I have a Dooney & Bourke AWL briefcase that I’m not sure if it’s authentic. I looked at your website and didn’t see anything exactly like it.
Thank you, Christine
It is counterfeit. We did have one on our site but if you were looking in briefcases, it was not there because it is a tote so was in the tote section. The counterfeiters were trying to copy the R41 Shopping Tote. Here is a photo of an authentic tote and if you click on the photo, it will take you to a page that shows more photos and provide details.
Some of the telltale signs that your bag is a fake – compare with the authentic one:
Overall quality of materials and workmanship
The handles should be two toned
The handles should be removable
The interior should not be lined
The interior should have a number of pockets.
Remember, you can always buy authentic Dooney & Bourke bags on our website.
