    Saw this on Ebay and assuming this is a fake due to the low price and the seeming unlimited quantity. There were also questions on the B&S thread about the authenticity of another Thom Browne shirt he/she was selling and is now off his listings. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

    It's an auction - not a BIN?

    I realize its an auction, but the completed listings have sold for approx $100. Seems a little cheap since I believe it is difficult to find TB on sale, especially more than 50% off list. I can't tell a real TB from a fake, but other experts on here have raised an air of uncertainty over whether this person sells some fakes, it puts the "cheapness" in a different light. He's also gotten some neutral feedback over authenticity concerns. Probably won't bid it unless someone knows its real for sure.

    I believe its fake seller is selling oxford shirts written made in japan when they are in fact made in the usa, also authenticty was questioned in the "neutral" feedback

    Thanks for the help, that settles the debate. I see that Barneys is selling some Thom Browne on sale right now...now that has to be real [​IMG]

    hmm was wondering about that too.
    I remembered TB polos being 2 sizes smaller(size 2 would fit a size 0)
    The ones listed fit pretty true to size

    I've seen TB polos that say made in Japan. They could be real.

    Edit: Actually, I'm pretty sure they're real. I've seen them at Holt Renfrew (a Canadian boutique). The seller is from Quebec. He/she probably got it during winter clearance.

    Good to know. Whether or not it's real/fake, too many red flags popping up.
