post #75706 of 124477

This just doesn't look right, but I thought I'd ask anyways.  Didn't buy, but can be there first thing in the AM if I'm wrong about it being a fake:

Hermes and Versace tie (Click to show)

 

This just looks bad, those wheels?

 

Here the logo isn't centered.

 

Then there's this Versace:

Designata in italia?

again with the logo off center

But a fake with a store tag?

Hermes is fake. The Versace is real but pretty old.

If you go back for the Versace would you check the hermes for the loop under the folds under the front of the tie. I'm sure there's a technical name for that but that's the best I've got.

If you had opted into the global shipping program before, but do not use it. Go check a few of your listings. I just found out ALL of my listings had been "upgraded" to use the Global Shipping Program which I do not want to use. I have since opted out and was told it will remove it from all 300+ listings I have currently, but just a warning.

 

I am not sure if I "accepted" something by accident but it went back and changed ALL my old listings that I know for a fact did now use the 'GSP'. They also do not use that term any more instead there is a new box that says "Send it to the US shipping center, and the rest will be taken care of for you." aka the Global Shipping Program

 

 

If you want to comment about this, please do so in the Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions where I have also cross posted this.


This should be moved to the Buying and Selling on Ebay thread, Just saying... devil.gif Love you BP.

Edit: Also, TY for the responses as to going through a retailer of some sort. I'm not worried about them thinking I stole them as I have a receipt, and well... I didn't steal them. I'm going to try, no guts no glory (with a small local chain and an individual store). Also, I think since these are new im looking at more than a $50 avg (were you checking all completed listings and not just new?), but even if I am its well worth it, because as someone pointed out I only have like 6 different models so can photograph pics of each and only end up making 6 listings, which as most of us know is a breeze.

 

Regardless, peep game:

A model im particularly fond of

The rest of them:

This is all you get until i'm back from work tomorrow.

Fin.

The spaghetti wheels in the label, and print are sure signs of a fake.

I want to see if fake Hermes have the loop as well cuz if they do then I need to be even more careful then just looking for the loop.

Considering it's the first time I've seen a Hermes, or a Hermes knock off, I'd say today.

Will do, but I think based on how bad the embroidered logo was, I can't imagine they tried to get the construction right.

Good point. I guess you never really know if something is legit or not.

For science, I will give the Hermes [fake] a better look see tomorrow.

Silk twill is also a dead give away for this one. Should run from 11 to 5. That looks like 2 to 7.
