Nordstroms - Fake Mina Bag?? Please Say It's Not So!

  1. I picked up an Emerald Green Mina today from Nordstroms and now that I'm looking at it more closely, I have several concerns. I've posted some authenticity questions in the Authenticity Thread, but I just wondered.....Has anyone ever seen and/or purchased a fake Designer Bag from Nordstroms (or any other major department store) before? I know that if this were true, it would have had to be a customer return (and this bag appears to be a customer return), but I do know it's a possibility.

    If anyone out there knows anything about the Mina bag and/or thinks that they can help me - PLEASE read my questions in the Authenticity Thread.

    Thanks
     
  2. Hi! - I haven't seen a faked elastic quilt bag yet. It is a patented (shiny) finish goat leather which is very different in look and feel than the calf leather.

    I didn't see anything posted in the Authenticity thread yet regarding this bag -- Hopefully, we can all give opinions when we see photos.

    But definately, Nordstroms will refund/accept return if the bag is fake.
     
  3. The leather isn't what concerns me - it's the details like the tags - I've posted all the details in the Authenticate This thread.

  4. So far, the consensus is that the bag is authentic (Yay!)

    The thing that got me concerned was that the leather care tag had a couple of mis-spelled words. Apparently, another PFer got the same exact card in her bag (which was also a Quilted Elastic Bag!). It also has a leather ID tag instead of cloth (which again, this PFer's bag had also).
     
  5. It definitely does look suspicious. Either that or Marc needs a new spell-checker!
