Discuss anything replica/fakes, legit checking, quality checking, etc
Try to keep your saltiness about clothes to a minimum.
Right now China is celebrating Chinese New Year (like Xmas) so there are lots of delays and businesses taking breaks. I suggest waiting till March to order.

>Wearing fakes doesn't make any sense.
>I like the way this looks but I would rather have a nearly identical, lower quality garment at a lower cost
seems fairly simple to me
This one has the updated engraved yohji. It's also available on the reddit rep sites.
the ones i've seen have hard soles like on the adidas tubular. it should be rubber like on tires. also the old black and white version probably has tons of reps because the old one didn't have embossed lettering. just make sure the sole is a plastic piece and the spacing on the elastics are right
reminder that these are fakes not replicas
reminder that anybody that gives a shit about you wearing brand x will know that you're wearing fake brand x
reminder that fakes will never reach the same quality of the legit item
reminder that the fake lacks all of the details that make the item look good anyway
reminder that fakes only fill the superficial and stupid reasons for owning an item (brand recognition for a second before they realize fake)
reminder that fakes will never fill u up on the inside like copping ur grail for real
I guess you could shop at Zara. That's basically the same shit as fake clothes imo worse because they fuck with the design. Same cheap quality.
Designer stuff and branding are pretty specific. It's like thinking Obey box logo is the same as supreme box logo. Two very similar things but one brand has reputation and a name behind it. Same with Ralph Lauren and U.S. Polo Assn. Both have a logo of this guy on a horse but the two are very different.
As far as just buying a uniqlo ocbd to ralph ocbd instead of the rep ralph ocbd, you have to look at why people would buy the ralph ocbd in the first place to understand why people would buy the rep.
tl;dr people like the design/brand but are poor and would rather have it over the blank/poor brand
I live in a small city in a small state where I probably own the only pair of Geobaskets within 100 miles. People give me compliments on them constantly and tell me they've seen famous people wearing them.
they're fake. So is basically everything I wear. I've even posted fits here and nobody could tell. I've spent less than $700 on my entire wardrobe, had I bought the real things it would probably be 10k++. Unless you live in NYC or LA no one is going to call you out on your shit.
>tfw the fuccbois that still live with their parents spending all their min wage money on clothes think they can call other people poor
no im spending my parent's money xD
I will never undstand why people will pay retail or even resell or EVEN REPS TO LOOK LIKE THIS.
>being a nigger who wears clothes with obvious logos
You can't fake quality, and if you could you'd make more money just putting your own name on it and selling it for what it's actually worth
>implying I'd ever wear supreme or bape or whatever you children are wearing
You poorfags are peasants trying to be kings. Walking around with your replica ass swords trying to pass them off as real, worrying all day every day that nobody around you notices. Bitch ass slave ass fuckers wearing genuine leather. Poor ass faggots wearing replica noble's robes that are made of wool instead of silk. Don't try to justify this shit.
In social psychology, there's an idea called "effort justification."
This idea basically states that we don't suffer for what we love, rather we love what we suffer for. This is the idea that makes the fashion community attack fakes with such anger. The fashion community itself isn't necessarily wealthy, rather it's middle class/upper middle class and generally people have a hard time paying for the items they buy.
It's the effort that makes them special.
The design is secondary. That's what leads the fashion community to wearing completely stupid shit like Raf Simons sneakers.
Also a lot of the designer goods are much less quality than people seem to say. As someone who has spent money on this, besides the mother of pearl buttons, I genuinely cannot tell that much of a difference in quality between a Band of Outsiders shirt and a Uniqlo or Gap shirt to justify it costing 8x as much.
Spend the money paying off your student loans.
The fakes are shit quality and don't look particularly good
I mean I'm not attacking anyone here for buying fakes but I just can't make myself to buy fakes because they look like fucking shit from the pictures I've seen people wearing them.
But then I also buy fashion I can afford so I don't have hard time buying shit I want.
I probably wouldn't buy fakes unless I was a troll, though.
Honestly most people wont tell the difference but those who do will be so angry. Actually -- you should wear fakes. Tell those uptight nerds indoctrinated into a capitalist system of consumerist superiorism to fuck off with your shoes.
There's good fakes and bad fakes. Everyone knows this.
No one in fashion community discusses "good fakes" because they're a taboo. The economy sacrifice is what leads you to the "I'm superior for owning this" mindset.
I still don't believe a "good fake" will be on the quality of actual designer item. If you buy a fake supreme then do, those hoodies are fucking terrible to begin with or some collab adidas shoe won't be amazing quality to begin with so the difference to fakes won't be that big.
But show me a fake that is on par with designer item as far as quality goes and actually looks the same.
what are you even trying?
why do you defend fakes, stop trying to push them onto people
i laugh at everyone of you who knowingly buys fakes and so does the majority of grown ups who are into fashion, stop trying to justify this shit.
wear fakes if you want youll still be a joke to me making 1000 threads doesnt change shit.
I bought some timberland lug boat shoes off aliexpress and compared them with my dads pair in a different colour way. Almost identical but slightly less padded on the insole. Even has the exact same writing on the inside and nice quality leather,came with the box and leather laces etc. cost 1/4 of the price .
How often do things come back on unionhouse? I was going to buy this bag but it's now unavailable. Is there any other fake alternative?
your logic is like /fa/ is trying to push dick ovens onto everyone by discussing it. seriously hide the thread if you get so buttmad. maybe if you had any friends or dated women, you would know fakes are everywhere.
I wish people could talk about this shit without getting defensive. Let me throw something out there just for consideration, and I'll optimistically hope I get a non-rude response: Let's try to tackle the bigger picture here. We all see clothes we like that we can't afford. When this happens to me (let's say it's a Berluti blazer or something) my response is to find something that has the same elements that I like about it (the color, the type of cut, etc) or to have something custom made that is a more personal take on the same idea (might as well have something unique) with my own details added to it. Aren't these better responses than to say "I need something exactly the same, with the word SUPREME in a big red box on it and everything"?
Admittedly I never understood wanting to wear someone else's brand on your clothes in the first place but there are always options other than "I need that exact white sneaker". There are other good white sneakers. Etc.
Am I the only one that don't like clothes where the brand is visible except for a few exceptions? I just like the design of some brands and don't have the money to buy it. Fakes give you the design with less quality but at least it's affordable.
Any links for card holders?
I want this one but shipping is $20 to my country
Posted in the last thread regarding how sketchy buying reps is because I've never done so, now I'm just asking for opinion.
I'm leaning heavily toward all black, what do you guys think?
how legit is http://picksky.ru/ ? I see dudes on ig post reps they cop from picksky but idk if they're in on the scam
Anyone purchased these? I want to sew them on random inane shit
Gonna buy later today
I've bought 3 times from yoybuy so far. Service is fast like within a day they order my stuff. They ship out fast after you mark the packages to be sent from their warehouse. Their site has useful price calculators. Only downside is their English is not their native tongue but you can understand it. The only thing you might encounter is not a fault of them but their chinese postal service. After they ship and you get a tracking number it takes around 5 days for it to show up in the system. (EMS/e-express)
cop or nah
