Purchased a beautiful Luigi Borrelli leather car coat with fur lined hood and collar off eBay. The owner did not know if the fur was real, but upon receipt I definitely think it is based on the backing and the fact that is tapers towards the ends.

So I contacted Borrelli to see if they could confirm if it is indeed authentic and what type of fur it was. After going back and forth a bit with photos, tag information etc. they sent me an email this morning saying they could not locate this coat in their archives. I find this incredibly strange as this coat is definitely extremely high quality and all the labels and tags match other Borrelli pieces I own which are in fact authentic.

I have attached a few pics of the tags and jacket as reference. What are your thoughts on the authenticity of it? I have contacted the person I purchased it from and have ask where and when it was originally purchased, but have not heard back yet.

The tag is a lardini tag. Nobody would bother to fake that.
