Need some help here. I found this GA Le Collezioni suit on Ebay. I bought it but before pay it I wanted some of you to offer your advice. First off, I am not even sure that the GA suit make such a strange wallet pocket like that, is that normally use lining material? also the LC white label looks appears to be a fake cos it should be above the pocket but this one puts it lower than the pocket! Anyone able to verify this for sure? .

The seller to provide a photo of the material contents label but I can't figure out the style number of the suit and recognize this label as being legit or not.

Any thoughts? See the link attached.

I'm 99.9% sure its genuine.

Just look at the other items he has sold, he also has a high and good feedback.

If it was fake he would generally have multples of the same item and not forgetting this is USED!

It looks genuine. Plus if you read the details of the auction, the seller clearly states the following in the section About Me:

"Like all of my auctions, this suit is totally authentic."

In the future, just ask the seller if an item is authentic.

Looks good to me. Giveaways:
  • Right amount of padding in the shoulders (Armani is quite heavily padded, fakes usually aren't)
  • Grey rubberized band in the pants (nice detail, keeps the pants up, I'd imagine rubber stitching is difficult to replicate)
  • Zig-zag stitching on the labels (most designer-brand suits seem to do this but not seen it on fakes - guess it's more time consuming?)
  • Right font/branding on the label (most of the fakes use "GA" or some kind of eagle)
  • Jacket label matches the layout/texture of the one in my Armani Collezioni suit

Those look like machine made buttonholes. Should they be?

Yes, if you research here you'll fine Le Collezioni is not that high quality. It's machine made with fused fronts. The black label, mainline Armani is a little better but on the whole with armani you are buying the name, cut, and to a degree the fabrics.
