How can you determine if a designer purse is real?

I am afraid I have a fake purse.

If you purchased your handbag at a department store or a retail store, you can be sure it's real. If you got it really cheap, it's not well made or the metal decorations are tarnishing, you have a knock-off.

Most authentic designer purses come with a card in an inside pocket, with the company's name and a phone number that you can call should your purse need repairs. This is standard at places like Prada and Dooney & Burke, and if your purse does not have one of these cards it is probably fake.

The easiest way is to look for the style number, which can usually be found on the tag in the bag. If it's real, the number should match records with the designer company. Stitching is another thing to look for.

Most knock off handbags feel cheap. The material is not soft as the real deal. If you have a monogrammed bad with a logo on it, make sure the logo lines up perfectly on all sides of the bag. Check the inside for a serial number too.

Each brand is different- for Coach, it's how the Cs line up, and the C logo will be inside or outside, but not both. With Louis Vuitton, the purse or bag will be made from one solid piece of material.

Depending on the brand, you can tell by the fabric or leather and the stitching. Some designers also have certain markers (stickers) inside their bags.

It depends on the brand.You have to look at the MADE IN thing inside that bad to make sure its the rite thing. Also you have to look at material.

This varies a lot depending on the brand, since all brands are unique. You should check online for the specific brand/product.
