Buying an authentic designer bag online is tricky

My opinion is that the best source for authentic handbags is an authorized dealer. Buying a purse from the Internet is a very risky decision. It doesn’t matter if you are planning on purchasing it from an online store or from ebay, there is always a high change that you’ll get tricked into paying a small fortune on a cheap knockoff. If you aren’t an expert than it will be really difficult to know what to look for when checking how authentic looking a bag is. This is why I highly advise you to go to a Louis Vuitton store if you want to be sure that you are actually buying a Louis Vuitton purse.

The price is an indicator for its authenticity

Indeed, second hand designer handbags can be found mostly online so there is no getting around it. This is why you should use the price as a realistic indicator for its authenticity. Even if it is a pre-owned purse, it can’t cost only a couple hundred dollars. A second hand designer handbag usually comes at half of its initial price, so if the new bag has the retail price of $2,000 then the pre-owned one should cost at least $1,000 depending on how well preserved it is.

Take a look at the hardware

When we are talking about ways of spotting a fake designer handbag, the hardware is one of the main things we should consider. Cheap quality replica designer purses have metallic parts that are made from a light stainless steel, with rough edges and without the proper markings and logos. Also, pay attention to the color of the hardware. Make sure that it is identical to the one of the authentic bag.

The stitching should be flawless

Designers pay great attention to the stitching of a bag, they make a real art from decorating their purses with some of the most complicated and flawless stitching patterns in the world. This is why it is essential to be careful at the stitching of the bag you are planning to buy. If the purse has an uneven, slanted or sloppy stitching then the product is surely a poorly made replica handbag. The number of stitches, distance between the stitches and the color of the threads- all of these are very important details that influence the authentic look of a purse.

Heat embossed stamp

It is no secret that the original brands have turned every stamp they emboss on their handbags into a complex way of authenticating the products. These stamps are very carefully designed and applied. This is the main reason why the heat embossed stamp represents one of the best ways of spotting afake designer handbag. My advice to you is to study very well the color of the ink, the font of the letters, the size of the stamp and the distance between the upper stitching of the bag and the stamp. On an authentic look designer bag, the stamp should be pretty high and close to the stitching. If the stamp is located in the center of the distance between the lock and the stitching then the product is definitely a cheap looking replica handbag. A very useful tip: on a genuine purse, the stamp will be look as it is part of the material.

A particularity of genuine Hermes handbags is that these have a blind stamp. Hermes does not make its products with the help of complicated machineries, but with the craft of experienced artisans who hand made every purse. These artisans are the ones who apply a blind stamp on the products, and this blind stamp represents the trademark and includes the date when it was made. This is why you need to examine the stamp of the Hermes bag and make sure that this isn’t embossed too deep, like machine stamped bags. On an authentic purse, the stamp can be barely seen, especially from a distance.

Simply follow these tips and you will surely be able to find easily a high quality replica bag to purchase, a pre-owned designer purse or even an authentic one. No matter what you are planning to buy, the above guidelines are very useful for identifying an authentic looking designer purse. I know that they may seem just some small details, but these are so much more than that. These are the actual differences between a fake designer bag and a genuine looking one, the differences between a satisfactory purchase and a huge disappointment.

Not long ago, spotting a fake was super easy, but these days replica bags are mirror images of the authentic products and you got to be an expert to know how to identify an imitation…or to simply read the below guide for spotting a Lady Dior replica handbag.

how to spot a fake lady diorThere are so many people online who sell fake Lady Dior Bags for a couple thousand dollars claiming that these are the real thing. Most often, shopper fall for it and end up paying a small fortune for a product that isn’t worth more than $100. This happens because buyers do not know how to recognize a Dior replica handbag.

The thing is that exact replicas are difficult to spot. These are so well made that when you look at it, you are positive that it is the authentic Lady Dior purse. Usually a basic and thorough comparison between the genuine product and the replica will clear things up. How much does it cost such an exact Lady Dior replica bag? The usual price for it varies between $250 and $700, depending on the online store where you buy it. If you haven’t bought a fake purse before and you need more information for understanding what are the main things you should compare between a replica Lady Dior and the real product there here you have some useful tips.

