    Default Re: Coach Handbag: Please help authenticate purse!

    i have a large signature stripe and comparing my bag with the one you pruchased jojo i've found a few discrepancies. to my knowledge, this type of bag is reversible, and yours has some solid red inside (therefore not reversible). also as you've pointed out, the bottom isn't centered. my bottom is centered and lines up to the front and back panels. the rivets on the handles are smaller. my handles also lack those grips at the top. when i looked up the serial number, it didn't show up on the coach website.

    BUT you can also come up with reasons why this could still possibly be authentic. its a zip-top closure, mine isnt, so maybe those arent reversible. also, it says its from a factory outlet. i dont shop at the outlets, so maybe that can be an excuse to why the bottom panel is off center. (maybe because its irregular).

    hopefully someone is knowledgeable about outlet products and knows if they sell irregular items or not.

    basically ive gotten you nowhere. goodluck. =/

    I looked at them at the Coach outlet and they had mismatched bottoms as well. Notice the bullseye on the creed?

    I agree. They could have simply taken a pic at the Coach outlet store. I would be wary since it is possible that they are trying a sort of bait and switch kind of thing. I mean, why would they have a picture of a fake bag and then send a picture of authentic bags at the outlet.

    They are both different styles. The newer ones come with the zipper like hers. They had the reversible ones at the outlet last year, I believe they are from Fall 2007 if I am not mistaken. I got my reversible at the boutique on September 2007 I think. The bottoms on those ones are perfectly matched unlike the newer ones.

    Thank you for your quick answer, btw, very helpful!
    Yeah, the first pictured purse is fake with a supper dupper fake charm attached.

    I agree with Zombiegirl and boysRsmelly, tell your sister to stay away from that seller. First of all that picture was clearly taken from an outlet. And mixing pictures of authentic and fake purse is only to confuse the buyer, much more when they use stolen pictures, to me a picture from the outlet is a stole picture.

    Yes, I saw white satin bags as well, Saturday at Coach. They sent me a new dustbag last week since they didn't send mine back with my repair and it was the brown satin. So I guess they are using both colors maybe depending on the styles/colors?

    Yes it is authentic. I have the same bag in the same color. The number on the Coach Creed shows up on the Drill down also.http://www.coach.com/assets/product_...n1/5031_d1.jpg
