I'm not really into that bag. If you are going to spend that much on a bag you should be able to wear it longer than one season. I doubt the furry handbag look will be back next fall!

For a price like that nup, because it's not versatile - it would even be too much for spring! Too fashion-y and faddish. And sorry but I have to agree about the roadkill comment...

But isn't that bag also made from an animal? What's the difference between carrying a fur bag and a leather or crocodile bag?

i dont know
but the gucci bag just looks more "Dead" and fury and more obvious that it is made from animal
to people who doesnt know about the croc bag, the croc bag can be made from "plastic" to make like croc
so i guess u r less likely to be approached by PETA
hehehe...

If you ring an English speaking Gucci store they could probably tell you what the control number is from.

To avoid this kind of problem, I think everyone should buy their designer goods from a liscensed dealer or a designer store.

Somewhere out there someone is getting the real McCoy for half the price though.

BRAVOOOO.
cause there is never a 100% possibility to get a REAL bag just by seeing it on a picture

But is it really worth it? SOMEONE is getting a real one, but most people are getting scammed.

All I can say is that people should beware of all sites without a good reputation and sites like eBay should warn their users more clearly of scams and publish details of how to shop safely.

Okay, okay people!

Now that's off all our chests can we give this poor guy some help? He's feeling bad enough without us rubbing salt in.

My advice:

Get pictures of the real labels and check they are in the same places on yours. Compare the size of the writing also.

Check the hardware. Does it feel like real brass/steel/whatever?

Does the bag look cheap?

How good is the quality of the stitching?

Find some pictures of the real dustbags and compare the ones you got with yours.

Ring Gucci and ask them if the control number is genuine.

Check the bag against a picture against a BonaFide one and make sure it's identical.
