nope. a fake is a fake is a fake is a fake.

i'd rather buy something that had no names or lesser of a brand than a high-end fake.

Even if it's those A++ grade stuff i still wouldn't.

for example i had a family member buy a fake cartier watch... identical in every way that it looks down to the smallest detail.. however the defining difference was in it's weight. wasn't off by a lot but there was still a difference.

i'd rather buy some no name thing than a fake. it's like who you trying to fool?

I think the only reason you're asking this is cause you wanna get an A++++ fake and you want to see if anybody else does it so you feel less guilty.

Truth?

I would! But I won't taint my authentic collection, if I have one. For example Coach? Won't buy a fake only because I have an all authentic collection and I'd like to keep it that way, I will buy used cheap stuff if I need to save money. If it was another designer rip off, I would though... I saved money and if it really is an A+++++ replica, you won't be able to tell.

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

Meh... if it's really good the average joe won't have a clue, but I wouldn't try to pass it off as real and be all pissy when asked if it's fake.

do you care about quality or only looks?

That being said, I think rolex needs to step up their game if fakes are being made that outperform them

i'd buy the most complex extravagant A+++ fake item for kicks, it would be so bling that i'd look ridiculous wearing it.

buy whatever you like.. lol

whocares wat other people think about you?

it's just like walking down the street, holding your gf's hands, knowing that she has a penis in her pants or airbags in her bra. no one will notice since they don't give a shit about you. at the end, it's you that have to deal with the consequences of seeing an extra penis in the bedroom.

that is one of the best quotes I have heard in a while..........it is a personal thing for me, but I don't buy fake watches, clothes, perf auto parts, wheels, etc, however, I have no problem buying fake cosmetic parts (ACS pedals, carbon fiber interior, etc)......I do feel I am lying to myself though.... but I rather spend $700 for a fake ACS CF interior Vs $3200 for the real deal.....just too big of a price gap Vs quality difference.

Your goof if you wear something like that, what is the point of pretending to be rich? Its not a matter of saving money, its a matter of position.

A rich business man could be wearing a fake Rolex watch while everyone compliments him on this pricey item. While the other guy in the room who happens to be a waiter, but saved up enough to buy an actual REAL Rolex watch, is questioned by everyone around him.
"Is it fake?"
"Looks like one of those high end fakes".

question should be:

why pretend to own something that you can't afford to own?

ot: did any one catch simpsons from last night - mapple - myphone - myphonies

if you dont belong in a higher status
why try to look like you do?

there is nothing wrong with affordable fashion like GAP, old navy, american eagle etc.

there's nothing more stupid looking than a decked out LV, prada, gucci wearing guy getting out of a '88 civic.

Truth?
false. i actually buy all my clothes, aside from shoes, socks and underwear, at thrift stores. i purposely stay away from name brands, let alone fakes. so many reasons why i choose to shop at these places, but i won't get into that.
this is a fairly large sized forum, and i just wanted a general consensus
