Lightbulb Tokidoki fans! how to spot fakes!

http://www.tokidoki.it/
^^^ if you have no clue what im babbling about.

OK so this post comes from an incident i had this week.

I went in to a local Winners store and spotted a large Tokidoki (by LeSportsac) bag priced at $99. normally these go for $160-$180.

since my girl loves this stuff, i grabbed it.

little did i know it was a fake.

I have a feeling someone bought the original bag and returned this FAKE. it had all the tags and "Qee" doll/keychain. man im pissed. feverishly we checked all her other bags, luckily no other fakes.

here's how to spot fakes:

- the Qee doll is not painted clearly and sharply, usually somewhat blurry.it should be packed in a clear plastic SEALED bag.
- the zipper is Not multicolored or odd looking. a real toki bag's multicolored zipper is predominately red in color. the one i got ha NO RED AT ALL. note: some actually have monochrome zippers.
- the real Zipper back will have "RiRi M6" engraved deeply into it.
- prints are always CLEAR AND SHARP never blurry
- the real "leather" straps or loops are fairly stiff and hard. fakes are usually soft and pliable
- the silkscreens Lesportsac logo on the zippers are supposed to be VERY CLEAR and CLEAN.
- a small black "Made in China" tag should be on the inside of every bag
- the carbiner/clasp will have printing on boths sides, not just one.

the bag i got was a Gioco Lamore. the tag said it was a Bianco. that shoulda been a clue.

keep your eyes open, even if it is a big chain store.

As a past employee of Winners I know they do not intentionally sell fakes. All the fakes I've seen sold there were returns.

Winners' price tags are too generic and the employees there aren't educated enough to spot fakes. We've even had a manager give some Vietnamese lady a refund on a $500 fake Gucci before...

They probably won't even know the authenticity of the one you're returning. If they ask just tell them what happened. They'll probably end up writing it off anyway.

my x was one of the few that bought it dec of 2006 and then summer of 2007 u would see falk already at night market.

it's super easy to spot fake for tokidiki.
the zipper: Real, EVERY SINGLE metal tab that makes the zipper is a different color, if it's fake, it's like rainbow color that changes gradually thoughout

my apologies but i have to bring this back from the dead instead of starting a new thread.

it's the xmas season and my girl loves this stuff. i'm looking for tokidoki stuff or hello kitty 50th anniversary stuff. since voltage has closed, there doesnt seem to be a store that carries these products. frontage has some i believe, but not enough selection.

tia
