Tag's are faked as much as Rolex's unfortunately, but fortunately not as well from the ones I have seen. A good way to tell is just the feel test. If should not feel cheap and light.

Also, the model number should be on the back. Google that and see if it matches your watch.

The dots on the face should glow brightly after just a little light. Check to see if it looks like a cheap glow in the dark sticker.

Check the crown for the logo as well.

If you are really interested I can show side by side pictures of a genuine Tag next to a knock off.


and if I remember correctly that particular model has a one way bezel that clicks pretty crisply, if it goes both ways, shog[1].gif  it is likely a fail.

Nice haul Dan fir the Nati. That Burberry is late 90's or older since its the old label. That said its a good looking pattern and the old stuff was very well made.

I think the Zegna tie is pretty cool....and I've seen uglier!!!!!

Noob thrifting attempt... Need more patience. Didn't occur to me to check the pants rack to match up orphan jackets... now I know. 

 

 

Brioni SC, single vent... There's no Brioni label in this jacket, besides the lining. Everything appears genuine though. What's the deal there?

This is awesome. Someone needs to own this. If you get no PMs (unlikely), PM me with some names of folks who may be in this size range. Unless it was like $100, you should get it; someone will take it.
