They are based out of China and are selling designer clothes and shoes. Prices seem too good to be true, so I thought I would check to see what people think.

Hi jnls4,

Stay AWAY from this one. They are located in Guangzhou - China's clothing/fashion capital, so the likelihood of buying counterfeits is very high.

Although, you have to admit that many products even genuine one's are made in China. Lets for example, Nike has a factory manufacture 100 running shoes, the factory will make 200 instead and sell the other 100 through unauthorized channels within China. So even though the factory is authorized by Nike to manufacture their products they are NOT authorized to sell and distribute - thus we have counterfeits!

So even if these brand name clothing were sourced from official Chinese manufacturers they are ultimately classified as counterfeits since they are sold through unauthorized channels.

Hope this helps :)

I kinda thought that was the case based on what I've read hear. I am really into the Affliction style of clothing and when I saw tags and their prices, I was hoping it was possible but really knew it wasn't! I haven't had much success finding a supplier for Affliction clothing. E-fashion Wholesale has some, but even buying in bulk, they are $35 each which means I have to sell them for more. From what I've seen on Ebay, they don't sell for much more than $35. Oh well! Thank you for the information.

Oftentimes brand names such as Affliction are hard to come by. The brand owners have implemented measures to restrict distribution only through their approved dealers.

Another option that might be viable is through liquidation. But stocks will vary greatly so you will have to keep an eye out for it as often as you can.

Cheers!
