Despite my preference, I would not criticise people whod go for replicas. To each his own.

There's no sense for me in getting a replica. There are good quality authentics even at the entry-level price point. To give some examples, for watches, there are sturdy and reliable Seikos at the same price as Greenhills replicas. If you want novelty, a real Sea-Gull chrono is also a better deal than a fake Omega with a Sea-Gull movement, for reasons stated over and over by previous posters. If you want the brand, a fake doesn't carry the brand.
As pointed out earlier, it may be a question of design. Say if someone really likes the way a Rolex sub looks, then no Seiko could satisfy that desire. Lucky if money is not an issue, but the reality is that it is a big issue for most people. Say another guy wants an SLP L17 leather jacket, but then he lives in the Philippines where the likelihood that hed be able to wear an authentic $4000 jacket is almost nil, probably only during a few says in January. It may not make sense to him to invest in one. In this case, a replica made from the same leather could prove to be a more sensible choice rather than buy a cheap authentic but aesthetically ugly jacket. The cool thing is that replicas are getting better. And for as long as you dont parade them as authentics and would readily admit them as copies when outed, then I dont see the point why anyone would get offended.

There are some products na 'brand' name na lang ang binabayaran kaya pricey. But then the quality is the same as with replicas. (Because sometimes they are OEM from the same factory)
It would only be good to buy authentic stuff from manufacturers that create their own technology on their products. Example: phones, laptops, electronic gadgets
