this is a fairly large sized forum, and i just wanted a general consensus
I wasn't accusing, I was inquiring. Good to know you don't buy fakes.

the truth is a fake is a fake


if u cant afford the real thing, u are tryin too hard dude. who u tring to fool??

a NSX with F360 conversion will never be a real F360, it will still be a NSX

i rather have one clean JDM NSX than a half ass ferrari and a half ass NSX within.

pretty lame in my opinion, i cant understand why the fuck would anyone buy fake stuff. It aint real, doesnt matter how real it looks like, it is not from the OEM manufacture. Sporting fake shit is just pure ridiculous, cant afford it why not buy something that fit ur budget.

I would not buy fake Cartier watch becasue of quality and nothing else.

lol i laughed so hard, fakes of coach? or was that an example, cuz i never knew they made replicas for cheaper stuff

People who buy fake clothing are only concerned with the fake logo/brand.

if you can afford it, just buy it. who cares about people who buys fake ones, just because they can't afford it, does that make you a better person? HECK NO! They're probably don't care about the clothes and have more money than you.

I can't afford a lambo....so If I made one out of my Honda civic and told everyone it was real. If it looked dead on, would it be considered a lambo still?

You'd basically be a poser. Yes alot of name brand stuff is overpriced. If you know so, why buy into it? If you can't afford the real deal why would someone bother with the fake ones. It like wearing a fake Rolex. Or wearing real flashy fake jewellery.

If you can't afford a 10,000$ Hermes bag, why FRONT like you can afford it. Most the time ppl buy this stuff for the name and not so much for the design.

ok to play devil's advocate, I want to put out the other side of the coin

If you gain some sort of social power or mobility from looking a certain part but you cant afford the status symbols, if you get fake ones that can convince everyone they are real then you are one step ahead. Its a power game, and if thats a technique you want to use to get ahead, then so be it. You place yourself in the higher status circle - just dont get caught or your game's up. Make sure you assert yourself enough when you get there so that even if you did get caught, it wouldnt matter anymore.

In that way, these expensive items are just a front anyways, even if you have the real ones. So do what you need to do

I wear knockoff dress shirts for work all the time. They fit perfect. Mind you they dont have a big logo or anything, they have a small stiched logo on the pocket (armani, boss etc). Also half my ties are knock offs too. Why the fuck would i pay 60-70 for one tie that no would even know if its some brand name, where I get them dirt cheap in HK or China.

Odd, I don't know what's so funny?

They make fakes for everything. They make GUESS fakes, Guess is way cheaper than coach.

Still though, what's so funny? I like Coach, I hate LV, you're laughing at a personal preference?

Oki, this is just my opinion.

One who buys fake is only for the name brand itself.
One who buys the real deal is usually going for quality.

This is why a lot of people usually buy real Louis Vuitton(just an example) compared to the fake ones. The fake does not have that quality. And yes, it's true, the people with the real deal can usually take a fake from a mile away lolz.

**And no, I would never buy fake. I go for quality and if I got a fake it just ruins everything else I have lolz**

I have fake Gucci socks and I think some Tommy Hillfilger and Diesal socks. They were cheaper than no name brand. I look at the costs, not the logo though. Can't go wrong for 6 pairs of socks for $1 haha

this is simply not true. 99% of people who buy authentic, buy it for the name as well. they are incapable of actually discerning a true quality item and therefore put their trust in that name brand. if you believe your statement then you actually believe the articles are worth what the companies sell them for. they are, in fact, only worth what the customers will pay for them. the higher they charge, the more desirable the articles become. it's a completely backwards system, and it's for fools.

as stated in the title, i was referring to high end fakes, not flea market louis.
there are high end fake goods that are completely indistinguishable from the authentic ones, even to the most trained eye. exact duplicates that usually run for about half of what the "real" ones do. however, they are even still only worth that because that's how much people in that market will pay

sorry to break it to you, but it's all in your head. they've run their game on you

people who buy fakes are losers...
whats the point of buying a fake anything? The only reason you would buy something fake is to try and trick people into believing its real...otherwise whats the point?

If you gotta "pretend" you're cool then you're as fake as the shit you buy...

I have absolutely zero respect for people who try to pawn off their fake shit as real...whether it be a fake watch, clothes, what have you..

If you can't afford it, dont pretend you can

Oh yawn. Welfare, that was my opinion. Flame me as much as you want. Like I've said before, AAA quality is still fake. If one buys one, one cannot lie to oneself.
