    @Steve-0 looks legit to me - it's just not the Giorgio Armani that most here go for to be honest, imo. I typically only pick up Giorgio Armani black label pieces, but if it's for yourself and you like it, then go for it!

    The labels seem legitimate though they are older versions, probably 15 years ago.

    Zilli garment bag. Lots of up-close images but not hi-res and also here's my suspicion: It's NWT for $50 and it's being sold by an eBay seller with little feedback located in Russia and this is his only item. And he has 10 of them.

    My first thoughts, in addition to the above, is that stitching looks uneven on the label and the registered trademark is going the wrong direction.

    I know they make good fakes these days but any chance anyone here can shed some light as to the authenticity (or not) of these shoes?

    I have just bought this Brioni sweater, but the label looks a bit strange to me because I haven't seen any Brioni with blue label nor with MADE IN ITALY on the label, but the fabric looks well made, and the tag looks real too. It's hard for me to judge.
    Can anyone help? Thank you!

    In the field.
    Is this legit? No other tag to be found?

    Still curious...but I ended up leaving it as the pattern didn't seem to jive and the font looked suspect. Please educate me if I was wrong. Cheers.

    I'm no expert but I would have definitely grabbed it.

    In fact, even if it is fake, I'd happily pay you gas + beer money + cost.

    I found this trench on a site where people sell a lot of stuff.
    It’s supposedly versace, made out of leather and is 100 euros
    Is it legit or fake? I really cant tell

    It should have been pretty obvious from the cloth I'd say. If it's good cashmere, it's very unlikely to be fake, if it feels like synthetic or cheap wool then likely fake, plus not worth buying anyway.

    What's the back of the tag look like? It's not the best photo but looks like a genuine Burberry tag from early 2000s and placement, although the pattern doesn't scream Burberry, they do have non Nova Check scarves.

    Was it real cashmere(Feel or burn test)? True thrift? I disagree with @Quesjac . True thrift and real, you're making decent on it IMO

    Here's a tag from a scarf I had authenticated for comparison

    It was still there (I half hid it in the mess of scarves) so picked it up for education. I actually think it's legit now.

    It was more the pattern and label that had me wondering, as it does feel like cashmere (haven't tried burn test). The pattern seems to match up when folded and I don't see bleeding of colurs into others...and now that I check back of tag it seems to be neat reverse of front instead of sloppy stitching on back.

    Thanks for all your input. Always learning.
