How To Tell A Celine Knockoff Bag By Looking At Just One Photo

Categories:Other Brands

I took a look at the Celine bags sold on eBay right now and I have to say I’ve come across a huge number of replicas! I don’t want to discourage you, I just want to make it easier for you to spot them.

Celine Knockoff Bag Sold on eBay – Signs

The most upsetting thing about this is that some of the Celine replica bags sold here look worse than your regular Celine bag replica but they’re 2 or 3 times more expensive. Paying $800 or less for a Celine bag may sound like an exciting thought, but don’t be quick to buy it if you want don’t to realize it was actually a Celine knockoff bag when it’s already too late.

I tried to make my how to tell if Celine bag is authentic guides as detailed as I could. But I know that some of you still feel insecure even after checking the guides. But in that case the price should get you thinking. It’s unlikely for a real Celine bag to be sold for less than $1,000 even if it’s used. The only exception is if the bag is very old or heavily used. So the price should be a telltale sign as well.

You should also take advantage of the fact that there are plenty of photos of Celine bags online given their popularity. Look for that specific model you’re interested in and see if you can find a photo on any site. If you can find only photos of replica bags online, then chances are that specific bag never existed in authentic version. Here’s an example:

Most importantly, if you don’t want to buy a Celine knockoff bag, make sure you check all the details I told you about. I thought it would be interesting to show you that some replica Celine bags can actually be spotted as faked by looking and just one photo. Disclaimer: all the photos you’ll find in this post were taken from eBay. So you can only imagine just how many Celine knockoff bags are there! I know, it’s scary!

And do you know what is the saddest part about this? Most of these sellers have 100% positive feedback. This means that the feedback is either fake or that the people they’ve previously tricked weren’t able to tell they bought a Celine knockoff bag.

If all replica bags online were advertised as such, everything would be so much easier. But unfortunately it doesn’t work that way, so you either learn to protect yourself or expose yourself to scammers. So here are some of the most common flaws a Celine knockoff bag will have. This should make it easier for you to tell fakes when you see them.

Sometimes it’s the logo, other times it’s the lining, the shape of the handle holders or even the base studs. And other times it’s all these combined if it’s a really bad replica. Just don’t get carried away by the fact that one of these is how it should, check the rest too. For example, a replica Celine bag can have a perfect logo stamp but maybe the bottom studs are crooked. You get the point.

Simple rule about the lining: a Celine Mini Luggage bag in smooth leather will always have smooth leather lining. For me it was enough to look at the photo above to tell it was a Celine knockoff bag. But then you can also notice that the stamp is smudgy or that the zipper pull is too wide and rounded. This bag is being sold for $850.00.

Now look at this other Celine knockoff bag. Just because it has a tag, it doesn’t mean it’s authentic. On the contrary, just by looking at this picture you can see that the front stamp is wrong and that the front pocket stitching is too rounded. The bottom edges of the pocket stitching should be just a bit curved, not this rounded. This is being sold for $799.00.

Replica Celine Phantom Bag eBay Scam

I honestly couldn’t believe this one: this fake Celine Phantom bag is being sold for no less than $1,699! Can you believe that? This has to be one of the worst fake Celine bags I’ve ever seen on eBay! This Celine knockoff bag should cost like $100 tops and someone actually has the nerve to ask this kind of money for it! I’m in shock. If you’re still wondering what is wrong with this bag, the answer is everything. Oh my god, these people are just the worst.

And here’s yet another Celine Phantom knockoff. This one is being sold for $960.00:

I have to admit that it’s not always easy for me to spot a Celine bag replica either. And this is because some of them are really well-made. But there’s usually something that gives a Celine knockoff bag away and the only way to spot that something is to see many detailed pictures of the bag. And here is a good example:

Fake Celine Phantom – Serial Number Format Is Wrong

This Celine Phantom looks really good. At first sight it’s really hard to believe this is actually a Celine knockoff bag. But then look at the serial number. This is not the correct Celine bag serial number format. It should be like this: one letter-two letters-four numbers. A tricky one!

Now here are other telltale signs of fake Celine bags found on eBay. You can find the explanation in the photo caption:

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Base Studs

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Studs Are Crooked

Fake Celine Micro Luggage eBay

Fake Celine Micro Luggage – Shape of the Handle Holders and Stitching

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Front Logo

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Stamp Is Blurry and Sloppy

As I’ve said before, if you feel like a seller is reluctant to send more photos, stay away. Sellers have different types of excuses to explain why they don’t have the receipt, the original tags or the box. While this may actually be true for some of them, you need to know scammers use these frequently as well.

I have to say these were just a few examples to prove my point. You can find them all on eBay if you want to take a better look. Again, it’s appalling to see just how many replicas are being sold on sites that are supposed to sell authentic bags but there’s not much you can do about it.

If you thought about buying any of these replica Celine bags, beware! If you need more info, let me know!

