Dear all, I am actually in search of an online shops which sell the Belstaff 556 bag. I came across this site offering this unreal discount price for the bad as well some many Belstaff jackets.

http://www.belstaffjackets.co.uk/bel...brown-p-2.html

I just wonder if anybody has dealt with them? The prices are just too good to be real!?!?


Any suggestions?

Yes, they're fake. HAve cropped up on the belstaff thread, too, but this site is as dodgy as they come.

Thanks! I did tried to search the net and heard that people are getting some knockoffs from China. I bet that this site is one them. Too suspicious.

Evem if we play Devil's Advocate for this site, I think it's prety clear that a genuine Belstaff site wouldn't be trying to sell a BABRBOUR INTERNATIONAL as a Belstaff.... especially one that has the realy, really obvious BARBOUR yellow patch still on it in its stock photo!

J. Crew sells the 556 bag...

FWIW, I actually bought the 556 and did like it at all. Wound up returning it and getting a Filson 232 medium field bag which was not only cheaper (more than 1/2 the price) but actually MUCH better made. Here is a review I wrote...
