Fake or Real (Authentic, Genuine, etc.) -- Official Thread - Page 41

Louis Vuitton pants, legit or fake?
Seems odd that there is no fabric composition tag, & i can't see any signs of a removed tag.
The engraved buttons are spares on the inside, the ones on the back pocket aren't engraved.

Is this an authentic Dolce & Gabanna leather jacket?

Fake. Look at the embroidered tag. The shape of the G is all distorted and the ampersand is choppy.

I just gave it a little editing. The "G" is totally off!

You are correct, it is an Italian law relating to garment labelling

Maybe with a picture?

Is this Hermes tie real?

I bought a used tie off eBay and was wondering about the "thread loop" because mine looks different than other pictures I've seen.  The rest of the tie looks to be authentic.  Here are two pictures of what might be the loop:

Fig. 1: Stitch of thread loop in question.  Goes through to the back of the tie.

 

 

Fig. 2:Thread loop in question.  Comes out of the space between the front and liner and returns there, tying down one of the sides of the tie.

 

Fig. 3: What made me question the authenticity is how badly centered everything is.

 

I haven't seen any that go through all the layers of the tie, and are this short.  Does anyone know if this is fake or not?

Post a picture of the labels that say Hermes and also show the front of the tie.

I'm pretty sure everything else about it is characteristic of authentic Hermes besides the odd stitching.

I don't know well Hermès ties, but it looks authentic indeed. If it's a fake, it's a worthy fake that deserves to be worn.

More importantly, you need to know that the pattern of your tie is inspired by Jean de La Fontaine's Le Corbeau et le renard, a famous fable that virtually every French child knows by heart: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Raven_and_the_Fox

Thanks, I know the story smile.gif

 

I think this tie might be fake because the tip is lopsided, also this:

1. The MOST TELL-TALE Sign in spotting a Fake Hermes is to gently peel back the delicate folds on the back of the wide end of the tie. Here you SHOULD see a small thread loop approximately 1/2" to 1" Long piercing through the silk of the tie. Hermes is the ONLY Tie Maker in the World to utilze a Single Thread Stitch from end to end in their ties. The Thread ends in this small loop inside the back folds of the tie, and can be used to sinch up the seam should it become loose over time. IF your tie has a heavy stitch closing the back of the tie with no thread in

siight, it is surely a Fake!
