Mens Designer Wear

To avoid being conned by ‘counterfeit products including fake copies of designer garments; shop wisely, remain vigilant and know your rights!’

Perception Shapes Reality

The current Men’s Office Dress Code for suits is streamlined and classically tailored. Fake suits made of cheap-looking material and uneven tailoring may hinder promotion because they may give the wrong impression.
60% of likeability and perceived trustworthiness is image, formed on that initial first impression demonstrating how important it is to portray a positive self image in a working environment.

Mens Designer Wear Labels


New labels contained in designer suits are neat-looking and invisibly stitched into the garment. Fake suits can be spotted by the fake label which tends to be slightly wonky, un-ironed and hanging off by a thread!  The classic fake is the mass produced Lacoste tennis teeshirt containing the famous crocodile branding. In 2003, Crocodile Garments and Lacoste had a famous court-room ‘fight’ to retain the rights of the crocodile logo.  The outcome of the case is that Lacoste crocodiles must ‘face right’ and a crocodile from Crocodile Garment’s must ‘face left.’ Other ways to spot a ‘mock crock’ is when the garment claims to be Lacoste and the crocodile doesn’t appear on the label of mens or womens designer wear!


Mens Designer Wear Cost


If you’re Boss suit contains a label of £100, you should be worried! If your suit doesn’t come with a price tag of £300 upwards, its not designer! To spot a fake designer garment, remain vigilant - “is the price right or suspiciously low?”

Origin of Garment

Check the origin of the garment or designer stores. If your products produced in a sweatshop in China, Thailand or Japan, its probably shipped (on mass) to the UK and its definitely not designer!  If you’re not sure, it may help to have a photograph of the genuine design to compare details.

Materials

Always check the quality and feel of the material.  Does the overall feel of the material look synthetic and drape well?
