Every item that comes into our store is handpicked and thoroughly inspected to ensure its authenticity.  We stand behind each and every piece of merchandise that makes it online and into our brick and mortar store. The sale of counterfeit merchandise is a federal crime and carries with it severe penalties. At Michael’s, our business is built on its outstanding reputation of integrity and honesty.
We will never knowingly sell any counterfeit merchandise.
  • Craftsmanship

    The authenticity often lies in the stitching pattern, the brand stamp or logo and the placement of the serial numbers. Every designer has a specific standard that they adhere to without compromise. Our close examination process will quickly reveal the imposters.

  • Materials

    You can't fake the real stuff. With over 65 years of experience, our team has encountered every type of material imaginable. In some instances only a trained eye that has literally seen several thousand examples can recognize the difference.

  • Knowledge

    Our seasoned merchandisers attend training in authenticating luxury apparel, and we have strong relationships with the top design houses for items that may need additional verification. That, coupled with our vast history, creates an unmatched level of expertise in authentication.
