    We really need a good knowledge when it goes to buy wholesale branded merchandise. For people whose business are dealing with Branded apparel, there is a time what you buy ended caught by eBay Vero system where you did not realise that you are selling fakes merchandise. Bad Stitching? Weird Fabrics? Embroidery? Yes they are few of them that you can see with your eyes. However there are some more points that you MUST take a look to make sure you buy original merchandise.

    1. Factory Code:
    Almost all Big Brands they MUST have SMALL factory code inside the inner label. It usually shows date of production or a season they made for. Some Higher brands like an outdoor products North face, On all their jackets they MUST have a hologram attached to their inner label. For street brands like Nike, Express, Gap, Abercrombie, Tommy etc..... They MUST have Small Label show their date of manufacture.

    2. Hantags:
    Type in the barcode into google, make sure the products with you shows up on the internet :)

    3. Bad Stitching, Weird Fabrics, and Cheap Embroidery:
    Yes as I said these 3 FACTS can be seen easily when you see and hold the merchandise.

    Well Hope that helps. Anyone have more knowledges on how to Spot Authentic VS Fakes Merchandise Copy ? share it here..... :)

    Just made this thread into a sticky one! :)

    Hope everyone shares their knowledge in spotting fakes! It's getting harder and harder for one to spot the fake from genuine ones so having a collective source of guides will be of definite help!
