It will be a great service to all. Ned Ned - Got your PM, thanks so much! Links already up on previous page - Enjoy! Bargs
I'll give you $250.

Hey guys, let's all vote for a real live 'niter, not one uh them deviders! My original thought for this posting was something along the lines of Ties as...
Quote: Originally Posted by nsoltz I concur. Ties are fake. If you want to PM me, I will give you the email of Zegna's intellectual property attorney. I imagine that he does not want to have it posted in a public forum. My recommendation would be to find a way to send the ties to Zegna for authentication and then see if they wish to bring postal fraud charges. If a counterfeit item was sent via USPS, there is postal fraud involved. He could also get the...

Quote: Originally Posted by pocketsquareguy I hate fakes. I believe the socially responsible thing to do is ask for your money back and report them to EBay and leave feedback warning others.

Quote: Originally Posted by amerikajinda I'd say instead of buying fake Zegnas or fake Burberrys or fake anything -- just go to Marshall's or TJ Maxx and get a no-name necktie for the same price ($15-$20) that is proudly made in China (or Italy) to pretty decent specifications. They now have 7-fold made-in-China ties for $20-$25 at those types of stores, and while they're a little bit "flat" -- they're still a decent value for the money if you're not...

Quote: Originally Posted by contactme_11 I'd say the one on the left is real, the one on the right looks questionable. For $30 I'd say they were worth it even if they are knockoffs. My guess is the opposite, but I'm with you being worth it at this point - Thanks...
