Hello,

I’m looking to purchase this extra large ps 1 in black. However, I noticed that the tag looks different from the other ps1 models. Is this normal for the XL model?

Thank you!

Hi! This is not normal for the XL, no, that bag usually comes with two straps. What you have here is a Men's version: https://www.lyst.com/bags/proenza-schouler-medium-ps1-shoulder-bag-black-6/ Don't mind that it says it's a 'Medium', it's not, Lyst gets sizes confused sometimes.

This might be authentic, but obviously, with just two so-so photos there's no way to know for sure. So if you want the bag authenticated, please provide all the necessary pictures and, if you have it, the link to the listing.

Thank you, IntheOcean. I’ll ask the seller for more photos of the bag.

Hi IntheOcean,

I managed to get more photos. Hopefully this will do to help authenticate the bag :smile:

Thank you!!

I have this same black XL PS1. It is made from grained buffalo…not lambskin like the others. It is heavier than the lambskin version but worth it since the buffalo is a workhorse. I have used it for work and travel and it still looks great…like new.

My PS tag is also attached the same way as in your photos. I have seen other XL buffalo PS1s in which the tag is attached the “normal” way and the ends of the strap are a bit different. I assume they are just adjustments they made with different year models.

I have attached a pic of the PS1 tag attachment that I found online. B41B8398-4E6E-44E6-AE42-B0E61236AF6D.jpeg
