Hello Authenticators, please kindly authenticate this NYC red Rambler. Seller wasn’t sure if it is real but I am fairly comfortable with it. And I waited till the bag is shipped just in case… It is a beautiful red color. Thank you very much.
Seller: elainecruz2570

It's DEFINITELY real, and I'm Definitely jealous! Loves me some reds - enjoy it!

(BTW, if you think of it, could you measure the strap end to end when you get a chance? Someone mentioned a while back that they'd seen longer straps on Ramblers other than the stock 43-inch version. Mine is 48 inches end to end and I wonder if there actually are others out there. That extra 5 inches makes a big difference. :giggle: )

Thank you very much. I am super excited. It is in transit right now, I will measure the strap as soon as I received it.
ETA: I hope the strap is 48” too, I prefer long straps for crossbody

Hi Authenticators,
I think this is a very poorly made fake. Please kindly take a look at it, thanks.
Seller: tinybeauty14
ETA: I can’t wipe the image out of my mind, my eyes feel hurt too. Don’t remember ever saw one as lousy as this.

Dear Authenticators,
I found this dark green leather bag at a thrift store. Is it genuine? Thanks so much!

You're correct. Did you happen to google the serial number?

ETA: The seller also has this fake "brand new" LV bag for $90. It's listed without brand name and in the item specifics, she calls the brand "boutique."

ETA #2: The fake coach from tinybeauty14 has a really clear picture of the creed showing mistakes in addition to the invalid number.

Note: marXings and full "crain" leather. It might also say "wrinXles" but the angle of the picture doesn't show whether it's a K or X. There's also a lack of punctuation.
