the prices of their products.

sports direct are not the only ones selling fakes. i purchased some timberland tops from the hut. and they turned out to be fakes. just because these big companies have flash websites dont think they are not getting away with selling fakes.

im no fan of ebay but at least the feedback system on there alerts anyone tnking of buying form a seller if the items are to good to be true.

think watch dog should have a look into this.

I think if they were selling fakes they would of been sued by now.

These are not fakes as someone has said. A & F + Hollister clothing is made all over the world. Some factory's use cheap materials and cheap labour and sports direct gets that stock + old stock that they couldn't shift elsewhere. Some A & F or Hollister clothing is great quality and costs more. Just because it says A & F on it doesn't mean it's quality. Sports Direct are this country's biggest supplier of sports clothing and would not be allowed to sell fakes.

Look, A&F do not want to be associated with Sports Direct which are known for selling cheap clothes while they hitch onto a premium brand market and pricing. If they confirmed these were really fake then there would be a massive booha all over the news to really confirm it. Sports Direct is a big company and as mentioned are probably getting the old stock that wouldn't sell and then sell it at knock down prices just like the Ed Hardy tat that doesn't sell for it's over-inflated prices and then is discounted on certain websites.

There's a big discussion here about The Hut selling fakes as one lady had fake Tommy Hilfiger stuff from one of their Ebay outlets.

Another deal here discussing Sports Direct selling A&F and Hollister

The Hut and Zavvi (same group) are well known for selling dodgy fakes (that's if they can be bothered to send you anything rather than just cancelling your order)

USC is also part of The Sports Direct empire.

They're not getting them direct from a&f for certain, so items could well be fake if bought from a middle man.

these are not fakes. A&F lawyers would be all over sportsdirect. old stock for sale. just go with it !!

I bought a pair of these jeans last week, and they seem legit! Compared to my one from A&F store,they seem to be the same, as in labels all in right place, all the tags and labels in the right place like in the shop.
The things I bought came in the same clear bags and labels as from A&F onlines shop too.
If they are fakes, they are very good ones at that!

Unless I'm missing something, why not just upload your 'proof' right now so that people can see it and make an informed decision as to whether to go with this deal or not?

As previously commented by others, I rather doubt that a large, national company such as Sports Direct are selling fakes. Seconds, last seasons stock etc, but fakes? Doubt it.

For the avoidance of doubt, I'm not into A&F but it's a good find - voted hot.

They are not fakes all fakes tend to be sold on ebay, they are bought in bulk from websites such as safebuyfromchina and dhgate. abercrombie and fitch do not own any outlets in the uk, however they do in the states. In the london store they are not allowed to sell reduced price ex season stock as it is a flagship store. also they make more money selling full priced items. therefore they sell haevily discounted stock to sports direct who hold the large warehouses needed to hold large amounts of stock. Fake items bought from websites other than official retailers or the genuine abercrombie and fitch website are all based in china. If it is is checked most have the courier service of EMS which is the chinese courier service. As it in known it is a criminal offence to supply couterfit goods so if they where im sure the customs would have something to say.

Some utter horse sh*te being talked on this thread.... these are not fakes, FACT! If they were then a) sorts direct would get busted for it and b) it would be all over the paper.

As people said above, no "premium" brand wants to be sold at knock down prices at a crap store like SD... the reason... every chav on the high street will be wearing it in no time and the brand won't be "premium" for long....

All the items on SportsDirect seem to match what is on offer at ljfashionhouse which is a website famous for selling copies. It sounds hard to believe they are selling fakes but I must admit it is very very fishy. (still waiting for the image from heather121 though!)

I've just this minute been refunded by PayPal. So I can now upload the proof I have. Can you please explains how I upload them. Thanks in advance

I have now been refunded by PayPal. Can someone please advise on how to upload to the site as I have the files saved, but hukd asks for a URL. Thanks in advance

We live in the UK and it is a criminal offence to sell counterfit goods. Im a regular purchaser of a&f and hollister and the items being sold are stock from the S/S collection 2010. I have worn the goods since a child and have bought from this site and they are definetly not fakes. So is it like TKMAXX selling ex season Ralph Lauren. At the end of the day a business is there to make profit A&F just need to get rid of the stock as it will cost more to hold it than to let it go. Just because it is manufactured around the world does not make it fake you go to 90% of retailers in this country you will find their items are also manufactured abroad. Lots of stock does not just dissapear of the face of the earth so when they get rid of the stock where do you think it goes ..to land fill?

this could be interesting...

Makes me laugh, A&F and Hollister are just regular run of the mill high street brands in their home country. The way people on here talk you would think they were some exclusive designer brand.

Being refunded by PayPal doesn't actually prove anything. I once sold a Paul & Shark top I bought at duty free on eBay. The person I sold it to reported it to eBay as a fake. Suspect it didn't fit him, anyway, final decision was to allow me to keep the money and they refunded the buyer through PayPal as well. It's just easier for them.

I would like to see something in writing from the brand. As said earlier, they refused to confirm for me that it was fake. Their lawyers would be all over SD like a rash if t was. As USC and SD have been selling it since March, think they would have done something by now.
