I recently purchased a Chanel jacket on eBay. The seller was very reputable with a high FB rating and has sold several other fine designer items, including many other Chanel jackets. I used to own a couple of Chanel jackets, but when I was laid off a few years ago, I took them all to the resale shop (). Now that I've been working steadily again, I've been keeping my eyes open, trying to replace the ones I used to own (I miss one terribly & wish I had never gotten rid of it!!) So I found this one on eBay a little while ago and noticed that it wasn't priced too high. The seller listed it a couple of times and the last time I made an offer which was accepted. I just received the jacket today, and while it's gorgeous, I noticed a few things about it that bother me. For one, the stitching on one of the front pockets looks very crooked. The top of the pocket is cut very unevenly and at one end it's got this extra piece of material that kinda sticks up. The Chanel label inside of the jacket looks a little lopsided too. And finally, my other jackets were made up of many "panels" that you could actually see through the lining. I remember reading someone that this is one of the best things about a Chanel jacket and which makes it so easy to alter. This jacket doesn't look like it's made up of several panels. I understand that one of the reasons this particular jacket was not very expensive is because it's not lined with silk (that's the other thing - it says the lining is 100% wool, but it's more of a thin, mesh-like material & doesn't really feel like wool). It also only has two buttons which aren't really fancy (I know sometimes Chanel uses very decorative buttons). It does have the weighted chain around the hemline, however. I've never seen a fake Chanel jacket like this. I've seen the fake windbreakers/silk jackets (I actually bought one myself a loonnggg time ago thinking it was real - what did I know!). Does anyone know if fake Chanel jackets exist? Does anyone out there no much about Chanel jackets at all? Again, this seller appears to be very reputable, and I don't really think she'd purposely sell a fake - is it possible that I just got a rather sloppy jacket, and not one of Chanel's better ones??