How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag: It’s Not As Easy As You May Think!

Categories:Other Brands

You can already find a guide on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag here on the blog. But sometimes spotting aGivenchy Antigona replica is really not easy because some of them look great!

How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag - Authentication Guide

And what makes things even more complicated is that authentic designer bags sometimes have flaws too, which can make one extremely confused.

Authentic Givenchy Antigona Bag Crooked Logo

I recently got an email from someone who had found my blog through my post on How to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag and who asked me to authenticate her bag. I have to admit this was the most difficult to authenticate Givenchy Antigona I have ever seen!

Almost everything in the previous post on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag guide checked and it was really difficult for me to believe a Givenchy Antigona replica could be THAT good. But at the same time I just couldn’t believe that a real Antigona could have a crooked logo like that!

Givenchy Antigona Flaw - Letters Are Not Straight

After all, what’s the point of spending that much money on the real deal if it comes with flaws? I mean, it’s much easier to understand that fake bags can have some flaws but it’s much more difficult to accept it when you’ve spent thousands of dollars on the real thing.

This is the Givenchy faux leather case all over again. I don’t know if you all remember, but at some point the brand released the Givenchy faux leather Antigona bag and many people were appalled by the same reasons I was. First because the Antigona is an iconic style of the brand and second because the price was over $2k. Can you believe that?

While it’s great for vegan high end bag lovers to have options as well, the real problem is not with the material but with the pricing. And the truth is that no matter if it’s made of full leather or faux leather, the price is decided by the power of the brand, not by the material it’s made from. And when a designer bag is overpriced and flawed, I think you have all the right to get upset.

How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag – What To Check

So if a few years ago any how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag guide would have mentioned to check to see if the bag is made of real leather or not, it’s not the case anymore. This means there are other details you need to check now if you want to learn how to tell a fake Givenchy bag.

Checking the metal logo is one of the most important steps in any guide on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag. But what do you say when everything looks good except this particular detail? My friend had her bag authenticated not just by me but by other experts as well. She told me that one of them told her “the fakes are good, but I don’t think they’re this good”. And I agree! But at the same time it’s just not acceptable for a real Givenchy Antigona bag to have a logo that looks like this! It is seriously crooked, as you can see from the pictures.

I also noticed that the interior leather tag is too faintly embossed. Honestly, I’ve seen Givenchy replica Antigona bags with better stamps than that!

There is also a thread on the PurseForum about this. More Givenchy owners have complained that the Givenchy letters on their Antigona bags are not straight.

The bag is authentic, no doubt about that. But this doesn’t mean that my friend is feeling any better about her bag. And who could blame her, really? If someone told me they wanted to buy a replica Givenchy Antigona with a logo like this, I would advise against. So just like my friend said, I guess the Givenchy quality control is not that great.

Now look at this other Givenchy Antigona Medium gold hardware that is being sold on eBay right now. Do you think this is real? No, it definitely isn’t, so beware!

Besides the metal logo and the interior tag, don’t forget what I already mentioned in my previous post on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag: check the base pads! The stitching should be on the leather patches and they should have the same size. For example, look at this Givenchy Antigona replica from Uncle Bench. Looks great, right?

But then when you look at the bottom you’ll easily notice the two base pads are unequal – the one on the left is wider than the one on the right. But which flaw could you rather overlook: a crooked logo or unequal base pads?

Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini

I’ve also noticed that people are more into these two Antigona sizes because the Medium is too large for many women. So if you also need a Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini comparison here is what you should know.

Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini Size Comparison

Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini Differences

Here are the main differences between the Givenchy Small Antigona bag and the Givenchy Small Antigona bag:

• First of all the dimensions, of course. Different sites show different dimensions for the Small Antigona. But the dimensions are 9.5″ height x 11.0″ width x 7.0″ depth (approximately) with 4.0″ handle drop, 9.5″ strap drop (approximately) or W28 x H23x D17cm with 62cm long strap.
• Even though there are not many style and design differences between the two, the most important difference is that the Givenchy Antigona Mini has adjustable shoulder strap and it can be worn cross-body, while the Small Antigona has shorter strap, like the Medium and cannot be worn across the body.
• The size differences between the Small and the Mini is quite substantial. For you reference, the Givenchy Antigona Mini is to the Antigona Medium what the Celine Nano Luggage is to the Mini Luggage.

There are no other notable features differences except for the strap, so the information on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag applies to all sizes.

How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag – It’s Not Always This Easy!

The thing you need to understand when learning how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag is that not all fakes are as easy to spot as these one below:

And I’m not saying this like it’s a bad thing! But at the same time I know that for some of you it’s very important to own authentic designer bags, so I’m trying to help all bag lovers.

