Brand Name

All main brands such as Armani Gucci, Calvin Cline all carry a brand name or logo. If you have some favorite brand then you are more likely to purchase simply for the name itself. what ever brand you choose , study it, get a little background info on the product. Find out certain things that will distinguish it from less quality products. this could be something as simple as stitching's and fabric. All major brands will have their own unique way for creating and recognizing their products. Take a major brand such as Nike with a name and logo that has weathered the test of time, and still is considered a major brand today. The Tick logo is known throughout the world, and is unique to Nike. so get to know your label or brand and what make it differ from the rest.

Checking Material

Another way of finding out if it's fake to to carefully check any signs of loose stitching's, faulty clips or straps. Anything that may give away it's flaws will give you a (for sure) sign. This can mean that it wasn't made by the authentic seller. Check any objects such as the rings that secure the straps to the handbag, is it quality metal with a genuine coating of fine gold? . Well the gold stuff may put a hole in ya pocket, But you can still find a less costly wallet or handbag, and quality to match.
