How to Spot a Fake Designer Handbag In 7 Steps

5276 ratings | 670766 views
How to choose the real designer handbag and spot a fake handbag? How to differ fake from real easily? Buying a luxury car for men: you have to be very attentive to small details and know everything about your dream handbag. That’s why we decided to create a short yet very useful guide that will teach you how to choose the real thing. TIMESTAMPS Pay attention to details 0:44 Check clasps, buttons, and zippers 1:15 Pay attention to the materials 1:49 Check tags and labels 2:15 Take a closer look at its serial number 2:41 An expensive handbag always has expensive packaging 3:03 Each brand has its very own distinct characteristics 3:25 SUMMARY - All of the stitches should be perfectly even, and there should be no loose threads or any other visual defects or imperfections. All genuine designer handbags are handmade. - Pay special attention to small things like metal clasps, buttons, zipper pulls, plates, and locks. Their quality should be perfect, and they should have a number or a name printed on them, which is another sign of quality and authenticity. - A famous brand doesn’t use rough leather. They only use fine, high-quality materials. When you touch them, you feel like you are in paradise. - Fake items often have the brand names printed in different fonts, smudgy letters, or even with misspellings. Tags and labels are always a giveaway. - The label with the number is sealed and attached in a special way, making it impossible to remove without damaging. Fake items usually have a sticker with a number that has just been glued somewhere on the surface. - An expensive designer handbag always has expensive packaging, often made of the highest-quality materials. The package your precious bag comes in should have no color defects whatsoever. - Before visiting a store, do some research on the specific attributes of the chosen brand. Remember – each brand has its very own distinct characteristics. Do you know other ways to recognize fake bags? Share your experience with us in the comments down below!

Who cares if its fake or not. You get what you can afford. Should be legal to sell knock offs.everbody cant buy the name brand stuff so why is that against the law

By the way - designer handbags can be very valuable - they are prized and sought - after collectors items.

A friend of my sister came to work one day sporting a new Louis Vuitton handbag. The price? R27 000. The friend's sister who is married to a very rich man, bought it for her. At that time I was out of work and when I heard the story my stomach curdled...

I should have known all this before I married my husband...

Wow. Too much work for a purse!
My daughter buys my bags for DOB in past or gave me the designer bags she no longer wanted. For sure they were not fake. Better to purchase directly from the designer store

It’s Hermes (er-Mez) not Hermees - if your going to talk about it then at least say it right!

The sad things that I bought around six hand bags from big brand shops with real same prize then they later turn out to be fake ,if even the fake one would tears ,or don't peals in short time of use then you throw it later it wouldnt be such a DISAPPOINT ,a waist of money simply.

OMG! you missed the easiest and surest way to spot a fake. The pattern must be perfectly centered and symmetrical. A fake LV or even Coach will have the pattern off center.

Again, if you are going to bother taking the time to make a video, you should learn how to pronounce the items of which you are speaking. It is pronounced "air-mez" not "hermeez". It's that same mistake that you are making time and again that makes your videos seem like cheap fodder. How are we supposed to rely on your information as being true if you can't correctly pronounce a name?

I love how this video is about how to spot a fake designer bag, but the person in the video doesn't know how to pronounce "Hermes" lol. Also, this whole video is pretty pointless. Buy your bag from a designer retailer and you won't have to worry about whether or not it's fake. End of story.
My mother was a mannequin in Paris after the war, during the New Look era, a time when each designer had his/her own distinct “look” as definition. No one was overt with their labels. Hence, I grew up with the axiom, “Never wear labels for any design house, unless they are paying you; you don’t pay them!” Labels are tacky.

I really wish you guys would’ve done a bit of research on the pronunciations of these designer handbag names for example you said Hermes but it’s pronounced ( AIR MES ) it just shows a lack of research on your behalf and is quite disappointing from a consumer standpoint

When you are using any leather article you are promoting inhuman cruelty towards speechless animals . Just to show your higher Status why should these animals be Killed
Nivedita Bhave (1 month ago)
These bags are too costly sometimes women spend so much on it that don't have any money left to keep in these bags .Its always better to buy brands which belong to your own country. Its more economic AS it is free from import duty . It doesnot always mean costly is Quality
ChocFiend (1 month ago)
Its pronounced "Ermez" not "Hermez!" Ugh. 😒

you cannot insure a fake and if your purse is stolen you will not weep the benefits of replacing the handbag from the get go.

Zipper for the originals will be not very smooth. Original has its pace to open the zippers unlike fake ones which will be very smooth almost takes no time to open haha

Both or fake they're pleather
Myha C (1 month ago)
Another way to spot a fake is seeing a knock off you never seen before. You're immediately attracted to it but google the style and color of the bag. I found out my favorite designer never made a bag that looked remotely like that lol
Yanmi (2 months ago)
Having expensive things doesn't make you better person or better than others. If a person who doesn't have too much money wants some of those brands, girl, you need to invest more in loving yourself. A purse or whatever object won't give you happiness. Happiness is in your mind.

I got a Coach crossbody at a thrift store for $35 and it's in amazing quality! Because it's not new, some of these tips won't work, but all the other ones are right! I looked up other Coach crossbodys and I'm 99% sure it's real! Yay!

