    First post, so let me know if I'm out of line here. Was wondering if I made a good purchase off eBay. Was listed as a $3000 Versace Couture. Paid $162 with shipping. Couldn't find a pic matching this label anywhere. I looked all over Google, and tried to look here too, but my phone wouldn't show the pics. Anyway, thanks for any info/advice/knowledge.

    If it fits, then fine. If not, it doesn't really matter what the label is.

    Waiting for it ship.. wasn't sure if it was a couture made by Zegna or if it was an older version. I also tend to buy from this seller a lot, so I guess it would be a good time to find out if they are legit

    You are better posting photographs of the fabric/ size label.

    My definition of a "good deal": If you like what you got for the money you spent, you got a good deal. It really doesn't matter if it is "authentic". But if you are the type of individual who ,when you are wearing the suit, hands out cards saying" This is a $3000 Versace suit" and you are concerned that someone will "out" you for making a false statement, you should do more research.

    No I am not the type to flash the tags and hand out cards.just more curious about what I bought and what I'm wearing. I appreciate the feedback that a good deal is somthing that fits, so thank you. Does anyone one have any info on the suit though.Do I need to check more tags when it arrives, or can it be identified by the tag in the picture? Thanks

    As far as the "authentic" quote above.. I am surprised that you would feel it is OK to slap a fake label on a fake fused suit and call it an Italian suit as long as I got my money's worth.. I thought the quality of the material and production would matter at least a little bit..
