I've seen quite some 'sample' jackets pop-up on grailed & ebay lately. Instead of a complete care tag, they have a sample tag:

Does anyone have experience with these, know how to judge authenticity?
I have bought a few sample pieces and have actually been very pleased with them. I would suggest only buying them from reputable sellers. That tag looks identical to the ones on my samples. I just purchased a SS16 sample that I am in love with. Just make sure to get all measurements because they can vary in size quite a bit.

To me it means a lot to me to be able to own pieces that are 1 of 1. They become a sentimental part of my wardrobe :)

Anyone handled this piece or know what season it was offered?

Curious about sizing and quality, think it's called the Black Tweed Teddy but haven't been able to find any info on it.

RT. I once sold a sample FW13 silk jacquard Le Smoking for $170... I needed the cash bad enough that it made sense at the time but it's the single most regrettable sale I made to this day. Sample pieces when made well are really top of the game imo.
