    Unfortunately we do not have any active authenticators for this forum any longer, please look for a paid service. Thanks!

    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.


    1. Do a SEARCH and check if the item has been reviewed by one of the authenticators before posting a request. Searches can be done via the seller name or by auction/listing number - add * to the beginning and end of the number (eg. *12345678*).

    2. You MUST use the format below when requesting for authentication for auctions or non-auctions:

    Format to use for an auction item:

    Item Name:
    Item Number:
    Seller ID:
    Link: (please make sure link works after you post)

    Format to use for non-auction item:

    Item Name (if you know it):
    Link (if available):
    Photos: (attach using the paperclip at the top of the message box or upload to and post the links)

    3. All requests must have clear photos (either in listing and/or provided by member requesting the authentication). This will help expedite authentications. Please ask the seller/use the macro setting on your digi (little flower). If you cannot see the details yourself, neither can we.

    At minimum, pics MUST include:
    • Front
    • Back
    • Side
    • Bottom
    • Zipper
    • Heatstamp (Goyard Made in France)
    • Date Code
    • Zipper Pulls
    • Snaps (front and back)

    If the listing or your request does not have the required pics, it will NOT be reviewed. That means if you have not received a response, please check your original posting to ensure all information and pics are present.

    Authenticators are not required to answer every request, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.

    4. Do NOT make more than 3 requests per post.

    5. Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping your request. Search by seller or item # to ensure that it has not been reviewed (see rule 1). If the auction is ending soon, you may say so in your comments. Remember, we are just like you, and get on tPF when we have time so please be patient.

    6. To ensure that additional pics requested are seen by the authenticators, quote or provide a link to your original request and response. Use the quote feature or copy and paste the url. Failure to do do may result in your query not being answered. Please utilize the quote feature when responding directly to another post.

    7. Comments on price and/or condition are NOT permitted. So please do not ask us for an opinion.

    8. Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.

    9. Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.

    10. Do NOT handle your disputes with other members in this thread. Take your differences to Private Message or just use the REPORT function to alert the mods, and let them handle it from there. In the meantime, just ignore the poster until a Mod can intervene. Failure to do so can result in banning. Always be respectful when you post and treat others as you expect to be treated. This is an open thread and everyone is welcome to participate.


    All Authenticate This threads on tPF are meant to provide assistance to shoppers who are uncertain about the legitimacy and authenticity of designer goods. The evaluations posted by tPF's members are only opinions that stem from personal experiences as shoppers and collectors. They are not legally binding or professional authentications and are not to be treated as such.

    Steph...setting up a photobucket account is reccomended for large clear photos. is free. Just set up the account and upload the photos into their own album. You can then post the album link here! Try that.

    I took a look at your Goyard and I also need to see photos of the interior where it says Goyard and Made in. If you could please post photos of the receipt you have that could be helpful also. Try to make the photos clear and head on. Thanks.

    Could you clarify-
    Your husband purchased the bag and had stripes added so you had to wait for it?
    Your husband purchased the bag and gave it to you and your shipped it to GOYARD for stripes?
  3. I will try to do that. My husband has the receipt (and though I have seen it) I would feel it inappropriate to ask for it. After giving it to me, we shipped it back to GOYARD for the stripes. (That way I could choose the colors). I'm sure it is perfectly authentic, especially since it was sent off for personalization but I was not there when he purchased it, and after reading horror stories I want to make sure.
  4. I still need the photos of the heatstamp for confirmation IMO.
  5. Based on the photo of the snap, handles, and stamp it looks ok (Although the letters in GOYARD are spaced farther apart than usual but apparently this isn't uncommon).

    The photos of the canvas of the bag are too small for me to tell difinitively IMO. I can't get an idea of the texture.

    Goyard would not have hand painted it if it was not authentic.

    A photo of the receipt could be the kicker if you can get it.

    if this bag has already been sent to Goyard (which store?) to do the stripes, then there won't be a authenticity problem because I'm sure Goyard won't accept a counterfeit to be personalized.
    ITA w/amour..
  7. Yup, always a good Idea. NP!
  8. Thank a lot! I would pass:supacool:
  9. Don't trust a Goyard bag on eBay. Purchase it directly from Goyard, Barney's or Bergdorf Goodman store. Do not lose your money this way. So many of us have and we are just sick sick sick about it. You can't tell through photos that these are fake, but they are. You can't tell until your money is gone and you have a fake vinyl bag.

    I assume Steph that your bag is on Ebay now, as the photos are the same as yours posted previously, as is the story about where purchased, yada-yada.

    If this is indeed your bag on ebay...I am wondering why you list your location on PF as Kansas, but your location on Ebay as Tx?

    ETA: OOPS... listing removed... hmmm.. there was something about this listing that ebay did not like...