How To Tell A Fake Goyard And How To Choose A Great Goyard St Louis Tote Replica

Categories:Other Brands

New week, new guide! This time I’m going to try to show you girls how to tell a fake Goyard from a real one. The fake Goyard St Louis tote has reached a stellar popularity in the past two years and I’ve realized that based on how many of you are trying to find the best Goyard replica.

How To Tell A Fake Goyard St Louis Tote

So either if you are here to learn how to tell a fake Goyard or you are looking for a great Goyard St Louis tote replica, you’ve come to the right place.

The Goyard Saint Louis tote is by far the most popular Goyard bag and it comes in two sizes: PM and GM. For those who are still wondering why this bag is so popular, I think these are its strongest points: it is versatile, lightweight and extremely functional. You can use the Goyard fake St Louis tote as an everyday bag, as a shopping bag, as a traveling bag, as a diaper bag or even as a beach bag.

How To Tell A Fake Goyard – Check The Canvas

Trust me on this, learning how to tell a fake Goyard has become more difficult now than it was before because of a big change Goyard made in 2006. They stopped hand-painting every single dot on their bags and starting using stencils instead to keep up with the large customer demand. Of course, many Goyard customers were not pleased with this at all. And who can blame them? When you buy an authentic Goyard, you expect excellence.

Real Goyard Canvas Texture

Authentic Goyard Canvas Texture Detail

If you look at an older authentic Goyard tote, you will notice that it is quite different from the modern St Louis totes. The Chevron print used to be messy and imperfect and that was actually a good thing because it gave Goyard pieces more character and made them unique. Back then, the easiest way to know how to tell a fake Goyard was to check to see if the pattern was “too perfect”. Obviously, replica manufacturers didn’t hand paint their fake Goyard totes, so the differences between Goyard bags replica and the authentic were easily noticeable.

Goyard fans are still complaining about the print being too perfect, which makes all the Goyard St Louis totes look too much alike. But the real problem was that they also started charging more for their bags even if they stopped hand-painting them, so it was only natural for this question to pop out: are they still worth it?

This huge change was impossible to avoid given the fact that the bag has become so mainstream and there were so many orders coming their way. Using stencils instead was therefore the faster way to make their bags. But the fact that they also increased the prices can be considered just a consequence of their greediness, I’m sorry to say this.

So if you ask me, the best thing you can do is to buy a great fake Goyard tote instead of spending that much money on an authentic Goyard tote. The most important things you should check about the canvas is that:

1. It has a bumpy texture, as if it were actually hand-painted. If you can’t feel the raised bumps, the bag is definitely a replica. It’s not true that all replica Goyard bags have a smooth surface because they have the pattern printed on the material! If you are buying the bag online, it’s essential to see a close-up photo of the canvas. If the seller is not willing to provide one, don’t buy it!
2. It is not extremely shiny and it doesn’t have a plastic-y look and feel as if it were made from cheap vinyl and cheap cotton.

Check The Stamp!

If you really want to learn how to tell a fake Goyard, you should also check the embossed stamp. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a replica Goyard St Louis tote with a perfect stamp, even when the canvas looked great! This is mostly useful to those who are trying to authenticate their Goyard. To make it easier for you, here are two real vs fake comparison photos of the inside stamps:

You’ll notice that for most fake Goyard bags they either don’t use the right font, the letters are too close together or they are too deeply embossed into the leather.

How To Tell A Fake Goyard – Other Signs

Real Goyard St Louis totes are known for being extremely lightweight due to the materials they are made from: resin-coated canvas for the exterior and cotton/linen fabric for the interior. So checking the weight of the bag could also make your authentication process easier. Sure, this is possible only if you already have the bag in person. If the bag is on the heavy side, then it’s probably a fake Goyard.

Stitching

Also very important if you want to learn how to tell a fake Goyard: black Goyard bags feature black stitching while all the other colors have white stitching. Talking about the stitching, check to see if there is a white stitch in the middle at the end of the handle tabs. Of course, if the stitching is sloppy and messy, that’s a dead giveaway.

Serial Number

The Goyard St Louis tote comes with a detachable pouch which is essential for this how to tell a fake Goyard guide. You should be able to find the serial number on the interior of the pouch for older St. Louis totes. For the newer styles, the serial number should be on the end of the leather strap that attaches the pouch to the bag. The numbers are small and discreetly embossed.

Hardware

The hardware is minimal on Goyard bags and wallets but every detail is important if you want to learn how to tell a fake Goyard. The logo is engraved on the snap button of the pouch and the words “Goyard” and “Paris” should be on the interior of the metallic snap button.

If you’re looking for a Goyard St Louis tote replica or a Goyard replica wallet, don’t expect it to be 100% perfect. Just think about how much money you are saving! As long as the canvas looks good, the stitching is neat and sturdy and the leather trims are actually made of real leather, the rest of the details matter only you are trying to prove someone else the bag is actually real. But all the others details are very important if you want to learn how to tell a fake Goyard in order to authenticate your bag or choose the best Goyard replica.
