I've been on tPF for awhile and I know we all have our arguments about how the bags "last forever" and how high quality they are, etc... and I agree with all of those, but when it comes to debates of fake vs. real, especially logo bags, doesn't the brand obviously matter? I feel that the name brand does have to be at least a bit important to the person buying it. If all that matters is the style and you can't afford the real brand, wouldn't you just buy a very similar style rather than a blatant knock off? Im sure this will get a few flames, but I have always kind of wondered this. I understand that not every one has the means to spend $1000+ or even $500 on a bag and I wouldn't even try to suggest that to someone who couldn't afford it so that isn't what Im asking. Whether we want to admit it or not, I think that the brand is important, even to a small degree.
