    Hello there




    I have just bought a Brioni (possibly) over coat. It is grey and knee length. I can't feel anything between the outer layer and inner lining and I wonder if this is suspect? I will post pictures of the label and the buttonholes in the hope that somebody can help me confirm it's real or fake? Thank you so much for your help.

    The pics you posted are of some flowers/plants, and a dog.

    Most overcoats that are wool have the thick wool as the main part of the coat and then a satin liner inside and that's it. They are not typically "stuffed" with insulation such as a puffy winter coat might be.

    The 3MB attachments take too long to download, can't be bothered to wait.

    Pictures are NOT good, but looks legit.

    Label appears ok, has the Brioni lining, and the button holes look hand made, which certainly wouldn't be done on a repo

    It's real - but also quite old.
