    Default Has Anyone Spotted Someone Toting a Replica Bag While In A LV, Chanel, etc. Boutique?

    My reason for asking this is because I was at the LV boutique Thursday and saw a woman with a very bad replica LV Monogram Speedy 30. Almost everyone in the boutique turned their heads towards her, and the SA was trying to stifle her laughter. I thought that what she did was probably one of the worst mistakes she could've possibly done.

    Right before she left though, I could tell she felt a bit uncomfortable because the SA was keeping a close eye on her and because everyone was whispering about the replica on her arm.

    I wouldn't really know. I can't tell the difference between a real or fake anything, so I remain in the oblivious section.
    If it's totally hideous or off kilter, that is a whole nother thing....

    I have a soft-spot for people who unknowingly get stuck with a fake. I mean sometimes it's really easy to tell if it's a fake, but when you start getting into limited editions, vintage collaboration lines, or The French Company x Louis Vuitton handbags, I'm in the dark. Or what if it was her first LV bag and she was taking it in there to compare or something. Maybe?

    Well if she knowingly walked into a store with a replica bag...that was pretty stupid.

    But if she did not know that what she had was a fake, i do feel bad for her. It must have been humiliating.

    As for SA'a trying to stifle their laughter, i HATE sales associates who put on an air of superiority. It is not like they can afford to buy the bags there on a regular basis with their salary. Never judge a book by its cover...a person walking into the store might be poorly dressed but making more money in a week than the SA would in a whole month.

    Fedup,
    I always make it a point of going shopping looking less than. If I get attitude, I thoroughly enjoy going to another sales associate (whoever is nice to me from the start) and plunking down my money with her/him. In every store I frequent I have a certain sales person who knows they will make money off of me. There are others that know they better not come near me.

    I've never spotted anyone carrying a replica while in LV or Chanel. IMO, if they carry a FAKE into the boutique, especially an obvious fake, they should expect to get all sorts of stares and whispers.

    What would make someone carry a fake into a boutique? Perhaps they were unaware it was a fake? Odd.. but then again most ppl are.. :)

    What if she didn't know

    If she bought it off the street, then obviously. But if she got scammed off ebay, maybe it's her first LV purse, or something. We just don't know is the thing.

    My guess is she probably didn't know.. I don't think anyone would knowingly carry a fake into the store! The poor girl..

    The reason why I know it was a fake is because the LV's were black and were a bit too small. I don't know if she knew or not but yeah, she might've been in there for comparison. I really felt for her.

    I witnessed a similar experience. Las Vegas, Belagios Hotel, Chanel boutique; a lady was carrying a fake Louis Vuitton Multicolore Speedy 30, it was a semi-obvious one. Sales Associates were working as usual, no suspicion on her handbag, they must have just assumed that it was "authentic". That day, I was sporting my Authentic Multicolore Speedy, the good-eyed boyfriend caught on to the situation and pointed out the "fake".

    Sadly, I've never been into a LV or a Chanel boutique...but I still could! Will keep a sharp eye out (though not sure what I'd be looking for!) What are the giveaway signs of fakes?

    I wouldn't consider myself an expert, but I usually notice the dead giveaways like the leather, alignment of the LV's, and just over all look of the bag, like if the straps are too long for that particular style, or a if it's a style that LV never came out with, like the Neverfull in mulitcolore, or something.

    I'm not an expert...but I DO notice people with fakes. It's usually a fake made up Chanel that I don't think EVER existed, a fake LV that has gross looking "leather", or a fake Coach. Sometimes I wonder if people know they're carrying fakes. But around where I live, we don't have stores that would sell Chanel or LV. I'm sure people know they're fake because of how cheap they look though.

    My bf always spots them too if I don't. He'll just say "Isn't that a fake?", then laugh.
