I never buy designer bags. That's because I can't afford them, and I prefer to spend my money on various pieces of clothing instead ONE thing.

That said... I own a LV speedy 35. It's vintage, inherited from my grandma. No one ever asked me if it is original... I think it's because the fakes are usually speedy 25 and they're new. I also never feel conscious wearing it, I treat it like every other bag I own.

That said... Can I ask a question?

I'm Italian, and here you can find a lot of fakes. Only in the street markets though, and it's illegal.

I never understood how in the US the stores can make replicas... Maybe the laws are different.

My question is... Can I trust Us websites that make replicas? Are they good?

I found this site (http://www.aaareplicas.com/). I love, love, love the design of the Hermes Birkin. But there's no way I can afford that, not until I'm 40 and wealthy :p.

So I was thinking to order a replica (it's 300 euros). Also because here in Rome I never saw a Birkin. Nobody knows what it is, and the few that know it don't know the absurd price of it.

I don't want to go around and say that is an original one, but I want one identical to the original, well made, because I love it.

Suggestions?

^ i understand where you're coming from, and i feel the same way
it's sooo ridiculous and out of reach that so few can afford the real deal anyway!!

i too really do like the shape...it's a great basic tote
but honestly, i would never do something that actually said hermes etc on it
i'd go for a guilt-free, unbranded replica if i were you
i sent you a pm...

there are actually a lot of italian designers that make really well made bags very close in style to, lets say for example, hermes. i would rather go with a well made italian bag in the "style-of" rather than a knock off. there are just too many bad things associated with the construction and business of counterfeit bags, and there's such quality in manufacturers where you are from....it seems a bit silly to order a US replica. There was a member here that posted in the 'new bag purchases' thread and she had a bag custom made in italy very close to the structure and quality of a hermes. i'll see if i can find it and perhaps you can PM her for more info on where she purchased it from and the like...
