There are a lot of people selling new/2nd hand/genuine/fake Gucci bags at a much lower price than the SG Gucci stores. Caveat emptor HERE
I get to know this when my daughter bought a bunch of Coach/Gucci bags from USA factory outlets stores which sell at 50% or lower than the branded flagship stores. The designs are not really the latest but at such a large discount, she is able to make good profit selling them at 20% below SG street price.
Actually the requested info is for my friend. This afternoon, I accompanied him to the Gucci boutique at Ngee Ann City and he has purchased that bag which costs over $1200 - mainly made of fabric material.
The first "new" bag passed to us for inspection has a slight "loose thread" defect and another piece was handed to us with no questions asked.
I was checking out a small Gucci pouch on display and saw that the logo was slightly tilted to one side. Maybe not a big deal to some people but workmanship not acceptable to me given that they are "premium" items. I am a little surprised.
Would I buy a branded bag? Definitely not for me as I find that the cheaper bags are not necessarily lesser in workmanship and material compared to the "premium" brands.
Furthermore I cannot agree to the high price of such bags - not as if they are gold plated.
Lucky my wife do not have taste for such brands ... ...
agree with you.. there are many sprees or mass order of bags overseas .. especially with the all time US dollar being low.. many times im tempted to get one for my SO but she's not into too branded and expensive bags..
CS Tan is correct .. in the US and other Euro countries, out of style or last season bags do sell cheaply there compared to here in singapore, if you see how they sell it, its like how you see normal malls having a crazy sale
*PS* dont ever bring fake products over to sell at shops here , you can claim its a gift and you ddint know blah blah but the shop will call police for counterfeit.
in US/Euro countries, they can tell if its original or fake by its RFID tag .. thats what i was told ..
