    I can't imagine anyone making fake Longhi, to be honest. That is indeed Longhi's logo.

    My friend bought a Lacoste sweater online and wonders if it's real? Now i'm not a Lacoste expert.

    Real or not?

    I can't find the ''sport'' on the tag on other sweaters online?

    Any chance you can get yourself to a lacoste store in person? They are all over the place, I would think.

    There's so much of this Lacoste stuff around, like sweaters and polos and much of it quite generic, difficult to tell if KIRF or not. Sure a lot of it is seconds or excess production from the factories as well. Don't know about the "Sport" thing, Lacoste is sportswear isn't it?

    Authenticity Check - Moncler Jacket
    Hi, new to the forum so I apologize if this thread is in the incorrect place. I needed some help in verifying authenticity for this Moncler jacket. I believe it is an older model so its hard for me to verify.

    Is there a serial nr? Because every Moncler item has one, even the caps. It could be checked out very easy here if there is one: http://www.certilogo.com/

    I hope this help.

    Is this real? Canali Suit.
    Hi all, I just purchased a Canali from eBay and I'm wondering if you can confirm the authenticity of this suit. It looks great, but I'm paranoid since it's my first time purchasing off of eBay. Also, how can I determine it myself moving forward? Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving (and Hannukah, for those that observe the holiday)!

    Looks legit to me. Is it fully canvassed? If it is, I would assume it is real.

    It feels like it, but I'm only going by the "instructional threads." OK, thanks.
