    Real but like Mike said, the pants has been dry cleaned the shit out of it. You can tell by the shiny fabric around the pocket.

    @Uli Kunkel

    What makes you say that? From what I'm seeing, it looks very much real.
    This is also not true.

    Shows what you know. Almost all fake. AAA grade fakes, best around for Kiton. This is common knowledge among legit sellers. I know several sellers who were contacted asking to sell Kiton counterfeits as well as other labels, all of the best counterfeits in the world are Kiton and most are on eBay so use your head about it and you'll realize that what I'm saying is logically and I can assure factually true

    you sound very knowledgeable, even though you haven't specifically pointed out even one thing that makes it look "fake".

    enlighten us with your vast knowledge of the fake Kiton market... [​IMG]

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight...What you said was pretty much, "I know a few guys who know a few guys who sell the bestest fake Kitons on eBay, don't you know, bro!" [​IMG]

    Show us what you know supported by evidence rather than just your opinion, please, and please cut down on the condescension. [​IMG]

    The tags look real. Not sure about the suit itself just from looking at the pictures.

    What do you mean it feels different to what you're used to? Compared to what?


    Can you specify why you're convinced this one is fake?

    Let's see the shoulders as well.

    Higher-end ready-to-wear suits and jackets will have unfinished cuffs. This gives the original purchaser the option of putting on surgeons' cuffs when getting the sleeves altered to the correct length. Also, removing buttons and fake buttonhole stitching will damage more delicate fabrics.
