new york - okay so the complete class, control and couth with which louis vuitton's lawyer, michael d pantalony, esq approached xxl magazine is commendable. the lawyer wrote xxl magazine in reaction to a FAKE pair of vuitton glasses they shot on rapper rick ross on the cover of their latest issue. pantalony's response was seething, yet civil and read the letter below. and someone please find out, is he single? i am very interested! thanks to janellle grimmond of vibe magazine for sending my way!  zandile blay

The XXL Editors received this letter from Louis Vuitton concerning the May 2009 cover of Rick Ross.

Dear Editor:

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. 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. 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 association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal. 

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to correct the confusion.


Michael D. Pantalony, Esq.
Louis Vuitton Malletier
