This article is a quick overview of how to tell if your handbag is authentic or if it is a knock off. Many people are in love with designer handbags. Some women have collections of 25, 50, 75, or 200. My future mother in law has about 75 of them, but she only uses about two. Whether you use them every day or if you just collect them, designer handbags are a huge business. To capitalize on the market, many people sell fake handbags that look identical to the authentic handbags. If you do not want to fall victim to this, then read the rest of this article.
The first thing that you must take into consideration when you are trying to buy an authentic bag is if the store is reputable. There are some places where you can buy great authentic designer handbags. Some stores will have an area of for knock off handbags and an area for real ones. Just because it is expensive does not mean it is authentic. People sell off fake handbags as real all the time, and make huge profits. The most important thing to remember while buying a handbag is to only buy from a reputable store. You may want to stay away from places that sell both authentic and knock off handbags, because it is easy for them to get mixed up or for people to sell them to you on purpose. There are a lot of good online stores where you can buy authentic handbags. Ebay and auction sites no longer allow people to sell fake handbags, so you can get some really great deals if you know what to look for online.
The inside of the handbag can tell you a lot about how well it was made. A real top designer handbag is perfectly constructed inside and out. The stictching will be perfect and everything will appear seamless and perfect everywhere on the bag, including inside all the pockets. Most cheap knock offs do not take the time to do a good job on interior stitching.
It is hard to tell if something is real by the outside, because fake purse makers have stepped their game up. A lot of knock offs now use real leather, even the good stuff. But still, designer handbags always use the best leather available, that is consistent and does not have any discoloration.
You always have to be on the lookout for impostors when shopping for purses. Sometimes even a store can be fooled. By going to a reputable store, and by inspecting the interior and exterior of the purse, you will cut down your chances of being ripped off when buying a designer purse.
