Picking the Right Bag Every Time: How I Learned to Avoid Fake Bags

My bag game was non-existent until I decided to take the next step in my sartorial journey and invest in a genuine designer bag.​ This was something I thought I was beyond, until I learned the hard way that there are a lot of fake bags out there! So if you want to make sure you are getting the real deal when shopping for designer replica bags, here’s what I learned:

1.​ Check the price- I know this might seem obvious, but if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.​ Designer bags cost a pretty penny, and if something seems to be inching its way in the realm of too cheap, it’s probably not the real deal.​

2.​ Check the materials- I’ve been scammed before because the outside of the bag was real leather while the inside was all synthetic.​ To avoid this, check the material the bag is made out of and make sure it is consistent throughout.​

3.​ Examine the stitching- Fake bags will usually look cheap because the stitching is either crooked or just not done very well.​ If you take a look at the stitches closely, you can tell right away if it’s real or not.​

4.​ Check the tags- Designer bags will always have some sort of tag that proves it’s an official product.​ Be sure to check the font or logo on the tag to make sure it matches up to the product, and if not, it’s definitely a fake.​

5.​ Contact the shop- If you’ve done all of these steps and still aren’t sure if it’s the real deal, try to get in contact with the shop directly.​ Ask questions about the bag, and they should be able to provide you with the information you need.​

Now that I know the ins and outs of spotting fake bags, I’m never hesitant when I’m looking for a designer bag.​ It was a pretty steep learning curve, but by being vigilant and always paying attention to the details, I’m now armed with the knowledge of how to select the right bag every time.​

The next step I took in my bag journey was investing in a designer handbag.​ It was expensive, but I was determined to get the real deal.​ I knew that there were a lot of counterfeit replica bags out there, so I did my homework.​ I researched online to check the current prices for the bag and made sure the materials were consistent across the whole bag.​

I also learned to examine the stitching.​ It’s important to look closely at the bag to make sure the stitching is straight and consistent throughout.​ Fake bags will usually have crooked or uneven stitches, which is a pretty easy way to spot a counterfeit.​ And don’t forget about the tags! Designer bags will have some sort of tag that says it’s an official product, so make sure the font or logo matches the bag.​

But if all else fails, you can always try to contact the shop that you’re buying from.​ Ask questions about the product and they should be able to provide you with the information you need.​ The last thing I do when shopping for a designer bag is to read the reviews of the store or the product.​ This way, I can make sure the bag is a good quality and reliable.​

Next, I started looking for designer accessories to go with my bag.​ I wanted to get the real thing, so I followed the same rules I did when shopping for my bag.​ I checked the price, the materials, the stitching, and the tags to make sure I was getting something authentic.​ And of course, I called the shop or read the reviews before making my purchase.​

I also started paying more attention to the details of the bag.​ I started checking for things like the logo, the hardware, and the zippers.​ Real designer bags will always have top-notch quality hardware and zippers that feel sturdy and secure.​ Fakes on the other hand, are often flimsy and can easily break.​ Finally, don’t forget to check the dust bag! A lot of retailers will include a dust bag with their designer bags, so it’s a good indication of whether the bag is real.​

All of these little steps have helped me become an expert in picking out the right bag every time.​ It may seem like a lot of work, but it’s become second nature to me now.​ I take great pride in my collection, and I’m so glad I took the extra steps to make sure every bag is the real deal.​
