    That is the question. It appears that they may have, but in all the searching I've done I haven't found a RELIABLE source to say yes or no. I wrote to customer service, along with sending photos. And apparently the code on the back of the tag is supposed to tell you where it was made, what year, and what style...but I guess that's only something D & B can tell me. I'll keep you posted when (and if ) they write back. That way we can learn something for future reference.

    ^^^ Yes, do share with us what you find out. That would be really helpful. And as far as the code goes, I just know that the letter represents the country/factory. The rest of it is some sort of code that doesn't appear to be easily deciphered.

    Ok, thanks! Well, I did notice the inside tag does not say in the USA. It just says Dooney & Bourke INC. Does that matter?

    ^^^ It's the right tag. Dooney hasn't been made in the US for quite some time now.

    Ok that's makes me feel better. I guess I am very suspicious, because I had an issue with another D&B being fake.

    Wow, I have the last post on this thread, and yet here I am again. I keep telling myself I shouldn't mess with Ebay any more as far as trying to buy a designer bag, but OOPS I did it again. The item I purchased is a Dooney & Bourke bag yet again. The item has been shipped, and I should receive it shortly, but as of today I'm starting to wonder if I screwed up buying this, and if its not authentic. I am posting a couple of pictures of the item. If you notice, in that one close up shot of just the handle, it looks like the D&B logo print is inside the bag. Do you see this as well? If I'm not mistaken, isn't that a dead give away, that's it not authentic? I mean D&B as far as I know, does not use their signature inside the bags. I don't know why I didn't notice this before, and also the seller didn't have pictures of the inside of the bag. I know I should have asked for those, but just didn't. I could have sworn I'd seen plenty of the same ones on Ebay, and to me it appeared to be authentic. I feel like an idiot, but was wondering if anyone could help on this. I will find out for sure soon, but I'm really curious now, if this is a fake or not. I guess I should just give up on getting a cheap D&B bag. What is wrong with people, why can't they just be HONEST. I realize I obviously don't have enough knowledge to distinguish a fake from an authentic, so shouldn't be buying one.....

    I wouldn't panic just yet. That particular style has a lip of fabric around the top on the inside of the bag. The actual lining starts like an inch or two down. So wait for the bag to come and then take some pics for us and we should be able to figure it out.

    Thanks for offering to help, but received bag to day, and its definitely authentic. However, of course there are other issues which seller didn't disclose. Let's see it reeks of moth balls, and the leather has obvious wear, even though seller was claiming it brand new, no defects, stains etc....and no odors. I think its well worth paying retail, I really do at this point.

    Okay, I don't recognize the tote but I haven't been to a Dooney outlet in years. I wouldn't worry about the absence of a lining, there are a lot of bags made for QVC and the outlets that do not have linings. There are totes out there right now that are very similar style-wise (square tabs where handles attach, feet on bottom, single strap closure, etc) to this that don't have linings either. Do you have pictures of the interior tag?

    the stitch at the tag looks a little jumpy but with it and the straps appearing to be real leather and the fabric looks right I would say it a good one :)