Quilting- Comparison is the key here

Compare the replica with the original bag. You can use pictures of the genuine product if you don’t have access to the real Lady Dior purse. The shape of the quilting is very important and it is considered one of the best ways of determining how authentic a Dior bag is. See how bulge the quilting really is. Can you see any irregularities or flaws in the stitching? Regardless if the bag is very used and has flat quilting or if it comes in flat cannage stitching and does have the iconic Dior quilting, you can still use the quality of the stitching to see if the bag is a cheap replica or an authentic looking one. Try to count each space and column to see the difference, check the bottom and sides to see where the stitching starts and ends. But the overall appearance of the quilting is enough to tell you how genuine a Lady Dior fake looks. This should have a beautiful elegance, one that impresses your sight.

Heat embossed stamp

Over the years, Dior has changed numerous times its embossed stamp. Normally, a heat embossed stamp has written on one side Christian Dior Paris and on the other side the date code. The company uses a clear ink that matches the hardware used on the Lady Dior handbag. This stamp needs to be clearly printed and without any faded portions. You usually need to turn around the strip to see the date code. No matter how good the replica will be, there will still be a visible difference between the stamp of the original purse and of the replica one. The date code helps you see if the particularities of the bag match with the designs that were manufactured during that specific year. If the Lady Dior is similar to the style manufactured by the brand in a completely different year then you will know that it is a poorly made fake. Another very useful tip is to take a look at the stitching on the leather tab and compare it to the flawless stitching of authentic purses.

Verify the lining of the bag.

There are numerous types of lining used for Lady Dior bags as the company changes the color, print and material of the lining from a year to the other. This is done as to make things difficult for replica manufacturers who are trying to constantly copy Dior purses. Particular types of lining are specific for certain Lady Dior versions and these should be compared to the date code that is heat embossed on the product. For instance, before 2005 most Lady Dior handbags were made with cannage lining so these should have a date code of 2005 for earlier. If you see a date code of 2013 on a purse with cannage lining then that product is clearly a replica.

Don’t forget about the handles

The handles of the Lady Dior handbag should be shaped slightly triangular with a semi-circular bent. Even though this sounds difficult to replicate, fake manufacturers have already found a way of copying this style of handles. My advice to you is to take a closer look at the space between the base and where the rounding of the handles start, and at the quality of the stitching. The space around and between the edges is important to examine. There is a big aesthetic difference between what you will see on a Lady Dior replica bag and what you will see on the authentic purse.

It is very spacious; there is enough room inside it to carry all your daily stuff. The interior is made of leather of the same color like the exterior. It has a zipper pocket and a simple and bigger one on the other side. The stitching looks good, there are n spaces there or missed places.

How to Spot a Fake Balenciaga Handbag

Categories:Other Brands

I am sure that you adore Balenciaga bags and that you would love to include one to your collection, but the tircky thing when it comes to buy one is to distinguish the really bad Balenciaga fake purses from the real thing. This guide will help you understand the main differences and it will ensure the satisfaction of your purchase.

Balenciaga bags

Look closer at the Zippers.

I know that you very often ignore this very small part of a handbag, but believe me it is one of the most important details of a purse. It can make the difference between an authentic product and aBalenciaga replica bag. The original company uses only zippers manufactured by Lampo. Fake handbags most often have the zippers marked with the word LAMPO instead of Lamp written in a slanted or italic font. This is a clear sign that the purse is fake. Plus, the “L” letter from “Lampo” needs to be extended under the other letter until the end of the word. The trademark symbol must also be present next to the word “Lampo”.

Examine the Leather.

The quality of the leather is the most obvious part of a bag, the part that clearly shows you if the product is genuine of it is just another poor quality Balenciaga replica bag. The original purses are made from goatskin or lambskin leather. This type of material is very soft, smooth and light. And the fascination of the Balenciaga goes on- it shines, but not too much. It is durable, but delicate. It is distressed, but not exaggeratedly cracked out. Also, the tassels are made from the same type of leather as the rest of the bag.

The problem with Balenciaga replica bags is that these use leather that is overly shiny and too cracked out. The overall effect is a very unaesthetic one and anyone could tell this poor fake bag apart from the genuine Balenciaga.

Pay attention at the Straps.

The straps are another very important detail of a Balenciaga bag to which I think we don’t pay enough attention at. An authentic purse will never have the end of the straps folded over. Only a poor quality Balenciaga replica bag could have this type of handles. Plus, usually, fake Balenciaga bags tend to have a more squared off bale.

