Conscious the photos are not great. What would you say? I haven't seen them faked before but then I have not actively searched the counterfeit market

Much appreciated

Hey everyone, I just bought this Kiton suit from iSuit on ebay for my wedding and it came without working buttons and seemingly unfinished sleeves. It was advertised as new and has tags. From everything I've read Kiton's suits all have working buttons, is that not the case? Shouldn't the unfinished sleeves set off some alarm bells? If anyone could help I'd greatly appreciate it!

No. On a new suit, it should never come with the sleeves finished so that your tailor can properly finish it off to your measurements. iSuit is a reliable and legitimate seller. I would never buy a suit with working sleeve holes already in place unless I know the sleeve measurements are perfect for me.

Ah ok great, well I guess I've been completely obvlivious to the details under the hood with my other suits. As to the lack of button holes, any concerns there?

The whole point is to not have button holes so your alteration tailor can shorten the sleeves to your measurements and put the buttons holes at the right place

Hello dear forum members, I'm looking for any expert to help verify the authenticity of this Loro Piana leather windmate. The description says it is reversible with leather and storm system fabrics. The seller mentioned it might belong to approximate the 2020 range. Could anyone please provide some advice?

not an LP expert by any means but the "XS" size tag looks off to me.
Besides, do you like the design that much? Looks pretty nondescript to me.

yes the tags are kind of my concern too… design wise, I think it’s quite staple but nothing to scream about.

Thank you

Hi all, any thoughts on this? Does RLPL usually have the US size (40R) rather than European?

Anyone able to advise on the legitimacy of the LP jacket? Description is double faced leather/windmate.
