Can you please authenticate this Kate Spade??

  1. I am brand new to designer bags but found numerous Kate Spade websites about how to spot fakes, etc. I did not see anything on this bag that says fake except there is no made in tag but it also said there wasnt always made in tags. I also cant find this bag anywhere online, I tried searching for hours, Google, eBay, Kate Spade, I am giving up and seeing if any of you can help me. I found one similar to it but not exact is why I am worried its fake.
    Thanks so much!!

    P.S The labels not crooked, my photography is LOL

  2. Ok I am starting to think its fake. The only one I can find similar to it has a brown leather straps, mine are black nylon. The stitching is excellent but I am beginning to think its a fake, which wouldnt surprise me since I found it at a second hand shop.
     
  3. I think I have to agree with you -- look at how the stitching is uneven on the Kate Spade patch, especially in the lower right hand corner.
     
  4. Hi there! I would suggest checking out this link from the Tyra Banks show. How to spot a fake purse. Good luck!

  5. First off, welcome to TPF! :flowers:

    Unfortunately, this looks fake to me. The notches in the label are off. You can see what it's supposed to look like here:

    It looks like it's trying to be part of the buffalo plaid line, but it's not quite right. You can see the authentic ones here:

    If you're looking to buy Kate Spade, the lady who maintains the ihatecounterfeitbags.info does a great job with it. I always head there first if I'm looking to buy from anywhere other than a Kate Spade store. I hope this helps!
     
  6. Yeah, I took one look at the "a" in spade and thought it looked off! Welcome to tPF!
     
  7. I always look at the label first and this one is way off. I am afraid it is fake. Did you know to look in the pocket? Many real bags have a tiny flag or black numbered label in there. Better luck next time!
