These are some more of the pictures that were on the website. I bought the purse off of iOffer for almost $200.

I couldnt get any pictures that were worse than this, I hope they arent too close up to where it would cause a problem like what Taitai was mentioning. These are the photos that were on iOffer though, so they would be visible to anyone. I recieve the purse in the mail on monday, so I dont have it yet. I read on another post that I should be able to tell whether it is real or not based on the feel of the leather.

^^^ That round small tag with the string is worrisome...I've never seen that before.

Does it seem to be a decent enough replica...if that is the case? I have seen the round tag with the string before, but that might be something that you were talking about earlier, with fakes copying each other. There might be several fakes with that kind of tag. Also what worries me is the obvious white stitching, on real bottega bags there is not any obvious thread lines like that. That is of course if it isnt real, which i am beginning to think now that it might not be since so many other people are agreeing that it's authenticity is questionable...

The white stitching seems a bit uneven as well, which may not be a good sign.

I think it boils down to the quality of the leather. Is it very soft and perfectly structured, even inside? The suede inside should be of the highest quality as well.

I can't tell from the pics if it's a good replica. The thing I've discovered with BV bags is that while fakes can copy the weave, it is really difficult to replicate the softness and sheen of the real thing so it becomes fairly easy to spot a fake in real life.

well I get the bag on monday, so I will be able to tell then. Hopefully I will get my moneys worth! But yeah you are right, the only way to tell is by the quality of the leather. Thanks for all the info though! I will be sure to post on monday and inform you if it is a real or not.

iOffer sells fake bags. And if you purchased it for $200 there is no way that it is real. I can't remember what the exact price on this bag is, but I think it's definitely over $1500.

Is the interior on the Cocker black? I think that most BVs have cream suede interiors, not black.

That bag is a fake for sure! If they said it was authentic then they are lying.

I agree, it is most definitely a fake.

The cocker only came in blue, white, brown, and reptile. I haven't seen black. and it's retail is $1780. And it's quite a big bag. You can't tell from the pics, but it's a nice size.

The shiny hardware is a dead giveaway. Also, the stitching is not right.

Oh, and there's a little cell-phone pocket inside! (as well as a zip pocket along one side) And thanks maylo and nizlay for the reassurance!

surprise surprise! I got in the questionable bottega cocker bag today and the bag i recieved looks nothing like the picture online. it's better. the leather is the softest i have ever felt, bottega veneta is written on the inside, the suede is silky, and the metal is gunmetal not shiny. if it is a fake it is the best fake i have ever seen, or it is real....either way i am satisfied with my purchase. yay

The Cocker was made in Black. I tried it on at the BV boutique and I almost bought it.
