Just found this in a charity store. It's brand new and never been used. The quality looks really great. (and I have found an unused certified Chanel purse in this store before, so obviously has some rich patrons!) The zip fastners are heavy with lovely little swivelling balls on the end. The metal and bow detail on front is same as shoes in the Ferragumo range. It has a tag still attached with bar code. One thing that confuses me is the logo embossed/engraved in the front buckle is kind of different to the printed logo on the zip pulls. I'm no Designer expert so need your help - Do you think it's for real or not? Hope you can see these pics...

The metal buckle on front is silver coloured, not white (just reflecting the overcast sky here in UK!) Also ignore two small rain spots!
And V hard to photograph the inside leather logo. Am hoping my new cute bag is for real. Thanks for any input.

Kathykate:

One easy way to spot a counterfeit is the use of the leather "fobs", which most designers do not use.

I'm not sure if Ferragamo uses them, but this bag doesn't look right to me.

Wait for others to reply though to be certain.

Hi Kathykate:

I went through all the photos- i'm also wary with regard to the lining and the label - there's something "off " about both............

Well, it would have been a fairytale ending if it had been real... But only cost me a few pounds so not a problem. The quality is amazing though, never new they were making fakes so well!

San Francisco!
Ferragamo is an italian brand - so I dont' think there should be chinese writing anywhere on the label..

Also, the zipper looks like those cheap plastic ones. Most designer handbags use metal zips.
