Hi everyone, I received my Coach Black leather Planner from eBay today and I think it may be a fake! This is last season's style (or a couple of season's)- plain Black leather with the button closure, size 4x7. I am not an 'expert' on fakes but I have had the opportunity to examine many fakes when I was in Hong Kong (where they carry 'excellent' quality fakes) so I *think* I have a good sense of what a fake looks/feel/smell like upon inspection. Not sure if anyone knows what I mean, but the fakes actually have a distinct smell and feel; the leather is not supple soft and the smell almost smells like vinyl (?). I have a Coach black leather wristlet and a black leather briefcase and both items do NOT have this strange vinyl smell. Anyhow, my feeling of this Planner is fake…. but truthfully, I am not completely sure and I don’t have any concrete proof to support it. If it’s a fake, it seems to be one of those A+++ fakes. The Planner came with an Outlet Gift receipt and the serial tag. This seller is a Power Seller located in the U.S. and has sold many Coach Planners (and other items) and has a 99.9% positive feedback. The quality of the receipt and serial tag seems to be fine as I have other authentic Coach Outlet receipts to compare it with. Everything else seems fine too including the stitching. It is only the feel and smell of the leather that makes it peculiar. My question is: What can I do about it? Am I too paranoid? Should I bring it to a Coach store to have them authenticate it for me? I’m not even confident that the Coach SAs are knowledgeable enough to authenticate it. This is my 1st purchase on eBay and it is disappointing that I end up questioning the item. I’ve been searching for a plain black Coach Planner and eBay was my only hope since the closest outlet to me doesn’t have this style anymore. =( ANYWAY - Does anyone have this same Black leather Planner with the button closure? Can you describe what certain small features should look like? Does yours have a vinyl-like smell? -The button hardware on mine has Coach inscripted on it 2 times - black button closure with ‘Coach est 1941’ written 2 times. -Says ‘Made in China’ on the interior -Has the Coach logo on the back cover. Thanks for listening and for any advice!
