suits)?  I'm pretty sure Canali doesn't do logo stamping on the inside rear lining, especially not in a font that doesn't match their logo.  I think another poster here mentioned that his Dolce and Gabbana ties looked fake.
Yes, the D&G ones are undoubtedly fake. On real dolce ties : - the label is sewn vertically on the other end of the tie (the narrowest one) - the lettering is bad, if you are to forge a label, at least try to use the correct font ... - on real ties, there is a stamping on the lining, but again the font is bad, and there is no ® If this guy is selling fake dolce, why would its brioni be genuine ? OTOH, it doesn't mean the quality is crap... Luc

The type of silk in the singular Hermes tie the seller has does not resemble any sort of Hermes ties I have seen or owned. But does this not look like something unusually complex for a fake? For such an obscure label?

Anybody know what to look out for?  The Brioni tie that I purchased on eBay came today, and it is a beautiful and thick tie (thicker than any other tie I own), and it has the gold keeper.  Any Brioni experts know what to look for?  Thanks.
The Brioni ties I have seen usually have a self liner, with "Brioni" screened onto the liner at the back of the wide end of the tie. Also, the composition of the tie (100% seta) is screened onto the liner on the narrow end of the tie.

They check out on both of those.

Well, mine doesn't have a self liner (if that means the same exact silk as the front of the tie), but just one that matches very closely in color, but still with "Brioni" screened in. Also, the composition tag on this one is just a standard black tag attached to the liner.
