Like any other item of clothing that you want to buy, handbags also have lots of fakes in the market. Without the right information, you can end up spending a lot of money buying the handbag of your dreams, only to find out at the end of the day that it’s fake.
To prevent this from happening, take note of the following guidelines on how to tell the difference between a fake and a real handbag. As you know, it is safer and much more convenient for you to know… before placing your order. You don’t want to go through the stress of having to return the handbag when you discover that it is safe. In other words, prevention is better than cure.
- The most obvious differences between fake and real handbags is the misspelled logos you find on the fake handbags. Fakes don’t take the time to carefully make the handbags. If you look carefully you can spot some of the misspellings. Sometimes however, these misspellings can be intentional. They want to imitate a particular handbag brand but intentionally misspell the name so as not to enter into any legal trouble with the real company.
- Watch out for handbags with cheap leather. This is one sure sign of a fake. I know it is very difficult at certain times to identify if the leather is cheap or not, but if you take your time to look carefully, you will notice it. That is why you should never be in a hurry when shopping for the handbag of your choice. Take your time and look carefully before parting with your hard-earned money.
- To get real handbags and not fakes, always shop for your handbags from authorized and registered dealers- whether online or offline. Some of the places to find fake handbags are at home parties, flea markets, New York’s Chinatown, mall kiosks, to mention a few.
- Price is one of the most important determinants for identifying a fake handbag from a real one. The price of a fake handbag is usually cheap- to push you to buy. Don’t expect to buy a $500 handbag for $100. It just is too good to be true and is certainly a fake.
Doing the above can help you identify a fake handbag from a real one… and save you from falling prey to the many fake handbag dealers out there.
