Fake or Real (Authentic, Genuine, etc.) -- Official Thread - Page 17

post #241 of 1158
Probably real. I agree with those that say it looks like a cheap licenced YSL; mainly because the shirt has a whiff of Pierre Cardin to it. Having worn way too many cheap department store-grade PC shirts in my pre-SF days, it's scary how much this shirt reminds me of those old things. Still, for less than 2 quid, it's not much to lose.

Quick tip: don't buy anything YSL unless it says rive gauche on the label unless you're looking for a tie with the YSL lettering, the main line never actually made them, but they are some pretty nice ones

The Ebay vendor "buywithconfidence10" seems to have many items described as "Authentic Burberry". There is another place besides Ebay where one normally find many garments described as "Authentic Burberry, and that is China. I'm quite sure that Burberry one of the most copied brands in China. BTW my knock-off "Burberry London" shorts are holding up very well, had them for a week now.

fake also burberry split their brand up into different price ranges when they dropped the "s" from the name

the trench coats from the london line haven't been made in england for years. 20 or so
the london lines are usually made in turkey or china

the prorsum stuff is usally italy and a few other places depending on season/article

Can't really comment about the RL suit itself. But this Ebay vendor loves using the word 'Authentic' to describe all of his/her lots. That makes me rather suspicious about the items for sale. Are they really authentic? Same with the previous knock-off Chinese Burberry coat post.

Genuine lyle&scott?

I've had this lyle & scott shirt forever but I have no idea if its real or not. The fact that I randomly found it in my closet tells me its fake but can this be verified?

Couldn't get a pic of the buttons but they say lyle & scott around them.


Sorry for the quality, had to use my phone.

 

Thanks.

Authentic or Fake Versus by Gianni Versace Tie

Hi, guys. Do you guys think this tie is authentic Versus by Gianni Versace? It is difficult now to find Versus tie, so I can't compare side by side. Please kindly provide your reasoning why it is authentic or fake. Many thanks.

Checking this for a friend who is planning on selling it...
He said he got it from a sample sale while he was in Europe a couple years ago...it was a pop up thing that he stumbled into...I really have no idea if it's real or fake...any help would be much appreciated.

We've checked the serial number on the Moncler website and it worked as a different jacket...which is really fishy. However, the sales rep told him that it wouldn't work at all because the jackets he was selling were considered "sub-standard" for Moncler...which is why he got them.

My thoughts are that it was as he said a factory defect or something like that...although there isn't anything wrong I can see with it. I don't own any Moncler pieces so I can't do any comparisons...thanks is advance!

ps. if anyone is interested in purchasing...let me know and I can ask my friend

Hey guys, 

 

could you take a look at these two suits I'm considering? I think the Zegna suit is an off 5th avenue, and I'm not sure about the D&G.

Reputable seller, but I want to make sure.

seems an extraordinary price if it is.

What do you mean by "extraordinary price"? It's an auction?
Looks genuine to me.

"$12,000.NWT" ...surely Brioni suits don't cost that much do they?...I assume that's USD. The vendor seems to have a lot of lux 'new with tags' as well,
