Hi there! Congrats on your purchase. To upload pics, try downloading the app for your phone (makes life much easier). Re the leather and whether the diamonds flow, if I understand your question correctly, there's definitely a break in the leather for the bottom and side potions. If you are worried about the authenticity of the bag, I would have take it to a place that can authenticate it for you.

Hope you enjoy it!

Flow onto the edges? That's not possible. It's a very small actually two small pieces joined together at the bottom bag connecting to the rest of the bag. Not all the quilts patterns can match.

+2. Selfridges wouldn't sell fakes.

Not all of the quilting aligns from the flap to the body of the bag. I know people have this preference but one of my bags, doesn't align.

I have a lot of trouble uploading pics too :sad: it's very disappointing.

Selfridges may not sell fakes, but that does not mean someone did not return a fake when and kept the real. This would bother me. why don't you exchange it for another one?

also its made in france which i love but i read somewhere there are no longer making cavier jumbo's in france. also my screws match almost (which again iv read somewhere they should not). all these things worry me a little. but when i did go into selfridges the other day to express my concerns they said there was nothing wrong so i feel like im over reacting!!

i just bought this bag from selfridges (i hope the pic has loaded)here's whats bothering me.. the lock screws match(i was under the impression they shouldnt) its made in france ( i was told that there were no longer making jumbo's in france) the diamond pattern doesnt match onto the sides and bottom of the bag. (by this i mean the pattern cuts off at the edge but doesnt carry on at the same point on the sides) (im re posting under a different named thread hoping more jumbo owners will see and advice) please help me.. can other people who have recently bought a jumbo check and see if this is normal????
