    Those shirts were made last year on the date 1st April 2010. They are precisely one year old - and yes of course they are authentic.

    Those are real. Who would fake Etro?

    So that coat is genuine?
    What did you mean? That coat is old? You meant the style is old?

    Thanks.

    It was NWT I see, price was borderline OK then. Does not stop the jacket being more than 3 years old though. I have not seen that particular style long jacket in Armani outlets for a good number of years. If you bought it, wear it and like it. No need for questions, you either like or not like.

    Oh a trip to Turkey a while ago revealed market sellers whom were unapologetic about selling rip off Ben Sherman shirts. I remember the one seller saying - buy "like" Ben Sherman for half the price of real [​IMG]. Im sure if Ben Sherman is ripped off, Etro also. Just that Etro fakes would be rarer than Rolex or D&G fakes. Probability alone says most Etro online are real apart from obvious Turkish/East European/Chinese/Thai fake sites.

    I wear 38r normally. This coat is tagged as 38r, but the seller says it is 38s. It seems like the size is designer-dependent. Is that right, then?

    You see where he wrote PLEASE SEE MEASUREMENTS, that means he took measurements. And its shorter than a normal 38R.
