Help! Which Birkin is this?

  1. I'm really starting to LOVE :love: this bag, but of course the seller obviously knows nothing about Hermes (he doesn't even know it's a birkin! lol) so I know oh so little about it. I'm guessing that it's an HAC 50cm but haven't a clue as to the color. What's the leather? Togo? Clemence? Is it even authentic? Argh! Any help would be appreciated!

  2. I wish I knew- I am sure one of the other ladies will be by to help you out. Looks like a HAC, and could be clemence (slouchy) but hard to tell from the pics.
     
  3. It's supposed to be a HAC, but this bag is fake!
     
  4. OMG :amazed: I had no idea that they'd make such a big fake Birkin! Counterfeiters usually go where the money is, and that means the 35. It seems that a 50 would have such limited appeal, but I thought something looked off with strap holders. Thanks!
     
  5. Yes, I agree, no brainer - totally fake.:yucky:
     
  6. Not sure why the general consensus is that this is a fake, but I've seen these very large HAC's at the stores. This one looks like an older one, judging from the oxidized hardware. The pictures are poor, but this looks like the genuine article to me. The strap guides, turnlock, etc. look right for this large an HAC.
     
  7. Whoa! Is that a new Avitar, Otingocni???? This is the first time I've seen it and there's a GORGEOUS kelly on there........
     
  8. Thanks, shopmom411!
     
  9. hehe- I guess I won't be getting it! Overnight the price went up 5x. Probably a good thing though, since red isn't my passion. Thanks anyway!
     
  10. It is fake and Hermes does not even make a HAC in that size unless if you special order it (which is rare too!).
     
  11. This is a Travel size HAC and sorry to contradict you, but it is authentic.
     
  12. This is the type of strap holder that Hermes uses on their HAC. In fact, they use the same type of strap holder on their shoulder Birkins too. Hope this explains :smile:
     
  13. I agree and I have seen Travel size HAC in 45cm and 50cm at the shops occasionally too. Beside the strap holders, turnlock, this one has the right lock too :smile:
     
  14. I'm staring at the picture with the interior zipper just barely visible -- doesn't its position indicate it is likely a fake? Also does Hermes make their travel bag interiors in suede? That's what it looks like to me....
     
  15. From what I can see, the lining looks like Cherve to me :smile:
