How to Spot a Fake Lacoste

My sister just had a free Lacoste bag after a known credit card had it for free on certain purchases. And, she among others is only as  excited to have this high - end bag.

But, practically how do we spot a fake from the original bag?  I have consolidated what experts say about this bag originally created in 1933 by tennis player Rene Lacoste.

The following are the criteria to assess:

  1. Materials. A Lacoste bag can be a cotton canvas, a PVC or leather - made. As for the colors, they can come in subtle color like brown, white, tan, black for PVC's made, and of bright colors for cotton canvas and leather  - made. You can check out the Lacoste official website for their latest and classic color collections. All Lacoste bags do have the distinct Lacoste crocodile logo.
  2. Logo. All bags do have green crocodile logo perfectly sewn on the bag's material. The logo shall be found at the bottom part of the logo. Depending on the material, the logo shall have the company name. 
  3. Stitching. Check out the quality of stitching if it is evenly and securely made otherwise you have a fake.
  4. Price. An authentic Lacoste bag has around $ 30 at least, so, if you have lower than this then probably you have a fake unless you get it from a legitimate Lacoste outlet or boutiques.
