    I was wondering if anyone has bought form this seller and if they are authentic? The seller is highclassbotique http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....86&rd=1 He is selling brioni ties but it worries me that he is selling from lebannon. On a side not has there ever been any talk about having a forum specifically for ebay related questions?

    Hmm... It looks authentic in a number of respects (self-loop, metal "brioni" label, seemingly quality woven silk, Brioni print on acetate). In fact, the pattern and texture of the silk is very similar to a Brioni tie I saw earlier from a seller with a bit more feedback: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....26&rd=1 However, the lack of a visible slip-stitch concerns me. The care label is also different from those I have seen on a number of Brioni ties, but those were all in English, and so may be different on non-USA market ties. In other words: I have no idea.

    It looks substantially different than the Brioni ties in my possession (purchased in the US and Europe) but it could be from a middle eastern seller <shrug> Seems a bit cheap though.

    Another "bargain" source for Brioni ties and shirts. Can this possibly be legitimate at these prices? Seller: GS_Quality. 100% positive feedback.

    If they're real, i'd buy a wardrobe's worth, but seems too good to be true.

    what a way to resurrect a dead three year old thread.

    I think the linked Brioni shirts are fake. I've not seen tags like that.

    Remember Ebay rule #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, .....106:

    if too good to be true, then it's too good to be true.

    Did you notice the location of the item is Lebanon? Do the search on LeBanon Brioni[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They're fake. I have seen, touched and felt their products (ties) and have verified that they are not real.
