    Default Coach Legacy Leather Shoulder Bag in Whiskey - Changes for 2008 or fake?

    One of my favorite Coach bags is the Legacy Leather Shoulder bag. The leather is thick and sumptuous, the hardware substantial and rich, and the overall look is I one that I love immensely. After hearing about how these bags were selling out left and right in the Coach outlets and seeing how they were snapped up on Ebay with a quickness, I went ahead and purchased one for myself. It looks identical to the bag shown in this listing: Coach Legacy Leather Shoulder Bag in Whiskey - eBay (item 170273604253 end time Oct-29-08 18:41:43 PDT) with richly colored, almost Cognac leather and the vibrant multicolor Legacy lining. I have always wanted to buy another for a friend and I was dismayed that I could not find any for sale. Lo and behold, a plethora of similar, nearly identical bags popped up on Ebay by sellers with excellent feedback. I thought to myself, these bags can't be fake! Just look at that excellent feedback. Yet at the same time, I wondered to myself what was going on with the small and minute changes in the bag, namely the fact that the beautiful Legacy linign was gone and replaced with a bland monogram print. Additionally, the leather looks different on this bag...IMO it almost looks...cheaper...in a way. The new version I am referring to is here: NWT COACH LEGACY LEATHER SHOULDER BAG WHISKEY 12868 - eBay (item 220297197092 end time Oct-25-08 10:15:49 PDT)

    BUT...by no means am I a Coach expert. I know next to nothing about the brand. So I ask the true Coachie aficionados here: Is this an all new version of the Legacy leather shoulder bag or has the Legacy line been faked to the point where I have been fooled!? LOL, any thoughts are appreciated.

    Yeah, that second link is a fake! The leather doesn't look like it has that softness to it. It almost looks too shiny. The first link that you posted is definitely authentic. The Legacy line has been faked. That's too bad too. It's such a great bag.

    I don't know maybe they did change the lining on the inside to the signature cc's. The thing I don't get is that when you view some of these they have different style numbers. Like the two links that you posted...they both have different style numbers. Like you said, the Legacy is being offered by sellers that have great feedback. Maybe they're not fake and Coach is doing something different.

    ^I know what you mean Seredipity. it confuses me because of the differing style numbers and also because of how the leather looks in the second auction (It looks very slightly plasticky/shiny) and for the life of me, I dont know why Coach would take out that beautiful multicolor lining and replace it with a blah and bland mono lining.

    I did hear that they are making a Legacy line exclusive for the outlets.

    The second one looks like the factory version to me, plus it has an "F" in front of the style number. I agree with Zombs, there is a legacy bag being made for the outlets. Hmm... perhaps the shininess is from a super bright flash or something.

    Gung, they both are authentic but NOT the same. Coach came up with this new legacy line exclusive to the OUTLET. I was at the outlet this weekend to look at them and the leather looks and feels cheaper and the linning is horrible. I love coach but I was very dissapointed, I expected much better quality for the price they were selling these bags, they aren't cheap let me tell you they are around 250+.

    yes that is correct. the second link the bag is real. the bag is from the outlet. I saw the bag yesterday the leather is different it is more stiff its hard to describe but the outlet leather is not the same.
