Some of the other forums have a thread like this, and I thought it would be useful here. I feel pretty confident that this bag is not authentic: eBay: Authentic Marc Jacobs Multipocket Hobo Purse Handbag (item 220031097121 end time Sep-30-06 15:17:50 PDT) I know that some people have been looking for a black mp, but let me tell you why I would not bid on this one. For starters, the photos are not that great. That means nothing, but makes determining authenticity more difficult. Next, the measurements given, an approximation albeit, are :11" x 7". This would make this a small MP and also mean that they counted the side pockets in the measurement. The listing says that there are 4 feet on the bottom of this bag, which would be incorrect for the small multipocket. (If you were looking for a large, the protective feet is one thing you should be looking for, however.) Another detail which is off, to me, are the front pockets. The front pockets should be more square shaped (I believe that the actual measurements are something like 4.5" x 3.5"-someone correct me if I am wrong.) The listing also mentions hardware issues, specifically the zipper on the inner pocket being gone. I have not heard of this happening with MJ before, but would think that if it was an authentic bag, they would have had MJ repair this. From everything I have heard, MJ is fairly good about standing behind their merchandise, and getting repairs taken care of.
