    Hi everyone -

    We have a new set up for Authenticating Jimmy Choo items. This includes handbags, wallets, cosmetic cases and footwear. This will be helpful to keep the threads easy to navigate, easy to respond to, and be better for all involved.

    Before you post in the Jimmy Choo Authenticate This thread here: http://forum.purseblog.com/jimmy-choo/authenticate-this-jimmy-choo-please-use-proper-format-214868.html , you NEED to read the rules!!!! This will make it easier for EVERYONE and really make the chance of you getting your question answered much better.

    Please follow the following rules:
    Before you submit a request for authentication, please search this thread to make sure that the item has not previously been authenticated. This is not a thread to ask general questions about Jimmy Choo, please refer to our reference section for such information. Finally, do not submit requests for something that is obviously a fake, e.g. the item says it is a replica, or a $50 Ramona.
    This is a free service, but it is imperative that you help our authenticators by using the following format:

    Item Name:
    Listing number:
    Seller name or ID:
    Working Link:
    Comments:

    Pictures we need for authentication requests are clear close-ups of all logos, logo plates, zippers, zipper pulls, lilac ribbon, lining, and hardware. In addition, views of sides, front, back, top, inside and bottom are needed. Do not post requests for item that do not have sufficient pictures.

    Authenticators are not required to answer every request, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.
    Authenticators may also request additional pictures and/or information in order to assist with authentication. Please remember, it is always useful to have several close up pictures when submitting an item for authentication.
    Please do not intervene to confront a troll or rudeness on the boards, just use the REPORT function (button) to alert the mods, and let them handle it from there. In the meantime, just ignore the poster until a mod can intervene.
    Always be respectful when you post and treat others as you expect to be treated. This is an open thread and everyone is welcome to participate.
    Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.

The evaluations posted by tPF's members are only opinions that stem from personal experiences as shoppers and collectors.

  2. It seems that we are having some issues with format compliance. I thought I would perhaps spell out more clearly the reasons why the standardized format is required:

    1. Allows authenticators and requesters to see all information laid out in a clear and concise manner, upfront, without wading through links to find out information.

    2. Allows requesters to easily see if the items have been previously requested, when doing a search. Searches will pick up item numbers, and this is what requesters should be searching for.

    3. Allows both authenticators and requesters to mentally note important information, such as "That seller sells authentic" or "Seller XXXX is a problematic seller."

    4. Reduces duplications of requests which clutters the thread and takes up unnecessary time and space.

    5. Respects the personal time and effort authenticators take to answer requests.

    I hopes this helps.
    PM me if you need further clarification.
     
  3. Hi

    I foolishly purchased a bag at the wekend from a dress agency as an authticate Jimmy Choo bag but a friend told me it is fake and thatnkfully the agency are taking appalled and takingi t back. Thing is I relly would like to buy this bag as I like it but have searched everywhere looking for it to find the real name. Can you please help identify the bag so I can go get one?

    This is not a thread for posting a request to identify a style. Please post your question in this thread: http://forum.purseblog.com/jimmy-choo-faqs-and-care-reference/identify-this-jimmy-choo-419074.html , along with better pictures, thank you ~jburgh
