I just double checked the shipping address for my gray field game and it was from Katy, TX. Now I'm kind of worried.

It looked good to me. Did you buy it off eBay?

^ She's the same seller from Katy, TX. I've never bought from her but she's known to sell copies (particularly of the popular Blooming Lattice cardigan).

I suspected something was up since all of a sudden there were TONS of Field Games in multiple colors all over eBay -- all from her

Yeah, how would you tell?? It's not fair to pay $80+ for a fake copy.

Same here. Both my cardigans came from EA (but the sellers said they bought them from a B&M Anthro) and they both came NWT

I'll post a pic and tell you what I'm talking about

The "Made in China" tag is NOT supposed to be sewn all the way across. It's just supposed to have two stitches in them like the Charlotte tag



See how the stitching on the tag goes all the way across? That's not like that on both of mine I own the gray and navy one

^yes, exactly.
i have ct cardigans that have tags sewn straight across like that, but they're cardigans w/the pink tags and they came directly from charlotte tarantola.
all of my anthro ct cardigans have tags sewn on with two stitches.

I just checked my red one and it's just tacked too. Also the font is different on the "made in China" tag and no visible stitching down the side of the Charlotte tag.

i wanted to add that the lace looks a bit off; it looks shoddy (talking about the one pictured in the auction). also, the font on the care tag isn't quite right.

Now I'm worried. I don't want to spend $80 on a fake. I took some pics of the tags and lace. I'm on my way to class so I can't post them quite yet but I will in a moment. Thanks guys.


ETA: Here are the pics. Sorry they're so big. I'm on my phone so it's kind of a hassle resizing.

I got home not too long ago and my bf and I compared the gray one with my navy one. We're almost positive it's fake.

Awww I'm so sorry Katty That is so ridiculous! I don't understand why that seller has gotten away with selling knock-offs! She has like one negative feedback and the rest are all positives! Is the fake cardigan pretty much identical to the real thing?

Thanks everyone. <3 I was so excited for it.

Jen, they're pretty similar at first glance but once we started to actually look at the small details, it became pretty obvious. The overall construction of the collar is entirely different and the lace was done rather sloppily. I took some comparison pics.


Sorry for hijacking the thread.

I just saw this
So sorry it ended up being fake! Hopefully you can get your money back without any problems!
I always see her auctions and wondered if her stuff was legit or not. Guess I know now

Thanks guys! I purchased mine from the seller vvnlyu. It was the only one she had so I thought it was on the safer side.
