I just received a Zilli tie from the same seller today (Zilli is a French label that specializes in extremely fine leather goods like jacekts and wallets, though I have found their shirts to be among the best RTW I have ever had). While I don't own any other Zilli ties, and thus cannot comare it, I would have to say that if it is a fake, it is still an extremely nice tie regardless of the label on it. Also, as I said in an earlier post, Zilli is not that well known, so while you might fake a Brioni label, you are unlikely to fake a Zilli label. If that is true, it stands to reason that the Brionis are probably real. But then again, who knows?
