    So, I tried yesterday to post this but it didn't work.

    I found one guy on eBay that's selling what I think are fake Kiton's and fake Borrelli's.

    Here is the link.

    I have a Borrelli jeans, and it certainly looks different. This guy's jeans:
    1. no metal back plate
    2. generic buttons and studs
    3. no handwork on back pockets
    4. appear poorly made

    His Kiton suits:
    1. lining without Kiton logos
    2. super 200 without 13 micron tag
    3. cuffs seem poorly stitched
    4. on some jackets the buttonholes seem not to be handmade

    Please share your opinion.

    If this post still doesn't get through, I'll stop trying.

    The Kiton stuff looks legit. Only Kiton can get away with making buttonholes that look like squashed beetles.
