Have you bought a Parajumpers and want to verify the authenticity?www.parajumpersstopfakes.com
Despite PARAJUMPERS being a relatively young brand, too many are the fake products that are being sold on the market. Parajumpers is on the front line in the battle to defend the authenticity of its brand and its identity, and, most important, to protect the consumer; in fact, counterfeit products are not only illegal, but can be dangerous for people wearing them, because of non-sanitized down, fabrics that can be colored with toxic substances, and, generally speaking, jackets that don't offer the right protection from cold weather.
Additionally, the production of counterfeit goods often supports illegal activities such as child labour, unsafe working conditions and organized crime.
HOW CAN YOU SPOT A FAKE?
At first glance, fakes can look very similar to the originals, but an expert eye will soon detect small differences like different fabric (very likely with no water-repellency treatment), different type of fur (fakes often have a spotted fur), missing details like the rubber around the buttons, and, most important, they are missing the official barcode that identifies original Parajumpers garments.
THE PARAJUMPERS SERIAL NUMBER
It is simple: you cannot be sure that you're buying an original, if you don't see this barcode on the tag.
This is a common serial number, but it is unique, and makes your garment unique, too; nevertheless, it allows us to see if it was actually produced in our factories.
Counterfeits usually don't have this number, or might have an invalid one.
Therefore, always ask for this code when you're buying a Parajumpers piece, and we recommend you beware of new garments that do not show it.
WHERE AND HOW ARE COUNTERFEITS SOLD?
Most of these counterfeit products are sold on the internet, through hundreds of websites that claim to be official retailers or outlets, and that sometimes can look very similar to our official website www.parajumpers.it
If it's a fake that you're buying on the internet, the item would be shipped directly from China (while we only ship from Italy).
How to recognize a fake website:
- If the website contains the word "Parajumpers" in the domain (the only official website is www.parajumpers.it)
- If the price is significantly lower than our retail price on www.parajumpers.it
- If the website offers many styles that are not part of the latest collection, and therefore no longer available on www.parajumpers.it
