hello all, I purchased this about a week ago. I question the authentcy of the bag and need some help! I posted a thread 2 nights ago freaking out. BUt i have calmed down since then. So your eyes will definately help me! What really questioned me was the quality of the bag. Alot of the seams came off the bag and has been frayed. Pictures are posted in the attachments. And notice in picture 7, it seems like the seams has been burnt, to hide some of the 'broken seams'. This is also in alot of places around the bag. Also, I purchased a med size paddy but returned it. I remember the med size paddy, the paint that wrapped around the leather was flawless. But on this baby paddy, the gray paint seem to come onto the leather I'd say 80% of the bag. I also posted a picture of the lining. Other then these faults, the bag looks legit. The leather looks good. But I just need reassurance! My goal of posting this thread is to know that this bag is authentic, if not I need to return it to the seller. I really really really like this bag and I can definately live with those seams coming off if this bag is authentic. If its authentic than I'll just have to live the thought that exspensives bag can come off 'bad' in quality. Pictures I posted Are the biggest faults. Your opinions are appreciated! Background on the bag: The seller purchased the bag Thru ALOHARAG.com back in OCT2005. I have not use this bag yet until I get this cleared!
