Hey everyone,

First of all id like to say I'm glad to be here - this is my first post on this forum so Hello everyone!

Secondly I have a question about this site I came across a while ago - www.italiancart.com - it has Versace, Armani, and some other brands at a discount price. Have any of you guys bought from here? Are these legit suits with great quality or would I just be wasting my money in buying one?

Someone please help me out - trying to buy my first suits so im not trying to waste my money here.

Thank you,
Shotty

Lack of (or extremely well hidden) bricks & mortar address is generally a sign of a company to avoid at all costs.

Their spam is relatively subtle though

Also just checked out that site, and it screams "FAKE". For example, I'm not a huge Boss fan, but have had some of their suits over the years. On the ones they have pictured, the font on the label looks wrong and I've never seen a real Boss suit that has "Hugo Boss" imprinted on the buttons like theirs does. I'd stay far, far away ...

Glad it helped. Spend some time reading the forums, don't assume a suit is good just because it has a well known label. No matter how much you want to spend you always want the best deal for your money - whether it's $300 or $3000.

Holy Hell that is some of the worst knock off stuff I have ever seen. It is bad, really bad.

They probably should be reported, but some of the labeling is so off that they may be outside of copyright infringement, but I don't really know about that stuff. And some of the detail shots show uneven machine sewn lines...

Of course, the products are fake. Have you ever seen a Giorgio Armani, Boss, or Versace suit for less than $200? As another posted noted, the buttons are embossed on these suits, something that is not done with the genuine suits. I have several Boss and Armani suits, and the buttons are plain. Too, some of the Giorgio Armani suits have the "Emporio Armani" "wings" trademark, and that's a completely different division of Armani. Would you ever order a product from a website that has misspelled words on the page? Finally, the fact that they only accept money via Western Union is a clear indication that it's clearly a fraud.

Hi everyone, this is my first time on and for a bad reason!
DO NOT BUY FROM HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was stupid enough to think it was a real site. A friend of mine saw the site and thought it looked lagit, it's NOT!!!! I payed $300 and havn't revieved anything in 3 weeks. They keep sending me the same email that they have recieved funds and will email me my shipping details but they never do. I have tried everything the last couple of days to get a reply from them and nothing!!! I'm so pissed off!!!

WARNING DO NOT BUY!!!!!! IT'S A FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I honestly wonder how may people they have ripped off on that site. Hilarious stuff. Wonder what Asian country they ship from.

Some suit jackets have working button holes. That is always a sign of high end quality.
