    Picked this up on the bay. The color is dark navy blue but my photos dont show it. I compared it to some known authentics and known fakes and this looks to be ok in my opinion. The buttons look hand stitched, the collar looks well made, the fabric is Not fused, the quality is slightly better than my Canali exclusive collection jacket. The only thing throwing me off is the pants. They do not have any mention of Brioni, and have no tags other than a small size tag.

    Secondly, these pants are too small for me, I need to expand them, how can I tell if it would be possible? (I will bring them to the tailor next week when I have time.)

    Thank you.

    Disclaimer--I am not an expert, but there are no obvious red flags to the suit, and the pants look to be of high quality from what I can tell from the pictures. If they are suit pants, you shouldn't expect to find a Brioni tag in them. If the pants fabric matches that of the suit, that should tell you that they go with the suit.

    The pants can definitely be adjusted, but it does not look like there is a lot of extra fabric in the back based on the last picture posted, so I don't think they can be expanded very much.

    The fabric tag, label, and pant waist band look authentic.

    +1 usually on the suit pants the tag saying the pant model it part of the tag you remove before wearing the pants, the matching one on the pants that you find on the end of the jacket sleeve that says the models of the respective jacket/pants. As shown in the picture below

    P.S in regards to the odd trousers, I'm pretty sure i have a pair of Khakis that has a non removable tag (same type that you find on the insides of Brioni jackets) on it but i can't be sure cuz they are in New York while I'm in singapore. But I'm sure it was like the pants below
