I just found a bronze "mahala" on e-bay item #180139964710. I compared it to my real bronze maddy and here are the pics of some of the differences. Take a look at the zippers. The real zippers are much more intricate and the teeth are different. Also the fake has dark brown zippers, mine are more light brown. The decorative stitching on the fake matches the color of the bag. Mine has a definate contrast and is more tan in color. On the inside of the bag the stitching is squared around the corners of the metallic leather surrounding the zipper on the fake. Mine has more rounded edges. The key holder is shiny on the fake. Mine is matte. The first two pictures are fake. The second two are real.
