...is coming very soon! Due to recent events on our board, many members have expressed a desire to be educated on exactly how to tell a real from a fake Hermes croc bag, or specifically, the Birkin bag. Our usual position on authentication matters is for members to post bags in question on the designated thread and those who know chime in. Answers are usually vague for some very important reasons and details are provided via pm if requested. What is our purpose here? 1. To celebrate REAL Hermes bags and the people who love them 2. To provide information to aid the safe purchase of these bags, or provide information for the collector to learn more about his or her passion. Our purpose is not to: 1. Provide unscrupulous sellers or counterfeiters with too many specific details that can aid them in their fraudulent activity. That being said, we are nearly finished putting together a very comprehensive and easy to follow guide, with pictures, that shows exactly how to tell a real from a fake croc Birkin. Why croc? They can be difficult to authenticate, and, you guys simply requested it. What has not yet been decided is how the guide will be posted. It will most likely be via pm to those who wish to read it, or perhaps an e-mail. We have not ruled out posting it as a thread, perhaps for a limited time because of the needs of our board. So, stay tuned!
