I'm afraid that I've got no idea whether those shirts are genuine or not but I would be very, very, veeeery wary of buying fashion-brand t-shirts, simply because they are so very, very easy to fake and, as a result, there are an overwhelming number of fakes out there.

Furthermore - and I do realise that this is subjective - why bother buying fashion brand t-shirts at all? Unless they have some sort of unique design on them (no, I'm not talking about a logo, but rather a picture or something of the sort), I can't really imagine that a Gucci or Boss t-shirt would be that much better than, say, a Uniqlo t-shirt.

That Versace tag looks phony to me. Any help on these pradas? .

The T shirts are probably fake. Designer brands aren't known for simply printing their logo on the breast of a T shirt and then selling it. Chinese counterfeiters, however, are.

The Prada shoes might as well be fake. They're fugly as hell with those square toes.

Are you labeling the sneakers as fake because of something you see in the picture or simply because there "fugly" ?

If you have looked at a lot of Prada sneakers and these seem off then don't take my word over your instinct, but nothing about the photos I see suggests to me the shoes are fake. The real ones have those red stripes at the rear with "Prada" embossed, and many others have small silver lettering etc at the front of the shoe etc, so a faint embossed logo at the back one one pair doesn't immediately suggest fake to me, just a variation in design (they make a million of these a year and I'm sure some poor dupe somewhere collects them), but again, I am not asserting that they are genuine.

How comforting that someone too ignorant to tell the heel of a shoe from its toe is weighing in on authenticity (since those are not even the least bit square in the toe).

Both look fake.

I appreciate your input. I said they look off only because I've never seen 'Prada' embossed on the back of any of their sneakers. But it is true that there are many variations in production. Here are some more photos for anyone else willing to weigh in.

I have handled fake sneakers in the past, and I have noticed two things that easily identify the ones I've handled. Firstly, the construction was shoddy beyond all acceptability. They felt like they were going to fall apart the first time I wore them, and the materials used to construct them felt very cheap. Secondy, brand new, they had a very unpleasant "synthetic" odor to them, different from the typical smell of new sneakers. That's not to say that fakes can't be produced well and without an odor, but if your sneakers have this, then they're probably fake.

Also, one way to spot fake Prada is by examining the logo on the box. On the genuine box, there is a small indentation between the loop and the legs of the R in "PRADA." On a lot of fakes, this detail is neglected. Like so:



The image on the right is of a real box, and the image on the left is of a fake box. If your box doesn't have this detail in the R, then your shoes are fake.

I also stand by my original statement that even if they are real, they're not worth wearing considering the fact that they're hideous. Fake or real, those shoes are a disgrace to humanity and should be burned immediately.

Also, for what it's worth, I have been able to find a lot of very similar looking shoes on counterfeit websites.

Even though I couldn't find an exact match, the fact that these shoes look so similar raises a lot of red flags.

Are these Ferragamo shoes on ebay fake?

Hey guys. I'm new here and don't know too much about Ferragamo's, but was wondering if these shoes I saw on eBay were fake? Thanks for the help!

What's the best way to tell if they're real or fake? Thanks!

Is this Brioni suit authentic?

I'm a noob and need an expert's eye. The feedback on the seller includes a person recently claiming he was sold a counterfeit Brioni tie.

No way to tell from overly dark photos and no maker tag shots. The label looks right though.
