hey guys, i'm new to this so maybe i can get some expert help. i was thinking about bidding on this jacket but something looked off to me. the pics suck too, and the seller said he didn't have any other pics.

but if this is a real kiton jacket then i guess someone got a steal!

Looks real (or at least its a hand-sewn fake). But the flaw on the front pocket makes it worth little. Even an expert re-weaver would not be able to make that totally disappear. Its probably an orphan piece.

It appears to be real, but most likely it's a orphaned suit jacket. With the damage and ho hum color it wouldn't go for much anyway.

thanks guys. i feel better. i did notice that damage...the other thing is that the label says "Kiton Napoli" while most other jackets i've seen say "Kiton Napoli Made in Italy". i guess that doesnt make as much of a difference as i thought.

Ehe... after a closer inspection the jacket looks pretty real but it's worn out. The bidding for it has ended by the way, better luck with the next one you get from ebay
