I buy my things for the cheap. the cheapest bag I have was actually a gift from my aunt who said it cost her 10 dollars. but that bag has been alive and going for years now. all of my bags cost less then 50 dollars so it doesn't matter what your money status is, buy things that'll last you years.

I have to disappoint them with the argument that they don't know with cheaper products, if the producers are paid enough. It rarely makes much difference, even the most expensive products don't like paying fair. You need to do a research.

I believe that it's fine for cheaper brands to make things that are alike, but it's definitely not fine to literally copy the same shirt/phone with other brand's name. Doesn't matter how much it costs tho. People can sell for how much they want to, it's us who buy. So I don't really see the problem with overpriced products.

To each its own. I have bought Luxury and I have bought replicas. When I bought a luxury item, I felt like "Wow, I can now afford this." I didnt have to save up for a year either. It felt nice. But now I am like "Just because I can afford this, do I really want to spend that much money when there are high end replicas that look just the same?" I can't take my bags with me to heaven. At the end of the day, we are all just walking around with nicely coated animal carcasses on our arm.

Designs of clothing and handbags are copied all over the fashion world. It seems like it becomes a bigger issue only when made in China. The while argument about who is making these items and their pay can also be made for iPhones and Jordans. I haven't found hard evidence linking copycat items to terrorism, I just keep hearing the same repeated narrative that it does. These items have completely changed from the stuff you could buy in some random alley.

I bet most people who buy fakes don't even know the real product/brand or think it's original since they've never even seen a designer good in person

Jo 7 oy oldin
mostly everything you use whether it be clothes to electronics was probably made in a country that under pays their workers that are possibly underaged and overworked. This type of stuff just has more direct links to crimes that are tangible in the US, but I don’t find any worse than buying an iPhone. Also, I think there’s a difference between making something counterfeit like putting Gucci‘s name on a handbag even if you’re not Gucci and to just straight out stealing their design. If you put Gucci‘s name on it, whether or not it was actually made by Gucci the core design is at least known to be Guccis. completely stealing Their design and claiming it to be your own is when that becomes a problem.
Shennan McArdle

Personally I think that you should buy what you can afford. If you can afford those high end designer clothing and handbags then buy one, if you can’t buy something else but it shouldn’t be a copy of someone else’s art. I do have more expensive bands them some of my friends (not most designer clothing) and my friends always ask me why because it is expensive. But if I wear my 100 dollar leggings at least once a week then the price shouldn’t matter. And it doesn’t have to be a fake Gucci or Prada to look expensive I have a small purse that I got from Forever 21 and a lot of people thought it was a few hundred dollars.

this video is interesting because buzzfeed is also known for stealing video ideas, so it’s interesting to hear them discuss ethics!
Esmeralda GamgeeTook
Supporting organised criminal groups is no less ethical than supporting fast fashion such as Forever 21. These companies are responsible for horrific human rights abuses and huge environmental destruction. They are as much criminals
Douglas De Fatima
Some high end fashion brands will just put their logos on low quality products and sell it for thousands of dollars, so as long as they don’t offer real quality and valuable materials for their price tags I will give counterfelt goods a pass.
Chem Is Cry

Kind of bugs me how some people make comments as if they are entitled to brand name designs, even if they can't afford them. "I had to steal it, I can't afford it." It's not like food, or housing, you don't need it to live. If designs are similar, but obviously not the same, then that's fine. But copying a design and trying to pass it off as an original is wrong, and illegal in many places. These people are criminals. They're profiting off of other people's work. And they use questionable labour (sweat shop labour). If you go on eBay there are soooo many fakes. And they don't even mention they are fakes, so many people think they're real. People who are probably not aware that a $15 Supreme or Gucci t-shirt is going to be fake. Most people are not wearing it for the design itself, they're wearing it for the brand name. I think for shops like Forever 21, H&M, asos, etc. If they make a similar design then it shouldn't be a problem if it is different enough. People on Instagram or Etsy have their art stolen and used for others to profit off of. Or even have others claiming it is their art.

I wouldn’t touch a fake. It’d make me feel bad, and I’m happy to spend thousands of pounds on a designer bag because it goes up in value and I can sell it at a later date. Hyperfakes are a few hundred dollars but you can’t ever resell it because it won’t ever pass an authenticity test.

Ok, people said people not get paid enough, how about everyone that works retail get paid peanuts pretty much. While the owners are making millions without thought of that cashier or cook. People don't veer away from eating out or shopping because of the employees not getting paid enough.

Ahh except many will tell you Gucci and other brands are getting made by cheap laborers in other countries or still made in China and shipped to Italy just to get the tag added. It's not all brands, but I think people should really look at the sourcing of luxury products and see where they come from. However, copying designs of designers isn't cool, but I'm just saying luxury doesn't always mean it's better.

I have yet to find a designer piece that I just thought was gorgeous. I have found handmade, non designer items to be just stunning. I'm more concerned with whether I like that item and does it fit my needs. I don't care who makes it. The only thing I have that is a big label are my perscription coach sunglasses. That's it. I've had them for over 2 yrs and I love them. But it was because of the size and color. My regular glasses were under $100. So I'd rather buy what I love, then worry about brands.

If you've worked and saved up for a Rolex, a nice car, or Louis luggage, there's a sense of accomplishment when you're able to buy it. If you're just buying plastic junk out of someone's trunk, you're doing it because you want people to _think_ you can afford it.

A lot of people seem to have this entitlement that they deserve to have these things. Like one woman in this video who commented that she buys fakes because she can't afford the real items. I'm poor but I have saved up and bought brand items. Nothing high end, because imagine someone who is very obviously poor wearing one high end item. It wouldn't look right. I also don't buy ones with large logos or flash the brand name. Most people wouldn't even know, but it just feels better to know you are wearing something quality. Fits better, the fabric feels better. And you just feel good.

I personally prefer to spend my $ on the real thing. I love Chanel and Louis Vuitton bags and will always purchase from them. I mean I get it, you want to make people think you spend $3k on a bag. But if you can’t afford a real LV, just buy a real Forever 21 bag like they said in the video. There’s nothing wrong with that!!

If the bag has something different like label on inside showing signs its a fakie then no big deal. Even in food business they copy. McDonald's came out with chicken nuggets then burger king chicken tenders. Its competitive. With the prices of these designer bags its a rip off anyway so who's ripping who off? Ever watch fight BBB back with David Horowitz? Should have. The cost of making the bag was a fraction of price and a lot of these $4 to $5k bags are not worth that much. Rich or not its unsettling. I find it stupid. I also know by the time fake bags come out the original most likely made enough for it to be a popular bag. The ones who can afford originals will still buy the originals.
