    The best thing to do is shop at high quality stores, not just expensive trendy names and learn what real quality looks and feels like. Then you will be able to go to a discount store and know if what you are getting is good quality or not. I've noticed most people have no ability to know what is high quality or not simply because they only shop stores with cheap products and they have no experience with good quality.

    was the only one that saw the bag on the video and was able to guess which one was more expensive right away?

    J. Crew Factory is NOT the same as J. Crew. It's a completely different banner.

    "More higher quality" lol
    And … hmmmm
    You get what you deserve, quality-wise. Why is fashion more important to people than the poor people trapped into making this rubbish? Sweatshops have you fooled? The people making this crap don't get a living wage. Wake up

    In this day and age, everything is far too expensive and made so cheaply! I don't care where you buy, it's always such garbage.

    I worked for Coach (leather goods company). I can tell you for a fact that when you're shopping at an outlet you are buying the name, and when you're shopping at a full-priced store you are buying quality. Shopping at a Coach outlet you can tell an item was specifically manufactured for "factory"/outlet stores if the item number on the tag or inside the purse starts with an F (the F is followed by 5 or so numbers). In a purse you'll find this number on the leather authenticity patch. It'll look something like F89135. So thats a tip for thrifters. No F = A+ quality.
    Also, this doesn't mean all companies make cheaper versions of their product to sell at outlets. When going in an outlet simply ask the sales person if the items were manufactured specifically for outlet. You'll find some that don't, so you're actually getting a good deal. An example is Le Cruset outlet store, they'll say some items did not pass QC but most are just phased out colors.

    I shop second hand for purses and clothes. Sometimes they still have the new tags attached and we can see that I pay pennys on the dollar. I never pay more than I need to and being fully aware of marketing strategies I avoid large clothing chains, outlets and department stores whenever possible. People think our income is double, it's my little secret.

    I call b***** what is this Tim brainwashes into spending $250 for that purse that you can only tell that it's not retail is by inspecting the zipper and making sure that there's only one diamond on it instead of two diamonds really. In your whole pitch for me over paying for this crap is that if you take care of it properly it'll last longer I call b***** on that too if you take care of anything it will last longer period….

    Honestly you’re better off going to a regular store when they have sales and use a coupon. A lot of outlets don’t honor coupons/specials bc they say the stuff is already cheap but it’s not

    I disagree when it comes to Winners. I've been shopping at Winners for many years and being a cost conscious person with manufacturing background, I use the comparative price as a reference. It is a retail price and not a discounted price. I have an idea how much the product is worth based on quality. Ideally I purchase the product when first arrived brand new with all tags and I try on and check for defects. If it meets my requirement and the price is right, I'll buy the product. I find Winners has fair pricing, Return policy and great customer service. I've found many favorites from Winners and will continue to shop there.💗

    I have shopped at Winners for over 20 years and have only occassionally had problems with the quality of items I have bought. I have also bought high end products that have fallen apart from retail stores quite quickly. Retail doesn't necessarily mean high quality. I always google retail prices in Winners and their compare prices are almost always much lower than the retail price. And when they had the people compare prices on the computer with the compare prices, most were accurate and a lot they couldn't find the item to compare the price. The whole thing about Winners was ridiculous and not well done. And that woman practically crying over $30 pants. Get over it! I bought a $25 pair of jeans from Winners 10 years ago that still look great because I take care of my clothes. Someone needs a life! I will continue to shop at Winners (and no, I do not work for Winners).

    @wannamakeup I thought you'd find this interesting.

    I feel like outlets should just be clearance stores, that's what people are expecting and you could find last years crap for a discount. There would be a lot less waste.

    They’re not the same people. Outlets are marked up cheap quality stuff! You’re better off going to the retail store and shopping their sale.

    I feel bad for the employees working at the corporate building. In reality all big companies lie and scam to make more money. Investors put big time pressure on these huge companies. In real life you take the good of a company with the bad. You're just at work to pay your bills. You can't answer for the choices your company makes as a unit. Anyway, if being scammed bothers you, try shopping at mom and pop places. They can't afford bad publicity or a lawsuit like winners can.

    I'd rather buy designers' samples or thrift secondhand luxury than dealing with outlet knockoffs.

    I went to a Coach outlet and asked and the sales associate at the outlet told me that the outlet merchandise was not the same quality as the retail store. She was very honest.

    Wow. I never knew that Canadian outlets also play dirty tricks.
