The only question when shopping resale is, “Is it authentic?” . With the booming resale market, taking someones word for it is no longer an option.
Education is the first step. Unless you purchase an item from the brand itself, there will always be a question about the authenticity so again, education is key and the more you know, the safer you will be shopping resale.
I’ve collected the best information I could on the biggest brands and how to authenticate them. You’ll learn what red flags to look out for, what date codes and serial numbers make sense and which ones don’t and so much more.
As always, shop from reputable sellers!
There are several authentication companies that can help you before you purchase, with online listings and more. For a complete list, click below!
