Hi ladies (and gents?), This is my first post so please bear with me for being so blonde! I did see this topic in a thread on the reference tab, but it didn't really help me as I am such a novice and need things explained to me like a child. Anyway, I am an avid Chanel and Louis Vuitton collector and understand every date code or tag on those things. But ... the tags on my lone Balenciaga bag are another story. I can't make heads or tails of them and I was hoping someone could decipher and tell me what they mean. The bag is a smaller brown leather bag with hand straps and a shoulder strap, what I believe is called the "motorcycle" style though I'm not sure because I haven't been avidly following the label. The front of the tag (the silver rectangle) says, under BALENCIAGA.PARIS: "No. 2719W" and under that on the third line says: "103208." On the back of the tag, on the leather in a smaller font, it says: "1669" and below that it says "made in italy." What does it all mean?
