Looks like it was a custom order? If so the client probably picked the lining. I agree that there probably isn’t any market for knockoff Oxxford clothing. Finally if/once you have the jacket in your possession it should be very easy to tell based on construction whether it is genuine or not.
Thanks. I didn't consider the possibility that it might be a custom job.

Picked this up from an estate sale today. I obviously recognized the name, but I've never seen this style of label before. I've been researching it for hours and the closest I came up with is some WordPress site that has a label with similar cursive font, but claims it's an A. Caraceni. Having a hard time believing that. AFAIK A. Caraceni labels always had the handwritten date and client name on them.

It's an all black 3-button single breasted overcoat with herringbone lining. 4 button sleeve.

Appreciate any help.

I think it might be one of the Cantarelli made ones (as opposed to their Belvest ones). But the fact that it only has that white tag and not also the regular black one on top of it makes me very suspicious...

If it was a fake, it's a good one. I doubt a counterfeiter would replicate the cantarelli tag.

Is it at least half canvassed?

I asked the seller whether its fused, half or fully canvassed (waiting for response). The quality of the gabardine wool also looks on point so I would be very surprised to find out it was a fake too... but the fact it doesn't have the typical black tag makes me a lil sus.Here's some more pics of the jacket in case it helps

And the same seller also happens to be selling 2 more prada blazers like these:

Does anyone know if this Brunello cucinelli sweater is legit. I have never seen the tags in a lower case font. Ebay seller says size tag is missing. In addition under the brunello sweater I am looking at a burberrys sweater and was wondering if that would be legit too. Thanks!

Does this look like a real Kiton tag?

And does this look like a real Zegna tag?
