If you’re looking to purchase a pair of designer jeans on the Internet, here’s a look at some ways you can tell if it is real or fake.
Country of Origin
Almost all designer jeans are made in the United States. Many fake designer jeans will have labels that state that they were made in Asian countries like China, Singapore or India. To spot fake designer jeans on the Internet ask to see the label and read where it says “Made in”.
The Designer Logo and Labels
Fake and counterfeit jean makers are often unable to recreate the exact logos and labels of the designer brands. Take a good look at the logos and labels and look for obvious signs that they are recreated. Signs of recreated labels include fading, differing colors, misspelled words and obvious mistakes on the logo.
Designer brand jeans have a zipper that is authentic to the brand you are purchasing. These zippers will contain the designer brand logo on the zipper. To spot a fake or counterfeit pair of designer jeans ask to see a picture of the zipper and look for the designer logo on them.
Spotting counterfeit designer jeans can be tough but by following these tips you can prevent yourself from purchasing a fake pair.
