    Hello everyone,

    I just bought a prada suit from yoox, the problem is that there's no originale tags of prada, there's only a tag of yoox, it is the my first time to buy a prada suit, and I'm wondering if yoox is selling a used product, so does anybody have the same experience that received the goods without original tags from yoox with me? Here below are some pictures of my suit, hope someone can give me some informations, thank you all in advance!

    That's a real Prada, no question.

    Are the pants unhemmed? If so, it's probably not used. The tag could have fallen off at any point during its journey from the manufacturing plant.

    There isn't a rule for Yoox.

    The items came from stores of all over the world so every shop has their inventory methods, someone leave the tags, other detach them before sending items to wharehouse.

    It seems authentic.
    The problem you could (very rarely) encounter with Yoox is that they mislabel their garments. I once bought a "Loro Piana" leather coat (which was returned twice before me i.e. reappeared after being sold) that was made by some low level company with the Loro Piana tanned leather, the construction was awful and the back of the leather pocket had a rectangular piece cut off, apparently with the manufacturer's label on it.

    Yup, the fabric tag suggests it's a Prada garment and made by Cantarelli. I can be mistaken but is it half canvassed?

    thank you for your response, yes, it's half canvassed, but could you please specify which number or letter on the fabric tag suggests it's made by cantarelli? Thanks again!

    That doesn't look like a Cantarelli tag. And it doesn't look like a Belvest tag either (Belvest makes or used to make suits for Prada).
