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

    Thank you!

    Is there ANY possible way that it could have come from an Outlet? We have one close and that is where she claims it was purchased.
    I am an admin on the site that she is trying to sell it on and want to make sure I give her the correct info on why I think it's fake when
    I go to delete her post, so can you give me some reasons? Like I said...I no nothing about Coach since I've never owned one.

    The only thing I could think of what the fact that the C's were on the inside and outside....but again...I'm a Coach dummy....lol

    There is no way it came from a Coach Factory store. The bag appears to be a sad attempt at a Coach Op Art Sabrina. There are several things that are a dead giveaway, but I suppose most obvious in those pictures is the print lining. This style has a solid lining. The Coach plaque on the front looks really weird and this style would not come with a metal Coach hang tag like that. There are other things wrong with it, but those are the most obvious. Depending on the serial number, she could have called the store and they told them it was a real number. Fakes have numbers in them all the time and they often copy them from real bags to make them more convincing. But like I said, I don't need to look at the creed patch to know this one is fake.

    Also, i have the same bag with sequins and this bag is ridiculously off. Where the bottom joint is, the Op-art c's line up...they are not off sync like this bag AND my lining is solid AND the coach logo looks different AND the hardware color is off..... This is a china town bag!

    You don't see it as often anymore, but there are some solid leather bags with a C print lining. Is this a top handle pouch? It looks small in the picture.

    Default Check Coach bag authenticity, name and date

    Hello! I am brand new to this forum as I have just purchased what might possibly be my first Coach bag. I purchased it from Goodwill for only $20, in my opinion a steal whether or not it's an authentic Coach! Please assist me in figuring out its authenticity, as well as determining the possible bag name and manufacture date. I have provided pictures of all parts of the bag. I have just found two listings on eBay for this same bag, called the Lexington, except those two are made in Italy, and the lining has a lozenge design. This is just for my own use. I plan on cleaning and moisturizing the leather to make it look its best. Thanks in advance for any assistance!


    • Leather bag either black or dark gray in color (needs to be cleaned/moisturized)
    • COACH NEW YORK stamped on outside
    • Hang tag with COACH stamped into both sides of leather
    • Solid fabric lining
    • Two zipper pockets inside, one on each side
    • Creed stamped into leather patch sewn onto lining:
      "THIS IS A COACH BAG. IT WAS
      HANDCRAFTED IN THE UNITED
      STATES OF COMPLETELY NATURAL
      GLOVE-TANNED COWHIDE. THE
      VARIATIONS IN THE GRAIN ARE
      CHARACTERISTIC OF NATURAL
      FULL-GRAIN LEATHER.
      No. K3H 4181"

    The style is right although it originally would have had that Logo lining. However this was probably the last year for that Coach plant and for Coach bags to be made in the US before being completely transferred to China so it's possible they took a few short cuts, or that that bag was made for the Outlets since the Lexington line had pretty much been discontinued by then. I'm not 100 percent sure that it's real but it could be, the creed is a bit strange.

    No, fake purses don't always have C linings. There are a ton of them that do but there were also many genuine bags from the early to mid-2000s that had high-quality woven jacquard C-pattern linings, and they were being made as late as 2007.

    We still need to see more photos but the lining in yours resembles the kind used in genuine bags. It will usually have a bit of a shimmer, and the Cs are woven differently than the rest of the fabric so that the light catches and shows them differently than the background fabric. Sometimes they'll look like a slightly different shade or color too depending on the light.

    Most of the time (not always!) the cheaper the fabric looks the more likely that it's fake. Printed Cs are fake 95 percent of the time, whether they're the old-style Signature Cs or the newer Op Art style. And shimmer or no, any handbag lined with a shiny MINI-C pattern usually in gold, black or brown will always be fake. Mini-C lining wasn't used in purses.

    Default Is my Coach Bag Real?

    I bought this bag of craigslist. When I first saw it I analyzed it and thought it was real, since I watched a few youtube videos how to tell if they are fake.

    The only thing I noticed after seeing it more closely at home, that the bottom C's don't align. Do you guys think this bag is real or fake?

    This bags serial number is No. B1098-f14874

    This is a diaper bag from a factory outlet. Your pictures are pretty blurry, but I don't see anything that would be of concern (clearer pics would help). Coach has gotten... how should I say this?... lazy when it comes to the bottom of the bags in recent years. The front and back (most visible areas) will be aligned nicely, but the piece on the bottom will often be off center.

    Do you have a clear pic of the creed patch?
