How to Distinguish Real & Fake Michael Kors

The reason authentic Michael Kors products can cost several thousand dollars Michael Kors Outlet is simple: Its pieces are hand-made from the highest quality materials. Unfortunately, just like other high-end luxury brands Gucci and Prada, Michael Kors items have also fallen victim to counterfeit operations. The illegal selling and purchase of counterfeit luxury goods has become so serious that in 2006, Michael Kors partnered with the New York City government to tighten restrictions. Still, identifying authentic Michael Kors pieces can be tricky without a clear set of distinguishing guidelines.Does this Spark an idea?Other People Are ReadingHow to Identify an Authentic Michael Kors VintageHow to Change a Fake Michael Kors StrapInstructions Leather Goods1Examine the stitching for color, quality and tightness. The thread of real Michael Kors leather goods, such as belts, handbags and luggage is a creamy, golden color, not brown or beige. The thread spacing on an authentic Michael Kors is uniform and perfectly straight, without gaps or loose threads. Counterfeit Michael Kors stitching is uneven, crooked or insecure at the ends.2Feel the exterior and interior of the leather good. Counterfeit manufacturers many use real leather or suede, but the appearance, quality and texture differs. Authentic Michael Kors leather goods are made from only the highest quality natural leather and feels soft, smooth and even. The leather on a fake feels rough, rubbery or bumpy.3Examine the embossed tag. Michael Kors embosses each item, belt and luggage with its company name and manufacturing location, such as Spain, USA, France, Germany or Italy. The embossed stamp of a real Michael Kors is straight, bold and easy to read. The stamp of a fake item is crooked, poorly embossed, difficult to read or made somewhere besides these locations.4Look at the exterior pattern. Real Michael Kors items are symmetrical in every way, including color, pattern and hardware position, making the two sides indistinguishable. On an authentic Michael Kors piece, the first and last shapes of a patterned row are identical. The color of these logos and shapes is a golden hue, not yellow or mustard. A fake Michael Kors item contains unsymmetrical seams or pattern lines, inconsistently colored designs or are colored a stilted version of yellow.5Open and close the zipper. Authentic Michael Kors zippers move securely and easily. A real Michael Kors zipper shouldn't stick or jam and should close the item completely without gaps in the material.6Notice the packaging and tags. Real Michael Kors packaging is luxurious and secure. Dust covers, intricately designed cases for sunglasses and Michael Kors tags throughout and inside the entire piece are standard. Fake Michael Kors items have blank tags, without the name or logo, and are often packaged in cheap plastic or tissue paper.Sunglasses7Examine the lettering on the inside of the sunglasses. Real Michael Kors sunglasses have centered, evenly stamped lettering, logo and signatures. The lettering, signatures and model stamp on fake Michael Kors sunglasses is often high, slanted or becomes faint due to uneven ink toward the end of the line.8Open and close the sunglasses. The real sunglasses should open and close smoothly, without feeling floppy or rickety. Fake Michael Kors sunglasses are made with single attachment screws, feel stiff or flap open easily to indicate poor quality.9Examine the pattern symmetry. On authentic Michael Kors sunglasses, the pattern-engraved metal strip over the lens is perfectly symmetrical, beginning and ending with the same design. Fake Michael Kors sunglasses display only partial shapes, unsymmetrical patterns or start and end with different shapes.Tips & WarningsSome of the expensive counterfeit handbag models are quite convincing. Take the bag to a Michael Kors store or to another luxury accessories store such as Gucci or Christian Dior to ask the salesperson about its authenticity. The sales staff at high-end specialty stores are familiar with signature traits of other authentic luxury pieces and can tell you whether the piece appears real or fake.Don't buy a Michael Kors bag off the street or through an online general merchandise store.
