Wanna see the REAL threadless ripping off? go to Thailand(or just check this blog)

Hello dears.
I'm back from Thailand and i want to show you how many threadless fakes i found down there. Yep, beside diesel,abercrombie,cartier and tons of "main stream" brands, i was so lucky to see ripped off Threadless material in many many shops(and i assumed they sell a lot: many morons wearing them on the streets...).
Here a selection of pics, but you know, there was more and more. either in bangkok or in islands.






^Some of you may know that non-threadless design...
I saw at least 10 versions of stuck with pins' theme.ripping off a thief made me sort of bitter laughing...

^And that was the biggest surprise: they stole my "temptation" sub even if not printed(that shop had a couple of other unprinted subs)! I've been such of lucky on find it, it was a small shop in a pretty huge market. I didnt know if should i be sad or happy about that...anyways, i bought it, forgive my vanity..


So, WE ARE DEFINITELY FAMOUS!
aren't we?

I'd love to have seen the persons face if you had told them you designed that shirt and not given permission for it to be printed.

Then insisted they removed it from the shop and destroyed them else you were going to ring the cops.

i didn't think my shop was big enough to get ripped off! i didn't even have a big version of the image anywhere! any of my subs printed there erik?

well consider that there are streets full of shops in wich you can find diesel,rolex,nike,adidas,abercrombie and go on....that companyes seems to can not do anything against this phenomenon. its not on the shops itself obviously:there are factorys that works only like this, and the demand is probably very high..most of them come from china i guess

fastjumper

djeezz, that's insane.

But did you also get the 'I went to Thailand and all I got was this fake Threadless shirt' shirt?

plastikaa

its funny how they do it so obviosuly though... if they used one of two designs they could possible get away with it. But the fact they do loads and p[ut them all together in the shop.

And whats with the different labels... they made by different companies but then somehow all end up in the same rack in the same shop?

You should have picked your shirt up and just walked out the shop without paying... then on the acusation of theft you can just tell them taking what is already yours isnt theft.

fastjumper

i have nothing against the people of thailand or anyone that is thai, but it would be really funny if a bunch of "anti thai tees designs" were sent their way, just as a fun little jab.

tikitoaster

so how much do they charge for a shirt?

alacyt

This makes me reluctant to submit anything.

Anyone printed care about getting ripped off?

fastjumper

i told to the guy on the shop:
HEY THATS MY FUCKING DESIGN MAN!!!
he started looking at me as i was stoned...



so i got it for a special price and i left the shop

Luke...
Luke... profile pic Alumni

nope, i got paid...i cant realistically hope for anymore cash for my product, besides i would be much angrier about non-printed designs getting stolen...i just hope that i can be printed again, so that more thai people can sport me designs...haha

insane. but i kinda want a few anyway. especially temptation(why the hell didn't threadless print that?)


as the historic saying goes, "it's not stealing if it's in asia"
