    IMG-1836.JPG Hello Everyone,

    I just found this site and, I'm hoping it can help with a problem I'm facing. I recently bought Ferragamo loafers, and now have reason to believe they are fake, mainly due the inside of the shoe, you'll see with my attached pictures.

    I'd appreciate any help and feedback I can get.
    Thanks in advance.

    Do all Gancio bits have “Ferragamo” engraved in them? Are the insoles of men’s loafers like the ones pictured supposed to be removable? Neither of the above is the case for this pair, and the leather doesn’t feel substantial, but I’d like to know the opinion of someone who knows a lot about Ferragamos to weigh in on the authenticity. Thanks!

    Hello everyone,
    Does anyone know if this is a possible fake?

    It's only 150€ but the seller has like 30 sales with almost 5 stars, I heard vintage Lanvin wasn't really lanvin factories but something subcontracted or something like that by the way?
    Also the quality seems quite good but just checking to be sure, thanks!

    The issue i am encountering is different.
    I just bought a Gucci hoodie from a private person and i feel like i have been scammed?

    I Need Legit check on this jacket, if its fake or not. Please help?
    This jacket fits like S/M and i came to know from the seller that this jacket had been shrunken in the washing machine.The jacket is in size. XL as written on "inside label". It's also written on the "washing tag" that jacket is 100% cotton as well.

    But ... On the Gucci website, they sell the same jacket, and in the picture on gucci.com, the model has on the medium size jacket, and the model is 186cm. "This doesn`t give sense to me, because I am even 181cm and i use size. M as usual" It`s also written on the website that the jacket is made of 55% polyester and 45% cotton. Have i really been scammed?
    I have pictures of the jacket (washtag and label) below

    I've never seen that Brioni label, but the buttons look like horn to me. Also, the functional cuffs lead me to believe that it's real. The model is called the Tristan.

    Old Hermes tie with the 'H' lining.

    Anyone know whether it's the real deal?

    Meaningful help appreciated. :3
