    Cool Re: Do you hate it when someone asks you if your bag is real?

    Here's an idea for the next time a woman approaches you with that question:

    Woman: "Wow. Nice bag. Is it real?"

    You: "Thank you. Yes. Are your boobs real?"

    I don't care. No one has ever asked me, though. My friends and family know I spend some $$ on bags, so they know the truth. I live in a big city and I find that strangers don't usually come up and talk to you all that much...

    I would probably give someone a dirty look, roll my eyes, and not even answer them if they asked me.

    I think it bothers me some because as I had talked about before. All these fakes around 90% of the people have seen a fake for so long they think the "real" is fake. This is why I get so angry over the fakes because once you've saved your hard earned money to get the real thing and around every corner is a replica, and most people think "YOU" are the one with the fake...it makes me a little aggravated! Just remember though, there's those few people out there that know quality, and they will be able to tell the difference!!

    Living in NYC there are a ton of fakes. Chinatown is fake heaven. So I've never been asked because they probably assume it is a fake.

    ITA, too. I think this is much worse with LV and Coach bags. There are sooooo many fakes out there, it is assumed the bag is a fake unless you're a celebrity. All it takes is a trip to the mall--fakes galore! That's frustrating because you're walking around, loving your bag :wiggle: and instead of it being admired, it is grouped with "the others."

    yes, gizmo, this is true! I live around loads of malls and they are flooded with fake bags, heck, I even went to a spring fling at the school a few months ago. It was to raise money for the school and there were serveral booths open with people selling different items. I just so happened to have carried my coach tote....and guess what's in the next booth??? YES....a million FAKE coach bags for 30 bucks each. Now we're talking about a gym full of women who wouldn't know what Coach was if it bitt them in the butt.....all they know is the "rich" people carry them so they want one. I walk by, eyes big in amazement.....and low and behold one of the ladies says......LOOK...she's already got one....and turns back to the attendent and says....we want one like that.....LOL.....Honestly...I just rolled my eyes...shook my head, and kept on truckin! I know that's mean.....but this whole replica bag thing really gets me! I spend 500, you spend 30, and we BOTH look fashionable! Boy do they have it all wrong!

    I hear you, angieadms. It stinks. I've never had a thing for LV, precisely because I saw so many of them when they became the "it" bags, and many were fake. And I used to like Coach, but I'm so disgusted with the fakes I've totally lost interest in the real thing. Now I just have my black leather Legacy Tote from 7 years ago (which was never replicated, as far as I know). This was before the signature bags showed up and took over. It's a shame.

    I so agree, I dont ask and dont want to me asked =)

    I think I'd probably start laughing if anyone asked me that!

    But that's just me...

    but the thing is knock offs fall apart after awhile and they have to get rid of their cheap bag, when you pay more you get more than just being fashionable for a season. But then agian if thats all someone can afford and they are happy with it then I guess so be it. Its just a shame they dont know where the knock off comes from.


    One time I had a guy compliment a dooney bag of mine...and then turn around and tell a friend of mine (hes a coworker of my friend) that my bag was a fake! I was livid! Who they heck buys fake dooney they arent that expensive!!!!!

    I had been asked a couple of times if my bags are real!
    This when I turn around and leave them where they were!

    The most embarassing question was (pointing a my Mirror LV bag): Did you steal that from Paris or is it a fake?

    You can imagine that it became quiet noisy in the street

    So if you have sensitive ears better don't ask me these questions

    I can think of worse things to be asked. Someone could ask you if you're pregnant and you're not. Now that is rude!

    This is rude but also a kind of compliment whereas the "fake" question is only rude!
