Come on, really if it were fake, would they weave in the wrong factory code? Anyhow, show us the tip color and the way it was folded, that will tell you. I have a woven (not print), that is way funky, but 100% real in the same way...
So, is the sizing on BB website for this particular shoe in US or UK sizing? If its UK, im going to do this.

Yes, I can, Its kind of an odd gift I have developed. The following makers are locks for me to tell by seeing buttonholes: St. Andrews Kiton Attolini (non handsewn and handsewn) Isaia (again both machine and hand) Caruso I hate to admit the time I have put into it, but its true!
PATINA damn it. Its gonna happen.
Attolini for sure. Very beautiful coat! You are lucky!
Some of the pants have been made by incotex, so those are good. The shirts are cut like tents from great fabric and nice buttons.
I think Partenopea also has made some for Sartorio. I have an Attonlini Sartorio, I may be able to tell if I saw the button holes.
Actually, my kids pull on the back hem of my shirts all the time. I had a gusset blow on an Isaia shirt over Christmas. I suppose it served a purpose from the shirt tearing?
