    Hey there! What do you guys think?

    Seller says the manufacturer tags have been removed.

    If im not mistaken this coat is from the fall winter 2012 line. But when i compare it to pictures of the real one, the seams look off, the jacket is not double breasted, and is the zegna logo tag supposed to look like that?

    Can any experts help me out with this? Could this have been a first run or a modified coat?

    Thanks!

    Does it smell of leather or plastic...maybe try a burn test.

    I think I've been scammed on ebay (Dolce & Gabbana shoes)

    Opened them up and the leather feels like plastic. The lettering inside the shoe is embossed right in it (not on a tag/plate like the usual pairs I have purchased on Rodeo) and is missing the trademark symbol.

    Amazingly, the seller had another pair after I bought mine. Here is the new listing:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BNIB-895-Do...145&rk=1&rkt=5&sd=221277723996&#ht_396wt_1015

    What do you guys think?

    D&G shoes aren't known for using great leathers. And it's a patent leather shoe too.

    But couldn't tell you if it was fake.

    This doesn't look right at all.

    Here's the sticker on the outside of the box. Googling 80309 BORDEAUX SCURO brings up a bunch of websites in foreign languages -- everything BUT Italian and English. Is that normal?

    The insert tag has Asian lettering, which scares me! D:

    Is that Thai? ...a Thai tie. Sometimes they do write care instructions in the language for the country the item was intended for sale.

    Ah... Didn't know that! :O

    I thought they (the tags) were all the same.

    Thank you! :D

    The vendor where those shoes came from, seems to have a heck of a lot of apparently new, never worn designer shoes. Over 300 pairs.
