Brioni Suit -- Real or Fake? Help Please! - Page 4

post #46 of 84
Thread Starter 

Thank you all very much for the helpful information.  I will be returning the suit to the seller for a full refund.  You guys are amazing!  I especially appreciate the input from jefferyd and eHaberdasher.  CSI couture indeed!

True, but I was more referring to the inside size tag - it's a very old Brioni size tag and seemed odd that someone would either copy or remove and sew into this one. Label is easy enough to do and copy, but the size tag which isn't even current was kind of unexpected.

Here's a care tag from a 20-year-old Brioni (for Harry Rosen) suit with the "made" and "hecho" label. The mystery's been solved, but it's interesting to note how the suit was a piecemeal fake.

Thanks for posting this; I find the language issue fascinating. This label looks like it was printed and the OP's suit was woven. In any case it just shows that we can't rely on the label for proof of authenticity.

I don't have any intact Brioni suits anymore- would you be so kind as to photograph the undercollar, the buttonhole and the trouser waistband? We would then have a visual real/fake comparison for people to reference.

"BUBEULY".... well it's got the famous charging knight trademark. It's not even Pinyin, because that would be 'Ba bǎo lì'(巴宝莉)

I personally do not like hurting other sellers feedback - it is possible the seller picked it up thrifting or at an estate sale and thus would be none the wiser real / fake. If you notice other fakes from the seller, hit that negative feedback button immediately since it is the duty of a good citizen to inform other buyers this seller is no good. But if it is a genuine seller mistake / seller not in the know, a strongly worded email (indicating to the seller to be more mindful on the stuff he is selling) would suffice and leave positive if the seller plays ball or just not leave any feedback at all.

Not to hijack an otherwise great thread, but this attitude drives me crazy.

I don't see how you let a seller get away with selling a fake and NOT leave negative feedback. Isn't that what the feedback system is for?

I could see cutting him some slack if in response to the question, the seller said: "I bought it at a second hand shop, and it seems real to me, but if you think it's not, or are otherwise unsatisfied with the quality, feel free to send it back for a refund."

Instead, he gave some cock and bull story about a lawyer who bought it at Selfrideges and wore it once - to his daughters' wedding!

This is what negative feedback is for; please do the ebay community a favor and leave it.
