How to spot a fake Hugo Boss shirt?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I've been looking for some nice Hugo Boss shirts on eBay and I've been surprised at how cheap they are.... which makes me a little suspicious. Does anyone know how to identify a real Hugo Boss dress shirt, or happen to know any 100% reputable ebay sellers of nice dress shirts?

 

Here are the shirts I've been looking at:

 

Shirt 1:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NWT-Mens-Hugo-Boss-Gulio-Dress-Shirt-15-5-34-35-125-/110722810081?pt=US_Men_s_Dress_Shirts&hash=item19c79800e1#ht_1497wt_1324

 

Shirt 2:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NWT-Hugo-Boss-Gulio-Dress-Shirt-Purple-125-15-5-32-33-/200639422472?pt=US_Men_s_Dress_Shirts&hash=item2eb70aa008#ht_3018wt_1329

 

Shirt 3:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Hugo-Boss-Mens-Dress-Shirt-Enzo-100-Cotton-Solid-Color-/130462507536?pt=US_Men_s_Dress_Shirts&var=&hash=item641ead247a#ht_5419wt_1165

 

Thank you!

Do a search on the forum for the ebay seller, many are rated in several posts/threads.

Is it the cuts/designs you don't like or is it just bad quality for the price?

terrible quality for price - unless you find them at 70% off. and even then you can find deals from makers with better quality, for instance charles tyrwhitt right now (http://www.ctshirts.co.uk), for less.

The prices you have shown on ebay are not as cheap as you think. I purchased one in a brick and mortar store on sale for $40. Also from the tags, there is no real reason to think they are fakes.

The third one is most probably fake.

 

I am not sure of the second one.

 

The first one is probably original though. Ask on AF or HF to confirm.

 

However, you get the same prices at Nordstrom.

from my experience of trying on and buying a couple boss black label shirts...
the best ones (fit me the best) are made in turkey... nordstroms had the ones from china and malaysia (the herringbone ones) on sale and they fit like a boat...
i bought the made in turkey one from the boss boutique @ msrp of $155 (lame, but it fitted great, though no excuses for over paying)

there are several cuts which will determine the fit, not where they are manufactured.

all of them are "slim fit"... unless you are going to tell me that there are slim fit A and slim fit B fits... plain.gif

certain cuts might be consistently made in one particular place, however there are different slim fits. Some are darted and some are not.......they even make extra slim fits.

The "Max" is a great cut for me personally, although I have a few others as well.
