    I got this zegna blazer and was wondering the authenticity of it because the tag is ripped off [​IMG] This blazer looks vintage and smells older than my grandparents. Please let me know what you think. thanks!

    From the patch, it may be authentic but old, as in 70s old. THe thing that will tell is taking a look at the spec sheet inside the pocket.

    Hey guys, I was wondering somewhere that D&G can sometimes have Dolce & Gabbana written along with it but never the other way around....but that's mostly for streetwear and such. Is this tux real? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] *edit: had to rehost pics*

    Is this shirt real or fake? I have NO experience with Armani, so rulings and explanation would be appreciated (or direction to where all this information is!).

    yeah thats real, however its not the runway brand, its one of the many diffusion lines they have. oh and its old, probabl like 20 years at least. Thrift store find? its the precussor to the Armani Collezoni line.

    when they shortned the name, hey sarted showing smaller scale shows. Alot of people get confused becuase they google Giorgio amrani and they find the black labels with the name and MADE IN ITALY lettering.

    and they want to belive they found something great, and argue with BUT IT SAYS GIORGIO ARMANI AND MADE IN ITALY LIE THE NEWER RUNWAY LABELS
    since they hate hearing the news.

    i have a few of those shirts, they're not bad actually.

    Soo, just how fake is this tie I found today?

    I reckon it´s rather fake, mostly because of that vulgar price tag. The labels are green BTW, not black as in the picture.

    What do you think, and how can I tell?
    Tanks!

    What about it? Genuine, no-one is going to knock off Aquascutum. If you're lucky it'll have been made by Chester Barrie, though it doesn't look so from the labels.
