    Really? Last time I checked Italian sizing normally fit at least one size smaller.

    HI!

    Bought this sweater on Ebay but in my opinion is it fake comparison to my other Givenchy sweaters. Would be thankful if someone could leave some thoughts on this.
    If I got it right, gap between the tag in the neck means it fake, right?

    The tag to the right is from an old sweater and the left is from the one I think is fake.
    Seems to me that someone has put down a lot of work to make this look like a real one.

    Thanks in advance

    Is this Kiton jacket fake or authentic? I have never seen hand stitched Kiton logo on the jacket

    I'd still say it's fake. Also he is selling "his collection" of LV stuff. Yet he doesn't wear it??
    I think this guy is very suspicious, even if he acts like an expert with his gloves and pictures etc.

    But there are also some real things listed:

    Maybe he buys deadstocks?

    AFAIK that's not suspcicious, Givenchy happens to be very popular in China, and not everyone here can read English or French. :D The phone number looks like a French area code and number.

    I hope you didn't actually buy a Kiton Vicuna jacket when uncertain of authenticity. But it's real- I'm pretty sure the handsewn kiton is sort of akin to Cifonelli's signature in their lining. But that handwork looks spot on, all the tags look fine etc...

    Real. I hope you didn't buy that thing if you were honestly questioning its authenticity, that'd be one hell of an expensive mistake.
