    I looks fake to me... look at the zipper.

    I dunno ...from what I could tell, it seems to meet checkpoints I know about, such as brushed brass hardware, rounded handles where they attach to the hardware, silver zipper. A closeup of the padlock to see the size of the name font, and a few inside shots of the fabric and serial number would be helpful.

    However, a comparison of this one from net-a-porter shows it's missing the stringy thing hanging down from the handle, at least I don't see it. The proportions of the leather pieces in the front look fine, but I'm not sure about the proportion of the stitched "loop" on the side. I personally like to see larger, higher-res pics for high-dollar purchases like this, not the crappy eBay ipix. Maybe ask her if she can un-stuff it, too, so you can see the "slouch."

    There's not enough detail on the second one to tell... are you able to ask for more pics?

    Well, it looks good overall, but this bothers me. Look at the font on the label of this Paddington (I presume it's real, you can see where I got it, LOL). It doesn't look anything like the font on the one you posted. Personally, I'd stay away.

    The first (top) one looks great. I'd say that's real.

    The bottom one, who knows. What bothers me about it is that the inside serial number is printed on the finish part of the leather tab instead of the underside, as it is on the top purse. Plus, if it's the same-location serial number as the top purse, the nearby zipper is silver, not white, as it apparently is supposed to be. And I can't make out its Chloe font on the leather for anything.

    I vote yea on the first and eh on the second.

    Well, I'm baffled. This purse looks very good, but it has the same serial number/zipper color issue as the second-link purse in your other post. So maybe this varies based on bag color and year made? Because the seller certainly looks reputable, in fact, I've browsed her auctions before. I wouldn't have an issue buying from her.

    Anyone else have any thoughts? I'm no expert on any bag, my strength is simply in comparing similarities and differences.

    ETA: I forgot to mention, you probably know about the Clothes and Accessories (or something like that) forum on eBay? It's one of their discussion groups. I'd post this auction there and see what they say. Then report back. :)

    BRS, so would that make the blue one she posted authentic? Looks the same.
