Hello all. I am currently in a very bad situation. I purchased a blanc Chloe Paddington on eBay. The girls at the Authenticate this Chloe thread and I are having a hard time determining if the bag is authentic or not. Here is a link to my album with the pictures of the bag: http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b143/2starsonmyback/Chloe%20Paddington%20Blanc%2006/ As you can see, there is damage to the hardware. It shows a lot of the silver material underneath, and the engravings on the plates look "off". The leather is not as stiff as it looks in the pictures. I have filed a dispute with paypal. The seller swears the bag is authentic. Now, here is where I need your help. I need to know if you have any of this issues with your paddys, and if you feel comfortable, post pictures. We are thinking that if my bag is in fact authentic, some of the issues with the hardware could be due to Chloe's excellent quality control, or the location where this specific kind of bags where made. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.
