Has anyone here bought fake clothing and/or footwear from AliExpress? Was the product inferior in quality to the original? Was is noticeably fake? Were you satisfied?
It would be great if you could post pictures of your product together with your experience.
Compare the prices, look at the spelling of the item's description etc.
Some fake sellers use the same photos which are different from the real ones.
Also the item may be in a colour that the originals were never released in.
You can't really answer this. It depends. There are some really really good fakes there though. It really varies and you have to know what you're looking for.
What are you trying to buy from there Anon?
Bought these for 25, it's been a month and I'm still waiting for them to arrive
I copped two pairs to see what they were like.
-Black-out Nike Free Run 2.0, $8:
Very good quality, just like the real thing. Very light and comfy, not noticeably fake at all. Wear them for running and when I go to to store or something.
>Black Rick Owens Dunks (not Dreambox ones, still fake) $50:
Cheap, stiff leather. Silhouette, sole and toebox are pretty decent, better than Dreamboxes. Came with real looking dust bag. Never wear these tbh, just wanted to see how they'd be. These also smellt really chemically so the first month or so I put them outside, kek.
you poor, poor soul. nike jacks up the price significantly for profit. the cost of manufacturing is not NEARLY what you pay. youre literally paying for the name. you should know these shoes are made in china...
They weren't on Aliexpress but on Tao Bao, which has more products (real designer shit too) but you need an agent. The Free Runs I copped where part of a sale, but I reckon you'd still be able to find them for about $15.
Pic related, they're comfy as fuck. They feel like wearing socks really. I've had them for about six months now without any problems though I don't wear them that often.
I brought a $10 shirt off there during a sale before I started browsing /fa/. Material is bad.
I have seen some reasonable tshirts and hats though. Got a reaonable beanie off thwre for $3.
Also have a jumper coming from taobao that arrived in my city yesterday, but im on vacation until the 11th. Will post pictures as per a request when i get home.
You won't find good quality Geos unless you can find someone who will make them by order, but you need contacts in China for that.
Raf velcro fakes are quite decent and relatively easy to find.
only stuff i buy on aliexpress has been underwear(fake CK, AC, and AB), Outerwear(fake TAD ranger jacket and pants) and a pair of cargo pants.
I have been pretty happy with everything. The last batch of fake CK's look really obviously counterfeit(The lettering on the waist band is too high, so part of the "C" in Calvin is cut-off) but they still feel as good as the real ones, and were less than $3 a pair.
The cargo pants, while painfully un/fa/, are very well made and comfy as fuck. Cant find my size(28x30) in cargo pants cause of all the fatties who's vanity sizing has ruined the "xsmall" and "small" sizes.
why? Its made with the same material, and 90% of the stuff i bought looks legit.
Real designer underwear starts at $20 a pair(and some of the AC is $40). The stuff i picked up is $3-$6 a pair.
the diffusion licensed Calvin Klein/Tommy Hilfiger stuff you get at winners/marshalls/the department store isn't designer tho
but aren't you afraid someone will call you out when they see your fake undies? idk man that'd make me pretty paranoid
Has anyone purchased any Abercrombie & Fitch Tees from Ali Express? I've always been a fan of the way A&F tees fit me but I never was a fan of their logos and the whole masculine queer stigma associated with the brand. There's a dude on Ali Express selling A&E tees but he also happens to be selling plain ones alongside the graphic tees, not sure whether to buy them tbh
I bought fake clothing and/or footwear from AliExpress. The product was inferior in quality to the original. It was noticeably fake. I was not satisfied. It would have been great if I could post pictures along with my description of the AliExpress shopping experience. Thank you and have a nice day.
I bought a fur jacket off there, it never came and I wasted 100 bucks. I also saw pictures of what the actual product would have looked like if I got it, and it looked nothing like what it was supposed to look like.
I've looked into it. From what I've seen, Taobao is the place to go for the really good ones.
It's risky though. You may get a really good fake that's pretty much indistinguishable from the real thing, or you may some some bullshit.
If you poke around the internet enough, you can find brokers who specialize in replicas as well as customer reviews.
Aliexpress holds all the money for paid items for 6-9 months, so the merchants dont actually 'get' the money till long after you would have been scammed.
99% of the time, you just need to open a dispute and you'll get your money back the same day(Because the people who moderate this shit know when sellers are scamming, and ususally wont even wait for the seller to respond to the dispute, if its clear they are scammers)
I tried ordering a pair of moxpad earbuds. After getting a fake tracking number, I opened a complaint and had my money refunded the next day.
Be warned that if you open a dispute over a seller who's clearly a legit person, the aliexpress guys will hear you out, but will operate under the assumption that you're the one trying to scam...
