Father & Son Running Fake Supreme Stores Receive Heavy Sentence & Fine

It seems fake replicas of streetwear brands like Supreme and Bape have surged, coinciding with the brands respective growing popularity with skaters and young people. Many have traveled to China or ordered off of sketchy websites to purchase coveted pieces by these brands for a fraction of their normal price.

However, a massive fake Supreme operation was taken down this week as a father and son duo who ran the massive operation– opening stores in Europe and China and allegedly posed as the owners of the company– were sentenced to ten and three years respectively and hit with a $10.4 million fine for guilty charges on two fraud counts.
