Gucci Peak Lapel Suit: No Woolen Felt Underlay Beneath the Collar and Lapel?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 

I recently purchased a pre-owned Gucci peak lapel suit from a seller on eBay.  The buttons are all engraved with the Gucci name, the interior Gucci label appears genuine, and the style labels inside the jacket interior chest pocket and attached to the pants are consistent and appear to be the same as those in Gucci suits that I purchased at the retail store.  But I was surprised to notice that there was no woolen felt underlay at all beneath the collar and upper part of the lapel.  It makes me question the authenticity of this suit.  Did Gucci make some suits without the woolen felt underlay?  I would appreciate any thoughts from any Gucci aficionados out there. Thank you.

I'm no Gucci aficionado, but if someone went to all that trouble with those details, that would be very bold of them.

I have owned several Gucci suits in the past, all purchased at Boutiques or Department Stores (at considerable discount I must add). Some models are fused / part fused, some models fully canvassed. Your suit is likely authentic. I would not worry about it unless you have reason to suspect the seller may be flipping counterfeits with his/her other products.

But what about details like all the buttons are engraved with Gucci and match exactly the buttons on the Gucci suit that I purchased from the Gucci retail store.  Or, the fact that it has the correct style labels.  The pants have the Gucci name sewn into the waist line like authentic Gucci suit pants.  And, even the trouser clasp is engraved with Gucci like the genuine item.  It seems like too many of the genuine details are there for it to be a fake, but I'm really surprised not see there is no woolen felt underlay.  Given all those details, I need more information before I assume this is a fake. But thanks.

I agree that the details suggest this suit is authentic.  The suit is fully canvased.  And I have no reason to believe the seller (who has excellent feedback) is selling fakes.  But why would there be no felt underlay?  I though this was a basic element of any well made suit.  Thoughts?

You obviously haven't seen the skills these counterfeiters posses. In any case who was the seller of the suit? Someone here might know them and might be able to attest to whether they are a reputable seller.

Link the eBay listing and show us pics.

Great idea.  The seller was ngojacks out of London.  Has relatively good feedback for a lot of transactions.  Here is the link to the auction with photos  http://www.ebay.com/itm/170711787476?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649   If it were not for the fact that there is no woolen felt underlay, I would think for sure this suit is genuine Gucci.

One hundred fucking percent authentic.

It is an older model, stop worrying and enjoy the suit.

Please dont write in bold, I dont mean to be bitchy but it is really hard to read your posts plain.gif

Sorry about the bold script.  Why do you think the suit has no woolen felt underlay?  Any ideas?

Yeah he looks like a legit seller, that focuses on used items. I can't say for certain just because I know counterfeiters these days can do a good job, but most don't live in the UK and focus on suits, let alone the suits the seller is selling.

I say its legit.

No idea, but I can tell that Gucci is authentic just from the labels there.

There is no way it is a fake unless the person was able to get original Gucci tags, and even so, he would need a suit maker who could perfectly replicate Gucci's signature suit style from 10 or so years ago.

SpooPoker would also be able to help you, he owns many TF/Gucci pieces. Maybe he will give his two reichsmarks on this. Spoo, please confirm this is original smile.gif

Now that you all have established that this Gucci suit is authentic, any idea why there is no woolen felt underlay beneath the collar and upper lapels?  I mean, am I the only one that finds this super strange? Any ideas why this is so? Thanks.
