    Influenced by the forum, I just won an eBay auction for a Borrelli tie.

    Seems genuine to me, considering the Neiman Marcus tag ...

    Is it a good deal for 63 USD ?
    Is it 7 fold ?

    I'm no tag expert, but looks beautiful and at a price that is a steal. Common sense dictates that it would be a lot of work to fake a NM tag, or to get one and put it on there. Then again, I'm a bit naive perhaps.

    Moreover, the eBay seller only sells ties and has an impressive track record. As he only sells renowned brands, I suppose you'd have one or another expert giving him negative feedback after buying a fake... That's why I assume it must be genuine.

    Can't wait to see it IRL ...

    To determine whether it is 7 fold, look up inside the back to see whether there are extra layers of folded silk inside. It should be fairly obvious.
