We have a team of in-house authentication experts who authenticate and review the condition of every item we sell. If an item doesn't meet our high standards and we can't guarantee its authenticity, we won't accept it. Each item in our inventory undergoes a rigorous, multi-point inspection process. This begins with a thorough inspection done by hand. We conduct extensive research and inspect the item's material and workmanship. We examine any tags, labels, logos, hologram stickers, date, and/or serial codes and identify the time period of each piece. Important to know is that we also work with partners that help us to verify the authenticity if we feel even a minimum insecure about the originality.

2. INSPECTION OF MATERIALS
Authentic designer pieces are known for fine workmanship. Logos, prints, stitching, and quilting are closely examined and compared to ensure they match up with the designers' standards for quality and craftsmanship. When we examining a product, we look for consistent and precise hand-stitching as one identifier of authenticity.
Products are examined for evidence that any hardware used is accurate in weight and color. Fonts and markings are all triple-checked under magnification for accuracy. Proper measurements and lining specifications are confirmed for each item. Each designer uses details that are unique to its brand.
