Fall 2005 owners, I need your help. I bought a Taupe Stam from Barneys yesterday and I'm questioning its authenticity. The first thing that caught my attention was the sleeper bag. It is not as soft as my other MJ sleeper bags. The sleeper bag set off the alarm and when I started looking at the bag a little more closely the doubts crept in. I would GREATLY appreciate the help of anyone here who has a Fall 2005 Stam. Do the Fall 2005 Stams have a stabilizer built into the bag (between the lining and the leather)? My bag has a somewhat flimsy stabilizer at the bottom of the bag. I sold my 2006 black Stam so I can't compare with that one, but I don't remember such a thing in that bag. It could just be that I wasn't looking/feeling for it. Here are some photos of the Stam from Barneys. The flash on my camera overpowers the bag a bit, so the color appears much lighter than it is IRL. I hope this bag is real because I would hate to see Barneys selling fake merchandise. And apparently they had more than one taupe Stam available for sale.
