    I recently came across this Brioni leather belt. It seems to be of high quality, but I'm very wary of picking up fakes. There are two things that kind of stand out to me:
    1. I don't see any other Brioni belts with "Roma" actually on the belt anywhere
    2. Every other Brioni belt I've seen has the size clearly marked at the tip of the belt. This one doesn't.

    On the plus side, it does have the name on the buckle as it should. Also, I'm not incredibly knowledgeable about Brioni, so I'm probably making up for it with paranoia and nitpicking. What do you guys think? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    ^^^^ I'm no expert but I would say the tie is real, but quite old. The belt looks good as well.

    Agreed. Tie is legit, just very old. Think belts legit as well, also probably older given the Roma reference.

    Hi! bought this pair of RRL jeans, not sure if they are legit cause there are no tags inside. Any help appreciated. If they are legit where are they made? Cheers! IMG_1029.JPG IMG_1030.JPG IMG_1031.JPG IMG_1032.JPG IMG_1033.JPG IMG_1034.JPG

    It's not a chain. It's a small boutique around Madison and the E70s. The tie is legit

    Hello. I've been looking around at some Versace ties online, and one detail I keep seeing alongside other suspicious details (wonky cuts, sloppy edges, weird tags, etc) is this kind of lining. Is there any reason to suspect this lining as an indicator of a fake on it own? Basically - if everything else looks good but it's got this lining, should I be suspicious?
    Thank you.

    That lining indicates that it’s older, someone here could likely tell you the specific years of use but I’ve seen it, and that particular logo, on stuff from the 1980’s.

    Those look fine to me. That looks like a repair on the crotch though which doesn’t jive with them looking brand new. Maybe they are a second that they never sewed tags into? Either way, if they fit enjoy them because they look legit from here.
