While searching for some info on the bag I bought, I ran across a site called AAA Replicas. I have also been watching a couple of "authentic wallets" on eBay. If you look at this site, you will see very common styles that are being sold on eBay and other sites as authentic. These replicas look pretty good on the website - I wouldn't know til I had one in my hand. They claim to use the same materials, etc. as the manufacturer. The only difference is they state that they are mirrors or replicas. However, I believe some people have purchased these and are trying to pass them off as authentic. They even come with the cards, bags, etc. I thought it was illegal to do something like this but apparently not. Either way, maybe looking at this site first will help in making a decision.
