Porosus croc has much smaller grain. This looks like cheap plastic. Also, the overall shape of the bag is just "off" hard to explain. Go to the croc auctions by montecarloclub or CDL or mightkismet to compare.
Right-O. Hermes always tries for balance in the scales or grain patterns in leather bags. Symmetry is key for Hermes. My SA said they spend hours finding just the right size pieces to form the planes of the bag.
Gigi, my thought's exactly - looks like those Dooney and Bourke embossed leather "croc" bags.
I know I am late on commenting, but this was so fake! The back looked awful on the bag. IT was nowhere near symmetrical and just horrible looking. When you see an authentic it is perfect...you have no doubts. This seller made some fast money and is layghing all the way to the bank. Then her comment was...the box is damaged and costs too much to send. PLEASE...she should throw the box in for free and be thankful.
