I didn't bother to ask what brand these are (something Colombian) because he doesn't speak English and mí Espanol es muy pocito.
But here is a knock off IH arc on a pair of Colombian jeans.

I'm ashamed to report that I was blinded by a (perceived) good deal on eBay and purchased some fake IH.  I've already requested and been granted a return, but the seller still claims they're authentic.  I know with 100% confidence they're fake, but I thought it'd be helpful to post an album showing otherwise.

The first five images are from the eBay listing, and the rest are mine.

Here's a list of details that are wrong: (I'm probably missing many other details)

* Fabric is not 21 oz, as advertised
* Constructional thread is the wrong color.  It should be tan, not green.
* Buttons and rivets are not correct.
* Back pockets do not have hidden rivets
* Inseam does not have double chainstitch
* Belt loops are not tucked into the waistband
* Non-selvedge fly
* Chainstitch around the upper part of the waistband.  IH uses a lock-stitch around the top and a chainstitch around the bottom
* Does not have "The Works" tag on the inside of the waistband
* The "W" on the back pocket is not stitched the same
* The leather tag is not the correct thickness
* Shitty quality  :D

Did I miss anything?

I'd say they're on par with department store jeans.  I'm a little surprised they're actually selvedge, though.

My guess is nothing. To people who don’t know he’s one of the nicest guys there is, I bet Mike looks pretty intimidating.

That was said tongue in cheek. To all who are wondering. Just a passing observation.

Those guys were afraid to make eye contact with me. I don't think much.
