Recently purchased a Canali off of eBay. Having a very hard time telling if it's authentic. I'll probably make a run to a shop later. Hints it is Canali: 1) Stitching around the pockets and on the edges of lapels looks right (you can see the small stitch marks) 2) Tag still attached to sleeves and label inside the jacket is right (capital CANALI stitched in a light colored thread) 3) Pants detailing is right (lining to the knees, light stitchings around the fly) 4) White fabric tag inside the jacket says (among other things), Canali on it. Hints its not Canali: 1) Definitely feels like there is a fusing layer (I was under the impression that all Canali suits were not fused). It's a very light fusing layer though. 2) The label on the inside of the coat (CANALI stitched in light beige), the label isn't actually attached by the light stitching. I can look in through the inside right breast pocket and see hand stitched dark blue stitches (that better match the lining). Can anyone check inside a Canali suit through the right breast pocket and see what the stitching of the label looks like on the underside? Hoping this is real.
