    The resale value would be low because it's fake. Don't sell a fake to somebody else. Or if you do at least rip out the tags.

    I'm not an idiot reselling fakes. I meant if I'd cut the tags away, how much is it worth? 10 EUR? 20? less than 10 EUR?

    What about this? I couldn't have googled out this kind of logo. I've not yet bought it (a shirt)

    Correction - I believe this is a replica. Authentic Versace do not appear to have that type of "S" on any of its historic labels. Here is a look at Versace labels over the years - good resources for you in the future:

    Looks real - although....I would not wear them. How much did you spend on these? There are so many choices for great quality denim under $200.00 new.

    Thanks! I'm not wearing them, they're way too big for me. They were a steal on a poor eBay listing so I will be reselling them.

    Oh ok - look legit to me. I don't know that anyone is actually replicating Kiton - not a particularly popular brand to make fakes of.

    My thoughts too. Just wanted to make sure since the listing was very poor quality and a couple things surprised me. Thank you!

    Piece itself looks legit to me, but box much different from ones I've seen. For example Italian spelling of 'nickel' to 'nichel.' and the low placement of the logo and whited out medusa.

    2013 / 14 Haas Brothers collab. No CLG (certilogo) tag or #. It's 'used'

    Insights appreciated, esp if you've bought from Versace in person in recent history and know what their labels/boxes are like. My hunch is the piece is real, but the box is fake (as unlikely as that sounds it's coming from a pawnbroker so it's possible he had some fake or old boxes lying around). I'll be surprised if there are any fakes of this considering recency and complexity

    Guys, look at this. Found it online, very cheap. (Didn't buy it). Looks legit but for some reason I have a bad feeling about it.
    1) Couldn't have googled out the pics. Which is weird. I don't think the seller made them personally.
    2) Found a very similarly looking jacket on Tradekey - some Chinese no brand shit. What do you think???

    My key would be to look a the seller - if the seller is from China/Asia - fake.

    It's not from eBay but from Aukro - Czech auction site, very similar to eBay but most people selling and buying are local. The seller is Czech, if I ask him he will without a doubt insist it's from some Italian source (so no point in asking)... Well at least I'll try to ask him for a detailed photo of a button.

    btw is the label shown on the jackets valid? Why does it have "Made in Italy" under the logo? Isn't a sign that it's fake?

    Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake. Giorgio Armani logo doesn't use the Eagle, only the diffusion line Emporio Armani does. Jackets like that would unlikely be released under black label, more likely A/X, Jeans, Emporio or maybe Collezioni. Very fake, do not buy.
