Can anyone verify this as real? Thanks.
Are these D&G real?
Can someone check this out? This is just a load of bullshiet, right?
I wouldn't trust it
Can I get a verification on this jacket I picked up for the wife?

Fake John Lobb shoes is it now. Think this is the first time I seen them.
Not necessarily fake merchandise, but a fake website such that money sent is money gone. I doubt you'd even get a box in the mail.
OK...and there's someone driving around Gaungzhou at your expense probably.
I have recently purchase a J.M Weston Chelsea boots from a French luxury resale website called "VestiaireCollective".
I don't usually buy shoes online as I would like to try them in store and see whether it fit me well. The reasons why I made my decision to purchase this boots are: first, the price is only half compare to retail price, second, the website claim they will check the product and make sure it is real, third, it is very hard to find my size in the store.
I register online, upgrade to premium account (they give you free shipping), paying money, and waiting for my boots. So far so fine, until today I receive the boots.
The Boots comes with no tag, no shoe tree ( I don't know whether J.M Weston offer free shoe trees or not, but I know Berluti and Corthay does), no original dust bag. Which I am not surprised. It looks like new as described. However, there is something surprise me(a lot). There is no insoles in it! The only thing I found is a small piece of leather(not like the leather used in normal shoes), the other parts are the parts normally under insoles (feel like paper or synthetic fiber). And then I found that the boots does not match the model in J.M Weston website.
I have been to the retail store in London before, I can tell there is no of shoes (insole) in store are like this one. So I am wondering maybe I have purchase a fake one, or just the boots is an old edition ?
Questioning the authenticity of a pair of women's Gucci heels I found at a thrift store. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Anyone have ideas?
No insoles? You mean removable insoles? You can clearly see that JM Weston branded sockliner, which covers the leather insole that JM W uses to make their footwear. All the branding looks good to me. I say 100% real. I just checked the website you bought them from. It is a "resale community", so that will explain why the shoes may not have come with tags or other NIB items.
Going by the photo ^, there is an insole in the shoes. And it looks like leather. The small piece of leather you mention is known as a "heel pad." It is there to act as a barrier between your foot, and the moisture it creates, from the nails that hold the heel of the shoe on. If that piece of leather extended all the way to the toe it would be called a "sock liner." What you see just forward of the heel pad is the insole--it looks like a heavy piece of insole shoulder. Even if it is leatherboard, it is still an insole.
Here are 2 pairs I have. Both look like yours. Heel nail pattern looks accurate too. You don't have trees or bags probably because it's a resale site.
