    Hi Kbadgley84,

    The fakes nowadays are getting good these days, the size tag they used is pretty much attractive than the normal authentic ones.
    They embossed the Hugo Boss in a black glossy cloth (in my initial post) as opposed to the printed one attached.

    The back buttons also in the fake I posted has the Hugo Boss logo as opposed on the picture. How ironic!
    I think these fake manufacturers just overdone it. LOL :)

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Angelo

    Would you all help me double check on this pair of Gucci hiking boots? Seller says all items on account are leftover inventory, floor samples or store returns. Just wanna confirm authenticy!

    Any more pictures? Gucci shoes have a serial inside. Also, pictures of the removable sole inside would help as I find fakes usually skip the smaller details

    I'll post pictures, but does anyone know whether ISAIA ever uses LAMPO zippers? All garments I've bought from a big box store or outlet store have the coral logo on the zipper and all other hardware. The remainder seems legitimate, but the zipper is throwing me off [there's another item online that clearly has a LAMPO zipper that I am somewhat interested in as well].

    Hi all! Been lurking and now finally registered! I was wondering if anyone can do an LC for these two items for me? I'm a bit suspect on the chukka because I read Gucci serial numbers should be 8 digits long and I wasn't able to find any images of Gucci ever making a leather chukka either. The oxfords also look suspect to me as I don't think Gucci makes any rubber soled dress shoes (I think) and I can't see the serial number. Plus I think the embossed logo is supposed to be a bit bigger.

    Gucci Chukka:

    Based off of what I know about Gucci shoes and comparing them to my own pairs, I'd say atleast the chukkas are legit. The chukkas are an older Gucci shoe based off the photos. Trust me. You won't find a database or photos for these things online, I wish these designers had archives. These had 7 digit serial numbers and golden printed words on the soles unlike the newer embossed soles. They also seemed to have been resoled, but have kept the star common on the outside of the heel.

    For reference:


    The other shoes have the star aswell and the pattern on the bottom where the heel meets and the impression of the Gucci seem legit. Ask for a photo of the number. There should also be another stamping on the inside of the shoe that looks like my attached photo! :D

    Hello, real or fake Ermenegildo Zegna Dress Shirt? my guess is it's legit because of the details, the collar button have the words "Ermenegildo zegna" engraved on the side, what do you guys think, thanks!
