Seems like a replica selling outfit from UK - Probably with an overseas connection (China?) where the stuff ships from.

See "Contact Us" section. Doesn't sound like a designer type retail outlet! :



Also, read this from FAQ for some hints of inauthentic claims. They are not taking responsibility of authenticity themselves but pass it on to their "official dealers and providers"

Q: I was wondering if your products are actually real?

The handbags we provide are with guaranteed quality and authenticity 
by our official dealers and providers of brand designer products.

Hard to find any deals with LV because their goods never goes on sale. the best thing you can do is buddy up with a person who works at LV or a place that sells LV and maybe you can have them get you a discount. Try looking in Bluefly.

I don't know, seeing things that deeply discounted kinda freaks me out. I hate paying full price for shit but there are some things that I would rather just go to the official store to get so I know I'm getting the real thing. Even at $700 if you found out it was a fake you'd be pissed. If it was $100 then I'd say get it from where ever and see what happens. Just my thoughts.

If you were looking for a watch I could help you out, but with hand bags I'm a bit out of my element.

Not happening. There are no deals on LV. They destroy their stuff rather then let it become a sale item.

You're only choices are full price or a nice fake, which will still cost you a few hundred from china.

Michael Kors is the way to go, chicks love his shit. just got my GF a MK bag for about 300, original price was 350.. Bloomingdales holiday sales <3

tory burch is also popular among the ladies, roberto cavalli / Just Cavali ( fucking expesnive) are unique and one of a kind, LV is old man, forget LV, get something unique

Who spends 1800 on a bag...? Mind you there's a thread on here about guys paying huge money for wallets too, thinking that some other guy will ever notice...

Let's be clear, that's a " few hundred " RMB, that is. I wouldn't pay more than $80 usd for a fake in china. I did this once and learned my lesson. $100 fakes are no better than the $20 dollar fakes. Their cost is like two bucks and sell the higher priced ones to the bigger suckers.

Regardless, all china fakes are made out of pig leather. U want fakes from Korea. Now Those are money!

Whatever floats your boat.

I have a family member who loves LV. She buys straight from LV and also from one particular company in China making knockoffs. They tend to be ~$100-300. Shes bought tons of fakes over the years and plenty of expensive shit. Sometimes she'll purchase a fake of a bag she owns to take on vacation in case something happens to it. I've seen shitty cheap fakes and great fakes shes purchased. I've held the real and bs bags next to each other and the fakes are f'en spot on. Come with the lock, key, serial #, certificate of authenticity. Fuck, shes had people at the LV store check out her bags as well as dropped fakes at the store for cleaning.

There is a difference between a shitty fake and a great fake.

JK is right, there are some great fakes out there. You should just get her a nice fake

Actually, I don't know if your sister would like this, but my mom loves her Dooney and Burke purse, it began to fade like 2 years after she bought it and they gave her a brand new one. Just a thought (I obviously know very little about handbags, other than that LV, Coach and Prada are expensive as fuck).

Just my 2 cents.

In Shenzhen, China. They sell from a few hundred RMB (divide by 6.8259 for US$). Excellent quality, I heard the LV store staff in Paris couldn't tell a difference either (they mistakenly put one of their customer's fake LV onto the store shelf).

How would I get one of these great fakes here? Is there a site that sells them?

Gotta search the interwebs. From what I hear from my family member its one site that continually gets shut down but reopens under a different address with the exact html just transferred over.
