With the advancement of technology and the desire to make more profit today, many manufacturers are attracting the attention of customers by copying designer clothes and accessories. Earlier, replicas of products were easily recognizable, but the current ones are of high quality that it is almost impossible to distinguish them from the original.

Here we offer you tips on how to check certain well-known designer clothes, to be sure of their quality.

They are recognizable by their slightly transparent caramel color. The company logo and name are printed on the sole, and the line between the heel and the sole should be straight and almost invisible.

The printed logo, on the outside of the heel of the shoe, should have a uniform, clear, and strictly upright lines.

The eyelets on the boots are recognizable by the hexagon, which is neatly placed on the outside of the boot, and there are 7 on the male models and 6 on the female models.

Stitches on the boots should be white and those close to each other should be absolutely parallel.

The original silver bracelets have a slightly faded color and should not be too light or shiny like replicas. The use of oxidation techniques for Pandora’s products gives them a unique color.

The new Pandora bracelets are almost non-luminous and perfectly retain their shape, and the weave on them is clearly visible. Pay attention to the size of the clasp which should be almost equal to the size of the charms. The engraving that says “Pandora” is on the front of the clasp, and the crown should be above the “O.”

Inside the clasp, you will find a special fixator whose appearance is in the shape of a clover and consists of a small screw with 4 heads. Its main goal is to securely fasten the bracelet to the wrist. Inside the clasp has a factory seal and a mark indicating the purity of the silver.

Levi’s jeans- $6.50 at Goodwill from ThriftStoreHauls

The denim for the original Levi’s jeans has a visible diagonal pattern that looks the same on both sides (front and back).

The back pockets have a pattern of 2 lines resembling an eagle’s beak.

On the back of the belt above the right pocket, Levi’s jeans have a soft leather part. The patch has a Levi logo and brand where the size of the jeans and the model number is labeled supplemented with a picture of a drover trying to tear the jeans.

The red color is characteristic of Levi’s small tab on the back-right pocket of the jeans, but depending on the model it can be a different color as well. The card bears the brand name and sometimes the registration mark: ®.

“Levi Strauss,” is imprinted on the front of the buttons, and a number is imprinted on the back. On the outside of the rivet is the brand name, and on the inside is the model number.

The Lacoste crocodile is very detailed, with conspicuous eyes, teeth, red jaws, and feet. The body color of the crocodile is light green and the tail is placed parallel to the back.

Inside the shirt on the back of the polo collar, there is a white label with a logo and a red number indicating the size. There should be 2 size numbers on the female models, and the size is marked with one number on the male models.

Other little details that can reveal a fake Lacoste polo

  • The manufacturer uses mother-of-pearl 2-hole buttons without any inscriptions, which is not the case with replica manufacturers using 4-hole buttons.
  • At the bottom of men’s polo shirts there are small cuts approximately 0.4 centimeters deep.
  • Female models do not have any cuts.

The country of origin of this product is Canada and there are 2 dark red stickers on the neck and body of the sweatshirt. On the inner label, there are instructions for washing and care, as well as a recommendation not to iron the product, which often cannot be found on replicas.

If the ties at the ends are not properly tied or are with metal ends it is a sign that they are a fake product.
