Q:

Is my Coach purse real?

A:

The best way to determine if a Coach bag is authentic is to consider where it was purchased. Coach products are only available at Coach stores, Coach outlet stores, authorized department stores, official Coach websites and authorized third-party websites. Additionally, genuine Coach bags are well-made with quality materials.

There are other ways to tell if a Coach bag is fake. The dust bag that Coach uses is made of quality material that is chocolate brown in color. It uses a red drawstring, and the Coach logo is stamped in white. Examining the signature "C" logo on a Coach bag helps to determine if a Coach bag is authentic or fake. If the bag is held upright, the Cs should be in a straight line. If they're not, the bag is a counterfeit. Also, the logo tag that is commonly attached to a Coach purse by a beaded metal chain is made out of leather with raised lettering. It should always match the trim of the bag. Finally, authentic Coach bags have zippers with the "YKK" logo on them.

Coach encourages consumers who have encountered the sale of counterfeit products to make an anonymous report on the official Coach website or the Coach hotline.
