so my friend got this chanel bag..

  1. .. and I told her it looked fake, mainly because the inside 'chanel made in france' (which I coincidentally could not get a good picture of). But she wanted me to get some of your opinions. Thanks to all that can help!:biggrin:[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    by the way, let me know if you need any other pictures!

  2. I think it looks fake because of the CCs
  3. yeah I can see that too, I think there's a couple of things that just seem off about it
  4. Is it a matte leather or shiny? Seems awfully shiny to me (but could be the flash).
  5. It's not patent, if that's what you mean. I'm pretty sure it's matte.
  6. The stitching on the CCs look sloppy. What does the underside of the zipper say?
  7. Where did she get it and what did she pay? Those can be good clues.
  8. The stitching looks cheap. You could also tell by the way the quilting does or doesn't match up at the seams and corners,if you know what I mean.
  9. Why did you say "mainly because of 'Chanel Made in France'"? Does the tag look odd? Or the fact that it was made in France? If second, then Chanel bags ARE being made in France because I just got a tote from a boutique and it was made in France!

    It doesn't look fake to me but then I am not an expert.
  10. same here.
  11. thats such a cute bag!!! :smile:
  12. fake, the interlocking CCs look sloppy in the stitching and not perfectly smooth all around. looks too uneven to be real.
  13. It's not that it says 'made in france' but the font looks kind of off and it touches both sides of the stitching, when usually there is some space between the C and the stitching and the little r and the stitching. Kind of hard to explain.
  14. Heehee, if it's real, a drunk guy must have stitched it!
  15. May I know where your friend buy the bag?

    That's why I said, the best place to buy Chanel bags will have to be the Chanel boutique itself. It's hard to trust resellers.
