Referred to as “Reon reps”, Reondistrict is an e-commerce site selling high-end, designer replica clothes. And unlike other Chinese stores, it’s easy to use and open to everyone.
Finding quality, and unique, fake versions of your favorite clothing brand can be tricky. Browsing the Chinese store Taobao is often time consuming (unless you use China Haul of course) and requires you to be familiar with the stores. And then there’s sites like Boostmaster Lin or “Nina”, which requires you to order through the chat network WeChat.
Reondistrict is different. All you need to do is visit the site, sign-up and log-in to browse the catalogue – Filled with high-end copy-copy brands. While the brand names aren’t named, you can easily guess what is what. The store actually exists in the real world as well. Sometimes referred to as “Puerhomme” (The Korean version of the site is at puerhomme.co.kr) the Reondistrict store is located in Seoul, where copyright laws aren’t as strict.
They do not carry perfect 1:1 copies of the retail clothes. As one Reddit user points out when buying the Saint Laurent Teddy jacket, which is known to be difficult to replicate, it’s described as “the wool isn’t as good as retail and I can tell from that instantly,” and “to be passable at least in my opinion”. On the other hand, the Saint Laurent t-shirts are of much higher quality than the average Taobao seller’s.
But they prices are high, compared to other stores. While a $500 version of a leather jacket, which costs around $5 000 retail, isn’t too bad, a regular t-shirt can easily fetch up to $50 on Reondistrict.
But unless you want to dig deep into Reddit posts, take chances on Taobao or even go the Ali Express way, Reondistrict is a good choice. While you might find a better deal on Taobao, Reon has a good overall quality at a decent price. And without the hassle.
- It’s a well known store, so you are less likely to get ripped off.
- Custom service, with a friendly return policy.
- High-quality copies since they use materials close to the retail version.
- They use real leather.
- Taking in account that these are fake clothes – They are expensive.
- Just because they are expensive, doesn’t mean the quality is consistent. There are no guarantees.
- They don’t come with the original tags.
- Sizing is off, and you might need to size up or down.
Even if the site is easy to browse and order from, and with pretty high-quality fakes, the prices are keeping it from being a store to really recommend.
