February 21, 2021

It such a big decision when you decided to buy branded designer handbag. But, the most important thing is, you need to make sure that you will not buy the fake one.

.

So, we would like to share on how to detect fake points on Micheal Kors bag by paying attention to the details in the stitching and metal.

1. Examine the tag

i. High quality layered tag is located in the right side of the bag. The bottom layer is grey while the top layer is white. There should be text printed on them.

.

ii. The white tag usually will have 12 digit code. Verify this code through Google search and make sure to confirms that same design appeared (sometimes result will include different colors of same design).

.

iii. Check the 4 digit code on the grey tag. That number is the indicator of which year the bag was made. It also will have manufacturing information.

.

Note: Micheal Kors have factories in China/Taiwan; Made in China does not automatically mean the bag is fake.

.

2. Observe quality of the materials

i. Check the seams and stitching all over the corners and creases. Make sure the stitching is pristine and even.

.

ii. The zippers should be in place with the overlapping stitches. If the stitching is not consistent, then it’s counterfeit.

.

iii. Try to touch and smell the material. Bags that made with real leather will have earthy and rich smell. It should not have a smell like plastic and must have smooth finish.

.

iv. Look around the high quality stitching along the handles of the bag. Check whether the strap on the side of the bag is securely sewn onto the bed. Also check for straight, vertical lines of stitching that attach the strap to the bag. Also check the 4 stitches beneath the buckle.

.

v. Check the the fabric lining. The material of the lining should feel soft and silky when you gently stroke the fabric lining. The lining will have inner pockets attached, which are attached with triangular stitching along the corner of the seams.

.

Note: Micheal Koras bag have a specific design on the inside of the bag where the MK logo is encircled and repeated across fabric. Both logo and circle must be stitched with same color.

.

3. Examine metal hardware

i. Check the metal hardware is polished or not. The Micheal Kors is always made with crisp, unmistakable edges in the metal hardware.

.

ii. Hold the metal hardware in your hand. Weight it with your hand to see how heavy the metal is. it should feel heavier if it’s real bag.

.

iii. Check whether the engravings on the metal are polished and consistent. Micheal Kors text should centered beneath the MK of the logo. Also check the letters on the zipper pulls are even in size and shape.
