http://i21.ebayimg.com/02/i/001/12/6a/abd4_1.JPG it is an Armani shirt: the expensive brand (Emporio, NOT Exchange) i heard if the letters are very big (similar to the one on the shirt), it is most likely fake. well, do you think its fake ? will I look like a poser with the brand name (huge letters) all over me ? lol how does the shirt look in general ? thanku

First off Emporio isn't considered one of the expensive lines of Armani. It was the budget line before A/X and AJ came out. Im sorry to tell you it looks like shit. Even if it isn't fake it is horrible. It it horribly tastless. Do you really need to tell the entire world that you are wearing Armani. I would stay away from it.

Buying this shirt should be an automatically bannable offense from SF.

Yeah, rach doesn't like posters who have the same items as him.

Exactly... when I wear a big EMPORIO ARMANI shirt to the next SF meetup, wouldn't it be embarassing to have two of us with the same shirt????? Anyway, to the OP and in all seriousness... what is it about this shirt that interests you, besides the logo? Emporio tees are, quality wise, absolutely nothing to get excited about... and that's the authentic ones! I like some of their simpler, more minimal sportswear (some of the technofabrics they use are interesting), but their cotton tees are basically like Gap $15 cotton tees, only priced at $125. And, having a logo that gigantic doesn't really say "stylish;" it says "Fashion Victim!"

what about this then: http://i406.photobucket.com/albums/p...is7/OZ245a.jpg

atleast it looks original ?


That looks majorly fake, too.

But, aren't you listening to us? If you want fashion tips... then the best tip is to steer clear of shirts with gigantic logos on them. That's not fashionable, that's not stylish... "Fashion Victim" isn't a look that you should really be shooting for. Let your entire SUBTLE outfit, your personality, and your accessories and grooming do the talking. Letting EMPORIO ARMANI speak first probably won't send the message you want to send.
