Authenticate This Ralph Lauren

  1. I'm always wary of people who say things like they bought their bags from a "reputable source." If they can't tell you exactly where they bought it, I would shy away from it. It's too expensive to risk it. It sounds like you're a bit apprehensive too, so trust your gut.
     
  2. I dunno, the pic of the interior lable is too blurry to make out. I would ask for another pic, tell her to use the macro setting, the little flower. It also looks like there are faint scratches on the front part of the bag and on the bottom too.

    As well, she wants to charge $200 for Fedex to Canada- I just had 4 car rims, way heavier and worth more, shipped UPS and it was $190 USD. Overcharging for shipping is a big no-no for me.
     
  3. Hi

    This is my first post-I have not formally introduced myself yet but will do so soon.

    I have been trying to learn details regarding this bag.
    I have a Ralph Lauren Handbag Black embossed crock leather with sterling parts.
    The hallmark states RL 67.
    Were these bags made in 1967?
    Were authentic Ralph Lauren bags ever made in Korea?
    Is this embossed leather?

  4. Well, the auction ended, but I wouldn't trust a seller that is selling all new luxury discounted goods out of China.
     
  5. Does anybody recognize this "Ralph Lauren" bag..?
    & if so, from what collection, and what is it's name?
    Does anybody know if there are runway photos featuring this bag?

  6. Are there fake Ralph Lauren bags? For example, here are some pictures of a Ralph Lauren bag.

  7. I know there's fake Ralph Lauren clothing, so I would imagine the bags are faked too. However, I don't know how go about authenticating them. Sorry. Maybe someone else can help?
     
  8. I've never discovered much information about their purses being faked. The stitching on the label looks slightly suspicious and I haven't seen too many Made in China tags from them.
     
  9. The Ralph Lauren Ricky bag is heavily faked, so I wouldn't be surprised if others were as well.
     
  10. But the profit potential is much higher for that bag than others. I can imagine them faking a straw tote or a monogram fabric cosmetic bag.
     
  11. No RL experts?
     
  12. that is a RL bag.
