    the jacket is amazing quality. really nice material. however some things bug me. the made in italy tag isn't perfectly center. and the side pockets, one is half sewn shut and the other isn't at all. though black label is usually handmade, perhaps these flaws could be normal? i had one expert look at it already through the pictures and he seemed to think it was real. thoughts?

    Why the fuck do you care about the label? Just open up the seams on both pockets.

    from the label I would think its real,
    as for the alignment, given that the model is 20 years old? (might be wrong) a lot could happen along the way

    it doesn't bother me that it's not center, i was just wondering if that would possibly hint to it being a fake armani. and the pocket doesn't bother me much either. but thanks i guess.

    It is most likely handmade, tag flaws like off-centering are common for handmade clothing.

    That's the old Armani black label, 15-20 years at least? I'm certain they don't put their Milan address on it any more. Sure that's real.
