I put off creating this page until I ran across several “fake” items that I knew you would get a good laugh from. It never fails that when I find a good example of bad behavior I either forgot my cell phone or my camera. Not this time. Here is a good example with more to follow. This page may become quite congested so please be patient as I try new ways of formatting to best incorporate the easiest way to show these.
|Armani vs Armwni||As one of the more popular names in clothing, it is also one of the more copied and there are a great number of names that look very much like the original. Even the eagle looks the same.|
|Burberry vs Bubrery||This one fooled the ShopGoodwill.com auction site which is where I found it. It was pulled off their site shortly after this photograph was placed here. A very good fake and very close to looking like the real thing.|
|Another Burberry||The colors look similar but Burberry is well known for their plaid colors. Others try to take advantage of this to their advantage.|
|Gucci vs Guxxi||Looks like the real thing and may even sound alike but it just isn’t the same.|
|Versace vs Versatche||Sounds the same but the quality just isn’t the same.|
|Made where?||You can use the same font but it isn’t the same.|
There are several good websites where you can find great examples of what to look out for. StepByStep provides some of the best I’ve seen so far. Here is a link to some of these – StepByStep.com/style/labels-brands
