Fake or Real (Authentic, Genuine, etc.) -- Official Authentication Thread - Page 118

post #1756 of 2061

I got roped into working in a thrift store yesterday where those would have been thrown in the bin. The 'Sorter' threw a pair of gucci aviators in the rubbish bin because "it doesn't have the name written on the lens"

On old versace sunglasses like t75 col869 or t24 col 869 etc, are lenses made of plastic or glass?

Hi guys, I bought this suit on ebay: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Herren-Anzug-Ermenegildo-zegna-Gr-46-/141960549375?nma=true&si=2gNBiQxAL0gUqS%252BobOFfvBr7%252FOI%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 and was wondering if it is genuine, since there is no cloth tag on the inside of the jacket and no label on the inside of the trousers. Can you tell from the pictures if it's real or fake Zegna? Thank you!

There are a ton of things off about it. The inside tag is (very) old. The rest of the suit doesn't look as old as the tag. The lining, the red and black, looks wrong. The contrast buttonhole pictured is a more modern detail, not something I'd expect on a 25 year old suit, and not standard on OTR Zegna, though possible with su misura.

In short, at best, I'd expect it to be a generic suit with an old Zegna tag sewn into it.

Fake as Handershund suggests.

The mouth of the in-breast pocket gives the game away at a glance.

Defintely fake. Zegna pants have triple closures, inside button, inside hook and outside button. Rise on pants also looks too small.

I agree with all of this; but would like to stress how old that label is...it's super old.

Get a refund on this item, it's not Zegna.

Dear all,

While thrifting this weekend, I came across a 100% cashmere sportcoat made by Kiton. Everything looks real to me, except for the fact that the lining is plain, instead of trademark Kiton Napoli watermark. Is that a red flag?

Any feedback from a Kiton aficionado would be highly appreciated!

Thanks once again.

Thank you for your very kind reply.

Unfortunately I didn't get to take any pics (à bad idea). The internal tags (KITON brand name, the small composition tag just inside the left pocket, the green 100% cashmere tag just above the right pocket as well as the hand written size and drop indication inside the right pocket) all seem genuine.

The only red flag is the lack of Kiton Napoli watermark on the lining. I have two other Kitons and all the other Kitons I've come across always have the trademarked KITON name all over the lining...

I should get some pics!
