Baby Phat Counterfeiter Sentenced, Not the Only Fake

Now, this is mighty funny considering that a bunch of fake asses are running Baby Phat as I type this. Earlier this week, a Clinton, Iowa man was sentenced to more than 3 years in prison for trafficking counterfeit goods by top designers, including Baby Phat, Louis Vuitton, Coach, Chanel and Nike. From the Quad City Times:

Charles Edwin Sampson-Snyder, 56, who operates a store named Bama's or Bama & Heather Clothing, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Davenport in February.

He admitted to purchasing and selling $100,000 worth of counterfeit merchandise.

Maybe he was working for Kellwood Company because they damn sure are doing a lot of poaching and counterfeiting right now themselves with their failure to formally let the Baby Phat customer base know that Kimora Lee Simmons is no longer heading up the brand.

Don't buy any apparel from them. Nothing. Not even a pack of shoestrings. The cowardly bastards haven't had the decency to speak to the Phat Fashions customer base as respected clientelle in the face of such a shake up, so let's let them listen to the silence of untouched clothes on a department store rack. Go here to find a number of ways to support Kimora, including information on how to purchase one of her six fragrances. No respect? No dollars. --Sugar
