    That's a woman's cardigan. That label looks rather worn out, and silver thing looks like the back of a security tag. Thrift store?

    I don't think anyone is going to fake an old worn out woman's cardi.

    I don't know anything about Burberry purses, but I'm going to go with fake. I know some Burberry is made in China, but it just seems off.

    Could a knock-off or maybe a reject, second or second shift prodution from the sweat-shop that makes handbags for Burberry. Mind you I suspect most Burberry is made in China now, except the top-end Prorsum line probably.

    Not sure if it's fake or real - but based on the cut of the lapel and the shoulders as previously pointed out - this suit jacket is really old and it shows. Not worth it.

    can you provide proof? cause i don't see very many people in africa wearing knit caps. not to mention the quality of this cap is outstanding. and versace indeed does make beanies.

    well first, this is a women's blazer, not a cardigan. second of all, thierry mugler is a world renowned haute couture fashion designer. who, most recently has worked with prominent fashion names such as nicola formichetti and lady gaga. so. if you don't know what you're talking about. please don't comment on my posts. and no, i didn't thrift it.

    This looks authentic. And as Mike comments, nobody is knocking off vintage Mugler. I think it's probably early '90s, though.

    Burberry makes so much crap now that it's kinda hard to say with any authority, but from just looking at pictures and not handling it, I'm guessing fake. That Mexican import tag is weird to me -- does someone who lives in Mexico know something about them? I think I can see some messed up stitching in the first pic. Maybe a reject sold on the black market? I'd hit up a handbag forum...

    ^ I thought the versace hat might be real - the giant printed logo is pretty over the top - but VJC is pretty over the top.

    Giorgio Armani is a world renowned fashion designer and has worked with many celebs, as did the late Gianni Versace, he famously worked with Elton John. IMO but doesn't make most of their old and vintage stuff special though does it? Unless it was a one-off piece specially made for the celeb concerned. Is there anything particularly special about your Mugler garment? And if you didn't thrift it, hopefully you didn't pay too much money for it. As I said earlier the label looks rather threadbare and chewed up, presumably the garment itself is still in fair shape. Thierry Mugler also does perfumery and cosmetics, their products don't seem to be particularly expensive or exclusive. I've never seen any knock-off Mugler, non that I'm aware of.
