Get yall money up. Those glasses are customized by Jacob Bernstein.

Bernstein has customized sunglasses for a number of actors and entertainers, including Jay-Z, Kanye West, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Sharon Stone, Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Brad Pitt, Usher and numerous others.


It’s the same thing as buying a Rolls Royce and having it tricked out; just because the product has been customized by me doesn’t take away from the fact that the frames are authentic Louis Vuitton Millionaires," Bernstein told AllHipHop.com.

if they're Loue V millionaires why did LV go out of their way to call them fake and BOOTLEGGED?
Becaused the glasses were not customized by Louis Vuitton they were customized by Jacob Bernstein.

If you got the money you get your Louis Vuitton glasses customized by Jacob Bernstein, just like Brad Pitt, Jay Z, Sharon Stone, Kanye West, and Rick Ross.

I don't know why these entertainers give so much free promotion to these companies anyway. Especially since they don't like us and don't want us no-where near their product.

That wasn't my point though. It's not that Rick Ross was advertising them, or that LV didn't customize them (because they were basically LV's, they just didn't customize them, he went to somebody else for that). My point was bigger than Ross and the glasses. These rappers are always giving these companies free promo in their songs and always shouting them out, for nothing. They don't get no stake in the company, they don't get no check or anything. So they shouldn't be surprised when they don't want our dollar or business. They shouldn't be surprised when these companies put these artist on blast like that. It's bigger than Ross and his situation. I was talking about the genral scope of the big picture.

Florida rap star Rick Ross is hitting back at reports that the Louis Vuitton’s claims that the sunglasses he wore on the cover were fake by producing the designer.



According to Ross, the sunglasses worn on the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine were customized with solid gold accents by Jacob Bernstein, AKA “The Sunglasses Pimp.”



"It’s the same thing as buying a Rolls Royce and having it tricked out; just because the product has been customized by me doesn’t take away from the fact that the frames are authentic Louis Vuitton Millionaires," Bernstein told AllHipHop.com.



Ross appears on the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine wearing a pair of Louis Vuitton - like frames.



Controversy erupted yesterday (May 11), when a representative for Louis Vuitton issued a statement disassociating itself with XXL Magazine and Rick Ross over the glasses.



“We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks,” stated Louis Vuitton Malletier Michael D. Pantalony. “Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.”



“The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit,” Pantalony clarified. “Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or a.ssociation exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal.”



Bernstein, who was responsible for Ross’ customized shades, is well known in the world of fashion via his Los Angeles - based business, Jack’s Eyewear.



Bernstein has customized sunglasses for a number of actors and entertainers, including Jay-Z, Kanye West, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Sharon Stone, Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Brad Pitt, Usher and numerous others.

Of course he says they are real
Just like that wasn't him in the picture...

What I find amusing is... The Ross cult here on bx will undoubtedly believe him over Louie f**king Vuitton themselves.
