Well, my friend, I’m here to tell you about a rather amusing tale about my foray into the world of fake mcm bag men. It was a wild ride. I’d like to preface this story by saying, I’m not one to usually get sucked into something like this, but I think I may have been naive. I’d seen them on social media and I was curious; they looked so real! So, I decide to go down the rabbit hole.
I started my search online. I’d heard a few friends talking about various websites where they had bought mcm bags. Do you know what I found, my friend? Not a single one was actually authentic. Apparently, I was seeing a replica bags of an original. Now, I could’ve easily just carried on searching, but I decided to take the risk and try one out. I mean, it still looked really good to me.
So, I took a deep breath and purchased the bag. Although the ordering process was smooth and delivery was a couple of days after, I was feeling unsure. When the bag came, I tore open the packaging. My first thought was ‘what have I got myself into’. There were signs that this was a fake. The stitching wasn’t as neat, the material was poor in quality and the leather cracked easily.
The disappointment didn’t stop there. Why pay for a fake when you could just save your money and buy a real one? The bag wouldn’t last long, so I’d end up paying more in the long run. Not only that, but it was embarrassing when my nosy neighbour pointed out it was obviously a fake. Great! I was doomed!
It’s funny because at the time, I thought I’d found a bargain. Instead, louis vuitton outlet it felt like a scam. I finally learned my lesson – stick to the originals! If it looks too good to be true, it most probably is. I would ultimately end up spending more money in the long run.
Out of curiosity, I decided to dig deeper into the origin of these fake bags. From what I established, they come from factories all over Asia. Some of these factories specialize in producing exact replicas of luxury brands, mostly mcm bags.
This may come as a surprise, but some of these replicas are actually superior to the originals! They use high quality material but still manage to keep the costs low by cutting corners in terms of labor. Moreover, the best replica manufacturers use leather that looks and feels high quality, but it still won’t last as long as genuine leather.
You won’t believe this, but there are now some store fronts popping up in major cities that exclusively sell fake bags. They’re extremely hard to identify, and the salespeople never reveal the true nature of the bags. It’s as if they don’t want you to know.
I guess I naively expected to be able to get a fake for a really cheap price, but in reality, these bags cost almost the same as the real thing. It was a huge bummer. What surprised me more though, is that some people actually prefer these bags because they’re cheaper. Can you believe that?
There are certain techniques I’ve since learnt to identify fake mcm bags. For example, when looking at leather products, genuine leather has knots and scars while fake leather is usually a uniform material. Additionally, high quality leather has a strong smell while fake leather has a faint plastic smell.
The funny thing is, I still come across these bags on my social media feed and I can’t help but do a double take. They always look so real! It no longer tempts me though, because now I know the truth. I tell myself – stick to the originals.
