  4. Hi Ladies, you helped me authenticate this bag, as authentic. I have a question about the dust cover. This dust cover is very thin, almost feels like linen. It is not like the other dust covers that I have. My other ones are a thicker material. Is that common? or does that sound like its fake? I am really worried after seeing so many fakes sold on ioffer... Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated...

  11. LEE, i couldnt quote my post but I did ask for pics but they shipped before taking. I did email them about the inconsistency of the code and they have intercepted the shipment and will be refunding my money as to not confuse buyers. The date code was erroneous but the bag was authentic. Does that happen? Should I continue with the purchase?
     
  12. What was the date code?(I cannot read it, that's why I need a new set of pics) How do you know the bag is authentic?
    Whenever the date code doesn't make sense, we'll have to look at other details to confirm authenticty.
    So the bag is on it's way back to seller? Get good clear pics BEFORE buying again.
     
  13. Yes, it's removed from the site completely now. The date code was SP2507. According to the format, that would mean it was made in the 20th week of 1957? Here is the message I received.
    ___________________________________________
    Louis Vuitton bags made 2007 later should have the format week/year/week/year (not month/year/month/year). For example, SP2057 would indicate 25th week of 2007.

    We conducted some further research and it appears that the Speedy Damier bag that you purchase is authentic, but has an erroneous date code. This is a rare occurance, but does happen on occasion. This is confirmed by a well-known LV moderator on the PurseForum:

    http://forum.purseblog.com/date-codes/datecode-sp2507-epi-ivory-speedy-25-a-339597.html#post7478158

    In any case, we have issued you a full refund and have recalled the package. We will not list it for sale on Yoogi's Closet due to the confusion that it will cause with potential buyers. Lastly, we are happy to extend the 10% offer to you for your next purchase.

    If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


     
  14. Sorry, I got you confused with someone else.

    I have seen items with date code which does not make sense but is authentic. (not many)

    I will need to see the extra pics I requested to confirm but I don't think Yoogi's going to sell it anyway. Look for other Speedy.;)
     
  15. NO, they're not. They've already removed it and stated they won't be reselling. If that changes, I will get more pics and send to you.

    Thanks for your help!!!!
