Ok, First and foremost
I decided to post this guide because i'm SICK AND TIRED of seeing soooooo many FAKE AND DISGUSTING LOOKING coogi sweaters on ebay!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ALREADY!
I'M ABOUT TO MAKE ALOT OF PEOPLE MAD AFTER THIS BUT GUESS WHAT...
I REALLY COULD CARE LESS!
I come from the era of the Mid-90's, When wearing a Coogi sweater would give you the utmost respect! Coogi is a way of living, not just a style. Nor is it just a sweater with a bunch of colors and designs on it. Get your mind right! keep it real! Stop buying these FAKE sweaters on eBay
If your gonna do it, then do it BIG. Don't fake it till you make it
NOW......Let's get into what you really came to see!
How do I spot a fake??????
#1. NO COOGI SWEATER IS ALIKE! - That's what makes them so unique. The ONLY time that you will see one sweater resemble another ( and I mean exact match ) is if one is a V-neck button up sweater and the other is a regular sweater. Exact colors and stiching but DIFFERENT sweater style, ( short sleeve sweater, v-neck sweater, sewater vest, collared sweater and ect.)
( sweater ) ( jacket )
Now you see what I mean.
#2.Check the intricate design. Coogi is known for its flawless designs and color schemes.
Your sweater should look like the two above:
NOT LIKE THIS!!!!!
.........Now come on people, this is just ridiculous!
* Note * That the collar and the sleeve should be an EXACT match to one another.
Look at the collar and sleeve on the fake compared to the OFFICIAL. Do you see the difference?
Take a closer look:
Some people actually think that they are selling real COOGI sweaters! You cant be serious right? Always remember the main things to look out for are:
The collar and sleeves, do they match? are they TOO thick or thin?
The sweaters waist: Look at the pic above @ the orange "Coogi Sweater" LOL! Check the sweaters waist band. It's TOO WIDE! The waistband is supposed to fit you snug. It's not ment to be loose!
The color scheme and design, if its too bland, too simple, looks like low-quality or just looks like a hot mess guess what....IT IS!
THE TAG!!!!!!....This is the easiest way sometimes!
Check out this screw-up!!!!!!!!!!!
COOGI NEVER AND I REPEAT NEVER MADE A TAG LIKE THIS!
THIS IS HOW THE TAG SHOULD BE...
Now, 1st The SIZE should always be on the left. And, the tag itself is always rectangular and not a perfect square like you see on the pic just above. The tag should not be CUT PERFECTLY. It's a tag not a deck of cards!.COOGI sweaters are 100% mercerised cotton only. ( There are OLDER sweaters from the classic collection that MAY state otherwise.
Coogi Classic is alot older going back to the 80's. You will notice that the designs are older as well. There not as outlandish as the newer styles at all.
2nd, the letters in the word COOGI ARE ALWAYS COLORED AS FOLLOWS!!!!!!:
C - Yellow
O - Blue
O - Green
G - Orange
I - Red
3rd, COOGI Sweaters have weight to them. If the sweater you have is PAPER THIN, then it ain't a coogi! Sorry
4th, and last but not least:
The COOGI BASICS line was created for simple designs and color patterns. Hence the name COOGI BASICS!
They were not ment to be fly and flashy with colors coming out the ying yang, so if the sweater is too gaudy but the tag says basic then guess what...you got it, it's FULGAZY! ( that's italian for fake if you didnt know )
People, dont waste your time and money on these fake sweaters. These bozo's are making buku bucks off you because they think you dont know any better. Well now, thats all changed! It's time to invest in the real and not the ridiculous. Don't be fooled by these imitation KNOCK-OFF'S. I'm just fed up with this, thats all. In the words of the late great Notorious BIG.
" Heart throb never / black and ugly as ever / howerer, I stay coogi down to the socks! / rings and watch filled with rocks "
