    Default Did I buy a fake Prada? (sob!)

    Hello! I've been a lurker for awhile and love this forum!

    I bought a green nylon bag with brown leather accents from a friend (she needed the cash, I wanted the bag!) I already have two others and am familiar with the fake tells. I compared it to my bags: the logo matches exactly and the plates are securely fastened; the plate on the front is green, like the bag, and the one on the inside is brown, like the lining; the lining matches my other bags, with Prada printed horizontally and aligned straight; "Prada" (with the funky "R") is engraved on all the hardware, including the D rings; the leather accents are rich and supple; the stitching is straight and even, and the color of the thread matches the bag exactly. Sounds good, right? EXCEPT - the logo plate on the inside isn't straight. Every single detail points to it being real except for the crooked plate. Prada doesn't sell bags with crooked plates, do they? She bought it several years ago and no longer has the authenticity card, but I'm sure she isn't trying to pull one over on me. If it's fake, I don't think she knows. What do you think? Are fakes really that good? :::cries into beer:::

    I'm happy to post pics if you tell me how. Thanks so much.

    I'm not too familiar with Prada, but someone else here might know. You can post pics by clicking on the button that looks like a photo of a tree.

    Before you make the beer too salty with your tears have pics posted and authenticated by someone who knows Prada.

    Crooked plate does seem weird, but then again, sometimes manufacturing mistakes do happens once in a new blue moon! Good Luck...i hope it is real.

    Aww, I think the easiest way would be to go to a shop that's good with high fashion and ask for advice from someone who can see and touch it. After all, advice is always free, right?
