I found the stamp inside the pocket and it's AR0080, so mfg 2000. This has the alcantara lining so I can't see the back of the rivets. I also looked at the big rivets and I don't see any king of stamp. Do you have a pic? I would love to give it to my wife so I am going to take into the store and see about repairs, and hopefully they should tell me if it is authentic. Thanks everybody for the info. This thread is the shit!
