MilanoStyle, I am sorry for your bad experience. But I wish to clarify some things. I have bought hundreds of suits and sportcoats on ebay and have kept a very close eye on high-end clothing auctions for four years now. There are some fakes out there, but it is not quite as bad as your post makes it sound. In most cases I can tell a fake suit from a real suit, from pictures. An Armani Collezioni, maybe not in every case. But a higher end item? Even from a few dimly lit pics I could tell in almost every case. You can't fake top-quality work without the differences being glaringly obvious. Â Fakes are not all that common. With a label like Armani they are certainly out there - everybody knows the name and they are fused suits, good fused suits for sure, but still fused suits. So not that hard to knock off, and there is profit to be made. With handmade and hand finished clothing it's not so easy. There is no real reason to knock them off - not many know the name, and most that do could spot a fake from across the room. So fake versions of handmade or hand finished suits are rare enough that I have never seen one (excepting that Zeena suit in 'The Family Man' :-) More often (but still very rarely) you will see cheap suits with expensive labels sewn in to them. Those should be easy to spot though. Â As for the low prices - that is no evidence as to the authenticity, or lack of it. I make a living hunting down high-end clothing at giveaway prices and reselling it for a small percentage of retail. The deals are out there, on authentic merchandise. Clothing is a volume business. Out with the old, in with the new, regardless of the original retail value. About the packaging - that sounds pretty bad. When you say rolled up, do you mean literally rolled? That is ridiculous. The bag is not a bad idea though - I use clear plastic bags myself. They aren't as pretty as tissue paper but they do a lot better job of protecting the box when it gets drenched in oil or water (yes, this has happened to my packages before.) The two suits BjornH posted? The "Zegna" is a mediocre fused suit made from Zegna fabric. Not a fake really, it's just that the seller is misrepresenting it. The Armani could be fake - I'd have to see that particular one in person. Some of the other Armani suits that they are selling are definitely authentic. But the tags on this one look somewhat suspect (could be bad pics, could be fake labels - I can't say for sure.) If some are fake and some are real, it is not an unprecedented scam. There was an ebay seller in Germany (can't remember the name) who used to sell cheap suits with Kiton labels sewn in right along with authentic Kiton suits. (Most of the real items were acquired from US ebay seller's, in order to salt the auctions.) I even tried contacting the high-bidder's a few time to warn them, likely to no avail. Â The "made in Italy" tags aren't a good proof - there is some cross-pollination when it comes to those tags. You will see the same tag in authentic suits from multiple brands, which are not produced by the same company. And many companies switch to a different "Made in Italy" tag. or even use different versions at the same time. Now a question for the board. On the rare occasions that I do see suits on ebay that are clearly fake, I would love to report them. But the problem is, how do I prove it to ebay. I know it for certain, based on my experience, but how am I going to convince ebay? That's the problem. I want these jerks kicked off, they harm innocent buyers and sellers, but the question is, how??
