I have a small pochette I bought last year at Saks at South Coast Plaza (southern CA). At the time, when I looked at it, I thought to myself, "wow the hardware on this looks really cheap". I didn't have time to compare it to anything the day I was buying it. A day or 2 afterward, I went to the LV store to compare mine to the one they had on display, and it looks exactly the same. I'm still not convinced that the pochette isn't fake despite that I bought it at Saks. My boyfriend is French and says it looks "off" to him. I know that there are some very good fakes from Asia available here (in Southern CA) and that's what this looks like to me. For example, the "shiny-ness" (sorry I can't think of the right word!) of the brass on the zipper pull is wearing off ... is this supposed to happen?
