    Looking for Levi's experts!
    Just wondered if anyone has ever seen this pattern or tag by Levi's. It smells like a fake to me but I love it so much I'm hoping... Thanks!

    Sperry Top-siders, purchased locally for 260RMB.

    I'm thinking they're either knock-off or rejects or seconds from the Chinese factory that makes the shoes for Sperry. They didn't come with any documentation or tags. Printed inside the tongue is "G11 CH12, LEATHER UPPERS, MADE IN CHINA"

    Boat shoes was something I didn't expect to find in Inner Mongolia.

    By outlet, do you mean a Brioni outlet store? Pretty much certainly authentic, if thats the case.

    Can anyone tell me if this is authentic Burberry item or not?
    I am currently a university student in Chicago and have become fascinated with Burberry's Wool coats.

    Here's the listing below: Is the item authentic or fake? Can anyone verify this? I am a bit suspicious of the seller despite the good feedback ratings he or she has received on E-Bay. Why the suspicion? Well, it's the fact that items very much similar to this one have been sold to other members, but in different sizes.

    Apparently the seller states that it the model/style of the duffle coat is found exclusively in Japan.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221095799906

    I would rather not expend my money on a fake. So please offer your opinions in regards to the item itself!

    Thank you!

    I don't know much about Burberry, but I thought their Japanese-only range was the 'Blue Label' one; seems strange that the seller would list an item without referencing it as 'Blue Label'. I may well be wrong though.

    Paul Smith The Whilloughby - Real or Fake

    HI all,

    New to the forum so apologies if this is posted in the wrong place. I didn't really think about it at the time, for reasons that escape me! But, I recently purchased this Paul Smith suit from eBay and now am questioning its authenticity.

    I haven't taken delivery of it yet so can't get a feel for the fabric - assume it's hard to tell from these pictures, or maybe not for some SF gurus!

    Anyway, here is the link to the item,

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280943357537?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

    If it cant be viewed then I have saved the pictures here....

    http:[email protected]/


    Any help would be appreciated!

    Cheers

    Tom

    I just bought a Kiton Jeans, how can I know thats authentic?
    Hello guys I bought my first Kiton clothe, a jeans. I paid $ 300.00 new with tags on Ebay. The seller guarantee it's authentic. His feedback has more than 7000 points and 99.2% Positive feedback. It arrived today, and when I tried, it looks great, but I can't tell its authentic. I would like to know if I post pictures of this jeans, someone can tell if it's fake or not. If you know Kiton jeans, please specify the details that I should take picture to analyze. Thank you very much.

    Is my Emporio Armani gift fake (I know you are probably sick of these!).
    Hi,

    Received this Jumper from my sister as a present and I am not sure if it is real. I dont think she would buy me a fake, as I would prefer genuine high st garment.

    The certificate feels embossedl[​IMG]

    AI've bought five pair of Kiton jeans on Ebay and i have no question they are real. I personally think that if you're going to counterfeit jeans, it wouldn't be Kiton, it would be Gucci or some trendy brand.

    AI bought five pairs of Kiton jeans at a night market in China for $50 bucks. The seller guaranteed they're authentic..JK.

    However Kiton is in danger of becoming a trendy brand, especially in China. It's already happened with Brioni. Counterfeit Kiton certainly does exist. There's quite a few fake Kiton jeans listed on Taobao.
