    Here is an auction for a Ferragamo belt. It seems very inexpensive. Was wondering if anyone had any opinions on whether or not it might be fake. A similar belt would cost close to $200 at Nieman Marcus.

    Looks real enough. I've bought their belts from the Chicago boutique. You cut them to the size you want, and then the buckle clips on. I have one that is reversable. I have never seen a buckle that bends like that, but they make so many kinds. You might call a boutique and describe the one on ebay, see if they have any recollection.

    I would be very suprised if it were real. Given the price, the location, the fact that it's a private auction, and the seller's big supply of commonly faked items, I think it's one too many red flags.

    Nah, that's biologically impossible.  Why would they lie about it on camera anyway?

    I agree, it's just too ambiguous. I wouldn't trust it, even though I cant find any specific points to call the seller out on.

    All acting is lying. I don't know...if they haven't, ummmm, completed their end of the bargain by the time the chap is done his work, then they'd have to fake it.

    I think I read an interview with one porn starlet that said she faked many of them.

    Just like belts from Singapore. (I had to bring the post back on point).

    Say, that certainly is a 'prestige' belt.

    I like the buckle, though. Honestly, at that price, I might go for it even if it were fake or a no name brand, if I could see the strap. Who's trying to impress people by wearing Ferragamo, anyway?

    Super high quality Hermes and Ferragamo fake belts are ubiquitous in South Korea and Thailand. I cannot believe how much people pay for fake Hermes belts on eBay. The belt you are looking at is almost certainly fake - but very good quality.
