    Are there any brands you won't buy (online) because of counterfeits?

    I nominate Lacoste & Burberry. (Not just because of fakery, but also because they are totally chav.)

    I have yet to see fake Kenneth Cole or Allen Edmonds.

    I don't know how a counterfeit factory is capable of producing quality any lower than authentic kenneth coles. In fact, the fakes if they exist, might be better than the real thing.

    if a brand is able to be convincingly copied its a good sign they spend more on advertising than construction.

    not that i would ever completely cross off a brand because of the number of counterfeits out there (who really cares what other people do...i only buy stuff for myself and no one ever need know what brand they are or how much they retail for...this does mean that typically my stuff isn't faked too often)...but i'd be very careful buying anything Chanel or LV from any place other than a reputable luxury goods store (or B&S [​IMG] )
