QUALITY HALLMARKS OF SHOES: $100 shoes 1. Faux Stitching. It's simply glued and it's there merely decorative to make it look like a more expensive shoe but it's all glue. 2. Welt at the bottom. That is probably just a blake stitch or a blake rapid stitch. A composite material that is meant to look like leather. 3. Execution. More often than not, the stitching that you see at the top of the shoe is just injection molded so it's not a real stitch and it's simply meant to be deceitful. 4. Inferior Leather. Stiffer leather that is sanded and pigmented with dye to hide all the flaws. It creases very easily when you walk in it and will age very poorly. 5. Unrefined lasts. They can be a little chunky, have kind of a boxy toe, and overall wide so they fit every kind of foot. 6. Low quality interior. Manufacturers put all kinds of foam inside to make it feel nice and soft to the foot. The foam wears out quite quickly. 7. No color variations. You get black, brown, or tan, and that's about it! $200-$400 shoes 1. Blake construction and the blake rapid. These are also sewn but less expensive than goodyear welted. The advantage of blake construction is that you get a thinner sole that is softer. The disadvantage is that when you're outside, and it's wet, and it rains a lot, your feet may get wet. Also, the lack of cork in a blake construction shoe makes it less comfortable when you stand a lot or walk a lot. $500 shoes 1. High quality leather. Dyed all the way through. It has open pores that develop a patina over time. 2. Hand burnished finish from the factory that gets darker towards the toe. 3. Construction. In terms of construction, $500 shoes are almost exclusively goodyear welted that means, you have a welt here on the outside, and another welt that connects it in combination with the cork and sole which makes it much more comfortable to wear. 4. Heel caps and toe caps. Must be made of thermoplastic leather unlike cheaper shoes which are made of plastic. 5. Refined lasts. You also get a much better finishing in the details. 6. Variety of colors. Even if you have the nicest suits, a beautiful tie, a good shirt, and nice cuff links, cheap shoes will overall bring your outfit down. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How to Spot a Fake Designer Handbag In 7 Steps

How to choose the real designer handbag and spot a fake handbag? How to differ fake from real easily? Buying a luxury car for men: you have to be very attentive to small details and know everything about your dream handbag. That’s why we decided to create a short yet very useful guide that will teach you how to choose the real thing. TIMESTAMPS Pay attention to details 0:44 Check clasps, buttons, and zippers 1:15 Pay attention to the materials 1:49 Check tags and labels 2:15 Take a closer look at its serial number 2:41 An expensive handbag always has expensive packaging 3:03 Each brand has its very own distinct characteristics 3:25 SUMMARY - All of the stitches should be perfectly even, and there should be no loose threads or any other visual defects or imperfections. All genuine designer handbags are handmade. - Pay special attention to small things like metal clasps, buttons, zipper pulls, plates, and locks. Their quality should be perfect, and they should have a number or a name printed on them, which is another sign of quality and authenticity. - A famous brand doesn’t use rough leather. They only use fine, high-quality materials. When you touch them, you feel like you are in paradise. - Fake items often have the brand names printed in different fonts, smudgy letters, or even with misspellings. Tags and labels are always a giveaway. - The label with the number is sealed and attached in a special way, making it impossible to remove without damaging. Fake items usually have a sticker with a number that has just been glued somewhere on the surface. - An expensive designer handbag always has expensive packaging, often made of the highest-quality materials. The package your precious bag comes in should have no color defects whatsoever. - Before visiting a store, do some research on the specific attributes of the chosen brand. Remember – each brand has its very own distinct characteristics. Do you know other ways to recognize fake bags? Share your experience with us in the comments down below!
