Ok - so I got my Gryson today. It looks authentic to me. Leather is nice throughout (a little thicker & "pebbly" than I thought, but nice). But here's the thing...I was at Nordstrom's tonight. They recently got in the new line of Gryson bags (saw the Blue Jean BTW - NICE!!). They had a couple of Oliva's including one in black. These had silver hardware, however, which I know they changed for spring (the bag I bought has brass hardware). I checked the bag over and it looks exactly like mine, except.... My main zipper is a Lampo as well as the front pocket. The inner zipper is blank. The bags at Nordstroms, all had riri zippers - both inside & out. Also, as several people noted from the picture of the bag I bought, the woven handles on my bag are a bit stretched out. Not too bad, but definitely stretched. They also "creak" when you hold the bag by the handles. I've read that there were several issues about the handles on some of the earlier bags and that the company addressed them, and fixed the issues. I noticed that the handles on all the bags at Nordstroms were a little bit more secure & tight than mine are. I'm guessing this could be one of the issues that was fixed. I need to know if anyone who has a bag w/brass hardware can tell me if their zippers are Lampo or riri, and if their inner zipper is also blank. I hope I didn't get another fake bag. I will scream! That will definitely put an end to my ebay buying days (I've already been the victim of a fake Balenciaga (2 yrs ago - money refunded), a fake Bulga (1 yr ago - lost my money on that one), & a questionable Kooba (recent - still unresolved). I don't think I could stand it if another bag was fake. I've had much more good luck on ebay than bad, but I don't think I can take another disappointment right now. Please - someone give me some good news!
