The tag says it is from F/W08 from Filenes, I got it for $30 there. It was orig. $250
I need to figure out if it is real, before I just go and call my local GA BL store.

I did have a buckle that was in the same font when I was 14 it said my name SCOTT very cool.

Anyway it is a real Giorgio judging from the tags, Filenes keeps a pretty tight ship as far as fakes are concerned

It is so tacky I thought it was fake. The buckle is something I'd expect from Emporio and of course A|X, but not GA. The quality of the leather is amazing. It is nabuck and calf skin. extremely thick leather, indestructible compared to my EA belts. I think I am going to call up my local GA store and ask what collection this was from.

Replace the buckle for a more subtle one? I would, but maybe you're more into the flash I don't much go for.

You could maybe pawn that off on ebay, as well.

I personally hate logo's, although I have a guilty pleasure for some of E/A's strange and sometimes tacky belts because they are unique. But this is not something I would ever buy, not full price and not on sale, but it was really really cheap, and I rather have bought it for almost nothing than have to think about going back and getting it.
