      Difference between unbranded and fake sunglasses

      Currently, I am trying to buy up fashionable generic accessories for my retail clothing store. However, I cant tell the difference on suppliers websites whether sunglasses are simply unbranded or fakes. Ive received mixed reviews about the situation from other retailers. Can anyone give me some tips?

      First of all, you will know that sunglasses are unbranded if they do not have any unique logo, name or design on them.

      ● Famous brands that make sunglasses and have distinctive logos are Gucci, Chanel, Dolce and Gabana, Prada, and Christian Dior.

      Sometimes companies will make logos look almost exactly like the ones for these brand names, so it can be difficult to tell the difference between unbranded and branded sunglasses. Here are some tips that can help you spot the fakes:

      ● Brand name sunglasses are priced in the hundreds of dollars. If a supplier is selling you “branded” sunglasses for 85 percent of what they are usually worth, then they probably do not live up to their label.

      ● Don’t buy sunglasses that are “replicas” or “inspired by” brand names. They are definitely unbranded.

      ● Examine the spelling and spacing of the brand name. If it is spelled differently and oddly spaced, then it is a fake product.

      ● Compare photos of the sunglasses in question, with the branded sunglasses.

      ● If you can get a sample and it comes without packaging, or with unbranded packaging, then the sunglasses are fakes.

      ● If possible, get your hands on a branded pair of sunglasses. Compare the weight of the product and the darkness of the lenses to the sample. If the sample is lighter in both weight and lens color compared to the branded sunglasses, it is a fake.

      ● It helps to know in which country the sunglasses are made? Most designer brands are made in Italy; so, if the sunglasses you are looking at are not made in Italy, they are not branded.
      ● Compare the sample’s model number to a branded pair of sunglasses. If they don’t match up, you know the sunglasses you are looking at are unbranded.

      There is nothing wrong with buying generic or unbranded sunglasses wholesale and then, reselling them. However, you should always be aware that you are buying unbranded merchandise and be honest with your resale customers about that fact.
