    thanks bRs... thats good cos I'm keen on the 2nd one, she said that the hologram sticker was scratched but would take a photo for me anyway...

    she said the 3rd one is an paris/london 08 collection and its a westminister pearl flap bag... I asked for a photo of the hologram anyway... :)

    Juicy, the first one looks off to me too. The hardware and leather don't look right and the dustbag should not be shiny. Also the card shouldn't come in plastic.

    The second one doesn't look right either as the quilting should align from top to bottom. bRs, do you agree?
    See the left side of the pic? The quilting does not align from the top flap to the bottom of the bag.

    hmmm, i don't know. the right side aligns and the left is way off which is one of the red flags. How much is she asking for? That would be an indicator as well.

    she's only asking a bit for it... but shes willing for me to inspect it first... so when i see it IRL I would know what to look out for...

    I think your bag looks like a fake I'm afraid, although I'm no expert.

    Could anyome tell me if this is a real Chanel bag please. My Grandmother recently died and this was found at the back of her wardrobe!!
    It appears to be made of lovely thick soft leather, with suede on the inner.
    The Chanel logo is on all zips (Chanel on one side, logo on the other). There is a serial number: 0973628 PTA1519426.
    It is the same size as a 2.55 bag but has a different flap style.
    I've attached some photos - please let me know if more would help
    Thanks, Pinda

    NB: the first photo makes the flap look lop-sided but it is actually flush with the pattern of the fabric-its just the way it was sitting at the time.

    Sorry Juicy none of those Chanels look right to me. The quality of the white doesn't look very good. The first one is fake. The third one I'm not familiar with enough to say whether it's real or not, but I'm not positive it's authentic.

    Pinda I've never seen that style, and it looks like PVC to me, not leather.

    Thanks for the comments Lilstrlett. It is definetly leather though - feels like leather, smells like leather and does look like leather in real like. The inner is lined with suede too.
    I haven't seen this style either. I was wondering if it was a limited edition take on a 2.55 (chance would be a fine thing!!).
    I contacted one of the Chanel boutique shops in London - the reply I got was: "Its not in our current collection" - so very helpful!!

    It does look a little crooked, but it is hard to tell if maybe the bag is sitting funny and it just looks that way or if it really is crooked. That's why I asked for more pictures.

    ^^^Thanks ladies, the seller emailed me and said that her friend who knows a fair bit about chanel said the bag might be fake, so I'm ruling out the bag and sticking to LVs.... thanks for your help though!!!

    Hi. I am new to this forum. I have been searching for an inexpensive chanel bag for a while now. I just found this website with cheap chanel bags. I was wondering if someone could authenticate this bag for me? Thank you very much!

    Fake. Chanel wouldn't have tags like that on it.

    What website did you find?
