  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Tie is very real. Hate to say this to you - on a scale of 0 to 10, that tie is a minus infinity.

If you want everyone to know you are wearing Burberry, purchase this tie; that is generally not the message people on this board like to convey with their attire.

I'd advise reporting "is this authentic?" threads to the mods using the little red triangle at the bottom left of the OP. The problem is that we're not an authentication site, and these kinds of threads clog up the front pages. I usually flag them, and recommend that the mods delete them, because if they get rampant, they'll turn up on google searches and pretty soon everyday we'll get fifteen new members asking, "Hey is this LV real?" Is this Gucci real?

We don't authenticate, and a buyer should do his/her own homework. I've been on some LV forums in teh past where the mods didn't proactively nip this stuff in the bud and soon enough it was like an infestation.

Just my two cents.

As well, there is a "ask a question/get an answer" thread where somebody could ask, "What's your opinion of this?" more easily than a dedicated thread to each and every auction listing. Trust me, it gets to be a headache.

I don't think they're spam, but SF is coming up when people are googling "authenticate" blagh balgh blagh or "real gucci" or "is this lv real" The only way to stop it is to make sure it doesn't turn up in the searches, which is to delete the threads in question. These members aren't here to take part or to be real members... they just want to know if their $7 Louis Vuitton sunglasses bought from directoutretchinesegoodsforyou dot com is legit! Further, as you said, it's not that we don't want to be helpful... but (1) without seeing it in person, who knows and (2) often, if you have to ASK, answer is that it is probably fake. Rule of thumb for anybody is to assume it's fake if it is online or if you don't know how to tell on your own. The only way to know differently is to do your own homework, and that doesn't mean "Hey, tell me if this is real."

And usually created by people with fewer than 10 posts. I wish there was some sort of rule programmed into the board wherein a member needs a small number of posts before being allowed to start an entirely new thread. Something to cut down on the spammers is what I am thinking.
