Also looks authentic to me. The Non-Shatnes label, which I've never seen on any Kiton garment, was probably added by the boutique or the previous owner. A bit of an older garment, but not too old. The cut isn't dated, so it's fine.

Hello I've read that Kiton is heavily counterfeited. I purchased this jacket on ebay and I wonder whether or not it is authentic.
It looks authentic to me, but one can't be so sure ;)
Here are the pictures from ebay:
You have nothing to worry about with old, used tailoring. Large-scale Kiton fakes are on casualwear / jeans / outerwear and are presented as NWT or NWOT.

Are you suggesting that the same person who would wear a Kiton branded track suit is the same person who would be open to wearing a counterfeit version of it? :hide:

I wanted to ask if someone could confirm if the ebay seller SartoriadiLusso sells genuine items?

Can you help me please? I'm interested in this Jacket from LB

The seller say it is made by Attolini,is that true?

P/S:if it is true, do you think it is up to the levelof the "real" Attolini themselve?

first of all, yes, it’s genuine. Collezione Sartoriale was LB’s couture line. I’m not sure it’s around anymore, perhaps under a different name. I’ve had a few pieces in the past and they are high quality.

As for who made it? I’m not sure. Brands like that will often use different shops based on cost and other factors. If it was made by Attolini, it was made by them to the specs that LBCS called for and not necessarily to the same specifications as Attolini.

Christ that looks cheap! Probably fake. In the unlikely event that it’s real, I’m sure Chanel would love to disown it and claim it’s fake too.
You'll be surprised at the trash that Chanel pumps out now... they also used to sell these horrendous PVC bags for I think over 5K USD. When I first saw one I thought it was fake, until I checked their website out of curiosity.

Definitely the Attolini made for LB. As to whether or not it is a comparable product, lots of discussions on threads Here years ago. What I would opine, having handled both is that LB C S is high quality stuff whether made by Attolini or Saint Andrews (I am sure others.). Even if it is not 100% up to Attolini mainline standards it is a high quality garment that would be in the top level (assuming you don’t have twenty levels) of RTW clothing. Only a tailor or SF regular might be able to tell the difference and even then, probably need close inspection.

However, please be aware that this is 99% an orphaned suit jacket and while not impossible, requires expert level sartorial knowledge and ability to wear with odd trousers.
