    Hi,

    I just purchased a Tom Ford shirt online for $300 and I am confused as to whether it is authentic or not.

    The shirt was advertised on Ebay as $575 retail. It came completely wrapped up in plastic (unopened) however did not come with "Tom Ford" tags.

    The shirt as far as i am aware has MOP buttons and is made in switzerland.

    Here are some pictures:

    Any help in identifying the shirt as authentic or replica would be greatly appreciated. The Ebay seller is a highly reputable designer mens-ware seller with a 100% rating and they have assured me it is authentic but I am still unsure, and there is no Tom Ford shop here for me to take it into and verif

    I have seen very similar tom ford shirts for sale made from other materials (silk/cotton blend) and made in other countries (turkey and italy)

    Thank you!

    Any help at all would be appreciated or examples of shirts purchased directly?

    I have contacted the seller and they have said they purchased the shirts directly from Tom Ford. Can someone confirm whether or not they wholesale their shirts or whether this is just a fib? The issue is in my country there are only TF boutique shops and these are not sold in any department stores, therefore it is hard to verify authenticity.

    Thanks mate, Is there anything I should look out for when buying these shirts in the future?

    Or anything TF for that matter? I'm also from Australia btw.
