I must say, the overall quality of knock-offs in Bangkok, or at least in the Patpong area, has dropped greatly in every area – bags, watches, clothes. There were a couple of decent items, as well as some nice “originals” (Prada greatcoats and Jaeger-styled IWC watches), but the rest of it was shit. We were all very unimpressed.
The most recent knock-off shopping I’ve gone besides Thailand was in Korea, and the quality of the stuff there was world-class, with very hagglable prices.

  1. I agree, being the one who felt responsible to find Auntie Betty a nice knockoff…and who couldn’t! It was very frustrating seeing tons of the SOS everywhere, even in the “hidden” back rooms where “special” (expensive grade “C”) imitations were displayed. Sorry Betty!
