    Don't snipe the coat out from under me but... counterfeit or no?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/BELL-CAPPOTTO-BE...QQcmdZViewItem


    It's BIN so I wouldn't worry about snipes but someone may pull the trigger faster. At any rate, I have never heard about Belvest being faked and I strongly doubt they are given that most mass market buyers have never heard of Belvest. That coat looks a lot like the ones sold by another SF poster here: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-3000-Belvest...QQcmdZViewItem

    I don't believe they are counterfeit.

    Great buy, go for it if it's your size.

    I've never heard of counterfeit Belvest. I would note that outerwear, for some reason, fares extremely poorly on eBay, perhaps explaining the low price. But this is a great deal.

    Nonetheless, I will hold off on this and give you a chance to pull the trigger quickly. But likely only for the day - its a very sweet deal on a great looking coat, and its going to get cold out very soon.
    BTW- if you grab it, let us know about the fit - slim or not?

    Also note, he has the same coat in a number of different sizes. Check his items.

    Someone on here or AAAC was offering a few of these for sale. Can't recall who, but this is a better price.

    Nice. If it was in my size, I'd have gone for it. He's taking offers and there are two in already...

    I figure it's gotta be worth the shot. Oh, and for all you Belvestophiles...

    I desperately want this to fit, but the shoulder is too big for me. The buyer said she would take a BIN of something like $60 or $70, forget which. I am fairly certain this is Belvest for a private label.

    JS,

    Good luck but that Belvest label does not look like any Belvest label I've seen. It's definitely worth the shot for the price but.....

    I've seen similar white labels on Belvest before. But to be honest, I have no idea if it legit. It could certainly be fake. I also have no idea if it will fit. Sartorial lottery I guess.

    That is a legit Belvest, they have blue - black and white label.

    Ask Ben from Honest*Goods -- eHaberdashery as he knows

    and it explained once to me in the past.
