Who’s been a naughty boy then?

Eight suspects have been detained for allegedly mass producing fake BOY London clothing, Shanghai police said yesterday.

They had allegedly sold about 6 million yuan (US$900,000) of the British fashion brand fakes over the Internet before they were caught.

Police in Yangpu District, in which the sales agent of the BOY London brand in China is located, started their investigation in December last year.

The Fanjin agency had reported that a shop on was selling clothing marked with their brand for between 100 and 200 yuan. The real products cost more than 1,000 yuan. The clothing was identified as fake.

Police tracked two suspects, a man surnamed Wang and a woman surnamed Zang who are a married couple, to Yuhang District in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province, in March. They caught two others on the same day in a factory in Haining City in Zhejiang.

Police said they seized more than 13,000 pieces of fake BOY London garments at the Haining factory. The equivalent real garments would retail for 15 million yuan.

Later last month, four other suspects who allegedly produced the fake labels and accessories for the clothing in Hangzhou were detained.

Zhang Jun, head of the company Fanjin, said the material in the fake clothing was of far inferior quality to authentic BOY London merchandise.
