    Default Re: Coach Handbag: Please help authenticate purse! (Part 2)

    Okay, here's the deal. I haven't seen or heard of this style before. That doesn't mean anything though. What I find interesting is the clip on the strap. It isn't the typical dog leash style clip you see on most Coach bags. That being said, this is a suede bag. The creed wording matches that of other suede bags. It also has the looped zipper pull like most suede bags and the signature lining is consistent with a lot of other suede styles. I'm not 100% certain, but I would think it is more likely an authentic item. Plain suede bags like this aren't something that is normally faked. I can keep looking around though.

    I really appreciate your response. I am starting to believe it is real also after talking with someone who sells coach bags. I was going to bring it to them, but I described it well enough that they thought it was real too.

    I would hate to list it on eBay, someone buy it, and then find out it is fake!

    thanks again,

    moviemanmarty

    In recent years, Coach has gotten a little more laid back when it comes to the pattern and the bottom of the bag. And the bullseye means it was sold at an outlet. You never posted detailed pics of the bag for us to look at. So if you're referring to what I told you before, I never said it was authentic or not.

    The creed patch looks fine. And yes, the C's don't have to match perfect on the sides/bottom. Like I said, Coach has gotten a little laid back about that in recent years. A lot of the time, they have just been lining the pattern up on the front and back. They worry less about the less visible areas.

    There's nothing wrong with the serial number, it's just an older one. Don't ever use current design details to try and authenticate Coaches more than a year or two old. The details on Coaches change constantly and what was normal a year ago may be very different now.

    And you should really let the experts at this forum or at Ebays forums look at what you're selling before you list it to be sure it's genuine. There are a LOT of fakes that can't be spotted by depending on current styles or some useless and mostly wrong "guide" you find on the internet.

    The style you're asking about is from the 2001 Amanda line but I don't have an exact name for it, my best guess would be Amanda Suede Hobo, style 6959.

    This is good information, I hope moviemanmarty takes your advice. The bag is different from what I am used to seeing, but it isn't setting off any red flags. I am curious though, did all of this Amanda line have the clips like the one seen on this bag? It's curious since this is something different. I know Coach does change stuff up a lot though, so it wouldn't surprise me really.

    Yes, all the Amandas, and there weren't many of them, all had the same clips. I don't have a scanner but the Amandas were in the "Fall Begins" 2001 catalog and show those same clips. Coach tried a lot of different things when they were changing production over to China starting in 2000, and not all of them stuck.

    When they're bringing out new lines especially, they'll try to tweak commonly-used bits and pieces to give them an updated feel, like the hardware on the new bags like the Kristins and New Willises with the redesigned clips and turnlocks. With Coach, nothing lasts forever!

    Just to comment on a sore subject - YKK zippers NEVER EVER prove that a Coach is genuine. And if a bag doesn't have them, that DOESN'T mean that it's fake.

    Please read Salearea's Guides posted at Ebay, especially the ones about YKK zippers and authenticity guides, they're the only accurate ones you'll find on those subjects AFAIK. And yes, I'm biased:
