I don't know - he's gotten quite a few feedbacks saying the items were not authentic. Â Seems odd that they would fake a belt like that - usually the fakes are covered with logos.
I have no idea whether that's real or not - but if I
were a luxury goods counterfeiter, I'd produce a second
tier of goods, largely bereft of external badges, but still with a logo somewhere
. Those who are wary of fakes - and so avoid the items with obvious logos - who want the brand name, but don't know enough about the brand to tell, would buy from the second level, thinking they were smart enough to find the genuine article. They'd probably pay a higher markup, too. Some people on the board have claimed to have seen fake Borrelli, or Kiton or whatever, and this has been quickly shot down, as 'people who want these brands would quickly spot a fake'. But would everyone
? I'd imagine many young, style-deficient people would hear about these brands from their co-workers, and they would quickly become an object of desire, just like Versace or Armani. But, not knowing the tell-tale signs of a quality garment, they'd buy fakes with the Borrelli badge as entry-level garments, and have no idea they were getting ripped off. Whew. I think I'm done.
