Montblanc Briefcase, Authentic Or Fake?

Hi everyone,

 

I recently purchased a used montblanc briefcase. I cant seem to find this specific model on the montblanc website or the internet and I wanted to know if this is authentic or not. I bought it on instagram and the seller has a huge selection of used bags of several brands.

 

The briefcase is quite heavy (empty) and is very well built. It has the aged leather smell on the outside and inside of the bag and the leather on the outside is already showing some damage (under the flap).

 

I would appreciate any thoughts on this.

 

Thanks.

Not authentic Montblanc. :(

 

Montblanc wouldn't print their brand name across the material of a bag like that, nor do they split the words Mont and Blanc with a logo in between them across one single line.

 

A quick look at the Montblanc web-site shows you how they print their brand name, plus the logos they put on their leather goods and on the material inside.

Like Chrissy said, it is obviously a fake, the logo is totally a bogus attempt to appear to be a genuine item.

+1 and I've had experience of both fake and genuine MB briefcases.

Sadly all the other brands could also be fakes ..... faking bags is a big business nowdays.

Indeed it is. It's a good trick to pretend they are "used" though. That means when they wear out within 5 minutes, the excuse is that it was "used."

 

To be absolutely honest, I would be amazed if the one pictured was even leather.

JohnDoe22- sorry that all of us folks here gave you some bad news. I would recommend that, if possible, you ought to return the briefcase to the seller, and get your money back. Best of luck.
