Fake or Real (Authentic, Genuine, etc.) -- Official Authentication Thread - Page 50
I've never encountered fake Ferragamo dress shoes. And if they are fake, the likelihood that they would use something like pebbled-grain leather seems slim. I'm going with real.
As for the Brioni suit, same thing. Brioni is a very high-quality suit, but it doesn't have enough name recognition to be faked. I've never seen a fake Brioni suit being sold.
Also, it has split waist constuction; pretty good fake if you ask me.
Don't think it's really a Tom Ford suit that customers would buy. It more than likely is something that their SAs would wear in the stores...."designed specifically for Tom Ford associates." Starting bid of $1,000 is rather much though for what it is.
That's what I remember reading somewhere here in the forums. They're made specifically for sales associates to wear at work as uniform.
