the labels look right as does the lining. As for age, judging by the gorge, I’d say probably between 15-20 years.

There’s a lot of puckering going on and I wonder if the suit has had an unfoavroable history.

Thanks for the reply. Could you elaborate on the gorge? Because some told me based on the washing tag, it is about 8 to 10 years from now. And the seller claimed it is never worn just not kept well

Gorge: Where the lapel meets the collar.
Just offering my opinion.

Echoing the above, it’s real, and maybe 8-15 years old.

A picture of the button holes will help determine authenticity.

Stumbled on this forum as it seems it is the only place on the internet that know about Jacob Cohen jeans. I found a pair at a thriftstore some time ago. I believe they are ladies (so am I, and deep apologies if this forum is mens only). They say J711 but there are no pictures to be found anywhere. I see some with similar tags, but am starting to get suspicious. I should have known it was too good to be true (also have a pair of Dsquared2 I have started to doubt). Anyway I can post pictures, if it is allowed as a first post. I suspect fashionexperts here will be able to tell by glance. K.

Yes, post pictures, that is the only way you'll be able to get a response. I won't be able to give you an answer but perhaps others will.

Hi all,

New poster here. Lurked a bit.

Wanted to inquire as to the authenticity of this Brunello Cucinelli sweater sold by VirtualClothesHorse (eBay user and has own webstore).

I know Brunello Cucinelli did this sweater design in F/W 2016. I've been on the hunt for it in the burgundy variant but this was all I could find.

I am happy I've finally found a version of it but do not want to end up with a fake.

Thank you!

Hello,

I am hoping for some advice on the green jumper.

I bought it from BrandAlley (just trying them out) and the one thing I notice is the label inside the neck is different to the t-shirt (which is definitely real).

Also, if you look at the difference in the logos on the cards, even the colour is slightly off.

The packaging looks fine; however, the stickers say 'made in Tunisia' but my understanding is that all Aquascutum is made in China now. I may be wrong.

I should say though that the quality of the jumper itself is very, very good.

What do you think? TIA.

VCH has been around a long time and one of the few eBay merchants I’d tend to trust.

With that said, the CW is that all things like this sold on eBay should be assumed fake until proven otherwise.

Right on. Thank you for the information. I've reached out to VCH for some extra pictures/info so I can further verify; but it is good to hear he's generally reputable.

Cheers
