  1. my 05 is narrowed
  2. Ok, so if 05, 06 and 07 are narrowed, maybe it was just a particular style?

    The plot thickens...:roflmfao:
  3. harhar if theres one thing ive learned with paddies...there are inconsistencies with the materials they use and the heat stamping etc etc so i dont know...i'd honestly love to hear the senior authenticators view on this...why not have it posted on the atc thread so they can give their POV on it :biggrin:

  4. I think....we will need more photos before we could try that.
    As I've recently learned, one feature doesn't prove a bags authenticity. Unless it's the keyhole placement of course! :graucho:
  5. ^^harhar thats the ultimate tell of a fake paddy :tdown:

  6. That and the artificial, plastic leather....yuck! I even seen one listed as an "authentic chloe" but listed as artificial leather? :confused1:

    Still, good to laugh at! :P
  7. My 06 has the narrowing!
  8. i have purchased a new 2008 season chloe( the one with the lucite padlock). i have to say the silver zip ting is narrower at the place where it attaches to the zip. Ah! at it has been bought at a high department store, therefore it is authentic
  9. Ah ha!:tup:
  10. I saw something about this not too long ago in either the Ref Lib, or ATC. Seems like zip rings were both ways, some narrowed, some not. Saw a paddy on E the other day, rings had GAPS, and the metal name plate actually had phillips-head screws in it. People bidding like mad.
  11. "A fool and his money are soon parted" If I am going to buy on ebay I am going to know what I am buying!! There are so many fakes!! It is almost unbelievable!
  12. I think that US ebay is way better than the uk ebay though! On the uk ebay it is really hard to find a bag that even looks like it could be authentic.
    It would be quite fun actually to start a thread where people post the worse fakes they've ever seen, that would be funny. I once saw one where it looked like the "chloe" on the padlock had been written on in pen, it was shocking and really ugly.
    I also noticed that alot of people are sly and take pictures from uk ebay and post on US ebay, One was actually a power seller who had stolen pictures on their listing!
    Seems like you can't even trust pictures anymore:sad:

  13. Quite true. It's scary! That's why I'll sometimes ask for a picture anyway, just to make sure they actually have the bag in the listing. I asked for more pics on a bag that looked real but I just wasn't sure of the seller, they sent me a link to the most disgusting fake I had ever seen. Plastic cow indeed! So glad I asked before I bid!
  14. Plastic cow!!:roflmfao::roflmfao:
  15. haha, I can't take credit for that, I think it was Lescoy that introduced us all to that wonderful phrase! :tup:
