    It even has [an] original retail tag on it from Saks Fifth, doesn't say the original price.

    I dig those shoes. I never find good shoes, and own zero pairs of monkstraps.

    Well Michael Graves was the designer of it, beyond that, not too sure. Looks like the back says base metal, and Hong Kong... Apparently it's a piece he did in the 90's for Target.

    Very pleased with the shoes but stumped on maker. Before going to the RL thread figured someone here might know.
    Thanks

    Hoping someone might be able to authenticate or (a word for to prove a fake?).

    My fiancé has been hinting at wanting something LV and embraces thrifting so I figured it might be worth a shot. Nothing really makes me think it is fake, most details seem to be there, my only question was the imprinting of the name on the interior seems "shallow". But, then again, maybe that is just from use and the other leather being pressed on around it.

    Just read one other thing that has be doubtful, the tag. It sounds like LV uses these paper stock card, but does not use the string and logo that is attached to it.

    Any help is appreciated!

    I am Finally getting around to trying to photo some of the cool stuff I got left from previous hauls. Man this lighter is so cool. Its called the "Oscuro Maduro". Odds are you are not supposed to have one of these for the price I paid.

    No expert, but can you provide close ups of both sides of the strap where it folds around the buckle attachment to the bag? The strap should have a finished look at the attachment.
