Legit left one of those a year or two back. Believe me, I learn from my mistakes. Never again! Prolly won’t see one again either way. Haha.

Along with my late 60s E find, I got a few other things that were pretty decent.
This one has me intrigued. Passes all the quality sniff tests based on quality in hand and the various authentication guides on this particular model (Evvvelyne III). Date stamp puts it as 2011 production. They use a weird makers ID stamp system so not sure how to verify the maker stamp is a legitimate ID. The stampings are as good/messy as most of the supposedly authentic ones pictured online, assuming the leather texture makes it nearly impossible to get a super clean stamping every time. It measures correct size in all aspects, too. Thoughts? My apologies for the absolutely horrific photo skills...

that stamps doesn’t look quite clean enough for Hermès, but I could be wrong.
Have you seen this link? https://realstyle.therealreal.com/real-hermes-evelyne-authentic-genuine/

Fingers crossed it checks out!

Could just be the angle of the pic, and the curves of the leather, but the punch holes don't look evenly spaced in this shot. Specifically near the intersections of the H crossbar.

No Hermès handbags here but good, solid finds.

Pop on Flint & Tinder and Wallace & Barnes. NWT Marine Layer long sleeve t-shirt.

LL Bean shawl neck wool sweater. This is kind of a personal grail for me, had one years ago and I either lost it or it was stolen, not sure, Found a NWT one from the 80s a few months ago that fits my son, finally found an XL for me! That’s what’s great about thrifting — I can get as big a kick from things like this as from finding Alden, Cucci, etc.
