    Why do you say that? Looks right to me. I mean, there's no way to tell either way without better photos I think.

    I've never encountered fake Ferragamo dress shoes. And if they are fake, the likelihood that they would use something like pebbled-grain leather seems slim. I'm going with real.

    As for the Brioni suit, same thing. Brioni is a very high-quality suit, but it doesn't have enough name recognition to be faked. I've never seen a fake Brioni suit being sold.

    ^^

    Is that fake, or something they make for salesmen who can't afford TF prices? The description says something about "designed specifically for Tom Ford associates." I mean, if you were trying to fake Tom Ford, why would you clearly label it "made in China?"

    I don't think it's fake. Probably made for SAs at the boutique. Very common in boutiques.

    Also, it has split waist constuction; pretty good fake if you ask me.

    ^^ Tom ford tags I've see has a octagonal shape. (like if you take out the edges of the rectangle) and that seems pretty fake to me

    Don't think it's really a Tom Ford suit that customers would buy. It more than likely is something that their SAs would wear in the stores...."designed specifically for Tom Ford associates." Starting bid of $1,000 is rather much though for what it is.

    That's what I remember reading somewhere here in the forums. They're made specifically for sales associates to wear at work as uniform.
