I’m penning this information to help fellow eBayer’s identify counterfeit Salvatore Ferragamo belts. I’ve observed that counterfeiters from all around the world are producing better high quality replicas by focusing their energies on the small details. With higher replicas, eBay deal seekers at the moment are at the next risk of buying a knock off.
I am absolutely aware that this guide would possibly get in the wrong arms, however am nonetheless publishing this guide because I wished there was some form of reference for me to determine between actual and faux Ferragamo belts. So instead of telling you exactly what to look for, I have used footage of authenitc and pretend belts aspect by side that clearly show the shortcomings of the fakes; I will even provide you with pointers on the place to look so you can see these shortcomings. I will not describe the details of the flaw.
Once more, please use this guide as a reference only and not as a sole means of verifying the authenticity of goods. I take no accountability on how you use this guide. This information cannot be referenced in any claim (of any sort).
If you want this guide, please vote for me. If you discover any flaws please share them, if you want something please tell me, in case you assume I need to alter something please inform me.
So let’s get began :
1. Overview of all belt buckles being reviewed:
Within the above picture the buckle on top of the white bag is faux. The opposite three are real.
Things to look for:
- Tail of the “o” at the end of Ferragamo (look at the images see the main points I am leaving out) (tail leaving the highest = good || tail leaving in the middle of the “o” or at the bottom or the “o” = unhealthy)
- Measurement of “__Ferragamo__” engraving with relation to the place and dimension of object (“__ ” means empty space)
2a. It is all the time centered to the flat portion of the plate (have a look at the photographs see the main points I’m leaving out)
3. Have a look at which components of the buckle are shinny (chrome end) or dull (matte end or brushed nickel end)
- Notice what’s engraved on the highest facet of the teeth flap (clean or engraving)
- Discover the kind of teeth getting used (square or pointy) (half the holds the buckle to the belt)
- Kind of screw being used (this is not a big give away – minor element)
- Serial numbers underneath teeth plate (not all belts have to have this, but the newer ones do)
- Type of pin (the half that holds the belt in the outlet) being used (this isn’t an enormous give away – minor detail) (Totally different variations)
