hi!! just joined minutes ago!! anyone who could answer a few q's regarding the authenticity of the paddington...it would be appreciated! regarding the black - is the interior lining supposed to black or tan? - are the rings and hardware soddered togethered? - what does the serial # mean? does each bag have a distinct #? i've been looking on eBay and different sellers show bags with the same exact serial# - does the black bag have black stitching or contrast white? how can you really tell the difference? or are the replicas so good that only a chloe rep can tell? the sellers on eBay even include the tags, serial #, care tags and bags. if you can't tell the difference i wouldn't mind having a replica and not spend all that money. thanks for your info!!
