So I received an MMM 5-zip in the mail that I won off of eBay and I'm having some doubts as to it being real or not. This seems like an appropriate thread to ask about it - if not, please direct me to another thread where it is.
It was originally beige, but was dyed a dark brown. So I'm not sure if that's the reason why it feels really weird of leather, almost pleather like. There's also no real leather smell either. Since it's calf, I know it's not supposed to feel as soft/smooth/supple as lambskin, but from what I remember compared to the calfskin black 5zip I tried on at a Barney's once, this isn't anywhere near as soft/smooth either. But again, could be due to the dye, so I'm not sure.
Would take it to a department store and ask, but there's no high end store that carries MMM here as far as I know. Was thinking perhaps a cobbler would be of some help?

I really appreciate all the help you guys can give!

Anyone here an expert? Either an AW06 in brown with Riri zips, an AW08 with regular zips in black - both calf. Or possibly a newer season one. I have a lot of black leathers, so the brown might be nice, but the 5-zip does look good in simple black. Hmm!
edit: Here's the color of the brown
