    Default BLACK PATENT GUCCI

    Please Advise ANYONE!!!

    Bought a black patent leather Gucci Bag from store that buys like "overstock"- and they had bought this from Blue Fly- the tag still attached. Anyone with experience of Blue Fly? Are they reputable and trustworthy - in terms of authenticity of bags they sell?
    This bag is Code Number 177100 Borsa Romy. Number under inner leather tag has 177100 plus 002404 on it. Which is on the off white card inside . Actually on a sticker attached to back of this card that is in 4 or 5 different languages-front of card says GUCCI, La cura del prodotto. Also has greyish color controllato card with numbers 1 to 0.
    There is also a GUCCI La storia cover of a booklet- which has history of the company..." Since the birth of the company in 1921...." and has pictures in the booklet which is in a number of different languages again.Strange thing- zipper tag inside bag does not have any logo or anything-just piece of leather. Is that usual? Lining has maroon floral circle pattern with little G's interspersed . Dust Bag is heavy material, medium brown and white inside with black tag inside that says G U C C I made in Italy. Front of dustbag has big gold GUCCI lettering. Anyone know naything about these bags. Nothing on official website to see and compare. How do we use the control numbers to look up item to really see what
    bag it is. I am afraid this is fake but really cant afford to go to flagship store. Orig price $3500- bought for $1000. Have 30 days to return and to store but not blue fly. I am not good in gen. with differentiating real from fake and now harder cause this is black patent leather with 2 handles, siver ware, belt design around bag with silver buckles and silver rings. Each end of bag has silver plate with Gucci written like fast handwriting on it. Real pretty. No other gucci emblems on any other zippers or screws or hardware. Anyone have anything like this????

    Can you post a pic? Perhaps one of the ladies here could authenticate for you.

    What is the store you bought it from called? Bluefly is a reputable online seller. I've never bought from them, but apparently they are recommended.

    Btw, I have a Gucci bag and the zipper tag does not have a logo - just plain leather but there is a Gucci on the hardware. But maybe it's the style of the bag.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for replying, had to figure how to add pics. How come I dont see any thing like this on Gucci's website. I mean is it an old design or what? ( As in made expressly for "Faux" market!!). Or is it like from another country- but real "store"? Because of the multi languages in the booklet. Whay bothers me is that I can find this on the internet- as in order a fake one & the pics look exactly the same- lining in bag & bag. I know they often post pics of real one so you can order the exact replica- $160. Well, if they can make replica, where is the real one. I cannot find it via numbers on Gucci's website. Is there other avenue for looking up code numbers? Quite sure that " Value City" did buy this Bluefly "BUY Out"- as they have plenty of other name brand goods, shoes, bags, belts, all with "Blue fly" tags. So it is legit Bluefly.
    So look at pics please, let me kno what u all think. Does this animal exist?
    Thanxs!!!

    Hi there,
    Added photo's. Don't laugh, its from Value City - who does "Buy Outs". They had plenty other designer goods- Bluefly. See phot's and let me know what you think. Its easier with the classical design bags to spot print or symmetry errors that are a give away for fake. Seems harder with the leather ones or patent. What is your experience with Gucci bags like that? Can a bag like that vreally run $3500?

    Hi there, please see attached photos. Do you have bunch of ladies that can help me? How do I use the code numbers to look up if the numbers belong to that bag and what it looks like? I tried on Gucci website- seems they only post latest design, couldn't find those codes.

    I'm not a Gucci expert, but it's raising red flags for me. I've never seen a Gucci style like that and I have two Gucci bags bought years apart and I've never seen that sort of dustbag. The cloth tag is also unusual.

    Do you live near to a Gucci store that you can bring in to authenticate?

    Actually the dust bag is current along with the booklet. My last Gucci bag came with that dustbag. I bought my bag directly for Gucci in Tysons Corner. If you look at my avatar, you can see the dustbag. However, I have never seen that style of bag. They have a similar style to that, but it doesn't look like that exactly. Unfortunately, the counterfeiters are getting very good at this. You can go to the warehouse district in NYC and buy fakes with Neiman Marcus tags on it. So, be aware of that scam as well. Don't believe it when you hear about the so called friend that works at Neimans and can get stuff cheap.

    Everyone likes to save a dollar. When it comes to my handbags, I don't play around. If it doesn't come from the actual store or from a department store where I know they have been sold for years, then I won't be purchasing them. I always advise everyone who loves bags to look at the official website or go to the official store to see what is offered. The thing about Gucci is that they offer alot of different things in different countries. I advise that when you go to their site, click on every country and see what they offer.

    Here are pics of the bags, shoe boxes and dustbag from my last Gucci purchases. All of them were purchased directly from Gucci either from the website or directly from Gucci.

    Thanks, Divatologist for setting me straight. I bought a makeup bag from Gucci recently and had a box and bag as shown, but it didn't come with dustbag.
