    I recently came across a burberry trench on (noted as a trench from 1970) for 100GBP, which seems like a price too good to be true.
    So I've come across this forum and wanted to ask you guys if this trench is genuine. Another thing worth noting is that the seller is supposedly listing this as a mens trench while it has a storm flap on the left side and a rather weird measurement name (long 10) and I think it's a woman's measuring thing. The seller however is adamant about it being a mens trench, so confirmation is needed on that matter too. My knowledge on these vintage coats is extremely limited, so any help is much appreciated ^^!

    Hi,

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum to post this question. Just wanted your opinion on whether this Zegna Tie is real or Fake?

    Thanks

    That Zegna tie is most definitely fake

    the Zilli, I have no idea but from the pretty poor pictures, it looks decent construction

    This vintage Burberry scarf.... it feels nice, looks decent. Is there any way to tell if it's real or fake? Here are a few images. I bought from an e-bay seller in UK with very good 100% feedback.

    They switched away from Burberrys in like 1999

    The Burberrys tags I'm familiar with say Dry clean only with it so if real I would expect it to be quite old. It doesn't look like there is color bleeding from one to the next so that's a good sign. I'm unable to tell from the picture too but from my knowledge all Burberry scarves should be 100% symmetrical so you could check for that. Hope it helps

    Thanks for the tip. I measured everything, including the relative widths of patterns from center, etc. Everything looks 100% symmetrical. Based on the feel of it, the color, and the preciseness, I'm inclined to think it's authentic. It appears to be fairly old, as there is thinning of the material at some points.

    What do the labels on the inside pockets look like? I'm not too familiar with any white label D&G. Judging by that very very hard 3 I would guess it to be old

    I wish I knew, this is from an ebay listing that I'm looking to potentially purchase. Thanks for your input though!

    Sorry in advance for the spam of pictures!

    I was hoping someone could please assist me in authenticating this Thom Browne shirt.
    I compared to the pictures on the TB website and as far as I can tell, all the tags look legitimate.. my only issue is that this is tagged as a Size 3 (supposed to be a Large) but the measurements are more like a Medium (maybe even small).

    I do not have a store nearby me where I can compare this to the real deal so hopefully, an expert on here will be able to help me.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Probably fine but old, but ask the seller for the internal labels if you're anxious.
