The Design

Do your research. Though some fakes are pretty impressive, it's tough to replicate every minute detail. If you're not buying directly from the brand, make sure you study snaps of the bag you're seeking, here at dcih we have plenty to help you out, or better still, call into a store and actually see the real deal up close. Then compare with our competitive prices at dcih

The Fabric

When paying big bucks for a designer bag you're definitely paying for the name, but also the craftsmanship. The reason a real Hermès bag costs an arm and a leg is because they're hand made. You won't see shoddy workmanship on a legit bag, so puckered leather and wonky stitching are all signs of a fake. dcih

The Detail

Don't overlook smaller design features. The zips, handles, buckles and other trimmings are often where counterfeiters fail. Hermès bags should have an 'Hermès Paris' stamp for example, while genuine Louis Vuitton leather goods should be printed with 'Louis Vuitton Paris, Made In France'. dcih

THE NOD OF APPROVAL

If you're buying online, always check the authenticity of the website. DCIH for example, has authorisation from designer labels that's explained in the website's terms and conditions. Check your chosen site has that too, here at dcih on ebay we have the power seller stamp on our site which you can only get if you are selling genuine items,you can always contact us at here at dcih or ebay through there free online chat service and also if there's a returns policy. A lack of legal and policy information should sound the alarm bells. dcih

THE EXTRAS

When buying from auction sites like Ebay dcih look for our extras like branded dustbags, boxes (designers love packaging) and most importantly, identity cards. If in doubt after you've unwrapped your bag, you can call the label's customer service line and ask for an authenticity check using the brand's identity card number. If it's a dud, they'll know. dcih
