I'm interested in purchasing a new wallet. I've been perusing ebay and have taken a liking to Prada or LV wallet or two. But how do you spot the fakes? A lot of auctions seem to have stock photos. Do the forum detective skills extend to accessories?

Some friends and I got together and are interested in doing a group suit purchase out of New York City. Our goal is to purchase close to 120-150 suits at $500-600 a piece for about 30 or so people. In short, $90k or so worth of suits to be made. Does anyone know a tailor/tailors who are willing to rise to the occasion? Thanks in advance.
