    I know a lot of ppl in this forum arent big fans of couture brands. I dont really like them either when im looking for suits. etc but I'm a big fan of couture jeans. A lot of couture brands now have holograms on them to prevent counterfeiting

    It really doesn't look like this is real but can it be? It has the authenticity hologram but every other sign says its a fake.. am i wrong?

    I'd be very suspicious. There's no pictures of anything that confirms authenticity (certificates, holograms, etc). The seller's feedback is private. He's selling many other 'couture' brands in batches - D&G pieces spanning many different sizes, at a low starting bid. My thoughts are that he's getting knockoffs from Turkey. Unless he can come up with something that proves its authenticity, I'd say assume that they're fake.

    Man, I didn't even know this was an option on ebay. If that isn't a red flag, I don't know what is.

    Links aren't working for me, but there are plenty of fake items out there with "authentication" holograms. Holograms are dirt-cheap these days.

    Anything that might be given away in a box of cereal should not be trusted as an authentication device.

    what if they're real? you wouldn't wear those in public would you? Let's try to make the perfect outfit with those jeans as a starting point.

    Link finally worked.

    This guy does a lot of selling, private feedback or not, but what really sketches me out is that the "item is located in Europe" although the account is Canadian and yet they won't ship to Canada?
