I like the Coach signature print. Heck, I even have a duffle bag and coordinating tote for light travel. But I just can't get with the fake version. I remember the first and last fake designer bag I purchased. It was a Kate Spade knock-off from the famous "Alley" in downtown Los Angeles. I had it for a month before it ripped. I kept thinking, I would have done better to save my pennies and buy the real thing. Not to mention, I couldn't help but wonder if everyone knew my slick designer handbag was a fraud.
Here's a blog dedicated to the end of fake coach buying. While I wouldn't be committed to writing an entire blog solely on why you shouldn't buy fake Coach handbags, I definitely agree with many of the points this blogger makes. If you can't afford the real handbag, it's okay. Many of us can't. Just buy something else. Preferably something that doesn't scream, "I'm as real as an eight-dollar bill."
