    Default IS MY REBECCA MINKOFF MAC CLUTCH A KNOCK OFF?

    Last month I purchased a black MAC Clutch ($295) from Nordstrom. I then saw it on Ebags for about $55 less and purchased it for a gift. The Ebags purse arrived yesterday and it was immediately obvious that it is NOT the same purse... I think it is a knock off. With the bags side by side, the below descripancies (sp) are very very obvious.

    NORDSTROM:

    - The lining and storage bags are the signature black and blue colors
    - There is gold metal "Rebecca Minkoff" name plate on the bag of the bag
    - Rebecca Minkoff is inscribed on the top zipper pull
    - Inside by the zippered compart .. Rebecca Minkoff label is clearly visible

    EBAGS - POSSIBLE KNOCK OFF:

    - The lining on the inside and the cloth storage bag are both beige background with black square boxes
    - The finish on the gold colored metal is duller
    - The studs on the leather strap on the top, are 1/2 the size of the ones on my Nordstrom bag
    - The top zipper is not as polished and the zipper itself is of a poorer quality
    - The outside finish of the leather is duller and not as rich looking as the Norstrom bag
    - The name tag on the inside is much lower in the bag and difficult to read
    - There is no Rebecca Minkoff gold colored plate on the back of the bag
    - Rebecca Minkoff on the top zipper is on the side (not the pull itself) and is teeny tiny writing and very difficult to read.

    The stitching on both bags is comparable.

    I called Ebags requesting to speak to a manager. The manager's response was to say the least 'lukewarm'. She wouldn't give me her name but said she entered everything into the computer. She wasn't at all concerned, and told me to return it for a full credit - which is their policy on all of their products. So no biggie! I trust Ebags as I have ordered from them numerous times in the past. Obviously this bag was slipped into their warehouse in Tennessee.

    This purse in black is out of stock and they have no idea if they will be getting more. They still have them in numerous colors... I am only interested in the black.

    The Ebags manager that I spoke to said that she will 'check it out', but can't guarantee that I will see the end results.

    Has this happened to any of you, with Ebags or any other well know and respected online sites?

    I am trying to reach Rebecca Minkoff manufacturer or representatives to no avail... an info on contact the directly?

    Sorry for the long post, but his is important to me and very aggravating.

    Thanks in advance for your responses.

    I am out of town for the weekend and I don't have the purses with me. When I return home on Monday or Tuesday I will post pictures of both purses.

    Are they both black MACs? Really... hard to tell from the description; metal and RM quality will have some variations. I'm sure pics will help :)
    anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.

    Yes, both black RM MAC Clutch, with gold. The difference as definitely NOT variations, ie: color of linings, storage bags, metal name tag not on back of second purse, etc... Both are the larger size $295, not the smaller one, $195. As I said, I am out of town and both purses are at home. I thought that I'd be coming home Monday or Tues, but now it will be Wednesday or Thursday. I will take pics of them side by side showing the differences. Much more than just a color variation.

    I have two other RM purses, the Swing in two colors, and I am _very_ familiar with her products. Have any of you ever seen a lining and storage bag in beige with black squares instead of the blue and black??? I have seen a lot of RM's in Nordstrom and I have only see the black and blue.

    I will post the side by side comparison pics ASAP. Sorry for the delay, but thanks for your responses.

    Yes, pics would really help. I've owned several RM bags and each one has had variations in the lining, HW, dustbag...

    My Affair has a brown lining with black "X" markings, the linings change each season/year (whenever they decide to change it).

    Thanks. Do all of your RM's have the gold name tag on the back? Pics hopefully in the next few days.