And don’t forget the Handles.

Dear fashionistas, do not forget to check out the handles. No real Balenciaga bag has handles with a coated or finished appearance. A good quality Balenciaga replica bag must have handles braided or weaved with leather. This is called “sueded leather”, and has a very rough and unfinished look. It is more similar to shoelaces or rope. Most times, fake manufacturer fail at correctly cloning this small detail.

No one wants to buy a tacky replica bag that is outrageously obvious. In order to avoid the unfortunate situation of wearing a fake Balenciaga bag that everyone can spot as a replica, pay attention to all the above guideline before buying a knockoff. These advices will surely help you choose a Balenciaga replica purse that looks authentic, elegant and chic.

How to Spot Fake Hermes Togo Birkin

There is no doubt about the fact that the Birkin bag is one of the most expensive purses on the globe. It is the crème de la crème of all bags. All fashion conscious women would do about anything to be the proud owners of such a beautiful and luxurious handbag, but just a few are so lucky as to enjoy having a Birkin in their wardrobe.

At the moment there are so many Hermes Birkin bags out there that you simply cannot comprehend how such an elitist accessory can be at the reach of so many women. The truth is that it isn’t. More than half of them are fakes, but how can we tell the difference between an original Hermes and a replica? Well, there are a few things that make it obvious which bag is authentic and which one isn’t. You do not have to be an expert to identify these differences. You simply need to be informed so keep reading and soon you too will be able to spot a fake Hermes Togo Birkin 30.

The price is the first clue. A Birkin literally costs a fortune. It is an exclusivist bag and it is not the kind of product that a regular person could ever afford. Do not trust offers that seem too good to be true. Such a thing does not exist in the Hermes world. Believe it or not, used Birkin purses cost as much as the new ones and this is because these bags are exclusive products, handmade and not anyone has the privilege to find one available.

An original Birking Togo 30 will be manufactured from the finest leather and this will also influence the whole appearance and feel of the bag. To begin with, this specific leather is both smooth and firm, and it should have large grains-like texture. On a replica the leather or leather wannabe is not as smooth and firm, and the texture resembles to very small grains. Even the smell of the superior quality leather used on a real Birkin is particularly refined. A replica bag smells dreadful due to the chemicals used to process, smoothen and polish the leather. Lastly, the quality of the leather also influences the shape of the bag and of the handles. The high quality leather used on the original Birkin makes the bag stand firm and pronounced. The purse does not slouch or bulge at all regardless of its position.

A Hermes Birkin is a very detailed bag and every small aspect of its design makes it unique. The stitching is no exception. On a Birkin the stitches will always be neat and tight. You will never find any loose threads. And do not forget that all Birkin bags are handmade and not produced by machines.  Because of this important fact the stitching is saddle stitching which means that the stitches cross back and forth.

All Hermes Birkin Togo 30 have a stamp on their belt-like part and this stamp indicates two things: the age and this is marked by a letter in a square and the artisan’s ID formed by a series of digits and letters. These stamps should be neat and hard. Their legibility is perfect. On a replica these are not clearly stamped on the leather and the letters and numbers tend to be faint and weak. You can barely read them.

The Hermes Logo is always positioned on the front part of a Birkin and it is written in a neat and clear font. This logo will always say “Hermes Paris” on the first row and “Made in France” on the second one. On an original bag this text must be clear and highly legible. It will never be irregular, smudged nor be influenced by the texture of the leather.

The engraving on the hardware such as on the padlock and pull piece of the zipper, will always be thin and clear. Usually, fake Birkins tend to have a thicker and deeper type of engraving. Also, while studying the hardware take a very good look at the quality of the metal used and at the craftsmanship and polishing. Original Hermes bags use exceptional and very refined metals. These are carefully manufactured by specialized artisans and are flawlessly polished. Needless to say, the hardware on an authentic Birking Togo 30 will always look perfect.

All Hermes bags come with a dust bag. This means that there should always be a dust bag with a new Hermes Birkin Togo 30. Do not believe and accept anything different. Hermes pays very much attention to the dust bag as well. It needs to be made from a very good quality material and must have a high, neat and even number of stitches. It is available in light beige or in orange color and has a dark brown Hermes logo on it. Most replica dust bags come in a grey color and are stamped with a burgundy color Hermes logo. Additionally, the drawstring needs to be brown and made out of 100% cotton.

