    Default Mad as *&%$%*&(^(*&%^!!!


    *$*@#*$Y#(&&#^&!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you know what I have in my hands!? Read on, please.

    I received my Mike&Chris Ralston jacket and
    I knew there was something off about this sucker. I felt up the jacket for a good hour, compared the details to authentic ones online and just couldn't come to a positive conclusion about it's authenticity. Then I resigned myself to believing it was real; I mean the seller has like a bajillion feedbacks. Then I saw something on the internet that made me pause: If you hold a flame to something that is real leather, its going to stay the same; if you hold a flame to fake leather, it's going to melt.

    So here I am, 7:55 in the morning, in a tank and shorts, walking barefoot in the kitchen as I nervously clutched a lighter. Mr. Ralston is hanging from a hook on the door. Would I really be able to hold a LIGHTER next to this jacket whose authenticity I so doubted?


    It took me a good 5 minutes before I said eff it; Imma go for it. I held the lighter to the back of the jacket and watched in something akin to a combination of shock, horror, disbelief come over my face as the material started twisting, pulling, and melting before my eyes.

    I stood there and was like "dude." Yet, I STILL wasn't sure. I had to go and try to burn something that I knew was constructed of real leather, so I could compare and knew for sure.

    Yes, ladies...you're not going to believe this. After looking all over the house for something made of leather, I gave up and turned to my purse collection. I selected the cheapest REAL leather purse I owned, took a deep breath and attempted to light the strap on fire. IT DIDN"T MELT! At that moment, I finally knew I had a fake jacket in my possession.


    Okay end of rant. Now I need to figure out what to do

    Oh...OH...Gung. sorry to hear about your jacket
    I must say it took guts to try and set one of your loved handbags (even if it was a cheap one) on fire to make sure if it was leather or not!!!

    Did you buy the jacket on ebay? Can you contact the seller and demand a return?

    Keep us posted. good luck...hope this has a good end.

    OMGosh! I would be so mad! Please tell me you got it through Ebay. File a dispute pronto and send the sucker back. Leaving out the part about the burning of course.....

    OMG! First of all I am so sorry about your jacket Gung, hearing things like that
    just makes me fume ( no pun intended )
    Second of all, I can't believe you actually went ahead to test the burning theory
    on the jacket
    But most of all, I can't believe you then turned to your purse collection
    Love your guts lady. Hopefully you'll get a refund.

    Sorry to hear that! maybe you should just file with paypal since it is fake. I would do this before ebay changes their policy to NOT destroy fakes next month. That's right...they initially decided to have fakes destroyed, thought about it some, now they are backing out of that policy.
