    My Honest opinon, I have been buying alot of clothes off ebay recently and One main thing - Buy from the united states - Or canada (if you have to and you KNOW its authentic). But Im sure someone will say go for it. - Trust preowned and the united states. Look for preowned that is like worn Once - Rich people will buy stuff and just throw it in their closet for a few months then sell it

    two authentic Jhane Barnes - Each one is atleast $180 Retail - and both BRAND new

    I buy a lot of cloths of ebay off reputable sellers mostly from new york. This gucci polo also seems too cheap for a gucci. and i dont want to buy pre owned this also comes from the UK i think its trustworthy?

    Just because its preowned doesnt mean its bad... OK man, lets say you wear a $380 shirt one time, and take it off.. its worth $20? naw man, no way.

    Also preowned also means that it can withstand a dryclean, if it wasnt authentic a dryclean would fuk it up.

    well back to topic...

    Trust United States (canda - only if you have to)... And man just because it looks authentic, has a RN Number, has everything in the right spot... Could just mean their intelligent at counterfits.

    I personally like it, plus its only $25 shipped from Ebay. [​IMG] Is it true that real zegna's "E" in Ermenegildo has a longer tail, just like the "E" in Times New Roman, and fake ones look like "E"?

    Everything about the pics looks real. What made you think otherwise?

    Just that I was browsing the forum and saw a thread about an "obvious fake Kiton", and realized I wouldn't have known it was fake. So, just wondering if this tie is real/fake, since it is my first Zegna tie from ebay. Thanks for the help guys [​IMG]

    It's probably authentic, but it's also 50% rayon. It's not worth a thing.

    Yes. Italian Suit Warehouse are good sellers. As opposed to the 'awesomeness' of that particular suit...well that's subjective [​IMG]
