Caveat Emptor – TBOC Knockoffs

Membership in the Tactical Beard Owners Club on Facebook was meant to be for fun and camaraderie but someone has taken to using the club’s logo for personal gain. No sooner had TBOC released their patches, and SSD our story on the group, had unauthorized copies of the TBOC logo begun to show up at PX vendors in Afghanistan.

Both the t-shirt and cloth patch seen here are counterfeits and someone not associated with TBOC is profiting from their sale. Please, do the right thing and don’t support them.

    You can tell the patches were made in the land of sand, look at the shoddy stitch work…

    Man, thats messed up, I saw that article and thought…. thats cool as hell, wonder if I can join, but then saw its for current, and or veterans of the armed services, which I totally respect. So that really F’ed that someone would try and make some monetary gains off of something sort of special for the troops current and retired.

    Funny, I thought that the TBOC patch looked very similar to the Gear Whores Anonymous Patch… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV4Klfp_sIY

    My money is on it coming from China.

      Then you lost money. These patches are manufactured by local nationals (Afghans) that have embroidery shops located on bases such as Bagram and Kandahar.

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

    Why would it not surprise me in the slightest if airsoft stores are now selling fake, glue on beards so that fifteen year old can look like ubercool SF/PMC guys in their photos.

    This is a FAKEGROUP and the admin is a airsoftplayer and was never deployed in iraq or afghanistan! This is an affront against any soldier who served at war!
