Following a whistle-blowing, police discovered a fully equipped shop selling counterfeit designer clothes at the back of the Kruisstraat barbershop in Eindhoven. The clothes have been confiscated and the owner of the shop will have to answer for his actions, police said on Sunday evening.

The report on the fake clothes sold in the barber shop reached the police last week. Two officers decided to visit the salon.

The atmosphere has changed

“The staff stopped cutting and looked in my direction in surprise,” says Officer Jens, who is bald. “Now I have to say that’s the general reaction when I walk into a hair salon with my ‘hair already cut’, but OK.”

When he told the staff that he was there selling illegally counterfeit clothes, the atmosphere immediately changed. “I had to go out because they had absolutely no counterfeit branded clothes,” he said.

The officer was not fooled by this. He decided to take a walk in the hairdressing salon. “At the back of the living room, we found a fully equipped shop,” said the officer. “There were a lot of clothes. All kinds of brands: Fila, Adidas, Nike, D&G, Philipp Plein, etc.

Inexpensive fabrics, asymmetric cut

Staff assured the agent that it was original designer clothes. A specialist was then called in, who determined that it was a fake. “Inexpensive fabrics, asymmetrical cut. The seams were so bad that by the time you got to Woenselse Markt you would be walking in underwear.

The sale of counterfeit branded clothing is punishable in the Netherlands. Police find it even more annoying that customers are convinced that they are buying designer clothes at a discount.
