Many people have asked me recently about how to spot if certain brand items are authentic or if they are fake. My answer is usually the same regardless of the brand. However, since I am on the subject of Dsquared Clothing I am going to talk about that this time. Spotting replica, imitation, or fake items can sometimes be challenging for a lay person. The general rule of thumb is that if an item is highly overpriced due to its brand name it is going to have a lot of fakes.
For example, brands which sell cotton t-shirts with no expensive materials or other costs, these may costs them 5$ to make, if they retail these for 200$ than there is a huge potential and drive for bootleggers to produce copies of these items. Furthermore, spotting copied items has become increasingly difficult especially since copied items are nowadays almost identical to the originals and the quality is usually the same as the original in the case of the so-called “high-end replica” items.
In the particular case of Dsquared2 it is true that this brand is definitely vulnerable to imitation because it has extremely high prices in its stores for items like cotton t-shirts and denim jeans. Since these materials are extremely cheap and readily available to anyone there are definitely a large number of replica Dsquared items on the market.
So the question remains, how can a person spot a replica Dsquared 2:
1) The price…If the price is too good to be true, then it probably is fake.
2) It is being sold on eBay. 99.99% chance it is fake.
3) It is being sold on ioffer.com. 100% chance it is fake if you receive it. 50% chance it is a scam.
4) The website selling the goods does not have Dsquared in its name.
5) The website is not a Dsquared outlet.
If more then 3 of these things are true then you should consider the item may be fake. However, since we live in a free society, if you choose to purchase a replica Dsquared it is entirely up to you. Probably, 90% of the Dsquared we see on the streets everyday is a replica, and we barely notice it. Just like Louis Vuitton purses which are notoriously copied. If there is a demand someone is going to fill that demand and that will never change so long as we are human-beings in a global market economy.
