    This thread is for discussion on authenticity of Hermes scarves and Ready-To-Wear.

    NOTE: The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.

    This thread provides help with authentication –did Hermes indeed manufacture an item? Authentication requires a link to a currently for sale item with photos of title, signature, copyright, hems, close-up of fabric – weave, full flat scarf photo. Hermes scarves, have over the years, been manufactured to different standards of quality. Identifying marks may be absent on some scarves. Ask seller for extra photos prior to authentication request. It is the buyer’s responsibility to assess condition - does the item show signs of wear?

    Please follow these rules:

    • Before you submit a request for authentication, please search this thread to make sure that the item has not previously been authenticated. This is not a thread to ask general questions about Hermes, please refer to our reference section for such information. Finally, do not submit requests for something that is obviously a fake, e.g. the item says it is a replica, or a $200 Birkin.

    • It is the preference of the authenticators on this thread not to give authentication to members who buy and resell scarves as an ongoing practice. It is also the preference of the authenticators to comment on current, not closed, auctions and sales, and to give authentication to members who post in a range of threads, not just requesting free authentication for designer items. If your request is not answered here, for whatever reasons, professional authentication services are available outside of PF.

    • This is a free service, but it is imperative that you help our authenticators by using the following format:

    Listing number:
    • Authenticators are not required to answer every request, some may not be answered for various reaons, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.
    • Authenticators may also request additional pictures and/or information in order to assist with authentication. Please remember, it is always useful to have several close up pictures when submitting an item for authentication.
    • For scarves, please provide pictures of the hem, tag if possible, copyright, and close up to show the weave. Hermes stamp on every item.
    • Please do not intervene to confront a troll or rudeness on the boards, just use the REPORT function to alert the mods, and let them handle it from there. In the meantime, just ignore the poster until a mod can intervene.
    • Always be respectful when you post and treat others as you expect to be treated.

    • Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.

    All Authenticate This threads on tPF are meant to provide assistance to shoppers who are uncertain about the legitimacy and authenticity of designer goods.

  2. Dear Authenticators, I'd love to have your opinion regarding the authenticity of the following scarf. I can't believe that I could ever have it in this exact colorway and still unable to think straight now...
    Item: La Femme aux Semelles de Vent in noir/sepia
    Listing number:n/a
    Seller: private seller on
    Link: (the listing photo is useless so I'm posting my photo link instead)
    Weight: 68gr, dimensions: 89x88cm
    Comments: Everything looks spot-on to my amateur eyes (esp. the grayish matte ink on the animal print and yaks, the new silk scent and feel). It came with a 2009 Autumn-Winter scarf booklet and carres' stories booklet.
    Please excuse my watermarks in the photos, this design is often faked so I just want to prevent unauthorized use, in case it's indeed authentic.

    Thank you all for your help so far this year with my silk purchases and wish you a safe and happy holiday :drinkup:! :xtree:
  3. hello, can you pl autheticate this globetrotter agenda? it is my dream one that i have been searching for a few years, but won't purchase till I have your approval. Besides it has been listed 4 times in the past few weeks. quite reduced price for an unused Hermes, so am surprised that nobody snatched it yet.

    eBay link:
    seller id: qv7
    item no:221169059044
    item name on eBay listing: Hermes Red Epsom Globe Trotter Zip Agenda

    thank you
    merry xmas
  4. Dear, I think it would save your time if you re-read the name of this thread: Authenticate this Hermes Scarf/Ready-to-Wear. Agenda doesn't sound like "read-to-wear" to me. Agenda authentication requests may be answered in the other thread:
  5. sorry, I will re-write my query to the appropriate thread.
  6. Lucky you! This is authentic.
