Hehe. I am not sure if the OP meant this, but actually there are 'real' 'fake' bags. These are the ones made in the 'real' factories when the doors are closed, ie, after business hours are finished. Or there are also the bags that are made to deliberately be rejected by quality control. For example, they use a zip that is too long.

My 2 fils, and based on a number of years living in and working in China, where nothing is real!

will give you a couple of examples based on fact and experience.

1) There are several 'fake' markets in Shanghai, Beijing and pretty much most cities in China, the majority of the stuff sold there is crap. However some stalls will sell the 'geniune fakes' handbags being one of those commodities usually supplied by the same factories in China that make the real ones and sold as a nice little side line by some dodgy factory owner/manager. I bought several 'geniune' Paul Smith suits from a shop in the city centre, i knew the owner and he had a deal with a friend of his that managed the factory that made PS clothes there.The label on a PS suit will say made in portugal, think it is? think again. Their shop had a mix of the geniune and the crappy fake.

2) A few years ago the Prada shop at Pudong Airport which was a geniune Prada shop was closed after an exec from Prada popped in and found a huge number of fakes being sold in the 'geniune' store.

3) Took my friend who is an Omega nut to the Omega store in nanjing road the watch he had on was for sale at a couple of thousand pounds, under closer inspection. A fake.

4) i used to travel by train from shanghai to a small town called danyang, Danyang is famous as being the biggest town for manufacturing spectacles and optical equipment in the world, all the major designer frames are made there. Manylocal manufacturers have shops, a pair of tag heuer frames, geniune would set me back about 100aed. Again they would manufacture for the customer 'Tag', however as they had the manaufacturing tooling, design and material they would then churn out a few extra thousand pairs.

5) and final one, i work in supply chain and a few years ago was working at a metal forging plant in Thailand, this company had a deal with Calloway for manufacturing titanium golf club heads. One night of a boozy late one in the town with the american boss he told me that he sells a load of these club heads on to 'other' customers but using different material to Titanium.

There are that many good 'fakes' out there that even when you think you buying the real thing dont always bank on it.
