I just bought an LV bag for my G/F from Holt's and it has one side right side up and the other upside down.

The downtown Gucci store doesn't do authentication. I brought it to them and that's what they told me. If they have the same model, they'll bring it out for you to compare but they won't authenticate yours for you.

Same goes for the Holt Tiffany.

I was at Gucci and a lady was wearing a fake gucci watch and they started to question her and ask her wear she got the watch and omigod they made a whole scene and everyone was liek wtf so she got a fine and the watch was taken away. felt so bad for her, it was an old lady too.
I've seen Jessica Simpson hold an LV bag with the logo upside down before. Its hard to say but would she sport a fake bag? Somehow I don't think so because she's known for having a love for LV items and she's constantly in the public eye so I doubt she'll do anything that will ruin her reputation.

Yikes!!! I feel really bad for that old woman with the fake Gucci! She'll never be able to show her face in that store again. Imagine her humiliation in front of everyone! But seriously, why would you walk into a Gucci store with an imitation on you? Unless she didn't know that it was fake.

1) check the stitching carefully, if its a fake..then the stitching will be curved or slanted.
2) check the fabric cuts, if its a fake..the cuts will be slanted, curved or rough.
3) check the font and size they use to print the brand name.
4) check the buckle, fakes will have flaws such as bubbles, different buckle style and even the strap may be different.

hope this helps.

cheers!
joe

Basically, feel the texture of the leather and if the stitching is already frayed and the leather is cracked it's a fake.

Since this is already bumped up, when I bought my gucci bag the lady told me they dont issue authenticity cards, there's a serial # engraved into a little leather patch on the inside of one of the pockets

some fakes are also expensive, and have been professionally made. you cant always tell so easily. theres cheap $10 handbag knockoffs, then theres $200 handbag knockoffs that could fool just about anyone.

Follow the rules and post pictures in this forum. The experts will help you authenticate it.

http://forum.purseblog.com/gucci/aut...ng-607932.html


Also, Gucci/LV/Hermes etc. boutiques will not authenticate something for you unless you have a good relationship with the SA or they are nice enough to tell you quietly. It is against their policy.
