    Are you saying these are two different jackets.

    Looks real.

    The second one is Couture. It hasn't been Napoli for over a decade I think.

    Price for what? The label?

    They both are likely orphan suit jackets. The first label you posted is clearly from a suit.

    Price? You won't find much love here for just pinstripe jackets. If it's a full suit you will do better.

    Both seem to be some of the better Zegna fabrics. Trofeo and the 15 mil.

    But when you're talking used it's whatever you can get.

    Thanks Friend,
    I guess I've had 'wrong way' recently to pursue many 'orphan" jackets not the suits...
    I have many jackets / blazer but never had suits.
    Is it comfortable & match to wear Zegna jacket with jeans?
    What do your preffered / suggested pant/trouser for suitable with Zegna jacket?
    Thanks a lot...

    Is this mens gucci wallet real?
    Not sure if it came in a dustbag with an authenticity card or not.
    Here are the photos

    Additional info:
    - Material where the notes are to be placed is patterned with 'GUCCI' in a sans serif format.
    - The little circle above the Gucci logo in the metal photo has an R in it
    - The 'Gucci' on the metal part looks like its got little crystals in the writing
    - Stitching looks pretty tight
    - Bi fold wallet with a flip ID
    - 9 card slots
    - 2 note slots

    Not sure where it was purchased

    Reason I have my doubts is that I haven't seen this wallet on the official site, or in google images.

    Thanks

    Yeh the typography in the first pic is not good. The Gucci Made in Italy logo on the metal part is not straight either. Looks like a poor quality knock-off to me.

    Agreed. This looks so fake.

    Is this authentic?
    I hate to be cliche, but I bought a LV Monogram Keepall a while back and didn't think much of its authenticity at the time as it came with a receipt. Recently one of my friends said they though it may be a copy. Anyone got any knowledge? I've checked all the guides and they don't seem to indicate anything is wrong.

    P.S. it was bought from eBay as used two or three times.

    Here's a link to the pictures.
