How many of you have actually seen fake birkins? How often do you see them? I saw two in New York. They were both black bags with silver hardware. And up close it was pretty obvious that it was a very bad fake. But the women were carrying them with a defiant glare as though the bags were real. I think they caught me eyeing their bags with a puzzled look. And then I saw a fake birkin about three weeks ago in Richmond, VA. It was a pink "birkin", baby pink to be exact. The woman and I both entered Banana Republic at the same time. The bag was clearly uneven and the color had worn off in many spots. The bag just looked terrible. But the SA in BR apparently though HER bag was real because she was fawning all over it and gave my birkin only a cursory, disdainful glance. I could only chuckle inwardly.