So before buying a Hermes Togo Birking 30 stop for a moment and analyze all these very important details. Make a short and quick comparison and see if the bag checks out as an original Hermes or not. Be a smart shopper and make sure that you purchase a beautiful Birkin bag that will compliment your outfits and make you look sensational each time you go out.

How to Spot Fake FENDI All In Tote

Categories:Other Brands

Fendi All in Tote 5

At the moment, Fendi is one of the most popular bags manufacturer and naturally also one of the most replicated brands on the market.  Let’s face it! Nowadays there are so many fakes out there and so well made that it has become incredibly difficult to distinguish a real Fendi bag from a good replica. The differences between an imitation and the genuine product are very subtle. Still, there are some few basic things you should pay attention to when trying to evaluate the authenticity of a purse. Things like the quality of the leather, the style and craftsmanship of the hardware, the logos, tags and other authenticity markings; these are the important details that you should study very closely. So if you have bought a bag and want to determine if it is fake or genuine, or even if you are thinking of buying a replica and want to choose an authentic looking one then you should keep in mind the following tips.

Fendi All in Tote 3

As expected, the first sign of a fake bag is the inferior quality leather. A Fendi Tote leather is manufactured from high end quality leather. This top quality leather is so firm that the bag stands up on its own without bending, not even a little bit.  Another important aspect is the smell of the materials used for the bag. Superior quality leather such as the one of authentic Fendi bags have that clean and specific leather smell. While on the other hand, on replica Fendi bags even if these are made from real leather, the quality and the smell will surely not be the same. Imitation purses smell like chemicals. The smell is very persistent and hard to stand. The manufacturers use many chemicals trying to imitate the shine and appearance of good quality leather, and this is what causes that awful smell.

Another very visible detail is the quality of the hardware. Real Fendi bags use only the finest metals and the craftsmanship is flawless. Take a look at the whole hardware of a bag and see if every single piece is made exactly in the same shine and color. Also, all luxury handbags manufacturers apply a very thin layer of protective plastic over the hardware to preserve its shinny surface. This plastic is meant to be removed only after the product is purchased by a customer. If you have bought a bag and it does not have the protective plastic over the hardware then this probably means it is just a Fendi replica.

Fendi All in Tote 2

A very subtle and very hard to spot difference is the stitching of the purse. This should match the main coloring of the product. Also, the stitches should be perfectly even and symmetric. Fendi bags do not have any stitching imperfections such as loose threads or small crooked threads.

Fendi All in Tote 4

All the logos, Fendi name and any other text applied on a Fendi bag should be engraved on the hardware or heat embossed on the leather. On most replica purses the authenticity markings will be simply printed on the surfaces, but this is not acceptable when you are looking for an authentic looking bag. It is a clear sign that the product is a fake.

The inside does matter, particularly when we are talking about a luxury bag so do not forget to look inside of the purse. Original Fendi models use linings made out of very good quality satin. This type of very good quality satin has a beautiful perfect shine. Also, the lining is supposed to be stitched on. If you look inside a replica Fendi bag you will see that the lining isn’t stitched on. It is glued into the bag.

Fendi All in Tote 1

At the inside of a Fendi bag you will also find the very well-known authenticity tags. There are a couple of particularities of these tags. Firstly, the Fendi hologram sticker should not be glued on and should never fall off. If you find a purse with such a low quality applied sticker then this purse is a fake. Secondly, the serial numbers from the tags are sewn and not printed.

Another important thing is the price of the purse. The price should be a clear warning regarding the questionable origins of the bag. Original Fendi purses cost about $500 to $3000 depending on the model and materials used. You cannot expect to buy such a luxury product for a couple hundred dollars or less. It is not remotely possible. If someone offers you a bag at this price then it is surely a fake Fendi.

Essential when you are looking to buy a bag and you do not want to end up with a very fake looking Fendi in your closet is to do a little research. Compare the pictures and information from the original Fendi website with the ones of the product you intend to purchase. Also, all Fendi purses are being sold with an authenticity card and this must match the serial number located at the inside of the bag. Simply follow these easy directions and I am confident that it will help you make an informed purchasing decision when planning to buy your next fabulous Fendi purse or even your first designer handbag.
