Okay we all know that certain brands are copies to death like LV, Coach, Chanel & D & B and are risky to buy on ebay as well as the much coveted spy, paddy, motocycles bags etc. but are the lesser know designers and brand new bags also being copied and sold on ebay too? Like Kooba, Botkier and Bulga, do you think that these bags on sale of ebay are legeit? I wa wonderfin if any brands are safe now as designer bags have gotten so popluar. I would love to be able to purchae some of these designer, but without being able to compare them to the real deal are even these brand safe>

What are your thoughts?

I know that fake Bulgas exist. In most cases they are "inspired copies" -- and do not use the brand name on the bag, so thusly are legal, and of significantly lower quality.

Fossil bags i know.. are not faked.. although their bags.. ARE ripoffs of the real deal. Their "monogram" is FF - very similar and closely styled to Fendi.. but they're not doing anything wrong, it's their name! Fossil! -_-v.

bags will get faked the more popular it gets..

one brand that doesn't get faked (or as often) is Goyard.. so thankfully, those that can buy it should. Goyard doesn't exist in retail stores/locations on the west coast. :sad:

How about new releases like the Dior Gaucho- It must take the fake sellers at least some time to get their hands on one and get it copied right? Isn't there at least a small margin of time when new bags are safe?

no. fake sellers get their stuff out, even before the brand releases them to the stores. like the LV Cerise.. fake sellers had their hands on these and sold them to the public at least 2 weeks in advance. and same for the Manhattan, and a plethora of other styles/lines.

they're very quick.

I saw a fake Gaucho before I saw the real one! :amazed: In Paramus, NJ (land of 10,000 malls) they have 2 kiosks that have fakes. There are Spys, Paddingtons, Quilty Pleasures, Gaucho's, Birkins, Dooney's, ....you get my drift.
