This is authentic and it's from the turn of the century.Early to mid 90'sI have never seen a manufacturer tag for Zegna like that, but based on the label it could be that old. I have 0 experience with that one.
No one could authenticate anything based on that photo. Labels and manufacturer's tags are ideal, although some items can be verified by detailed fabric shots (such as hermes ties)
Versace Collection is a diffusion line. It seldom uses the Medusa branding and is often made in Turkey, Croatia etc. This looks pretty real to me.
Armani Jeans will use the eagle as well, sorry for the confusion there (i'm not as familiar with that nor Armani Exchange). But 'Giorgio Armani' does not use the eagle. Any logo that says Giorgio Armani and uses the eagle is fake as hell.
[[SPOILER]] Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake. Giorgio Armani logo doesn't use the Eagle, only the diffusion line Emporio Armani does. Jackets like that would unlikely be released under black label, more likely A/X, Jeans, Emporio or maybe Collezioni. Very fake, do not buy.
Tom Ford suits have an aggressive cut. For a number of bases I find I have to size down. I don't have a lot of experience with the fits (what TF calls bases now) but I definitely wouldn't be surprised if a 46 was inline with a generous 42. It's always better to let measurements guide you rather than size tags.
I know this is an older post, but like Coxsackie, I caught up on this thread yesterday and this still sticks in my craw.I respect Matthew Fan a lot, he's an institution here (he's an emoticon for fuck's sake) and is quite knowledgeable and shown a mastery of CBD and style in general. That said, this disparaging attitude of how "it's all gone down hill" is something I'm quite tired of seeing. In particular the phrasing "the utility of this forum has drastically declined"...
The label looks real, and should be very recent (I believe that's the current couture label). I'd need to see the manufacturer tag to be certain though.
[[SPOILER]] Fake. Also, they're women's sunglasses (if that makes a difference). The fakers did a reasonably good job, but still pretty sloppy. They included a real model number, but the model they stamped it with doesn't match what style they are (I don't know women's glasses enough to tell if they've duped a real prada model, or just stamped a random fashion). Also, the blurring on the prada logo on the lens is probably to fool filtering software for copyright...
I'll start with the good news: they're real. The bad news is: Gucci can be, and frequently is, hella tacky.
