    Default Do you hate it when someone asks you if your bag is real?

    I want some opinions. Does it bother anyone when someone asks you if your bag is real or not?

    Today, I was in the coffee shop and when I went up to the register, I had my Marc Jacobs Alyonna on, she told me she loved my bag. And then two seconds later, she was like, "Is it real?" I was nice and I said yes, but it still annoys me. I guess I can't get mad since there are so many knockoffs for some people it's hard to tell...

    I don't really have this problem. Most people around here wouldn't know an authentic designer bag if it jumped up and bit them in the face. I assume most people think my LV is fake since you don't see too many authentic ones around here. But no one has ever asked me.

    My DH's colleague asked me if my LV was real and I was quite offended but didn't show it. I just said "yes, I don't like carrying fakes" but then I found out his wife carries fake Coaches so I suppose he assumed I was the same. I would get offended if people I know ask me that question cause they should know better, but I won't be offended if a stranger asked me.

    No one has asked me that question yet, but I would be offended if they did.

    If its a close friend, no.
    If its an aquaintance or worse, a complete stranger, I think it's rude.
    I wouldn't ask William Shatner if he was wearing a toupee, so I look at a handbag the same way.
    It doesn't make me angry - I just find it kinda crass.

    I remember when someone asked if my Coach was real. I forget who asked...maybe my cousin? I don't know....and I said "Uh, yeah. I'd never have a fake bag." I carry it proudly when I see someone with a fake Coach.

    I'd be ok if someone asks me... I won't be offended or anything cos it's not really their fault they don't know how to spot a fake from an authentic one

    I guess I was just in one of those moods today lol. It just bothers me that there are even fakes in the first place. We pay so much money to have nice bags when people pay $20 where ever and some people can't even tell the difference. But I guess it is nicer for someone to ask if it's fake then to just assume it is.

    I know, I was annoyed when I asked my girlfriend if her bag was a Marc Jacobs and she grinned and said it's fake and had cost her $20! She was so proud! And I'm standing there with my Choo which cost over $1k that I had to put one of other bags up for sale to get it. I see so many fake Jimmy Choos on the street and on ebay (with sellers claiming they're authentic) that it totally p****d me off.

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

    there have been a few occasions where someone has asked me if my bag is real. and i always say "yeah, of course!!!" i can't really get mad or anything because there are unfortunately a lot of fakes floating around. so i can see how someone who doesn't know a fake from an authentic piece would ask that question. BUT...

    what really pisses me off is when someone is like "oh, well why don't you just get a knock off for really cheap. no one can tell." people have said that to me before and that annoys the heck out of me!!!

    I get annoyed when people ask. I mean, first of all it's none of their business, and second of all it's rude. Sometimes I feel like when I say yes, people don't believe me. I would never ask someone if their bag was real, because if it wasn't I wouldn't want to embarrass them.
