    Hello,so i've purchased this Brioni jacket on ebay which was my first ebay purchase and first Brioni.Seller has 100% positive feedback so i thought it's authentic and new(it was written NWT).I received it today,well i like it,but the fact that it has only one tag without model written on it made me suspicious,also there are no tags in pockets and pockets are NOT stitched.although there is no obvious sign of wear on it.Here is the ebay link to it http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

    and here are few photos made by me

    Definitely authentic. Sartoriale is a great seller and usually has some mind boggling bits.

    Yes,he had some nice stuff.I've actually found a link to him here that's why i trusted him.He delivered pretty fast though he was sending it to Armenia.
    What about used or not?the tag and unstitched pockets made me suspicious...

    Thanks everyone,i really like the jacket and it's very good quality.

    That tag is a little shady but it is definitely authentic. Lovely jacket!

    I love that thread. [​IMG] so much fodder.

    I think it would look great with tan pants, light blue shirt, and a burgundy tie.

    Or, a white shirt and a red macclesfield dickey.

    Look great and if it's in great condition I wouldn't obsess on whether or not it's really new, just enjoy it.

    If Spoo says it's legit, you may allay all concerns.

    It's actually in perfect condition i have examined it very good,armpits etc. no sign of wear at all.Nothing that would indicate that it's used.I'll definitely buy from him again,but this time I'll be more careful and will look for sleeve tag etc. I'm so happy that this jacket is SF approved hooray!!![​IMG]

    That is real. However, that seller is a pinner.

    Pins the jackets in the back to give better looking waist suppression.