When it comes to originals,the stitching is PERFECTLY STRAIGHT,and in fake ones the stitching isn't straight,it's going up and down like a mountain

Jill Campbell (3 months ago)
I don’t care if it’s the most authentic designer bag in the world. The money some women pay for these bags is way too much, no matter how much you have available to spend.
tigerstripes (20 days ago)
Hmm i used to think like you until i found out that some bags appreciate in value over time. For example, if i had bought a channel classic bag 2 years ago for 4500, i would be able to sell it today for 6500 😐. Cant do this with no name brands though
ChocFiend (1 month ago)
I would never buy pleather bags or shoes, only real leather. (on sale) You are shopping in the wrong places, but if you can afford a $5000 bag, good for you. Enjoy.
Kendall C Rae (1 month ago)
+ChocFiend yes, cheap pleather bags lol! But also I've had the 150.00 bags pop a stitch or two in less than a few months. Its a preference when it comes to good handbags, I rather spend a few hundred than have to worry about spending 200.00 and the bag just doesn't hold up as well and bust a stitch or two!
ChocFiend (1 month ago)
+Kendall C Rae What kind of bag needs replacing monthly? A plasic bag? 😂 I have leather bags that cost $150 & they look good for years.
Kendall C Rae (1 month ago)
No different than a man with his car collection. Those whom never owned a luxury bag will never understand. I rather buy one good bag that will last a life time than a cheap one I will have to replace every other month which BTW will add up in cost, might as well buy a REAL bag and be done with it.

Why would anyone want an item that child slavery produced?...and yes. ..even the real ones do this.
David Schneider (3 months ago)
Please explain and document child slavery. That implies forcing children to work against their will. I have never seen that and have lived in many 3rd-world countries. If children are working it is because it is work or starve. Which would you choose?
dwaltz123 (3 months ago)
Why not buy a good quality handbag at a lower price and pocket the difference instead of trying to carry a fake higher priced item anyway? Fakes are never as good as the original and almost always break, tear, smell bad etc. Why bother?
Afiq hafidz (1 month ago)
dwaltz123 😊 that sure last 1991 I wasn't even born lol. I hope the lv bucket bag will last her for 2 decades then it will be worth the 2grand I spend on it. All for momma.

Rubbish. There are A grade fakes around & you would have no idea if you saw one.
dwaltz123 (3 months ago)
fancifulfilly----So very true. But not all Americans lack 2nd language knowledge, even if not fluent, they can understand how to pronounce designer labels they wear at the very least. LOL
dwaltz123 (3 months ago)
Afiq hafidz-----Buy the very best handbag you can afford and put the rest of the money you saved, inside it! Coach has the best leather handbags around. They literally will last for years. I have one from 1991 and it still has miles to go. Designer handbags come and go...
Afiq hafidz (3 months ago)
I always tell people who wants to own one. If u cant "afford" dont buy settle for something within ur budget which is also branded but with high quality. My mom has a mango bag which has lasted her for 3 years going at 40 bucks..to break even....well she used it every week so it has probably covered the amount spent. U see i always wanted to buy a chanel for my mom but i dont have a budget for it... i will settle for something within my means n at the end of the day she is happy. Nvr break ur bank for something superficial. Being materialistic once awhile is ok. This world is difficult as it is by working. Slogging whole day after day at work. One deserves to pamper at times. Yea first world problem.

Hermes is not pronounced as you did. It's French, so it doesn't sound the way it looks. Pronounced Air-meh with emphasis on the last syllable.

Could be a robot! "Siri", the robot on my phone, sounds human, but will pronounce everything phonetically, or according to spelling/pronunciation customs. If you tell her to look up a business in "Staunton" , e.g., but pronounce it "Stanton" as it's customarily pronounced, she will look for the business under "Stanton"--and not find it.

Good video however step number 4 is wrong. You showed two pictures of Chanel. One made in France and the other Italy. All and every Chanel item is ONLY MADE IN FRANCE. Coco Chanel had great pride in making her designer labels ONLY at the Atelier de Chanel! Chanel is NOT ITALIAN, its French. This mistake is truly a rookie error. But clients who buy authentic Chanel products are well aware they are only "made in France"!
David Schneider (3 months ago)
"Chanel bags are either made in France or Italy" see https://www.jillsconsignment.com/authentic-chanel-jills-consignment.php and "Originally, Chanel bags are only made in France. It expanded to Italy. And today, we even find Chanel bags made in Spain" https://www.bragmybag.com/are-chanel-bags-from-france-or-italy/

Real Gucci is textured on the handles. ..not smooth. Real Rolex has world famous "smooth second hand sweep". The second hand rolls smoothly without interruption. This is patented and can't be duplicated as far as I know.

Or buy bags that you can afford and not fake a status that doesn't match your bank account 😂😂 Well,even if you afford to buy an original but still walk out of a beat up car ,it will still be taken as a fake .. so make your life simple.. And don't fake being born with a platinum spoon 😉

redfootwalking (2 months ago)
Viva loco, I have always thought that we should not have more purse than money in that purse. Funny part is, lots of people I know with "old money" don't even buy luxury handbags; they're still carrying around some really well worn in handbag from 30+ years ago that doesn't look flashy and looks in great condition. It's the "new money" that flaunts labels, bling, luxury looks and all. Old money looks like a penny pincher, new money buys everything new all the time and lives month to month on good or decent income, but, wants to look wealthy... Old money has money to go to lavish vacations, but, they decide to go low-key on discount fares and not post on social media. New money takes selfies of every step, every move... lol I'm neither old or new money...I have a daughter in Nursing school and another in high school so we broke money. LOL ♥

You missed so much more I used to be the leather Artisian for Louis Vuitton and made the bags. I know the number of stitches that real ones have and do on and so much more this video failed to share. Also there no such thing as serial number on the Louis Vuitton bags . It’s called the stamp code and : or chrono As we called it making the bags
