IMPORTANT READ-ME

Please see post #1 for complete Balenciaga authentication rules. All requests must be posted in this thread. Authentications are not done via private message or in any other thread.

See the link below for examples of the photos needed and the format they should be in (clear, close up, forward-facing, no angles, right way up, no bends in tags).

http://www.louisvuittonbag.net/threads/required-pics-for-balenciaga-authentication.741442/

A link to the listing in question is required.

It is an authenticator’s right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format. If the listing you are interested in is missing photos it is your responsibility to request them from the seller prior to posting in this thread.

Thanks and be well!

Hi,
I bought this bag years ago from ebay that I cant even find the transaction in the history to provide seller's name but I have always question the authenticity hence barely used it. Hoping you can help to authenticate. Thank you.
Item: Balenciaga Chevre Briefcase
Where purchased or how obtained : Ebay years ago
Comments: Chevre briefcase is the closest I can match based on the design of the bag. There is only 1 image on google that I can match to. The label is stitched down on all 4 sides

Are you sure the tag is attached on all four sides to the lining? Try flipping it up to see if there is info on the tag back. A pic of the bag in it's entirety and a close up of the a rivet would also be helpful.

Well the colour certainly looks better in these pics. Can you post a photo of a rivet? It's the notched screw that holds the handles on. And can you search very carefully for another leather tag somewhere with style and colour code on it? There should be one somewhere.

Authentic in my opinion, F/W 2011 bleu paon. I see a listing Fashionphile has that calls a similar bag a briefcase tote but I don't know if that's a Bal name for it. The only anomaly I see is the lack of a logo on the back of the zipper head. Can you check any other zipper heads? The little front pocket and any interior pocket?

Agreed. Thats what threw me off as well. Theres no interior pocket. The structure is exactly the same as the one on Fashionpile but it does not come with the mirror. I have bought my other balenciaga from the store or Barneys and this is the first I bought online (duh..just because I dont see this design in store).t the back of the zipper head is all plain (opening and pocket in front) like the image I post. But I do thank you for kicking my rear to look for the other label...this bag was 10 secs away from being hauled out LOL

The other details look fine though. Let's bring a couple more people into this just to check. @ksuromax , @peacebabe, any comments?

Hello,
I would be very grateful for an opinion regarding authenticity of this City S bag for peace of mind? Bought it on Vestiaire collective, but I am aware of issues with their authentication... so just wanted to see what the experts here thought :smile:

I’ve included pics of the mirror, apologies if too many pics!

Also if you could tell me what year it is from (I think maybe S/S19?), name of hardware (is it gunmetal?) and leather this is? I thought the croc prints were made of calfskin (based on the older Classic City croc print bags), but this model is advertised as lambskin on net-a-porter and mytheresa... it does seem softer/less structured than I’d expect calfskin to be, but at the same time I like the more subtle croc print look.

If the second query is better posted in the Identify tag my apologies, please let me know and I’ll move it.

Thank you in advance!
