Streetwear, like all fashion, has a problem with bootlegs. Everyone knows it, and most people hate it, but stores still seem to get away with it. That is, until the feds find them.

Yesterday, Fear of God's Jerry Lorenzo took to Instagram to document one such raid on a notable LA store allegedly hawking fake streetwear.

The 427 North Fairfax store, known as Old School, was well known among LA locals for selling bootleg merch. Multiple commenters on Lorenzo's Instagram expressed their delight with the news, and sharing horror stories about the store.

One commenter wrote the store sold him fake BAPE, giving him a refund when he threatened to report them, while others asked how to get their money back.

In a now-deleted comment on a video posted by Guillermo Andrade of 424, Lorenzo also called out two other Fairfax stores (which we can't name here for legal reasons), suggesting they were also due a visit from the feds.

In related news, fake fashion and DIY streetwear is the latest street style trend to hit Korea.
