    Who cares. You should not buy a new Hugo Boss jacket for that price.

    I love Hugo Boss. And I'd pay 350 for a new jacket if I absolutely loved it. Otherwise, they generally aren't worth that much. So as a person with a bias towards HB...don't buy it.

    I appreciate everyones input as to whether or not I should buy a Hugo Boss jacket for a certain price but my question was not about whether or not I should buy it.

    Is anyone willing to share their opinion as to the AUTHENTICITY OF THE JACKET?

    Thanks.

    The stitching of leather tab on the lining is pretty poor. However, Hugo Boss are not known for the quality of their garments so I will say it is probably authentic. I would baulk at that price, 100bucks max would be more sensible. I would search eBay and one of those jackets will come up soon enough for far cheaper.

    Would you mind embedding the pictures in your post so I can see them in my browser. I'm too lazy to download a load of attachments to my own PC.

    Thanks! I read about things to watch for with the Hugo Boss orange line. The zipper pulls should have the words "hugo boss" etched into them and these are blurred in all the pics. Also, there is no visible small "hugo boss orange" emblem on the side of the jacket. I asked the buyer if they would mind posting pics of these items 4 days ago and I have heard no response. They were pretty eager to respond to my question about shipping costs but not to that question. Makes me wonder if it's a fake now.

    You really should not be buying HB and then come ask for input here.

    Are these Burberry authentic / fake ???

    AOkay, so I've found these sellers from Japan putting several Burberry up and down eBay auction, many same models are repeatedly appear and somehow it seems kinda weird. Never bought Burberry and especially from Japan so any opinions help :)

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Burberry-Lo...49?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item337dcbc571


    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BURBERRY-LO...01?pt=US_CSA_WC_Outerwear&hash=item3a7bdff95d

    I have spot the same models appear over three times this month already. This seller many have two more ID if my memory correct. It's almost one sold out they just replicate or produce another @@

    Advice Please: Is this Prada Suit Authentic?

    I bought this suit on eBay. The photos looked good to me and the seller had lots of positive feedback but now I am having second thoughts. Your opinions would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks!
