How do you actually get an MJ bag authenticated?

  1. Do I have to take it to the Marc Jacobs store? Are there any other options?

    I bought a black Elise on eBay, and now I'm having second thoughts about it. I may post some pictures later, but in the meantime, I was wondering how I could get it authenticated (the seller will guarantee the authenticity).

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Most boutiques will not authenticate bags. I'm not sure about Marc Jacobs though. If you have a relationship with a SA, he/she might be willing to help you out.

    There are a number of members here who know what to look for in a bag, so you should definitely post a few pictures when you get a chance. Do you have an auction number that we could refer to?
  3. Thanks Angst!

    I posted under the "Authenticate This" thread, with pics. I would love to hear any thoughts!
