Think it's fake.
My T&A 50oz tie is, hands down, the nicest feeling, most substantial, and overall just most wearable tie I own...and I have a lots of ties (north of 150). Nice find...it's an incredibly nice tie and ties an excellent knot.
I'm interested why you say so. I haven't seen much Dior Homme on this thread and have never seen it in person, but from what I remember of the very few confirmed ones, this looks similar.
I hit too many stores today, here are a few of the things that made the trip home with me.
More to come....

Steve Smith has the best solution to this. On his shoe postings, he says up top that he is happy to provide sole measurements for $5, with that payment applicable to the purchase price if the would-be buyer actually pulls the trigger. I am happy to be corrected, but I not believe that anyone has asked for measurements under those terms. He also explains why sole measurements are useless.
I have never sold shoes to anyone who asked for sole measurements. In my experience, anyone who asks is not a serious buyer.
I am not a high output seller but I replied to one and he bought the shoes for a decent price. So I do respond.
+1, I have a regular buyer, who constantly asks me for outsole measurements even though I try to explain to him it is pointless.
Right. That is why I put this in my comment: Of course you couldn't do the Paypal me $5 thing on ebay.
Isn't the good stuff the one that has a silver background?
Here is pair that sold on ebay. Boots
Yeah, which that one is. That's definitely the Homme (ie: the good stuff) tag, but for some reason rayxlui thinks it's fake...I'm trying to figure out what about it he thinks is fake since it matches up with what I've seen. The only fake I've seen on this thread had a pretty obvious Chinese materials/care tag and really bad stitching on the Homme tag. This one doesn't have either.
Wierd, I can't get that to pop up even when I copy the listing title word for word. Wonder what's up with that.
I'm pretty sure the Dior Homme tag is higher up. Should be on where it touches the back of your neck. Plus the tag doesn't look right. It's a dull grey. And the maker tags are silver as well, not white. The real ones I've seen are a shiny silver
I have to say I agree with Ray, I think the shirt is most likely a fake. I am not 100% sure, more 60% sure.
The tag colors seem off but what screws with me is that the font seems pretty dang close to real font. It could be the photo playing with my eyes. Also not buying into that size tag.
Perhaps the most discriminating thing about that shirt is the shirt itself. This shirt just does not appear Dior like in design.
I could be wrong, hence why I go with 60% likelihood a fake.
