Macklemore

Rocks Louis Bag

We Call That Getting Tricked By a Business

1/3/2014 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Macklemore turned his back on the thrift shop thing yesterday  -- rocking what looks like a ridiculously expensive Louis Vuitton bag at JFK.

Ironic, Mack rails against designers in his famous song, rapping about how designer labels are a massive waste of money -- "Limited edition, let's do some simple addition / Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant bitch (sh*t) / I call that getting swindled and pimped (sh*t) / I call that getting tricked by a business."

We can't verify from the picture that the bag is authentic, but we did some Googling and it looks exactly like Louis' Keepall Bandouliere bag, which retails for $1,770.

So we gotta ask ...

I have purchased two Louis Vuitton bags from the thrift store in my area. One was worn, the other almost new the vachetta leather was had not started to darken. I took them to a Louis store and both were authenticated as real. Do not say you can't buy LV at the thrift store. I have shopped thrift stores for years; you would be surprised what people give away!

He doesn't see the point in paying loads a money on this stuff when he could get thrift store bargains. He probably got it as swag from the company. If that's the case, what's the problem?

....sometimes, you come across LV and other high-namebrands at Goodwill....you just gotta be lucky as Hell with timing to score.

But let's be honest...that's new from the store. Screw it, he has money now. The message is still worthy.

For everybody who thinks this bag is fake, it's 100% real. I'm a very avid Louis Vuitton collector. This is called Monogram Macassar, which is why the straps of real leather are brown. They are treated. Anyways, anybody who's that successful should be able to spoil themselves every once in a while.

i hate it when you have all these miles and fly a lot, and then some 'i fly once every ten years' bozo shows up with all this luggage, and is totally annoying and gets all up in everyone's way, and block the whole aisle. it happens every time i fly. they usually look just like this...

It could have been a gift. I got a Coach bag for Christmas I would have never purchased for myself.

Chances that he actually paid for that bag, real or almost real, are next to nothing. It was likely a gift as most celebrity goodies are.