Yeah, i would assume *EVERYTHING* there is counterfeit.Theres a very small chance you could be getting 'asian market' american brand stuff, but most sellers know they knock-offs that are AAA quality are 99% as good as the real shit, and cost them pennies on the dollar to make... So the question is, do you want to drop $50 on a really convincing A&F sweater, or $15 on one that *might* be from the exact same factory, but might also be a lower quality copy. Either way.. dont expect the real thing.
in middle school my friend told me that his dad wore A&F and i think there might be something high-concept about that. wearing cheap clothes for preteens except as a grown man with morgages and a career
Anyone want the link o this seller? Makes high-tier counterfeit and its relatively cheap. Here's a picture of Pyrex shorts I ordered
Bought a knock-off Visvim Lhamo from Aliexpress for $50. Took a month, but I got an exact replica which I compared to a friends authentic version. Only thing that was different is that it had no tags. Otherwise, perfect reproduction.
And there have also been some pieces I've bought from that site which have been total shit. Inferior fabric, whack stitching, marked as a Medium but fits like an XS.
Aliexpress really is a coin flip.
thanks, finally i can afford HBA (just kidding)
off topic but there's a korean girl in my school i think she's a couple years younger, she's always wearing clearly fake HBA (and i know nothing about streetwear shit, it just looks really fake), idk if that's cute or not?
Honestly shit like street wear, fakes are fine. If you're appealing to the masses then most likely the status quo don't know shit about fashion. I mean at my school theres a kid that wheres Ricky Dicky boots to school (most likely fake since he looks like such a fuccboi). Theres some supreme that look really great on that seller as well. That said I bought the pyrex shorts for sports (wear that shit while sparring)
Are you enough of a fuccboi to buy knock-off dunks?
Got Red Octobers off aliexpress for christmas from my dad, I'll let you know how they are tomorrow. I also bought a fake Pyrex flannel, it's nice but I ordered a size up from what I usually get, but I should have ordered two sizes up because a large fits like a small. The fucking chinese have tiny sizes.
These look really well done if they're actual photos of the fakes, are they worth it? These are my favorite Raf velcros
You dun goofed. Most ali RO's are dookie. sneakerahead.net or yeezybay.com has the best quality ones. A little more pricey tho the best quality RO's are the UA's at 300ish. Dont know if your willing to spend that tho.
These got a lot of positive reviews, the pictures that people posted in the feedback had a colorway that looked pretty darn close to the authentic RO's and they were more expensive than the others. Hopefully they're good, I figure it's a Christmas gift so if they're shitty it wasn't my money spent on them and I can justify still wearing them
Yeah honestly at this point with them being one of the most replicated sneakers they will prob look good on feet. Even if you had kanye west with you saying they're real people will still think their fake. Unless you know alot about reps majority cant legit check them anyway besides just "thier fake". Anyway hope your dad enjoys them. Planning on getting some plats soon.
>bought some pleated balenciagas (red)
>cold as fuck today
>wore my Chrome Hearts star hoodie+the joggers and the pleats to the gym just because
Comfy as fuck and for the price pretty good. I'm thinking about deadlifting in the pleats just for fucks
Im sure as Fuck not lying. Sometimes they do. Known someone who got a letter in the mail saying their parcel was confiscated for buying fake Vivienne Westwood shoes, I saw the letter myself.
could you link me the product and could you please post some pictures of them (detail of Y3 logo on the back and yohji yamamoto on the side would be great). If you did you'd make me very happy
okay, since I live in a 3rd world country I buy shit off aliexpress. No one knows what the brands I buy are, so it's not like I do it to show I can afford some popular and fashionable stuff. If I have to pay 40$ for shitty sweatshirt with quasi-graffitti shitty graphic, I prefer to get similar quality sweatshirt with something I actually like.
What I bought is
>2 bape sweats - they look nice but after some time one of them is already growing those little cotton-balls since it's shitty chinese fabric
>1 MISBHV hoodie - this one I really like. high quality for a fake.
>some CK undies - for 2.5$/pair it's the best purchase quality/price
>Dope Chef track pants - great pants, the same kind of problem as with bape sweats (cotton balls start to grow), bought them to have something to wear with my fake...
>Y-3 qasa all black - yup. never had real ones in hands, but I guess there might be only few pairs in my whole country, so idgaf. people already think that paying 80$ for pair of sneakers is ridiculous
Other than that I bought some gadgets, like FMA pocket watch with necklace for my animu loving cousin's birthday, foam roller, watch, wallet, sunglasses and BDSM toys set.
I can send some pics of fake clothing, but it's really hard to tell their quality if you don't have it in hands.
