- Look for the tag
The tag on a genuine Michael Kors wallet will usually display the style code and manufacture date. It may also include other relevant information, such as the materials used to make the bag and the country of origin. Some older styles that are no longer available will not contain a tag at all.
Real Michael Kors bags should also smell earthy and rich, while fake ones will have a plastic or metallic scent. Inauthentic logo hardware will typically stand out more from the leather, while authentic logs are embedded and perfectly centered.
Michael Kors bags made in China and the Dominican Republic are marked with a four-digit code that corresponds to the month of production. In addition, all Michael Kors bags display the country of origin on their tags. If a bag does not display this information, it is likely a forgery. In this case, a quick call to customer service will help to resolve the issue.
- Look for the country of origin
Michael Kors bags range between $190 and $550, so it’s important to be suspicious if you find one for much cheaper. This is especially true if you are purchasing the bag from a third-party seller or a retailer that does not sell authentic MK products.
Typically, the MK tag will have the style code, date of manufacture, and country of origin printed on it. However, it is important to note that these codes are not serial numbers and should not be used as a means of verifying authenticity.
Another way to spot fake MK purses is by looking at the leather. The brand’s trademark Saffiano leather features a fine criss-cross pattern that is easily recognizable. Authentic Saffiano leather will feel heavy and rigid, while fakes tend to feel soft and floppy. Also, the panel seam should be a single, firm piece of leather. The MK logo hardware should also have four even, proportionate stitches underneath it.
- Look for the authenticity tag
While it can be difficult to tell if a Michael Kors purse is genuine or fake from just looking at it in photographs, it is possible to vet the quality of these bags by carefully assessing their common features and looking for finer details. Assessing the hardware stitching, leather, monogram alignment, straps and style number of the bag along with its manufacture date tag is a great way to ensure you are purchasing a genuine designer bag.
In terms of stitching, a Michael Kors handbag should always have uniform stitches that are straight and clean looking. If the stitching looks crooked or uneven, this is a sign that the bag is counterfeit.
Also, authentic Michael Kors purses will have a rich, earthy smell that is not plastic-like. If the smell is plastic-like, it’s a good indicator that the bag is counterfeit. The zippers should also feel sturdy to the touch and glide smoothly. The metal zipper pulls should be engraved with the MK logo and be securely attached to the purse.
