How To Look For A Fake Chloe Bag
Chloe is a popular handbag label. They remain a leading fashion designer who pumps out high quality handbags consistently. And unlike other brands like Coach and Dooney & Bourke, Chloe has not started outsourcing their production to China. Chloe continues to produce most of their handbags in Italy. And because they remain a high-end label, there are obviously many counterfeit Chloe bags on the market. But with a few simple tips, a shopper can avoid many of the fake Chloe bags that saturate the viral marketplace.
An important note to remember is that Chloe does not wholesale, or sell factory seconds. Beware of any seller who claims that the low price is due to a wholesale program etc. Most authentic discount Chloe bags online will generally be pre-owned handbags.
Because counterfeiters will use cheaper materials in their handbags, metal accents and hardware are great places to look for authenticity points. Cheaper metals are generally lighter than the higher quality brass that Chloe utilizes. And a fake Chloe Paddington bag generally shows hardware that is lighter compared to an authentic bag. The padlock on an authentic Chloe Paddy should e.g.
Roads around a pound. In many cases, the fake Chloe bags will have a padlock that weighs less. But in case a fake handbag has the correct weight, (so that hardware is excluded based on weight alone), there will be other clues to look for. A strong hint in this situation relates to quality and detail. Quality and detail are two points that are universal for all top designer handbags.
One of those quality details to look for in a fake piece of Chloe hardware is the color. An authentic Chloe handbag uses the so-called aged brass (matte finish). Therefore, many fake handbags will often show a shiny gold as superficial plating. This is generally a sign that a cheaper metal is used instead of the higher quality in brass. Therefore, always check the weight of the machine and the appearance and quality of the color of the hardware.
Another area that works with hardware is leather. Authentic Chloe leather, which is generally calfskin, is extremely textured and soft. In comparison, fake clothes will be stiff and the textures look less natural.
This means that when the authentic, soft leather is combined with the hard hardware, the Chloe handbag must collapse when it sits on its own. On Paddington bags, the padlock acts as an anchor and pulls the bag down. However, fake Chloe bags will tend to stand on their own due to the lightweight hardware and the stiff leather.
