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.

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.

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


Did you notice the location of the item is Lebanon? Do the search on LeBanon Brioni

they are fake, there are no design numbers embroidered/printed on the silk liners
