Authentication Process

The Closet Trading Co. has specialized in authenticating luxury apparel and accessories since 2003. With over thirty years of combined experience, our expert buyers inspect each luxury piece before it is accepted on consignment. Determining the authenticity of an item is a mix of art and science. Criteria such as stampings, symmetry, stitching, hardware markings, as well as overall workmanship and materials are inspected and determined to be consistent with the manufacturer's established standards of quality. If applicable, manufacturer date codes, serial numbers and additional documentation are verified for consistency. Lastly, the item is compared to on-hand authentic items for reference.

The Closet Trading Co acknowledges that it is illegal to buy or sell counterfeit goods and is dedicated to ensuring the authenticity of all items. The Closet Trading Co. will never knowingly sell counterfeit merchandise.
