Is a product genuine luxury if the Chinese can fake it?
« on: December 13, 2017, 10:35:29 AM »
There are many products today that the real and the fake not only look alike but share the same function and durability.  Does this mean that the original product is not a true luxury and you pay mainly for marketing?

Branded products are mostly just for bragging rights anyway.

I don't entirely believe the fake products are the same. One time I bought a pair of fake coach sandals. Lasted less than a couple of months.

the Chinese are getting smart, they increase the price to make you think the product is high quality when it's just a perceptual change. I don't trust any Chinese products. They fool me once, they won't get any more business from me.

So the Chinese basically didn´t improve their fake product but spent more yuans on marketing instead.  Clever devils.
