    Pictures that can help us authenticate are:

  2. I've been looking for this bag for quite some time now but have never seen it irl only on pictures. There are already fakes of this style on Ioffer and they look pretty good from what I've seen so far. I couldn't tell them apart but maybe somebody here owns this bag and can help me out. I need you to authenticate this bag. The leather appears to be soft and slouchy but he fake ones might have that too. The seller said I could return the bag for a full refund if proven fake. Should I risk it or rather stayaway? TIA

  3. ^ Sorry, it says it's no longer available...

    Is it ok if we use this thread for all authentifications of Wang bags?
    We don't need that many threads about it. :smile:
     
  4. Just got this Brenda of eBay and when I opened it something about it seemed fishy to me. Fake? The color is a bit more blue irl and the bag is also more distressed than it looks. It quite veiny but my camera didn't capture it very well.

    The photos are taken by me.

  6. Hi ladies,

    Does anyone know what is the best way a seller can verify an authentic Aexander Wang bag? Does a store receipt really mean anything?

    Thanks for your time,
    Raeann
     
  7. I can't help authenticate any Wang bags, I'm not familar with the brand but I can tell you that just because they offer a store receipt, it does NOT mean the bag is legit. Receipts are easily faked too these days.
     
  8. I just bought this Alexander Wang coco duffle on ebay for a BIN price. I was stupid and paid $200. I think it is fake. Even though it is really heavy but the leather doesn't look as pebbled as MK's or the other celebs. Here are the links to the pix anyway

  9. Here are more pictures that I just took of my AW for you guys to authenticate. The last picture is of the handle where there is a nick on the leather... does leather even do this? Or is this just another indication of it being a fake? I took pictures of the "made in china" logo because in another forum on here about this bag it was confirmed that it IS in fact made in china but someone who bought the bag from Barney's said the made in china tag is in black so I just wanted to take a picture of it for verification. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks :smile:

    if you look at the pictures of the coco duffle on like netaporter, the pebbling is very distinct.
