The clasp on genuine Pandora bracelets should be approximately the same size as the charms. There should be an inscription on the front of the clasp that says "Pandora" with a crown on top of the "O".

Pandora charms have an engraving of the brand's name and a label indicating the metal from which they are made. Murano charms should not have chips, cracks, or air bubbles inside.

The back pockets of the original jeans should have a two-line pattern that resembles an eagle's beak.

All Levi's jeans have a soft leather patch on the back of the waist above the right pocket. The patch must have the Levi's logo and logo and indicate the jeans size and model number. There should also be an image of drivers trying to rip jeans.

The small Levi's label on the right back pocket of the jeans is usually red, but it can also be a different color, depending on the model. The tab should have the brand name and sometimes a registration mark: ®.

The original buttons will always be adorned with "Levi Strauss" on the front and there will be a number stamped on the back. The screws should also have the brand name on the outside and the model number on the inside.

This Lacoste alligator must be very detailed. You should be able to see his eyes, his teeth, his feet, and his red jaw. The body of the crocodile should be light green with the tail parallel to the back.

On the back of the polo neck (inside the shirt), there should be a white label with the logo and a red number indicating the size. In men's models, the size is indicated by one number and in women's models there must be two.

Fine details can reveal a fake Lacoste polo shirt. For original Lacoste clothing, the manufacturer uses two-hole mother-of-pearl buttons without inscriptions. Replica manufacturers often forget about this and use 4-hole buttons.

There are small cuts about 0.4 inches deep at the bottom of men's polo shirts. The female models do not have cuts.

Do you buy branded clothes or prefer cheaper alternatives? What is more important to you: the price of the product or its quality?
