i got the same one in a darker tan color and i must admit that those are everywhere and a lot of fakes are around? in fact most of the ones i see are fake
i got mine as a gift and cannot guarantee its 100% authenticity either

Is this the bag? If so check closely.
yes that is the bag... for the most part it looks like that but since i got it in the beidge it has a tan handle... the brass where it says gucci looks idetical and the stitching looks very uniform.. but the inisde of the bag is what bothers me and is why i say it looks cheep im used to seeing like a coach bag with a large tag on the inside stating whatever it says.. but this has a small tan peice of leather saying gucci made in italy... but on the reverse side it has a 9 digit serial #

this is a picture of the bag i purchased

now i know how most of you frown uppon buying things over the internet the shop the bag was ordered from had all this 100% authenticity guarantee... only reason im bugging out is becasue i saw another bag but the handle was a different color... but also the fabric was the same color as the bag that PrinceOfCats posted

The zip look right does it? (zips are hard to fake)

P.S. The bag wasn't $119 was it?

It doesn't really look right to me.

The zip is a bit wobbly, the fabric just looks drab somehow and isn't the least bit aligned. But maybe Gucci doesn't really bother about alignment? (The original posted isn't perfectly aligned either...) The colour combo of the leather/fabric looks odd. Also, the leather and zip colours don't match.

I'm no Gucci expert, my gut tells me it's fake. It could be authentic I guess.

The Gucci metal plate appears to be placed higher on the original?

Also, compare the two lines of stitching next to the zip between the two bags.

I'm not too fond of either one. The first one does say weekend get-away. The second says bling-bling, business as usual.
