    Hello guys !

    Just received this suite as a gift and I'm wondering if it's an authentic piece or not [​IMG]
    I've never seen this kind of lining on Hermes suites, but hope it is a real piece [​IMG]

    Thanks !!

    that washing info tag doesn't look too convincing, nor does the garment bag

    The inner garment tag in the suit jacket should come up with one that is identical to a Belvest tag. Take a pic of it - easiest way of authenticating.

    Lapels look machine stitched to me although could just be the picture. Not convinced on the pants tag, nor the fonts. So far I am pretty sure it is fake.

    That said, I have never seen a fake Hermes suit in my life nor have I handled a Hermes suit from a recent collection so the tags / fonts etc I am used to could have changed.

    This is what I can find in the jacket. I went to my local Hermes store, they had a similar suite with exactly the same lining and tags !!!

    I believe those tags/lining come with latest Hermes collection. Here are some more pictures of the tags, pockets and lining material.

    I happen to love when Spoo gives a percentage relative to the authenticity. It's never below 1000%

    Spoo, how high does your ten scale go?

    Mine used to go only to 11. But yesterday I saw a 12.
