1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    As AGfS said, the Gucci stuff by Zegna is made in their mainline factories where the Z Zegna stuff is made in their factories in Mexico. All of the Gucci stuff I've seen has been quite nice.

    Thanks for the help guys, the Gucci is definitely well made and fully canvased.

    Both are real. The Gucci is about 20 years old, the dolce is their mainline, but they still fuse a lot of stuff, even the "gold tag" line.

    Not worried about authenticity but can anyone tell me how old this tag is?

    For my education, these are totally fake, correct?

    The horsey piece looks tacky and I can't imagine Burberry attaching crap like. Buttons say Burberry which I was surpised.

    Thanks man. I figured and left it there but wanted to check. I was surpised they put effort into making buttons branded with the name.

    Zegna is real but really old and ugly.

    Legit? Worth a mop to flip @ $20?

    I'm sure they would flip but at $20 I personally would not pick them up

    These scream fake, but I don't know shoes. Please tell me I'm wrong.

    Any of these suspect? The Salvatore F. Seems suspect. Also, are those Etro tags old or licensed or just fake?

    Etro and Coach look fine to me. Doubtful people fake Pink, Bugatchi, or Haines & Bonner. Unsure about Ferragamo.. do you have pics of content tag?

    Zegna is real. Think the Boglioli is as well, don't know if anyone fakes them... Ferragamo content tag looks right I think.
