How to NOT Buy Fake Coach Handbags

Designer bag advice from the WNBA


From WNBA center Janell Burse:

For those of you who actually want to buy a genuine designer bag but are looking for a bargain, I have some tips on how to tell if the bag is real or not. EBay is a good place to look, but it's obvious that some of the bags are fake. They have bulky stitching and misspelled monograms. I once saw a bag with the signature Coach "C's," but in a Gucci pattern. I referred to this as a Goach purse; Gucci and Coach mixed together! You can also spot a fake bag by looking at the zippers and buckles. Designer bags alway have their logo on every piece of hardware on the bag. Designers seem to pay very close attention to detail and the bootleggers are getting smarter. Fake bags sometimes will have the designer monograms on the zippers, but they're usually crooked or slightly off.

Those are some of the easier ways to spot an imposter purse, but now it's time for a tough one. If someone is trying to sell you a bag that looks authentic yet you're still not sure, ask to see the bag's point of origin. If the tag says "MADE IN TAIWAN," throw it down and run away! Trust me, as fast as you run that bag will tear up even faster. No designer hand bag is ever made in Taiwan.

    Thank you so very much my sista! This information will be used wisely and passed on to my family and friends, because so many times have I been tempted to get that special deal for the real. I can be more careful now. That leather problem is scaring me now though. I thought that leather could be dyed to any color, so I can I tell?

    I think the best thing to do, if you're going to try getting a used bag from someone, is to go to the Coach store (or whatever designer you're into) and examine the bags. Check out the colors, the stitching, the zippers...everything. Make sure the design you're looking at was actually produced by the designer in question. I made the mistake of not checking and ended up with a fake. Also, I guess make sure they'll accept the return if it's not authentic!

    This is actually incorrect...certain Kate Spade lines actually were made in Taiwan (you can go to www.ihatecounterfeitbags.info is a great Kate Spade site). And, I have Coach purses that I purchased from the Coach store at Somerset Mall in Troy, Michigan that do not have the Coach label on every piece of hardware. In fact, the hobo style purse I am carrying right now comes with a key fob attached to the zipper - and neither contain a Coach label. And it is true that seams etc. on label Coaches (the ones with the C's on the outside), leather Coaches lined in C's do not always line up - again proven by my own Coach purse collection. I also have a small Coach handbag that does not contain a serial number or inside insigna...and again this is real, as I purchased it myself. Of course, I am also not trying to sell any of my bags, so I don't really have to prove this to anyone.
    Other than that, this is a very helpful site!

    Knock off handbags are designer handbags which are a part of the export surplus and then are sold for lesser prices. The knock off handbags are often used by people who want to add that touch of luxury in their wardrobe without paying exorbitant rates for them.

    Ancient Greek philosophy was divided into three sciences: physics, ethics, and logic. This division is perfectly suitable to the nature of the thing; and the only improvement that can be made in it is to add the principle on which it is based,Silver Tiffany so that we may both satisfy ourselves of its completeness, and also be able to determine correctly the necessary subdivisions.Tiffany JewelryAll rational knowledge is either material or formal: the former considers some object, the latter is concerned only with the form of the understanding and of the reason itself,Tiffany Bracelets and with the universal laws of thought in general without distinction of its objects. Formal philosophy is called logic.Material philosophy,Tiffany Earrings however, has to do with determinate objects and the laws to which they are subject, is again twofold; for these laws are either laws of nature or of freedom.Tiffany Necklaces The science of the former is physics, that of the latter, ethics; they are also called natural philosophy and moral philosophy respectively.
