Hello! My friend wants to buy the beige calfskin and python silverado, however this bag has been very hard to find. I posted a bag she found on eBay in the authenticate this thread. In the meantime I have a few questions about the bag itself. We both have read that you can't treat python bags or get it wet but at the same time we read that it is a very durable bag and it's not as delicate as it sounds. However this is very confusing maybe someone can elaborate on this. We've found some very creative fakes impersonating the bags, python is a very difficult material to replicate because of the scales. In your opinion if you can see from the pictures the texture of the scales is it safe to say that it is authentic? Any comments would certainly help. By the way my friend is a PF member too (fashionchronic) she's my coworker and sitting in the desk right next to me, I have a few minutes break so Ifigured I could post on her behalf since the hunt for this bag has become a team effort thanks!
