so what’s the difference and the value of this coat? i thrifted it for 10 euro
Loro Piana makes and sells cloth, and also makes clothing.
Unless you're talking about a very exotic cloth (Vicuna, etc), usually the cloth itself has relatively little bearing on the resale value of a used garment.

What do you mean by "value"? 10 euro is a great price for a coat if it fits you and you like the style, as @florent wrote. If you are concerned about the resale value of the coat, then resale value is ultimately dependent on what someone else is willing to pay for it. If you don't know the maker of the coat, it probably won't be worth too much even if it is made from LP fabric. You can try searching eBay to see how much similar coats have sold for.

Hi members,



Could you help me, please? I'd like to buy a pre-loved Loro Piana dress from baby cashmere and I don't know if it's authentic.

I'm usually able to authenticate LP clothing by an inner tag. But the problem is the dress doesn't have the inner tag. The seller
tells me that there wasn't any tag when she bought it in a boutique.

Is it a real LP collar tag? I can buy the dress and touch it, I don't think that the feeling of LP baby cashmere can be faked

Hi, the tag attachment thread seems to be in the wrong place. It is usually at the very edge and not in middle of the label.

Thanks a lot! I wrote the seller and she sent me additional photos. She found the inner tag, she was looking for it in the skirt, but it is near the waist. Could you have a look at them? They seem legit for me, despite the centered attachment tag.

I'm guessing that if it were made for YSL there would be an acute accent on the "e" as what the label wants to say is the past participle "made" not the noun "factory". Markup pays for important things like this.
Fabrique means fabricated not factory. Please do not assume everyone is as dumb as you

I’ve been a member here for idk like 5 years I’ve posted similar fits but now because i have a brand you wana be a hater ?? When there’s SLP fanboys and Rick fanboys etc spamming everyday ?? Lames
Your brand name is honestly the most LA trash sounding thing I can think of. You're basically making logo tee's. Nobody here cares. Go sell them on the boardwalk or something.

if i made logo tees or cut & sew garments you would still be a hater…

you guys are focusing on one garment i made when I’m wearing Saint Laurent jeans and shoes ??? So if the hoodie was Saint Laurent it would be acceptable to the forum ?? ?

make it make sense

Oh, the black denim you're wearing that nobody can see well because it's in front of a black painted vehicle at night?

You're trying to push the brand name more than the actual fit. It's sad, honestly.

Black jeans with black hoodie and black/yellow high tops. Ground breaking stuff from you.

Actually it’s sad that you’re such a loser that you think I’m sad….. that i went out to dinner with a friend and he so happened to take a picture of me that i shared….. in a what are you wearing today thread….. and yes it’s really groundbreaking, like 90% of the posts here
