Diesel "Spare Parts" Messenger Bag - HELP!

First off, sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place.

I found this bag on eBay, with a single stock photo to describe it. It looked good, and even though it's express mail from Shanghai, China, I figured I'd buy it anyways since previous buyers of the same bag said they liked it. I bought it for like $40, and it arrived today. The overall quality is really good. But I can't tell if it's a fake or not.

Does Diesel even make this bag? I googled "Diesel Spare Parts" and couldn't find anything. If so, is this one real? Inside the box, it was shipped inside a large plastic bag that says diesel spare parts on it. No idea.

Thanks for the help!

most likely fake if the seller is selling multiples of this bag then it is for sure - I am not familiar w/ this exact bag but over all it does not look right - logo tags etc look incorrect compared to other bags I have seen. Can you post some tag pics. Should have a tag inside the bag w/ microstitch.

I can't find a tag anywhere with microstitching on it (I'm assuming it would look like the tag in their jeans). The only tag I can see is on the outside, it's red and says "diesel spare parts" on it. Definitely no microstitching.

I guess I bought a fake :/ I was kinda figuring it would be.... either way it's a great bag and pretty high quality regardless. I guess I can take off the "diesel" badges and stuff.

Is this where you got it?
_Wherever_ Men's Canvas Shoulder Bag(D1K) - eBay (item 170373657483 end time Aug-25-09 22:08:14 PDT)

I know these have to be fake, but Ive been diggin the shit out of them and for 30 bucks....Ive really been thinking about pulling the trigger. I think this seller has some without the diesel tags so I was eying them.

Why support a seller who sells fakes? Return that crap and do a paypal dispute. Buy a real bag ... or a buy a different brand.

that was actually the way I was leaning with that statement. The "Wherever" brand.... I mean, I prob wont, because Im impatient and I dont like waiting for 20+ days for something. I just like the way it looks.

I got it here:

DIESEL CANVAS MESSENGER BAG --- NEW 2009 - eBay (item 270439883251 end time Aug-14-09 20:59:54 PDT)

You're right, TreasureHoard. No way I want to be walking around with a fake bag... so tacky. I don't have a ton of cash to spend on a new one though. Any suggestions? I don't want crap from Officemax, lol.

And how should I handle a PayPal dispute? After filing it and mailing this thing back will I get refunded for the shipping? The seller paid $25 to ship it to me, which pretty much makes it not worth sending back if I can't get a return shipping refund.

EDIT: I was looking on Diesel's website and they have some pretty nice messenger bags... they're in the $100-$150 price range though (anything over like $60-$70 and I would rather buy jeans =P)

Remove the Diesel logo and use it as a brandless bag. I don't see the point of returning the bag if u have to pay some $20 to ship it back to China.

But yeah, fake Diesel bags are SOOOOOOO common in China.

Assuming I have to pay the return shipping, I think I just might do that. It's a pretty good bag, and I think it'll be OK without the Diesel stuff on it.

So it's been 3 days since I emailed the seller, no response. I just asked if they would refund me everything without me having to open a dispute... how much longer should I wait? And if I do choose to open a dispute, will I have to pay the return shipping, no refund on that?

A dispute is really more of an "official" form of communication between buyer and seller. All your messages to each other in the dispute are recorded, and will be reviewed by paypal if you decide to escalate it to a "claim". In a "claim", paypal gets involved and decides the matter for ya'll.

Typically, in a case of an item that was not as described...or counterfeit...they'll ask the buyer to return the item, and they'll credit your paypal account. Buyer has to pay return shipping, though.

If you're having problems, it's best to open a dispute ASAP, as you only have about 30 or 45 days or so after payment to open one. It usually gets the seller's attention too.

Not that it always does. I bought a 380 dollar piece of guitar equipment on ebay a few months ago. Three weeks passed with no communication or item, and I opened a dispute. Still no response after three days, and I escalated it to a claim. Still no response 7 days later, and paypal decided in my favor and gave me my money back. Pain in the arse.

Thanks for the help. I guess I'll just suck it up then and leave negative feedback - there's no point in returning it if I'm going to have to pay $25 just to ship it back.

You might be able to file a dispute and not ship it back. eBay has been doing this on some disputes lately. You should file either way.

AWESOME! I called eBay and all I said was that I was mailed a fake bag, and they refunded me purchase price + shipping... and they don't want me to send it back, either.

Thanks, TreasureHoard

Spare parts

hey there, I know this is an old thread but I can confirm that Spare Parts was indeed used by Diesel in early 2000's and maybe even before. Mostly, these products would be sold through places like Browns Shoes (B2) or the like. Places that were "trendy" and in direct competition with Diesel retail. I havent seen it around much lately, but I have a few bags that were from way back when. Price point didnt seem to vary much and I dont think it was ever branded as a sub-line but rather just used for the distinction. Anyway.. Cant see the photo as it is no longer up but you may have an authentic, yet obscure, bag
