Fake Chanel Bags Revealed

Going online and buy Chanel hand bag is not easy. Especially when you are looking for a second hand Chanel bag. How do you want to be sure that you are buying a real Chanel bag? I don’t think you will have any problem paying $20 bucks for a fake one, but you will not be happy when paying $2,000 for a what you thought was real. You will feel like you have been ripped off.

Number 1 tip that I can give you is ‘to know everything about your bags’. If you do, you will know exactly where to look and judge if it real. Chanel is Chanel because their craftsmanship quality is high. They have equipment in production that only Chanel have. Don’t think that Chanel hand bags are easy to copy, if you look at the details you will notice all the difference.

Chanel hand bag quality is 1.000.000 times higher and that’s why you are paying thousands of dollars for one back. Here’s a quick way to notice if the Chanel hand bag is real or fake…

Check the hardware

– CC clasp– Take a look at the CC clasp. Notice how the right passes over the left at the top and then the left passes over the right at the bottom.

– Inside screws – All screws inside Chanel hand bags are printed with two words; Chanel + Paris. They screws should be flat head screws.

– None of these items are bend or tarnish – zippers, studs buckles, clasps and chains,
Double check the quilting

The craftsmanship of the quilting is just not able to be copied. Notice the quilted pattern from your Chanel flap bag to body of the bag when it’s closed, you will notice a consistent pattern.

C’s of Chanel

Most replica hand bags overlook this, but the CC logo is the most important thing on a Chanel bag. The space between the C’s is identical in width of each letter.

Chanel hand bags have different feeling about the leather. There is a different in lambskin and calfskin. Lambskin is what Chanel uses in its classic flap bags.

Lambskin is very soft and less durable, but calfskin is much tougher and durable. Pebbled leather have a unique imprint. If you notice a repeated pattern than it is sure a fake hand bags.

      Hi Zhen, SA actually don’t do authentic service. This was not allowed anymore a few years ago. There are a few free solution however:
      1). get it repaired or refurbish. If the bag is fake, Chanel will reject this request and let you know.
      2). Try consignment stores, they check whether the bag is real before they help you sell it.
