I’m writing this guide to help fellow eBayer’s identify counterfeit Salvatore Ferragamo belts. I’ve seen that counterfeiters from everywhere in the world are producing higher high quality replicas by focusing their energies on the small details. With better replicas, eBay deal seekers at the moment are at the next threat of buying a knock off.
I am fully aware that this guide may get in the mistaken fingers, but am nonetheless publishing this guide because I wished there was some type of reference for me to find out between real and fake Ferragamo belts. So as a substitute of telling you precisely what to look for, I have used footage of authenitc and faux belts aspect by side that clearly show the shortcomings of the fakes; I may even give you pointers on where to look so you can see these shortcomings. I can’t describe the details of the flaw.
Again, please use this guide as a reference only and never as a sole technique of verifying the authenticity of products. I take no accountability on how you use this guide. This guide cannot be referenced in any claim (of any sort).
If you want this guide, please vote for me. If you find any flaws please share them, if you like something please tell me, in case you think I need to change something please tell me.
So let’s get started :
1. Overview of all belt buckles being reviewed:
In the above image the buckle on high of the white bag is fake. The other three are real.
Things to search for:
- Tail of the “o” at the end of Ferragamo (look at the photographs see the details I am leaving out) (tail leaving the highest = good || tail leaving in the course of the “o” or at the underside or the “o” = bad)
- Dimension of “__Ferragamo__” engraving with relation to the place and size of object (“__ ” means empty space)
2a. It is all the time centered to the flat portion of the plate (have a look at the pictures see the small print I am leaving out)
3. Take a look at which elements of the buckle are shinny (chrome finish) or dull (matte end or brushed nickel end)
- Notice what is engraved on the top facet of the teeth flap (blank or engraving)
- Notice the kind of teeth getting used (sq. Claudia_Schiffer or pointy) (part the holds the buckle to the belt)
- Type of screw being used (this is not an enormous give away – minor detail)
- Serial numbers underneath teeth plate (not all belts should have this, but the newer ones do)
- Kind of pin (the half that holds the belt in the hole) being used (this isn’t a giant give away – minor element) (Completely different variations)
