So guys, it has been dry for about a month and a half in my area. I came across this "Hermes" bag today that I want your opinion on. I question whether or not it is real. Any insight would be amazing!
"Fuck You" tie is ebay money all day long.
@Doomsticks , you might have just doubled my profit. I decided to try a quarter scoop of oxy instead of dish soap on the scarves since I'm only into them for $6 total. They looked great coming out of the wash. I'll post before and after pics when they are dry. Thanks a TON for the tip.
Also, a big shout out to @bpk1 for the badasss St. Alban's tweed. I need to take up the sleeves about an inch, but it's a great fit everywhere else, and I absolutely love it. I'm going to be looking out for you, dude.
I LOVE THIS THREAD!
It's fucking sick, that's what it is.

I'd say just based on the stitching fuckups it's fake, but that would be the only way Id know how to authenticate it. Know nothing about Hermes leather.
I don't know that much about Hermes Bags / Luggage, but have come across 1 fake purse before. Usually the hardware and stitching is what gives it away... and of course a shitty lining.
The leather has a nice grain, and the hardware has the right "Look"... Cant tell how heavy duty they are from photos though. But yeah some of the stitching looks a bit off. Also the main flap on that bag... The way it's cut seems slightly off. What's the inside lining like?
I like how you / your wife find items in your area with the LuxeSwap tags still on it. Those are people buying it on eBay, and then donating it right?
Ahh I didn't look closely at this thingy, but it doesn't look right for the quality of Hermes. The lettering / details look kinda crude on the inside. I bet this was molded. I'm thinking that Hermes engraves those details into their hardware.
If you happen to live in a big city where they actually have an Hermes store, you should go in there and examine the quality levels of their bags. There's an Hermes store in Bellvue, WA that I've been meaning to visit for quite some time now.
