Same amount of feedback, a couple negatives with one poorly worded gentleman saying he sells fakes, and based in Cyprus, ships from Italy. What do you think about fashionacado's items?

Didn't look at every listing, but everything I saw appears to be real.

Okay cool. I figured it would be because the items are different i.e. he's not mass reproducing a certain design, however someone literally called him fake in the feedback. Think I'm gonna buy something off him, thanks for the input.

Patently fake, sorry. Movement is totally unfinished, dial appears to be printed on, and the watch showcases a rudimentary balance wheel rather than a tourbillon escapement.

Thank you for that :) But it is very strange that I couldn't find any photos of this model online, I thought if this a replica it would be alot of it online, or like in the Ebay someone selling it, kind a hoped it's a limited edition watch :D

^ that is real, I think from 2005.

I bought it from ebay, now being shipped with usps.

 

Seller stated that it's a new brioni, and retail prize is 7,200$.

I bought it on the auction at 580$, as there was no one who bidded.

 

But when looking at the photos, I realized that the inside label has wrinkles.

So,I asked seller that how could he prove that the product is not a fake one, and the answer was that because he has many positive feedback given, there is nothing to be worry about.

 

No negative but all positive feedbacks = authenticated item? I don't believe so.

 

Here are the pics. If there is anyone who can verify, please help me.

Who was the seller and what was the listing? The manufacturer's tag from the inside pocket matches exactly so if the seller is reputable, I'd be inclined to believe that it's real. Here's a thread on labels:

The Brioni label looks the same to me. If you post the seller and the listing, that would help as it's quite possible he's a member here or someone here would have purchased from him before.

Beyond looking at labels, once you actually have the jacket in your hands you should be able to assess how the jacket is constructed. Full canvassing, hand stitched armholes, buttonhole quality, etc. Fakes will be cheaply constructed.

I'm still asking the person for more pics but can anyone help me out? Appreciate it, thanks!

Looks authentic to me, for 2 reasons:
- Fabric tag is one I recognize
- I've only seen 1 or 2 fake Brionis, and neither had the cross-stitching sewn on the Brioni label. I believe it can only be done by hand, and I doubt any counterfeit operations would bother
