    Well, I guess this is an unusual request, but here goes anyways.
    The picture below is of an original Nobuyoshi Araki polaroid. But I've never seen an Araki polaroid signet on the front, only on the back, so I'm wondering if this one is a fake. But then again, I've not seen too many of his polaroids. Do any of you have a clue about it? I would be very thankful :-)

    Would say it looks fake? Hard to tell these kinds of thing from just a picture unless your a real hardcore fan of his work. How much are you paying for this? like 400?

    on another note, I've always considered his photos expensive porn... Very few pictures I've actually liked (atleast for the price).

    there is a way to tell which is to compare araki's sig to the one on the polaroid. shouldn't be too hard to find, but i don't feel like being watson so i'm not gonna dig it up.
    i'd bet that its correct. nobody's gonna forge that shit. nobody.

    Oh, here's a picture signed in recto. The signature looks somewhat identic, but not quite. But could still be good I guess. But I think I'll wait for a bondage pic. They're my favorite anyways...

    Request a pic of the RO signature that I believe is sewn into the inside of his leather jackets.

    ^only issue being if it's an O + M sample, there is often no sig

    True enough as long as the buyer indicates that it's a sample then. Would a sample also have the tags as shown in pic 4? My experience with samples (from other brands) is that they don't come with tags.

    Check out POLART

    I actually stumbled into this a couple of weeks ago

    It was like being in someone's "masturbation station"

    Fake or not its worthless

    yes, it probably would be tagless, except for maybe a hand written numerical size on a plain white tag

    Here are the pics of the Zipper and the Signature.
    Kind of blurry, the owner only has an iPhone.
    The signature is printed black on black and therefore hardly visible.
    The back of the zip says RY and "made in italy"
