    Real but undistinguished (it's a diffusion brand) as far as I can see.

    That might actually be fake, the tags don’t look right

    @Quesjac
    Burberry Brit line started early 2000s and as of a year or two ago is now discontinued. At the time was targeted for a younger audience mostly with usually cheaper prices than mainline (Still expensive). A lot of the same Burberry Brit factories are still making the same garments but everything is now under the Burberry name.

    But I agree with @kbadgley84 that label at the neck does not look like anything I've ever seen and even the knight looks off to me so I would say fake. @enervate33 Do you have more pictures of the inside content tag?

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/PRADA-Very...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    Please excuse my ignorance since as you can tell from my post count I am new at this. It arrived yesterday and I think it is going to work perfect with no tailoring required. I have a Crossfit bod, so V shaped with a smaller waist and broader shoulders, so the cut looks great IMO.

    The seller has a pretty good rep on Ebay it would seem, and he has a couple of other Prada suits and sport coats I might take a stab at also, just wanted to make 100% certain that I am dealing with a seller that is on the level before investing any more coin.

    generally this forum will want to torch prada and use it for kindling. for $400 why buy used crap, when you can get new nice stuff that wont be out of style in 8 months

    WOW, you paid $400 for that? If it is made by Belvest then it is not crap, but may worth $100 given it is used. If It IS NOT MADE by Belvest, then it is crap that I wont pay more than $10

    If it fits you and drapes nicely, don't worry about what it is or isn't. Belvest or not Belvest, real thing or not, rejoice. For you purchased online a suit that fits like a glove, and that makes you mighty lucky.

    Most fashion brand suits have half fused or fully fused jackets, almost no handwork and are "fashion forward." Those types of suits will not age well. They are cheap in almost every sense of the word except price. You can get a new suit with a half fused jacket for the price you spent. Brooks Brothers entry level are much better quality for roughly the same price you paid for the used Prada. If you want something more fashion forward check out Suit Supply. Their entry level is also much better than Prada.

    This. As I said they can go out of style really fast.

    If it is in fact made by Belvest, it is probably decently manufactured. But that won't solve any possible design issues. The pics seemed to be "stock" pics and useless.

    Here are some pics after pulling it out of the closet of the tags, if that helps in any fashion
