FRIENDLY REMINDERS FOR MEMBERS SEEKING ASSISTANCE IN AUTHENTICATION : 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. Please follow format and try to limit to one request per post to avoid confusions and mix-ups: Name/item description/specific item FIRST example: LP Large Long Handle in Rouge ). Sometimes links are posted and the links contain A LOT of items, so please be more specific. Name of the seller: (if you know it) Item no.: (if it is on auction) Link to the item/link to the photos or attach photos : CLEAR PHOTOS (avoid flash and blur) of the whole item, parts such as the leather and horse and rider stamp, the zipper head and zipper pull, other leather marks, etc... ESPECIALLY OF THE TAG (when applicable)If there is none, then please ask the seller for it BEFORE posting the item here…. This actually is to save time and money on your part especially when you have a deadline to beat for returning fake items. Ensure that your links open. Please limit to one item per post. It will be easier to sort out and avoid confusion. You can always post as many separate items as you like. Following format will also make easier for members to follow who are selling authentic and fake items. :useless: Label your item. Labelling your item is important, in the sense that some sellers might mislead you...ie show an authentic tag with fake everything else. This is the same reason that we discourage authentication based on the tag alone, we can only say if the TAG is REAL or FAKE, not the item. This is for your safety, unless the item is in your hands and you are absolutely certain the tag isn't a transplanted one (yup, its been done!) Minimize discussion of details on the main thread please. If your item is found to be not authentic, please backread and take a look at other items that were found to be real. Reasons for failing authenticity (especially for Pliages and similar items) will almost always be similar. Please do not promote sellers. This is not a substitute for professional authentication. Authenticators are VOLUNTEERS and are offering opinions only, they are not obligated to answer every request. Please read TPFs rules, regulations and guides. TIA for your cooperation and we hope to be able to help everyone.
