    Thank you very much Mr.Spoo.

    I really appreciate the price-advice as well (Hermes is not my field).

    Help; is this black label Armani fake?

    Ahttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261017158222&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBSA:US:3160

    I tried to do a search first, and came up with this informative thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/160299/changes-at-armani

    I'm a bit concerned that the tag says "borgo 21" instead of borgonuovo as described in this ebay guide http://reviews.ebay.com/Fake-Armani...pos-s-Out-There-Part-2?ugid=10000000001112279

    Thanks in advance for any information! I know Armani isn't really SF-approved, but this is the main line, at a discount, and I think it'd be a good suit for evenings.

    Cheers,
    M

    The auction has ended, but that looks real to me. Im not an Armani expert though.

    I am aware of the "Zegna Tessuto" line, but this one has Zegna tags? Is this Zegna or someone making something out of Zegna cloth? Or just a fake Zegna?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. But recently my friend gave me this "Giorgio Armani" shirts that he said got from his uncle. Can you please tell me if it is real or not? Thank you.

    It says "LEOOLLEZIONI". The eagle has the initials "GA"

    That's a knock-off alright, no doubt about it, I bet "LEOOLLEZIONI" was supposed to spell Collezioni, and the GA eagle/phoenix logo is from Armani's Emporio line.

    BTW do you think my GA shirt might be a fake?
