    Ahhh I've accumulated so much stuff in the past two years. I just want to get rid of it all but am too lazy for eBay. Might just drop it all at a local consignment...or get a storage unit.

    ChetB, label pics of the Versace tie? Thats one of the most faked patterns, just to be safe.

    Thanks @ridethecliche . Good call.

    @SpooPoker I had my doubts. They were next to a couple of obvious fakes, so I should have guessed. I know nothing about Versace but the tipping looks super sketchy.

    also check underneath the big tags if they're not sewn down all the way around. i've seen smaller size tags there also.

    Yup, as predicted, the black and gold one is fake - FYI, Versace will never ever have a blue label. The maroon/blue one is legit.
