Damn shame, I've lived in Austin for the last ten years and while I'm not in the music biz I've never heard of that shop. They've probably gone under because of stories just like that!

Only denim drama I can think of is a certain Japanese repro brand going to a trade show and asking a vintage seller to buy some pieces. He set them aside for the brand and went off to lunch or something. While he was gone they went through his vintage stuff and photographed everything and left without buying any of it. They went on to copy and reproduce the pieces they told the vintage seller that they would originally buy. That left a bad taste in my mouth and I haven't looked at much from the brand since. Take it all with a grain of salt since this isn't first hand knowledge or experience, just what I've heard.

Not surprised at all Carl, when I played in a few bands (late 1980’s) The folks working at the music shops I frequented...
These folks were bottom feeders, they made used car salesmen look legit.

Bro- it’s strange, I feel and believe I’m correct when I say, most Japanese would never actually steal something- but when it comes to taking pictures, they have no problem stealing that way...this has never applied to me- since I’m not a dealer, I’ve always let anyone take as many pictures that they want- but from a dealers perspective, it’s flat out theft.
