The "Sunglass Pimp" Set The Record Straight About Rick Ross Shades On The Cover of XXL Magazine
If you've never heard of Jacob “Jack” Bernstein, you're about to get familiar.
According to Bernstein, better known as the "Sunglass Pimp," the shades worn by Rick Ross on a recent XXL Magazine cover are authentic Louis Vuitton Millionaire glasses. Earlier this week, XXL Editors received a letter from Louis Vuitton concerning the May 2009 cover of Rick Ross.
"The sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit," the letter stated. Bernstein however says the shades are authentic just slightly modified. Bernstein claims he customized the shades with solid gold accents for Rick Ross.
Bernstein explained, “It’s the same thing as buying a Rolls Royce and tricking out the entire interior, adding on a body kit, adding on the rims; after all that, you’re not going to call the Rolls Royce counterfeit. That’s the same service we provide for our clients with authentic pieces. Just because the product has been customized by me does not take away from the fact that the frames are authentic Louis Vuitton Millionaires.”
