THE WIRE HANGER not only resales new designer goods but pre-worn goods as well.  No matter where they come from or condition they are in, the process of determining authenticity  is always the same.  We currently authenticate using two methods.  

Authenticity Expert

Reviewing the item in person is the best way to see, feel, and understand the piece in front of us.  Our experts are highly qualified authenticators in the resale industry.   Whether it is a handbag, clothing, shoes or an accessory item, the authentication of every piece is reviewed and inspected to ensure that its details meet with the manufacturers established standards of quality in: stamping, stitching, hardware, authenticity stamps, date codes, serial number (where applicable), materials and craftsmanship. With training and due diligence, we can easily detect fakes.  


We’ve partnered with Entrupy to ensure designer goods we cannot authenticate in house get a second stamp of approval.  Entrupy is a New York based company focusing on authenticity and traceability.  Entrupy certifies the authenticity of luxury goods using an objective, scientifically-proven approach that better protects buyers and sellers of frequently-counterfeited, high-value items. Within seconds, the item is either certified as Authentic or classified as Unidentified. Entrupy’s algorithms learn with each new data point, continuously improving and adapting to the changing world of luxury goods.


We know shopping resale can be scary especially with how popular counterfeit designer purchases has increased in the past years.  THE WIRE HANGER take several measures to ensure you are getting an authentic piece every time. We guarantee the authenticity of every item we sell or 100% of your money back.
