What is up with the logo on this tie? Doesn't look like the official typeface:





The metal tie keeper is bizarre too

I can't confirm the above poster is correct, but FWIW I have a Brioni tie with a little metal plate like that and the name is in the official typeface.

I bought one of those and showed it to the guys at Brioni on 57th - they confirmed it was a fake.

Real Brioni has a metal tie keeper, it's like real Raybans do NOT have Rayban on them but they do have B&L etched into the lenses.

That's not correct... depends on from when you bought your Ray Ban. Bausch & Lomb don't make them for a quite a while anymore and the newer ones have Ray Ban printed on the glass. Same goes for Brioni ties, originals current models don't have a metal tie keeper. Not sure about vintage ones though.
