1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

Lots of Kiton and Barba ties $1.00

    I am a little suspicious of this seller, especially with his Luciano Attolini suits...[​IMG]

    Yeah, how come he doesn't show the actual tags on the ties, just a generic closeup of a tag without any indication of where it comes from?

    chorse123,

    I was too, however I took a gamble on a Barba "gold label" shirt. It was 100% authentic. Even came in the Barba shirt box.

    I would however stay away from those Luciano Attolini suits.

    I bought 3 barba shirts from this seller. They are on their way. If I see a hint of fake, they are going back. As for L. Attolini .. well, they are not Sartoria Attolini or Cesear Attolini and the label clearly says that it's L. Attolini. No harm done IMO.

    Except for the fact that the heading says "Sartoria Attolini". Sure, he's not claiming it's the other, but it's misleading. Just my two bits.

    chorse-
    'Sator' on AAAC took the plunge and from his review sounds like it's no Casare, but it's still an outstanding Neapolitan-cut suit with a fair amount of handwork. It's not like he's selling them for C. Attolini prices, so I think he's legit.

    I sent him an inquiry; he said he's a licensed dealer for L. Attolini and asked what I was looking for. No response to my request though, so who knows.

    They need to show a pic of the back of the tie and the label if they expect us to believe they are real...
