  1. When there's a line through the Chanel stamp on the inside of the purse? I've been looking at some bags on Ebay and noticed some of them have that. Thanks!!
  2. never seen that{?}
    Girls that have been to an outlet, is that what they do to outlet bags?
  3. maybe it was from an employee discount?
    Because that bag would never make it to an outlet.
  4. I've never heard of Chanel doing it, but some mid-range clothing designers do. I have an Ellen Tracy jacket that I got at Daffys that has a faint red line through the name tag, and I've seen it on other designer clothes there.

    I don't think I've ever seen this at a Chanel outlet. The wallet I bought at the NY outlet didn't have it either.
  5. Maybe they're display items? I have nooo idea. lol
  6. not sure about chanel, but i know that when there is some kind of seconds sale they mark the tag like in the picture to prevent returns/affect the resale value etc.

    i've also seen a taupe jumbo with a mark across it, apparently it was a gift to a stylist or something so that might be it as well.
  7. I saw this with a Tod's bag once and asked the SA there. He told me that there are a couple of reasons boutiques do that, often it is an employee that has purchased it on a sale plus employee discount deal which makes the item very discounted and they don't want the item brought back. Also he said that when items are being sent back after being marked down at the end of the season some boutiques allow the employees to buy the items at a low low price and they will cut or mark the tag. On shoes they will mark the inside of the shoe. It prevents any returns.
  8. they are slightly damaged or display goods gotten at a discount to prevent store returns.
  9. Yeah they do that to sale items so they can't be returned to a store for full price later on. For clothing, they might either put a line on the tag or cut it in half.
  10. I didn't think Chanel allowed anything damaged to be sold. I heard they are destroyed.
  11. ^^My Chanel nor my NM marks an interior tag when an item is sold on sale.
  12. This is just general for a lot of companies, not necessarily Chanel.
  13. Yeah, they're a lot like LV in that respect.
  14. Hey Duri, I called the Chanel Outlet in NY in Woodbury. They do not put a line through their labels and they do not sell seconds. I am very interested in knowing the answer as well. Have you asked the seller directly what the origin of the bag is?
