    Well, I understood why it is without tag etc. But the cover leather is very "unusual", it is like someone remove the removable insole and stick some leather on it. The rest of the parts is very "rough", if I use the right word. It feels like a dry cardboard that has been steeped in water for some hours. What is more, I found two nail point spiking in one of them. That makes me wonder there maybe some insole above that parts before.

    It sounds like the uppers have become quite dry. It is likely that they have been in storage for some time without any care. The shoes are authentic. I have owned 3 pairs and the stamp, and other details are correct. Are you feeling the nails in the heel?

    The dry clean/fabric composition tag looks a bit sketchy. You can probably find someone out there that knows LV better than anyone here.

    Hello, I just purchased a Gucci Suit off Ebay and, like a previous discussion, it has no felt under the collar, no "made in" anywhere, however, it has the peak lapels, buttons, clasp, inside tag, matching style labels. Curiously, it has button fly pants. It was advertised as a 2013 model but something is fishy. I'm annoyed because the suit fits me well but I'm bothered by the lack of a Made in Italy or Switzerland or anywhere. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You.

    Can anyone identify whether this seller's polo ralph lauren polo shirts are fake or not? I've searched online but the guides all show a tag that is slightly different ( only has a small part of the tag with the size attached). He has a high ebay rating which makes it hard not to believe but I am still doubtful. Thank you very much!! I have not bought any clothing from any ralph lauren label yet so I am still uncertain about checking the authenticity.
