Got this zegna tie early in my thrifting career without an embossed EZ on the interfacing. Does that mean likely a fake?

I had built mine a couple years ago and since I didn't know how to write efficient html, the simple looking table was a ton of lines, with style info attached to each line. After his question, I decided to look at how to use CSS to simplify this. As this was my first foray into CSS, I spent a bunch of time looking at tables and tutorials about tables.
