It feels good to me too dude @kbadgley84 . Just well well worn. I wonder if there’s a way to properly clean the tarnish off the buckle (was thinking of using brasso). The buckle does feel substantial.

Yea I’d try basso, unless it’s chrome finished then maybe some water/baking soda/peroxide just light scrub until it cleans up

🤷‍♂️ You shouldn't have bought it if you couldn't tell.

There should be tags that'll help. You can ask the seller for them, but then again, you should have asked before you bid.

Not the paper tags, but the inner tags usually have more information than that. It doesn't look correct, but you may find it difficult to actually prove that it's fake.

New to the area of high-end classic menswear. I bought a Brioni Shearling. Would like to seek an opinion about its authenticity.

Why does it matter? If you like the coat, does it really matter if it's "authentic" Brioni? And why do people keep posting these "I bought something on eBay, is it authentic" threads? If you don't know, don't buy.

I think I will try return it.
and now you gave him a neg. feedback without having the item. ...
Very strong on your side

And, yes it looks a bit off, but with the limited picutres hard or impossible to tell, same as his other items. It is also reflected in the price. You get what you paid for...
