Caution: purchasing armani suits ebay - Page 3

post #31 of 46
How many authentic Gucci jacketa are there? It's really a dismal affair consisting of blatantly logoed items, and general dross. Gucci at this point does not produce track jackets with GG's all about. The descriptions of 2004 collection is just obscene.

I'm actually thinking of a particular jacket I saw many, many months ago. If you're into the sort of thing, it was cut in a jean-jacket style, except made of gorgeous tan calfskin and the logo'ed tan canvas. It wasn't fake, and still had a Holt Renfrew price tag on it. And, of course, it was being sold at my local Holt Renfrew for some obscene amount. As I recall, it sold for about 1/3 of retail.

Well, the ones I was referring to were those jackets made out of the canvas used for purses. And then the seller states it's in the current collections. That is such a lie. But I did see once a Gucci alligator coat on eBay for $20,000.

Exactly...

If you are interested in those Emporio suits you should check out the other items they sell like all the fake D&G clothes. You can tell they are fake by the mix of the different logos from different lines like &, D&G, and Dolce & Gabbana. The jean jacket is a good example with a Dolce & Gabbana label inside but a D&G lable on the chest. Also the black and white logo cards are not right and the tags in the lime t-shirt is wrong. . .

Yea I noticed this as well. A friend of mine recently bought some "Versace" jeans on eBay. It's pretty funny, he's really excited about them... I don't want to tell him that the pocket design that says "VERSUS" on it doesn't exactly work with the leather patch that says "VERSACE JEANS COUTURE." Whoops

From now on .. I shop on ebay EXPECTing the item is not authentic epscially those italian labels. I find Hugo Boss stuffs are real so for, but Prada, Armani stuff I bought were fake. Just bought these Gucci (real or not) shoes: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws....IT&rd=1 I know the shoes are not from this season. It should be somewhere between 2000-2002 .. Does anyone know where i can see Gucci shoes pics from past seasons? Interesting note: The seller of the shoes are Ben Clymer Tempa Bay Lightening ..

Folks, I would pay good money if someone would please publish a high end men's guide to who makes what for whom.
I'm afraid, that guide would be out of date before it is published.

Given the boxy style, gaudy ornament and overly-shiny leather, I'm going to say they're circa 1999-2000.

Incidentally, that seller has sold fake Hugo Boss jeans in the past: see http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....8574662

I'd go with MikeF - maybe even a year earlier, 1998. They extremely square-toe and chunky heel was at the height of fashion at just that time.

Now that I read .. I think you guys might be right. But I find todays shoes are WAY too pointy for me. I am from Toronto, Here.. decent italian designer shoes runs at least $600 CAD up. Shitty ALDO, Kenneth Cole, Browns shoes runs about $150-$350 CAD. I figure (whether the shoes are real or fake) as long as it fits, it should be ok deal for me at $210 CAD. If the shoes do not fit, I am going to sell these with more $$$ on ebay. There was another seller who sold this same shoes before .. it went up to $350CAD .. which then I did not feel like to buy...

outside of a few good solid sellers, i would suspect that a lot of fake crap makes it there, and it thrives b/c people are so label conscious they don't care to know, and those same peopel aren't the ones who buy kiton etc. i would NEVER buy from someone outside the US for fear it'd be fake

Unfortunately this is a reality for me as well that I had to learn through trial and error. However it seems some New York and LA based sellers have been putting out fake things as well. The only way to combat this is to know lots about what you're buying before you buy it.
