    That or my question reminded them they are doing something wrong and they reacted by saying as little as possible (as a robot) without outright ignoring me. :)

    *nods*

    I've gotten authenticity tags from the $20 Emporio Armani underwear I buy from Belk's. XD In other words, I'm sure they do.

    Yes. Again, I didn't like the attitude of the seller.

    Even if you're a legit seller with legit items, you can make yourself sound suspicious via poor word choices.

    If the seller had said something to the effect of, "I'm supplied by a private wholeseller who wishes to remain anonymous" rather than, "Who cares? I assure you it's 1000% real!", the story would not have found its way here. The BUYER cares and if they ask a question, the seller should answer it.

    Granted, I wouldn't have liked the former answer, but I'd have accepted it.

    Certs of authenticity don't mean anything. It's just a piece of paper that says the item is authentic. Yeh, right!



    "EBAYer: None of my items came from this stores. I have my own sources, mostly wholesaler's. Thank you."

    LOL, most of the Armani around here comes from, mostly wholesalers. Same with all the other knock-off designer lux products.

    You believe it's fake, then? Figures. I'm glad dude wasn't nice to me. :)

    Pretty tough to be uglier than the actual line, but it's nice to see the effort.

    Two years later, Victory Plaza is finished, Frognie Zila is open for business, and I need a couple of new shirts.
