Just believe him, okay? He decided to come out and make his FIRST post just to let you know. That's pretty cool!

Oops. sorry, I did not mean to sound like I was not believing him. On the contrary, I believed him completely. That is the reason why I wanted to know what year and season the suit was from Since he purchased the suit, I was hoping that he could enlighten me. As you can tell from my initial post, I don't know much about my suit and I am interested in learning about it.

Or, perhaps, turbozed was implying through sarcasm that eddieveddr01, with his lone post, was in fact part of a trick to get you to accept the authenticity of the suit.

Interesting, this "sarcasm" you speak of. Where can I purchase this "scarcasm" for my own use?

I bought a Dolce at Filene's Basement last year, that has similar tags to the OP's and no chain. I can only assume that, based on where I got it, and the feel/construction, that it's real. However, the post about the two different cuts prompted me to look at the tags, to see if it indicated a model. It didn't, but there was something that really did catch my eye: On the tag inside the pocket, there is a normal suit tag, and in the box that says "taglia" it says 52. On the tag in the pants, the box that says "taglia" says 54. Also, there is a box that says "matricola," which I am assuming is like a serial number, and the numbers are different. So were the pants and jacket originally part of two separate suits? Is that why it ended up at FB? The colors match perfectly, so i treally doesn't matter, and I have every reason to believe that the suit is real, but this just seemed so strange. Thoughts?

The trousers are a size bigger than the jacket. It could be that they're two different models made from the same material. Its very common for designers to offer several models in the same fabric and vice versa. Yes, I guess thats why it ended up at FB.

D&G do that: they sell the whole suit, and when they have sales they split and sell separates. Quite weird, but I have seen it several times.

Thanks Berlin and Luc. I guess that absolutely proves that it's real, as this is typical DG behavior, according to your posts . The jacket fits perfectly, and the pants a little large, which I always attributed to me being proportionally larger in the shoulders and chest than waist. However, I have lost some weight since I bought it, and have to have the waist taken in again anyway, so I'll probably have the leg taken in some more at the same time.

Generally, if the suit is fake, you'll know it as soon as you receive it. Sometimes it is hard to tell from pics, but if you are pleased with the quality of the suit in your hands, it is almost certainly not fake.

D&G may not be Attolini, but they are certainly of sufficiently high quality that you'd know a fake. There are often fake Armani, Prada, etc. suits and you'd know when you received them that they were fake because of the cut, the fabric, etc.. To make a good copy of D&G or PRada would require decent fabric, buttons, etc... none of which a fake-suit copier would pay for. Why would they spend $300 on materials for a fake suit that they could only sell for less than $200?

So, I think you are pretty safe on this one.
